Top Mobile Apps – Part 2

December 8, 2011

Of the three billion mobile phones in the world, just over one billion are smart phones!  And they keep getting smarter!  A recent poll by Silicon.com learned that 28% of smart phone owners downloaded more than 50 apps to their phones!

With so many to choose from, here are some of the most innovative and timesaving apps that can help you in your business:

Genius Scan+: This handy app is a lifesaver when it comes to documenting business expenses and receipts. It works like a mini-scanner and saves the image as a PDF or JPG format that can be saved and emailed.

Bump: Exchange contact information with other iPhone users by bumping your phones into one another. Your information is automatically loaded into their address book and vice versa, eliminating the need to type it in later.

Dragon Dictation: Up to five times faster than typing on a keyboard, Dragon Dictation is a speech recognition app that allows you to speak into your mobile phone to create text and email messages.

Mile Tracker:  Real estate professionals drive a lot! It’s easy to lose track of mileage but this app can help. It keeps track of odometer readings, parking expenses and more. You can email information to yourself or export reports to your computer, too.

Red Laser: Save money on business supplies or even on your personal holiday shopping with this powerful app. Just scan the barcode of the item you want to buy, and it will comparison shop for you, displaying where you can find it and for what price. It even contains links to the other sites so you can buy it online, even as you stand in the store!

Sound Hound: With all the time spent in the car, you’re sure to hear new music. Discover the artist and title of almost any song you hear with Sound Hound. Hold your phone to your speaker and it captures the song and displays all of the relevant information. Sometimes it even gives you the lyrics to the song.  If you like it, Sound Hound connects you to iTunes so you can buy it!  It may not be the most productive app, but it is a lot of fun!
