There are plenty of apps out there that can make your life easier, but what about business apps? These days, it seems like every company has its own version of Slack or Evernote.
But for the most part, these tools aren’t designed with the needs of small businesses in mind. Whether you’re looking for something simple or advanced—something with a free trial or paid subscription—here are 11 must-have business apps for getting more out of your work:
Evernote is a great app for taking notes and organizing information. It’s available on most platforms, including iOS and Android, so you can use it on your phone or tablet.
You can use Evernote for work, school projects, or personal projects. You’ll find that the app makes it easy to create lists of tasks or ideas as well as organize research by creating folders in which you add documents related to your topic of interest.
MindMeister is a mind-mapping tool that makes it easy to create, share and organize your thoughts in a collaborative environment. You can use the app for free or purchase an annual subscription that includes all features available in the free version.
MindMeister has three main features: mind maps for brainstorming, teams, and individuals; keynotes for presentations; and templates for projects such as business plan writing or website content creation.
This means users can use their minds intuitively by simply drawing connections between ideas without having to type anything into their computer or mobile device first!
Skitch is a screenshot app that allows you to annotate screenshots. Whether you’re in the middle of preparing an important presentation or simply want to share something with colleagues and friends, Skitch has got you covered.
The best part is that this app can be used for both collaboration and presentations; if there are any other apps out there that will allow you to annotate images while simultaneously collaborating on a project together with others, I haven’t heard about them yet!
CamScanner is a great app for scanning documents on your phone. You can send the scans to cloud storage, or email them as attachments. It works with a scanner and can even be used with a document camera, so it’s an all-in-one solution for scanning any kind of paper that you need to scan.
Slack is a great app for teams to collaborate. It allows you to communicate with colleagues and clients, share files, manage tasks, and collaborate on projects. Slack integrates with many other services so that you can use it for much more than just communication.
ExpressVPN is the best VPN service for all of these purposes, and it’s easy to set up and use. It has a great user interface, fast speeds and excellent customer service.
If you’re looking for security, privacy or unblocking websites (or all three), then ExpressVPN is your best choice. For instance, as an entertainment blog owner you need some content from CraveTV, but hard luck! It is only restricted to Canada, what if you are in the USA? With ExpressVPN’s fastest servers you can easily bypass these restrictions and Crave TV in USA without any hassle.
Tripit is a travel organizer that helps you plan, manage and track your trips. You can use it to keep track of flight bookings, hotel reservations, and car rentals; find the best deals on flights and hotels; share accommodation information with family members or friends who may be traveling with you.
Tripit will also help you find out where in the world is the cheapest place for buying souvenirs so that when it comes time for bedazzled towels or sunblock at every other souvenir shop around town (the ones who don’t carry them), there won’t be any surprises!
Toggl is a time-tracking app that you can use for personal and business use. It’s free, but there are paid plans available if you need more functionality or storage space.
Toggl is available on iOS and Android devices, so it will work with whatever device you have at hand.
SalesforceIQ is a cloud-based sales CRM that helps you understand your pipeline and prioritize leads, manage your pipeline and customers, build relationships with your customers, and identify trends in your business. It also provides tools for sales managers to collaborate on activities across multiple teams.
SalesforceIQ comes packed with features that make it easy to use—and even easier to get started!
RescueTime is software that helps you understand where you spend your time, how much time you spend on specific tasks and websites, and which apps are preventing you from achieving your goals. You can set goals for yourself and track progress toward those goals.
It’s best used as an add-on to another productivity tool like Asana or Trello because it makes it easy to see which activities are taking up most of your day (as well as how much time they take).
11. JungleMail for Office 365/SharePoint
JungleMail is a Gmail plugin that helps you manage your email inbox and stay organized. With JungleMail, you can sort emails by importance, date, sender, etc. It can be integrated with Microsoft Outlook or used independently from it.
At the end of the day, being more productive is a matter of having the right tools for the job. We hope this post has helped you find some new apps to use in your daily workflow.
