Best Apps For Work

There are times when we need to complete tasks very quickly on the go for business purposes. Many apps have come onto the market which can help us within a click of a button, giving us fast solutions for everyday workloads. A lot of us are frantically dashing around, trying to get our busy schedules running smoothly without interruptions or sudden problems. There can be moments where you’ll think, “Oh I forgot..” or “I need to get this done, quickly!” and time starts to run out.

Fortunately, I have listed 6 useful apps that help you in many different ways when it comes to business.

Are you busy trying to find your way through London on your quest to get to work? If yes, this is the app for you. Citymapper is a straightforward travel app which tracks your location and gives you a list of ways you can get to your desired destination. Most of all, it can get you there safely when you are stuck and can’t think of how to get back. This app is only exclusive at the moment for travel within London, Paris, New York or Berlin.

The best feature about this is that it offers all possible forms of public transport, multiple routes, lists the price and also tells you approximately how long it will take you to get there. It can even offer you a “Rainsafe” route for when you are tackling the harsh London weathers on a rainy day. Genius.

Many people acknowledge amazon to be the online shop where you can purchase pretty much anything you want. Now with the app, you can purchase items on the go and add to your basket or select a one-click buy, which automatically processes orders of what you want.

For a business, it helps you can create a company account to order those important office supplies so you never have to deal with running out of paper or ink. After transactions, you can track and view all past orders which makes the app an easy referral for company expenses.

Bitly is a URL shortening service founded in 2008. It is one of those apps that is so easy to get used to. Creating ‘bitlinks’ will become second nature so much that you’ll probably start to automatically open this app on your phone or your browser.

Instead of bookmarking hundreds of links onto your toolbar in your internet browser, this website now available as an app allows you to shorten links and save them into categories online. Linking through Twitter, Facebook or email, you can share your relevant business links to fellow colleagues.

You are also able to manage company accounts and even schedule posts. After this, you receive stats, telling you how many people have clicked on your shortened link. Everything is all in one place and doesn’t jam up your device’s speed. Plus, the little pufferfish mascot is just delightful!

Camscanner pretty much does what it says in the name. The app turns photos into what look like scanned documents. After capturing your chosen document, you can also edit it with notes along with different settings such as marker pen, brush pen, ballpoint or even the classic quill. This will then import your document into a PDF, ready for sharing.

This could work for anyone in a meeting who has notes they want to share or collecting copies of business receipts without having to scramble through your bag.

Microsoft’s OneNote app allows you to create notes and lists which you can edit to your heart’s content. These will then be available to view on any other device you have which has OneNote installed.
Any thought, reminder or simple to-do list can be saved and organised, making it easier for you to be productive in day-to-day tasks.

It’s never been so easy to turn your tablet or phone into your smaller version of your PC or Mac. Now we can view documents en-route to meetings, or we can now link them to our WiFi and print if we forget our other devices.

Dropbox quickly became the Holy Grail for sharing business documents, It’s easy to use and accessible across many devices, making it your go-to app for work. You can upload files, create folders and share them with anyone or no one; it’s entirely up to you. After the desktop download, you can access Dropbox via your documents, appearing below “downloads” which allows you to drag and drop documents which will update online too.

You can view documents on these too, making it suitable for when you are on the go. You can also add people to your folder so they can view certain files. Simple and brilliant. This app has indeed become the easiest way of sharing files and a back-up for important documents.

I have to say, having apps on-the-go seems to have helped improve productivity, making us multitask different devices all at once. Whether you’re a graphic designer or accountant, there will be an app out there perfect for the other, more filtered tasks you have to complete.
