At the end of February, Fast Company posted an article about the 5 most useful smart phone applications to up the productivity of a busy business owner. We took another look at this list and we agree that these apps are only improving. We give 5 B’s to Quip (an organizational tool that allows you to digitally paperclip messages to documents), Pulse (recently acquired by and integrated into LinkedIn, you can turn your LinkedIn profile into a customize-able newsfeed on your mobile device), HipChat (very nifty drag-and-drop file sharing as well as real-time video chatting, chat groups and screen sharing), Any.do (an intuitive and award-winning application that all but plans your day for you. My favorite.*), and Evernote (more than an organizational tool, Evernote becomes a lifestyle). Read the Fast Company article HERE. What apps do you use to manage and stay on top of your day?
Follow up: Two weeks ago, we blogged about a study that suggests mobile devices are one of the most powerful tools in establishing an independent business. View the article HERE.
