8 Amazing Smartphone Applications Best Suited for Businessmen

8 Amazing Smartphone Applications Best Suited for Businessmen

It is quite pleasing to know that Apple and Android application stores take care of people from all walks of life. Some applications are developed plainly for passing time and others for some really productive purposes. It’s not wrong to say that searching through these thousands of applications becomes quite a challenge when you are trying to pick one that will stay on your phone for a long time. As you keep trying various applications, you realize that many of them are not developed properly or they are often missing the exact options that you are looking for in the app.

If you look into the productive applications, you will find many that are suited for businessmen and executives. They can help you not only with your day to day work at the office, but many other tasks that can speed up your work. It has always been a wish for smartphone users to be able to check an application before installing it on their phones. The common way of knowing how good applications are is to download them and check them one by one. To help you know some great applications for business use, here is a list of some good ones:

1. File Expert – File Manager

This application tops the list because it is the most comprehensive and complete application you will find on any application store for managing your files. Not only does it allow you to access your files across all the storage devices out there, such as USB flash drives, hard drives, mobile storage etc. but it also sports the most useful features you will need while browsing the files. It even has its own music player to play your audio files within the application. With File Expert – File Manager, You can edit text files, select batches, shred files, rename batches and access files from most commonly used cloud services etc. all in one place.

2. Memento Database

If you are running a business where you have to maintain a database, this application is going to be a treasure for you. It might seem like a small database from its size but it’s the most comprehensive database you can get in the shape of a mobile application. It allows you to store your contacts on forms whose fields can be completely customized by you. You can then access the stored contacts in an easy-to-view excel sheet format. From there, you can even call the contacts directly as the contacts on the table can be tapped with your finger.

3. Polaris Office + PDF

If you have a lot of MS Office files that you work on, this is going to be the best application. It also lets you access and save your files in the cloud, but unfortunately, the functionality is much more inferior to what is offered by File Expert – File Manager. This application is best for people who have to work on MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint files every now and then. It also supports the limited editing of PDF files. You may also convert files in various formats to PDF format right on your smartphone using this application.

4. LinkedIn

LinkedIn is a social network but this particular network is meant only for professionals. This is not a place where you would see teenage boys and girls sharing their feelings about a bad day at school or their grudge against some new pop artist. This is a place where professionals create attractive profiles and make networks with other professionals. You can benefit from LinkedIn in unlimited ways. You can have a network of people who can help you with a job, or find connections that might be interested in starting a business with you.

5. Google Drive

Google Drive is mainly a cloud service from Google. You can have this service from many other companies as well. What makes Google Drive so attractive is the fact that most people in the world are using Android phones. If you are an Android user then Google drive is the best bet for you in terms of cloud service. It comes packaged with Google Sheets, Docs and Slides. In short, you have access to more like a complete MS Office in the cloud but this one comes from Google and is more optimized for Android users.

6. Evernote

It is hard to describe what Evernote is meant for and what it does. This application has such a huge list of things it does that you could write a book on it. Mainly it is meant for you to take notes, but that’s like measuring the depth of the sea at the shore. You can take notes by writing them manually. You can take notes by taking screenshots or capturing only certain parts of an article. In short, you can take notes in any format you can think of e.g. text, audio, video etc. You can even attach your photos and MS documents with it.

7. LastPass

The first thing most people have to do when they take up their seats at their workplaces in the morning is to log into many different accounts. A businessman has to log into even more accounts. LastPass is an application meant for storing your passwords in one place. It even acts as a password generator so if you are creating your profiles on various social networking websites for marketing purposes, it is going to help you big time. It even lets you autofill your passwords on the websites you like. In short, it saves you a lot of time to do other important things.

8. RescueTime

Do you think you spend too much time socializing and leave no time for more important stuff? This application will help you save time and use it for more important things. It lets you know which applications you have used for how long. By giving you this breakdown it gives you a clear idea of where you are spending your time. Pay for it, and you will gain access to more amazing features. It can remind you that you are spending too much time on a certain application. Finally, it has the ability to block certain websites you otherwise would get lost on.

5 Killer Online Journal Tools That Make Journaling Easier and More Fun

5 Killer Online Journal Tools That Make Journaling Easier and More Fun

Journaling is one of the most useful personal development tools around. Not only does it help us process emotions and experiences, work through internal conflicts and improve our self-awareness, it also provides us with a way to keep a day-to-day record of our lives. Traditionally an activity limited to pen and paper, the expansion of consumer technology has enabled journaling to go digital.

Saving your journaling entries online enables you to access them from anywhere, without having to carry a notebook and pen around, and provides you with digital features, like tagging and search functions.

Here are a list of five online journaling tools you can use to bring your practice into the modern age:

1. 750words

750 words

    750words is a free online journaling tool created by Buster Benson. The site is based on the idea of “Morning Pages”; a journaling tool Julia Cameron suggests in her creativity course The Artist’s Way. Cameron advises aspiring creatives to start each morning with three pages of stream-of-consciousness writing to clear away the mental clutter, leaving you with a clearer mind to face the day.

    750 words is the three-page digital equivalent (assuming the average person writes 250 words per page) and lets you store all your journaling online. Each morning, you’ll receive a prompt asking you to write your 750 words, and the site keeps track of various statistics associated with your entries. The site uses a Regressive Imagery Dictionary to calculate the emotional content from your posts and provides feedback on features like your mood, and most commonly used words.

    750 words is simple to set up and is ideal for anyone who finds it challenging to maintain a consistent journaling practice. The site uses a number of incentives to motivate users, including animal badges awarded to journalers who complete a certain number of days in a row, leader boards, and opt-in monthly challenges.

    2. Ohlife

    ohlife

      Ohlife is designed to make online journaling as easy as possible. Once you’ve signed up for your free account, the website will send you an email each day asking “How did your day go?” Simply reply to the email with as much or as little detail as you like, and your response will be stored on your account, ready to view next time you log in.

      Ohlife’s appeal lies in its simplicity: no stats, no social sharing, no complicated organisational systems—the site is designed to provide you with a private, online space. Simply respond to the email each day (or skip the days you’re busy) and Ohlife will do the rest.

      3. Oneword

      oneword

        OneWord is a fun online tool that provides you with a single word as a prompt and gives you sixty seconds to write about it. The concept’s aim is to help writers learn how to flow, and the prompts range from the everyday mundane to the profound.

        Advertising

        Oneword is not a private journaling tool: if you sign up, your answers will be published on the site’s daily blog, which contains a stream of users’ answers, and might be used by Oneword in the future. If you’d rather keep your answers to yourself, you can still use the tool for fun without giving out any personal details.

        4. Penzu

          Penzu is a journaling tool that allows you to store your journaling notes online. The service also offers mobile apps for iOS, Android and Blackberry, so you can journal on the go and save your notes to your account. The basic service is free, however you can upgrade to Penzu Pro and get access to additional features, including military-grade encryption and the ability to save and sync data through your mobile, for $19 per year.

          With either version of Penzu, you can insert pictures, and add tags and comments to entries, as well as search for older entries. You can set your posts to be private and viewable by you only, or share them with others.

          5. Evernote

          Evernote isn’t a purpose-built journaling tool, however its features make it perfect for keeping your journaling notes in one safe place. With the ability to keep separate “notebooks”, tag your entries, include pictures, audio and web clipping, Evernote will appeal to journalers who want to include more formats than just text in their entries.

          Available online within a web browser, and as a stand-alone desktop app, the service also comes with a series of mobile apps covering almost every device available. These allow you to make notes on the go and sync between the mobile and browser versions of the app.

          For additional features, including text recognition and the ability to collaborate on Notebooks, you can upgrade to Evernote’s premium service, which costs $5 per month.
