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.

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

  1. Zoho Notebook
    If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
  2. Evernote
    The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
  3. Net Notes
    If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
  4. i-Lighter
    You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
  5. Clipmarks
    For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
  6. UberNote
    If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
  7. iLeonardo
    iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
  8. Zotero
    Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
