That smartphone that you have in your pocket isn’t just for playing games and checking your social media accounts. You can also use it for your entrepreneurial endeavors. In fact, there are a number of apps that any entrepreneur’s iPhone or Android should not be without. Let’s take a look, shall we?
You’ve got to keep yourself organized! That’s what makes Evernote such an exceptional app. It makes it incredibly easy to keep all of your notes in one place, including the ones that you write by hand (just snap a photo of them with the phone’s camera). You can also use Evernote to make and track checklists and to-do lists, and you can use it share documents with others.
If Evernote is too “note-taking-centric” for your document needs, then Dropbox might be just what you’re looking for. It functions much the same way, but is better suited for documents of all styles, from spreadsheets to videos. With it, you can sync to contents of your hard drive to the cloud, thereby gaining access to your documents from all of your devices at any time and from anywhere.
Keeping track of all of your invoices, estimates and quotes can be incredibly difficult. Thankfully, this handy little app can make things quite easy. By just filling out a few fields, you can quickly put together invoices for your customers and clients, printing them wirelessly with the tap of a finger.
Do you need your finger on the pulse of your web presence at all times? Then this may be the app for you. It allows you to sync a myriad of analytics tools into one convenient portal. With this in your pocket, keeping a constant eye on the state of your web presence has never been easier.
Does anyone carry cash anymore? If you’re going to be out selling, then this app is a virtual must. You get a small square device that plugs into the headphone jack of any mobile device, which the app then uses to read and process payments made with credit cards. With this in your pocket, you’ll be able to close a sale wherever you happen to be.
