iPhones have been among the most popular phones on the market for many years. Worthy of note is the slim-line form and their enormous variety of apps, along with the many iPhone cases available to change their look at the drop of the hat. The apps available make the iPhone popular among business users. Here are six of the most popular business apps for the iPhone.
When you use your phone for work, the ability to view documents on it is essential. Dropbox allows you to upload Word and Excel documents as well as photographs and PDFs from your computer. You can also save all the photographs that you take on your iPhone into a specified Dropbox folder. This is perfect if you want to be able to share your photos with colleagues or family, or if you just want to get them printed off. Most websites will recognise your Dropbox photos, whether you want to get them printed off to show your gran or to make some personalised phone cases for your business.
Skype can be invaluable, particularly for small businesses. If everyone in your business has Skype, you can use this free app for all of your phone calls, whether for speech alone or for video calls whenever you are connected to the internet. This can save your business a fortune on phone bills and if you speak to people abroad, it can be even more important.
