Apps! Everyone has them and everyone talks about them. They appeared on the market not so long ago and what started off as a geeky trend is now a piece of technology we all take for granted. Even kids use apps as if they were the most natural thing in the world. Maybe they are, and as weird as it might sound, nowadays some people couldn't even imagine a life without them. Given the fast pace at which our world grows and develops today, it is only natural that apps have become a part of our life.


In fact, there is an app for everything. They do make our daily life easier, indeed: You can book flights, order food, books, clothes (anything really), you can send text messages for free, chat with your friends, share pictures and get a wealth of more or less useful information within seconds. All this is (partly) possible thanks to small little icons on your fancy shiny touch screen. They literally open up a new world for you. So if you are using apps in your private life already, why don't you use them for business purposes, too? The list of apps for your business is endless. So let's just have a look at 5 little useful apps that can make your (professional) life a whole lot easier:

The Top 5 Apps For Your Business - Image 1
  1. Bento

Let's be honest: being organised is the most important thing when running a business (and if you want to succeed with anything in life). However, sometimes it can be a real challenge. One of the main struggles for business owners, but also employees and anyone trying to be successful nowadays, is keeping an overview of things to do and getting organised on a day to day basis. Well structured organisation might be a hassle but it will take you a long way and the beautiful thing is that every little effort pays off. If you invest some time in getting organised it will save you a lot of time in the long run.


There are a million ways to become organised but you have to find your unique one: In other words, a system that works for you personally. Unfortunately there is no recipe for everyone, at the end of the day it all comes down to trial and error. The good news is that Bento really can help you if you are struggling with your (business) organisation. It is simple, straightforward and $ 4.99 really isnât a big investment. This app is extremely flexible and adapts well to all individual needs of you businesses.


The layout is very intuitive and the design is simple but beautiful. It can be connected to your iCal tasks (Mac owners know what it is all about), you can chose from many different themes and even high quality voice recording is now possible. Check it out and never struggle with basic organisation again.

  1. Go to my PC

We all know the hassles of remote working. Remote access to your work computer can be a problem, but the days where we spend all of our working time in the office are gone for good. We need to move and travel, but at the same time we need constant access to our computers. All the time and everywhere! Fortunately there is this new app, which really has the potential to make our working life much easier.


Thanks to Go to my PC you can now control your computer even if you are away from your workplace. Unlike many other remote solutions it is really easy to set up, but be aware that this app is a bit slow and many users complain about the lack of multitasking options.

  1. Dragon Dictation

Our working environment has changed a lot. Luckily, the angry boss dictating letters to a scared secretary is a picture of the past. While angry bosses still exist this app now plays the role of the secretary. Voice transcription programmes have been around for a while now, but unlike other technical solutions, this app offers a very accurate transcription. Messages can also easily be shared via e-mail, Facebook or Twitter. It is completely free and very efficient. The only downside we could spot is that you need an internet connection, but who isn't connected to the internet nowadays?

  1. eFax

Thanks to this little app you can now send and receive faxes from your tablet. With the free version you can receive faxes if you also want to send them you can easily update to pro version. It offers more flexibility and you can save paper and do something for the environment at the same time.

  1. Alert me Energy Map

Energy efficient products are a big topic for businesses. Saving energy pays off on so many levels. First of all you do something for the environment which will definitely help your business to get a good reputation. After all, every business aims to 'go green' nowadays. Another big advantage is that you can save a lot of money if you simply stop wasting energy. Before you can become more eco-friendly as a business you need to know where you go wrong, because that's the best way to improve. This app will allow you to see how good (or bad) your business is when it comes to energy efficiency, something all businesses are aiming for nowadays.


You can see how much energy you use and compare it to your neighborhood statistics. The iPhone app gives you average consumption data of 408 UK boroughs, you will see how your competitors are using or wasting energy and you can compare your own usage easily. After all, a bit of friendly competition won't do any harm.
