Here are the top 5 iPhone applications for small businesses.Ever since the iPhone came out it has been making waves in the world of mobile telephones. BlackBerries were once the mobile phone for business professionals, but now Apple’s iPhone is giving the Blackberry a run for its money.
A series of great applications for the iPhone are being made available all the time, from allowing you to update your Twitter to an on-screen spirit-level governed by GPS.
Of course it all depends on your type of business, and the on-screen spirit-level could be of more use to you than a currency converter, but here are the top 5 iPhone applications for small businesses.
Blogging – Wordpress for iPhone
There are two types of blogs out there. Personal blogs are most popular and tend to consist of a mix of diaries, opinions, research, pictures, videos and links.
The other kind of blog is business blogs, which have grown in popularity rapidly over the last ten years. Companies can use blogs as a corporate tool for communicating with customers and/or employees to share knowledge, or promote products or services.
Blogs are a great way for businesses to build traffic, connect with customers, and promote a brand. Increasingly no business website is complete without a business blog.
Blogging software tends to be quite easy to use, and popular blog hosts have been springing up all over the place, the latest and greatest being Wordpress. Now Wordpress have released a new piece of software specifically designed to make blogging from an iPhone possible.
JustAddMoney Expense Tracker
The Expense Tracker is a business application which allows several users to track money in real-time. Users can enter receipts, cheques, credit card purchases, and cash purchases, customise income and expense categories, transfer money between accounts, and generate reports.
The Expense Tracker is a multi-user application, meaning users can share financial data and get instant updates about other user’s tracking entries. It’s a great solution for businesses requiring constantly updated financial information.
This application is to help business professionals achieve their goals. The application allows users to enter goals, hold themselves accountable, track progress, set benchmarks, and separate business goals from personal ones.
Currency Converter is an iPhone business application which allows users to convert money between 23 currencies. The application will constantly update the conversion rates, allowing users to check exchange rates.
ACTPrinter is an innovative new application which hopes to save the world by cutting back on unnecessary print-outs. It allows users to “print” documents from a Mac or PC to an iPhone. It means users can take their documents with them without printing, folding, and then sheltering documents from the rain. Documents can be viewed easily and conveniently without sorting through a stack of paperwork.
There are loads of iPhone applications available, so if these applications don’t float your boat, why not see if one has been developed to meet your business needs?
