Mobile applications (or "apps" for short) can make day-to-day interaction easier and more efficient — particularly in business.

With more than a million smartphone apps out there, it can be hard to find the ones truly worth using, so we've compiled a list of our 10 favorite business apps. As a bonus, most of the apps we like the best are free!




Evernote lets you take notes and sync files across devices. While it's not the only app of this kind, it's our favorite, because Evernote acts as a one-stop shop. We love how easy it is to make a checklist of things to do for a particular project, and the ability to make comments on saved files, too. 


Hootsuite is a social media management system that can be used to collaboratively execute campaigns across multiple social networks from one secure, web-based (or app-based) dashboard. Hootsuite not only helps you stay on track with your social media management – the dashboard also offers a robust analytics report module.  


Buffer is also a social media management tool. The difference is that while Hootsuite focuses its features on the ability to access a variety of accounts with in-depth metrics and a pre-schedule feature, Buffer makes it incredibly easy to schedule them so that they drip out at the perfect time for the specific network. 

LinkedIn Connected 

LinkedIn Connected is a fast, easy and smarter way to strengthen your professional relationships. Connected gives you relevant updates about people you know, alerts you when to reach out, provides notifications on job changes, work anniversaries and more. It allows you to invest in your connections for opportunities in the future. 


Sign-n-Send makes it easier to do business on the road. Developers use a cutting-edge app technology that makes it simple to sign legal documents with your finger on an iOS device and instantly send via email. Not only can you sign and modify a PDF on the go, you can also access it from desktop programs such as Mail and Safari.
