Business iPhone Apps Review

Why Do I Want an iPhone Business App?

iPhones are becoming more comfortable at work every day. The Business app category in the App Store on iTunes is flush with apps that range from currency converters to time and expense trackers to job finders. There are business news apps, motivational apps and for the eager-to-impress (aren’t we all?), business etiquette apps and even one to help you knot that perfect tie for a big presentation. Access your desktop computer from anywhere, scan documents, edit spreadsheets, read PDFs and create text documents with a touch of a finger. You can even download apps to handle credit card transactions.

iPhone Business Apps : What to Look For:

The selection of Business apps that are available to help you seize the occupational opportunities and bring home the bacon is varied and plentiful. As you’re considering the tools to add to your iPhone or iPod touch, keep these key elements in mind to help you choose the best ones for your career quest.

Features:
A good Business app will take advantage of the iPhone’s enormous capabilities from its voice recorder to the Maps, Contacts, Calendar and browser applications. Capitalizing on the strengths of the device, an excellent app should provide a full complement of features to enable you to be more productive and proactive in your job.

Interface
An iPhone app of any sort should employ an intuitive, polished interface. You shouldn’t have to guess at how the app ought to work. The developer’s help and support should be easy to find and informative.

Graphics
The industry-leading display of the iPhone is beautiful and the graphics used in the app should take advantage of the device’s capacity. Graphics should be polished, appropriate and have a specific, easily-identifiable use.

Stability
Any iPhone app you choose to use should be stable and run smoothly. A nice feature of some of the best iPhone apps is the low-memory message that is displayed when the operating memory is running low. It’s not a necessary addition but it’s a nice bit of information to have in case you’ve done a lot of work within an app that would be lost if it crashed.

Program Size
Most iPhone Business apps’ program sizes range between .3MB and 12MB. Memory management is important on an iPhone or iPod touch but most business apps won’t crimp your memory too badly.

Business apps for the iPhone are many and varied. They offer the business man or woman a diverse selection of tools to help them be productive and proactive in their career.
