Each day this week, we will be examining a smart phone app that can help you run your business more effectively.
Smart phones are becoming more vital in the work place, and for some, it can revolutionize how they do their job. In a recent Pew Internet Project report, they found that “82% of adults in America use their mobile handsets on a daily basis.” In total there are 86 million mobile internet users as of 2010, which is up 25% from 2009, according to a report done by CNet. This illustrates just how dependent we are on our phones and how important it is to have the right tools to help. Because people are using their phones to conduct business on a daily basis; we want to highlight some of the apps that can be the most helpful.
The first app we will be highlighting is Dragon Dictation. This app is available for free on iPhones and Blackberrys. It is also available for Droid phone users under the name “Flex T9” for $4.99. Dragon Dictation is an app that records your voice and then turns it into print. Once you have finished dictating, you can have it sent as a text message, email, or have it posted on Facebook or Twitter. I find that it is pretty accurate dictation of your words, and has helped me write many blog posts while driving on long trips. What is great about this app is that it allows you to work on the road and not have to try and types a long email with those tiny little keypads on your phone.
