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.
Skype App is a must have on your smart phone. The app is free for iPhones and Android phones. Blackberry’s charge you $29.99 for a program called “IM Plus Talk,” which works with Skype. Skype allows people to make phone calls over the internet for free, no matter the distance. The Skype app works the same as it does on your computer with the added flexibility of a mobile phone. This way no matter where you are, you can reach the people you need. A special feature iPhone 4 offers with Skype is video conferencing. Now you can be a part of that meeting across the country from the comfort of your home or office.
