Smartphone apps to use for a small business on the go!

It's not uncommon these days to work on documents or share files from your smartphone, with more businessmen and women choosing to use their portable devices to work on the go.

Social media managers can update company blogs at the touch of the button, before they even reach their office desk!

The efficiency and convenience of smartphone devices are what make them attractive to users, with the relative apps helping to cut down the time to get the task done.

A Desk.com infographic has found that a third of American small business owners use smartphones to manage their companies, conducting tasks such as customer relationship management and banking.

The infographic, Running a small business from a smartphone, has noted some of the best smartphone apps that small business owners may benefit from.

Document editing app: Evernote

Evernote is handy app that makes it easy to "remember things big and small from your everyday life" using your phone, tablet, computer and the web.

Evernote Business was only just made available in Australia in early February, with the app being able to sync to the cloud, allowing your business to share almost anything between any number of devices and users.

Desk.com notes that all of your company's saved web pages, documents and share content can be "organised into folders as needed" – eliminating the problem of messy and lost paperwork.

Evernote is available for Android, iPhone, Windows phones and BlackBerrys.

Communication: Skype

Skype is a staple software for many businesses around the world, allowing workers to connect over video conferencing when a highly-detailed, complicated email just won't do.

Businesses are now able to take advantage of this service over their smartphones, allowing users to send and receive video or voice calls and chat through an instant messaging feature.

Desk.com adds that many of Skype's services are free but there are also subscription and Pay As You Go plans available.

Skype is available for Android, iPhone, Blackberry, Nokia Symbian and a number of other devices.
