Running from meeting to meeting is not unusual when you are running a business. As such, staying connected and on-track can be somewhat of a challenge. Since businesses are becoming more and more dependent on technology, it's important to know what tools are out there for you to take advantage of. Here are some great apps that can be useful for all types of businesses:
Dropbox – free (+ paid extras), all platforms
This app allows you to upload and share photos, videos, and documents across multiple devices. Instead of worrying about those important files you forgot to e-mail yourself, why not use Dropbox to have access to them on the go. It can also act as a Cloud service, allowing you to retrieve lost files even when storage devices have been damaged.
Skype – free (+ paid extras), all platforms
The mobile version of the app lets you make business calls and join existing conversations even when you are not in the office. Skype is a great way to stay connected with clients and colleagues on the go. There is even an Outlook plugin that allows you to make calls straight from your inbox.
Evernote – free (+ paid extras), all platforms
Evernote allows you to clip things you find online, track and delegate tasks, create plans and share your ideas with colleagues. With automatic syncing between devices, you will never lose track of your projects. The app also has a paid business version which comes with unlimited cloud storage and further administrative tools. 
Wunderlist – free (+ paid extras), all platforms
As the name might suggest, this app allows you to create numerous to-do-lists and folders. What's great about it is that not only do you get reminders on your phone, but you can also share your lists with colleagues. This is incredibly useful for co-ordinating projects and the paid business version of the app allows you delegate different task to different group members.
Receipt Catcher – £0.99, iOS and Android
If you've ever lost a work-related receipt, you'll know what a bother logging expenses can be. This app lets you take photos of your receipts, create digital copies, tag and divide them into folders, and produce personalised expenses reports. Better yet, your information is stored in the Cloud and can be accessed by your colleagues from other devices.
