It’s becoming increasingly easy to do everything on your smartphone. Have you ever imagined running your whole business from the palm of your hand though? All you need is something to call, email and access the internet from: and your smartphone can do all of those things. You’re probably even reading this off of yours right now… Hi!

Top 10 Apps For Business Owners
This app is a favourite for many. Evernote is basically a super organiser where you can take notes, store pictures, voice record: everything! It's great for meetings and is kind of like a bookmarker, which is also synced to your desktop. So next time you see something on your phone worth saving, just click the little elephant and it’ll be on your computer the next time you log in!
Store and share your files in the cloud. Dropbox is popular for a reason! It helps de-clutter all of your files and still leaves you with plenty of memory on your phone. You can store up to 2GB of data on the free version, but can also expand it by inviting friends to sign up or spend a little money for a massive 1000GB of storage.
Meetings on the go! Skype is an instant messaging service, but also is well known for its face-to-face video service too. Don’t be limited to your desktop, meet in a coffee shop or while you’re travelling. You can also share photos and can host group chats with up to 25 people for those of you who have big team meetings with your employees!
This one’s great for business owners who will be selling products. The guys behind iZettle want to help small businesses handle card transactions on the go. Their little device allows you to receive cash and card payments by syncing up with your mobile phone. You can create a library of products and prices for easy access and will receive information about which items are performing best. The app is free, once you get the iZettle card reader.
