Those who work awkward shift patterns can use a specially designed calendar app to keep on top of the days and weeks ahead or just stay organised with a to do list and time management app. If you own a business that can be dependant on the weather, knowing when the rain is coming your way can be important or for estate agents could why not offer up the exact crime information for a street to a client?
Keep up to date with local, national or your industry’s news as you never know when a crisis or PR opportunity will break, and plan PR hooks in advance by checking a national commemorative day and week calendars. Businesses who use social networks can time content in advance or post on the move with an app that links your different accounts. If you have a high megapixel camera on your phone, apps that alter the style or colour might provide you with a different look for your marketing materials or website. Website’s are integral to many businesses so if you don’t employ an SEO agency, keep abreast of your own, or a competitors rankings wherever you are, or check Page Ranks and analyse the backlinks of a competitors website.
Here are just a few ideas of how your professional life could be made easier by smartphone apps. I suggest you start with a list of jobs that you feel you are restricted to the office by and get searching the app markets – I’m sure you will be surprised by what is available and you’ll wonder what you ever did without those clever little apps.
