10 apps to optimize your smartphone

When you consider that just 10 short years ago we carried cell phones that doubled as weapons, it’s truly amazing what our phones can accomplish these days. Thanks to cell phone advancements, many of the tasks previously possible inside the office can now be performed anywhere.

Savvy businesses take advantage of these new capabilities and empower their workers with phones and apps to improve productivity. For example, I’ve heard how some of our customers created smartphone apps so their salespeople could check real-time stock levels, get directions to customer’s locations, and view up-to-the minute reports. In fact, in an effort to prove Android’s superiority over the iPhone, one of our customers created a web app with m-Power using his Droid smartphone.

Yet, despite all the smartphone advancements, certain tasks are still better suited for the desktop PC, such as typing long documents/emails. However, that might just change in the near future. I recently found an excellent list of smartphone apps on which serve to optimize your smartphone. A couple of the apps listed in there aim to simplify typing on your smartphone. All in all, it’s a great list for any business user with a smartphone.

How about you? Have you found any apps to optimize your smartphone? I’d love to hear about them in the comments.
