The app includes the ability to engage in real-time messaging, file sharing, and both group and one-to-one conversations. Plus, it's free.
 

With the holidays behind us and, according to the latest data, companies investing heavily in mobile devices, it's perhaps no surprise that technology vendors are seeing an uptick in the way professionals are using their mobile devices. From Samsung to Apple to Google, just about every company is now gunning for the enterprise, realizing that it could be a huge market for their businesses.

Having reached new sales records, the device—and its bigger brother, the iPhone 6 Plus—is something that today's customers are finding to be a solid choice for both consumer and enterprise use. To get real value out of the handset, however, those using the phone for business use will need to download some apps from Apple's App Store. Realizing that, the following slides highlight programs available in the App Store that make the business experience of using the iPhone 6 all the more appealing.
