The app allows users to download and organize files on the iPhone without any fear of losing items. The app looks somewhat similar to both Finder and Windows Explorer, and it supports embedded folders. It's a great app that justifies its $4.99 price tag.

It's a sure thing that a lot of people are acquiring iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones as holiday gifts this season. Or they already purchased the devices soon after Apple shipped them in September. Many of these new iPhone owners are business users who are looking for applications to help them be more productive whether they are in the office or on the road. Apple's latest smartphones include a new design, bigger screen sizes and the ability to make mobile payments through a near-field communications chip built into the device. While the iPhone may come with nifty features and apps built in courtesy of Apple, the real value comes through third-party apps available in Apple's App Store, including some outstanding enterprise-ready apps that new iPhone owners should know about. This eWEEK slide show highlights some of the better enterprise-ready apps available in the App Store. Five of the following apps are available at modest prices, while the other five are free. In either case, customers will find solid mobile apps designed to enhance their productivity and their security.
