2TurboScan Creates Multipage PDFs in No Time
TurboScan is one of the most useful business apps available in the App Store. The program allows users to quickly take pictures of documents, receipts and other paper items and, if they wish, combine them into a single PDF or JPEG file. From there, users can quickly email the files to others. It’s a must-have app for any company that has gone paperless. The app costs $2.99.
3Keep Track of Employees With HotSchedules
HotSchedules is a surprisingly powerful app for companies that need to keep track of employee scheduling. The app allows employees to keep individual logs and has a technique for workers to see shifts and decide whether to pick them up or release them for someone else. Any company that operates an hour-based business will want this $2.99 app.
4Mail+ for Outlook Soups Up Microsoft’s Email Client
Mail+ for Outlook is arguably one of the best ways to get more out of Microsoft’s email platform. The app, which costs $5.99, lets users manage multiple accounts on both Exchange and Office 365, and do everything from manage folders to view and manage calendars, and more. It’s a nifty app that has gotten extremely positive reviews over the last year.
5Readdle’s Productivity Pack Makes You, Well, Productive
Customers looking for a simple, all-in-one bundle for productivity gains should check out the Readdle Productivity Pack. The app includes Scanner Pro—similar to TurboScan—as well as PDF Expert 5 to handle all kinds of PDF reading and editing, as well as a printing tool, Printer Pro. However, the app bundle is relatively expensive, coming in at $14.99.
6Get a Real File Manager With File Manager Pro
One of the biggest complaints about iOS is that it doesn’t come with a file manager. With File Manager Pro, however, all that changes. 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.
7Take Charge of PDFs With Adobe Reader
Adobe Reader is a useful application for those who want to view PDFs. The free application from Adobe works extremely well for those who want to perform simple functions, like read and annotate files, fill out forms, or sign PDFs. Users can also create PDFs in the app if they buy one of the in-app purchases.
8Secure Connections Through Free VPN
Free VPN from Onavo is one of the more popular applications in the Business section of the App Store. The app acts as a standard VPN, but includes the ability to block harmful sites and alert users that they’re sharing information over unsecured networks, and it adds an extra layer of security when surfing the Web. It’s a nice option when connecting to enterprise networks or just using your iPhone for standard, everyday functions.
9MobileIron Goes All Mobile@Work
MobileIron’s Mobile@Work application lets users configure devices for access to corporate WiFi and VPN networks and view documents stored on corporate services without fear of damaging security. In addition, the free app includes document annotation and a test feature that helps users determine network connection speeds. In other words, it’s a catch-all and it works quite well.
10Good for Enterprise Provides Secure Access to Business Documents
Many companies are now using Good to handle their internal communications, such as email. So it might be a smart idea to download the free Good for Enterprise app. The program provides full, secure access to email, calendars and contacts, and ensures that only secure connections are allowed on company intranets. The app works with standard Good, as well as Good-secured mobile apps.
11Protect All Kinds of Data With RSA’s SecurID Software Token
RSA’s SecurID Software Token was designed with the security-conscious IT professional in mind. Users download the free app first and then import an RSA software token. That token, plus the app, is used to essentially deliver two-factor authentication and improve security for your mobile applications. Best of all, it works without ever requiring a hardware token for the second factor of authentication.
