Checking your phone or email is an easy time-killer while waiting for a client lunch or conference call to start.
But what if your No. 1 gadget could save you time at work?
“Various apps can be used to handle business activities that career women encounter,” says Prita Uppal, CEO of Hooked Media Group.
Her top productivity apps help her maintain client accounts, create business invoices, shop faster, manage her money and more.
Need access to your work computer when you’re out of the office? The RDM+ app syncs to your remote desktop so you’re always connected.
“AccountEdge lets you create [finance] quotes, orders as well as invoices,” explains Uppal.
Plus, the Quickbooks app lets you easily look up accounts receivable, check customer lists, and keep records of expenses on the road.
The best news? Both apps are free.
For smarter shopping, Our Groceries and Froogle let you compare prices, scan barcodes electronically, read reviews and search products by photo, Uppal says.
Voice apps (Speaktoit and Vlingo are her favorites) let you send text messages and get directions while walking or driving, so you can focus without distraction.
That’s what we call “mobile multi-tasking.”
