Make the most of your Smartphone using these Apps to increase Business productivity.



Hey guys, welcome to Global Tech Gears. In my previous post, I wrote about certain apps that will be more helpful to us than just the normal chatting and browser apps we install on our smartphones. if you didn't see that please just click the following link to read about it and share your thoughts. https://www.ttconnectingspot.com/post/these-apps-will-help-you-not-to-under-use-your-smartphone-in-2020
Today I will be focusing particularly on business apps we can make use of on our smartphone. The purpose of this is to enhance productivity even in a relaxed and comfortable mode, No wonder nowadays businesses are providing smartphones for their employees; it is not just an employee benefit but because they understand the essence of having some of these apps on the phone and its not very professional if you ask me that employees should use their personal phones to run company operations since the phones have to be monitored to ensure employees use them in-line with company norms. Enough with the literature, I am going to share with you good business apps you can install on your phone. some are very great for teamwork, schedules, appointments, planning, etc. Be sure to read till the end and figure out which works best for you or your team or the business as a whole. I have used a few of these and it's perfect. Some are available on google play while others you can download at the developer's website, I will be sure to include links for more information including pricing for some.

Unfortunately, the app requires a paid office 365 commercial subscription but good tho there is a free or trial subscription of Microsoft teams. Learn more at www.office.com/teams.

With their big screens, these applications will be so flexible on them. find a tablet that best suits your needs. here's quite a good number of tablet computers on sale 

This mobile app easily helps you organize your work, collaborate with your team and manage projects. It was voted the best productivity app winner at 2019 webby awards. but that's not the reason for making it on my list. the app helps you manage for success by knowing where things stand at a glance, tracking of time and progress, visually analyze your data with multiple views, filter to display only the information you need and see who's working on what. It's very best for project management. prioritize with custom notifications, automate repetitive work and access your work anywhere and anytime. Fortunately, it is so easy to get started, simply pick a pre-made template, edit any section, add every kind of stuff that needs to get done and organize it by drag and drop. if this is an ideal app for you download it on play store or learn more at www.monday.com

7. Microsoft Powerpoint
Powerpoint is one of the applications under Microsoft office suite and though I really didn't want to add it here because its quite popular and everyone probably knows what it does and how to use it at least for the desktop version, I still felt it necessary it appears here since most people don't or may not know a few tweaks; you can actually sync the app to one drive such that what you've started on your smartphone, you can complete in on an actual desktop. you can make new presentations or work on existing ones and present with confidence controlling the slideshow from your mobile. In a subsequent post, I will show you exactly how to do that. A beautifully crafted presentation is always the winner, it wows your audience and keeps them, listeners. Powerpoint makes it easy for you to collaborate with others. with one click sharing, quickly invite others to edit, view or provide feedback on your slides. Easily manage permissions and see who's working in your presentation. Impressive right? now if you are interested in looking for an app that has all the office applications the download OfficeSuite but it's not really free as depicted on play store, most of its features require a premium subscription. but then if budget is not your issue then go for it.
