Top 10 iPhone Apps for Small Business in 2011

Top 10 iPhone Apps for Small Business in 2011

As the end of the year draws closer, it’s always a time we reflect on the best and worst of the year that was.

Given all the time we’ve spent in the app and mobile space given the recent launch of our new mobile gaming company, I thought I’d share my Top 10 list of iPhone apps that made me more organised and more productive.

So here goes:

1. Freshbooks Minibooks -
MiniBooks puts your invoicing and your books in the palm of your hand. Manage clients, send invoices, enter payments, check on rates from past jobs, run timers, and much more, all from the palm of your hand.


2. Hootsuite -
HootSuite is a FREE app that helps you spread messages, monitor conversations, and track results – all from your handset. Simple, elegant and powerful, HootSuite for iPhone allows you to send updates to Twitter, Facebook, and Foursquare from virtually anywhere.


3. To Do -
Todo® Task Manager for iPhone is a powerful set of tools that makes task management simple and fun. Use Todo on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, keep your tasks synchronized using Todo Online, a cloud sync service for tasks, or access your tasks on your desktop in iCal or Outlook by using Appigo Sync.


4. Google Docs -
With the mobile version of Google Docs you can access your document list, create, search, sort and filter your documents on the go. Edits you make on your mobile device will appear to other collaborators in seconds. You can also view your documents, PDFs, images and more through the mobile Google Docs Viewer and even print on the go
using Google Cloud Print.


5. Flipboard -
Inspired by the beauty of print and the simple action of flipping pages, Flipboard gives readers one place to enjoy the stories, photos, news and updates being shared across social networks. And now, re-designed for when and where people use the phone, Flipboard for iPhone takes this a step further with a fast, beautiful interface and Cover Stories, a brand new feature debuting with Flipboard for iPhone.


6. Team Viewer -
With the TeamViewer app for Apple iOS and for Android you are able to access remote computers from everywhere. It allows you to give spontaneous support as well as having permanent access to unattended computers.


7. Dropbox -
Bring your files with you when you’re on the go, Add files to your Favorites for fast, offline viewing, Easily upload photos and videos to Dropbox and Share freely with colleagues, friends and family.


8. Evernote -
Evernote for iPhone lets you create notes, snap photos, and record voice memos that you can then access any time from your iPhone, computer, or the web.


9. Skype
Skype on your iphone gives you access to all Skype’s great features on the go including Free Skype-to-Skype calling over 3G and WiFi, talk face-to-face or show what you’re seeing with your iPhone 4’s front- and rear-facing cameras.


10. Square
I haven’t had a chance to use this one yet, but I think it’ll really make waves next year. It allows you to accept credit card payments via your iPhone and at rates much lower than most merchant services – mobile or otherwise.

And that’s a wrap. Of course there’s been 100’s of great other apps launched this year, so why not tell us which ones you’ve been using in 2011.
