More and more small business owners are running their businesses from smartphones. This trend is most likely going to increase since 74% of teenagers own a smartphone, and they treat it like a major communication hub. With all the exceptional mobile apps on the market today, it’s no surprise that what used to require a desktop computer can now be done with a device that fits in our pockets. The question is, which apps do you choose to help run your business?
I’ll be the first to admit that there are a lot of lame apps out there. As a small business owner, you don’t have time to go through experimenting with each one. You need a simplified guide that will give you a targeted list of apps that may be helpful for you.
This infographic called Running A Small Business From A Smartphone by Desk.com is one of the most comprehensive app infographics I’ve seen in a long time. It categorizes these apps for small business owners into six categories – financial management, file storage, document editing, communication, customer support and money transactions.
If you are interested in learning more about each of these, I recommend clicking over to the corresponding blog post called Running A Small Business From A Smartphone which has a detailed description of each one (the link to this article on Desk.com is above).

Last night when I was cleaning out a drawer, I found my ‘pager’ that I used about 15 years ago. Kids born today will never know what a pager is. If we can work from a smartphone now, just think how much more advanced that will be in 15 years from now. At that point, we’ll probably be able to use them to teleport to the office, or show up as a hologram. You gotta love technology, and it’s only going to continue to get better for small business owners.
