Business Applications for Windows Phone

CoPilot GPS

Paired with the right app, your smartphone can perform as well as a dedicated GPS device. Co-Pilot GPS is definitely the right app. It lets you download maps to help you get where you’re going even when you don’t have a cellular signal. It features millions of features, including gas stations, restaurants, and rest stops; alternate route choices; walking routes; and door-to-door route planning. You also get a free trial of Copilot's voice-guided navigation and Active Traffic features. If you like the latter two, you can purchase them for a fee.


Some folks require a calendar based task scheduler just to keep up. Due, on the other hand, was designed for those with fewer strictures. For instance, due only schedules tasks for Today, Tomorrow, and Someday. As you’d expect, items on the Tomorrow list automatically move to the Today list the next day. You can also manually move items between lists as you see fit. Each item also displays how long ago it was added, so you can see how long you’ve been putting off that certain something. The Start screen tile also displays today’s tasks as a reminder.

Splashtop 2

Splashtop in this latest version you’ll find a much more powerful remote desktop access app. Connected via Wi-Fi, you can control and view items on your desktop right from your Windows Phone. With the optional Anywhere Access Pack (fee required), you can do the same over a 3G/4G cellular network connection. Supported application types include PC or Mac apps, games, audio and video files at up to 30 frames per second, photos, and more. Supported apps include PowerPoint, Keynote, Word, Excel, Outlook, Quicken, browsers.

Business Applications for iOS

Last Time

With a traditional task scheduler, appointments and important events disappear when they’re marked complete or they expire. But with Last Time, you record recurring events to keep track of the last time you did something: visited the dentist, changed the cabin air filter on your car, cleaned the drier vent, or changed the batteries in your smoke alarms. This app features a List mode and a Timeline mode. In the former, you can see items organized into categories, such as Home, Recreation, Car, Health, and Entertainment. The latter mode displays items in chronological order.

Maplets Apps for iOS

Maplets is an offline mapping application that lets you download from a library of more than 10,000 detailed maps that will supplement your other mapping applications, such as Google Maps or Apple Maps. There are more than 1,000 national parks maps, including Yosemite, Yellowstone, Grand Canyon; state parks in every state; local city parks; metro and transit maps, including New York City Subway, the London Tube, the Paris Metro, Washington Metro, and more. The app also provides access to a vast collection of bike trail maps and maps for parks that allow RVs.

Official Hotkeys

If you spend a significant amount of time using Microsoft’s Office products, then check out SeHeon Park’s Official Hotkey- Microsoft Version. This utility displays a list of the hotkey shortcuts available for Microsoft Office applications. Just tap the application you want to explore from the main menu, and you’ll see a list of the hotkeys available for it. This app has the potential to streamline your work flows and dramatically improve your Microsoft Office proficiency.

Business Apps for BlackBerry


When flying, you really can’t overstate the importance of the arrivals and departures board. It’s where you find the gate and it’s what helps make sure you get there on time. Do you have time for a restroom break and coffee, or should you start running now? The problem is, though, the arrivals and departures boards are located in the terminals, sometimes at odd intervals. With Flight- Stats, you can check gates, departure times, airport maps, nearby concessions and amenities, and the status of any flight right from your BlackBerry. It’s like having an airport information desk in your pocket.

IM+ Pro

There are dozens of instant messaging services available. Sadly, to keep in touch with your friends, you may find yourself juggling multiple applications and logins just to stay visible to all your Phone numbers. With IM+ Pro, you can use a single app to keep up with your Skype, MSN Messenger, AIM, ICQ, Google Talk, Facebook, and Yahoo! Messaging applications, and more. The app also lets you use a master password to log in to all services at once. You can send text messages and photos, and participate in group chats. You can also customize your experience with sounds and emoticons.

Smart Utilities

Your smartphone is a lot more than just a phone, but despite its many capabilities, there are still several things it can’t do natively. Smart Utilities, for BlackBerry 10 devices, fills in the gaps and brings eleven tools to the device. It features a spirit level, a large battery life remaining indicator, compass, flashlight mode, and metronome, an angle calculator for adjusting satellite dishes, a speedometer, network speed test, sound level meter, a task killer, and a binary / decimal/ Hexadecimal/Octal converter.

Business Apps for Android

ASTRO File Manager

Chances are that your Android device came with a file manager, but ASTRO File Manager gives you so much more. The utility lets you manage photos, music files, videos, documents, and more. You can manage your cloudbased services folders, including Dropbox, Google Drive, Facebook Photo Albums, and more. ASTRO File Manager also lets you manage your files from the PC. The app features a robust search utility that lets you locate files by type, name, or date. The app also supports gestures, for an intuitive navigation experience.


Cerberus is a device security app that provides, you guessed it, three ways to access your lost or stolen device. Cerberus lets you take remote control of the Android-based device via the website (, execute commands using text messages, or run a SIM checker that notifies you if an unrecognized SIM card is installed. Cerberus lets you locate the device on a map, sound an alarm even if the device is set to silent, wipe the internal memory and the SD card, hide the Cerberus app.

Presentation Remote

If you give PowerPoint presentations, then you’re probably fond of presentation remotes that let you advance slides without having to hover over the laptop or PC running the show. This app acts as a presentation remote, but it connects via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and interfaces with a client you install on your PC or laptop. The interface isn’t much to look at, but you can swipe right or left to go back and forward in the slideshow. The app works with PowerPoint, Prezi, Adobe Reader, Google Slides, OpenOffice, and LibreOffice. It also supports a slide timer.
