If you are a small business owner, you already know that running your company takes up your entire day…and then some.
Business owners who aren’t organized? Their businesses fail. Luckily for us, there are lots of apps for iPhone owners to help us juggle the countless tasks associated with keeping a business afloat. Business News Daily recently took a look at these essential apps.
Yes, your iPhone already comes with a default calendar app. But it’s simply not that good. The $1.99 Fantastical 2 calendar app, though, is. Business News Daily raves about several of its features. But the most intriguing? You can tell Fantastical 2 what you must do in a given day — for example, you can say “I’m meeting Sarah for dinner on January 21 at five p.m.” — and the app will instantly schedule that appointment for you. That’s a true time-saver.
A more powerful scheduler
The schedules of business owners can easily become cluttered. A good scheduling app is very important. The free Schedule Planner app is a great one. Business News Daily has plenty of nice things to say about Schedule Planner: It’s simple to learn, easy to use and boasts several powerful features. A neat feature? Business owners can assign colors to different tasks: Red can mean meetings, blue can mean sales calls and orange can mean free time. The app then generates charts to show you how much time you’re devoting to each activity. This is a good way for business owners to assess their priorities and make changes when needed.
To-do lists are critical for business owners. But pen-and-paper lists are, needless to say, limited. The free Any.do app changes this. This electronic to-do list has its own set of unique features created to help business owners operate more efficiently. For instance, you can use the app to add tasks to four categories: today, tomorrow, this week or someday. This helps owners keep track of immediate tasks and long-term goals both.
