Like all small business owners I am sometimes overwhelmed by all the information I have to keep track of just to make a dollar. If you own a smart phone you'll find where there's a need there is an app for that. Here are a few I like.

  • Triplog - GPS Mileage Tracker by ESOCIAL ----this app keeps track of your mileage vs expenses and allows you to download a monthly report. Some features, like receipt uploads require payment, but most of the outstanding features are free. Just set up the GPS to track at the beginning of the trip and at the end click the end trip button and the mileage is tallied for you and added to the monthly report. This outstanding and easy to use app will allow you to maximize all that mileage at the end of the year.
  • Business Calendar---I've imported all my important calendars into one place---all color coded so that I know what everyone is doing and when. Great if you need to work around different client schedules or need to know what the customer is doing for web information and coordination.
  •  Inkpad Notepad---I searched a while and tried several before I found this wonderfully simple to do list app to keep me organized and on task. Maintain multiple lists, cross off tasks as they are completed so that you always get the satisfaction of being productive. And you can back up your lists to the server if you want that option.  
  • Bar Code Scanner---Uses your phone's camera to scan bar codes. Great if you are in retail because you can do a bit of inventory with your phone if need be.    
These are just a few of mine. What are yours?
