A few months back, we brought 5 Great iPhone Apps for Small Business. Now, we’re going to tell you our picks for 5 great apps for the Blackberry. When we were narrowing down the list, we focused specifically on apps that will help you, the small business owner, be more efficient and save time. So, here are our picks:
Exgis Mileage Tracker for the BlackBerry is a simple application for users who need to record their driving distances. This application is the perfect companion for users who travel often and need to record where they go. Keep track of mileage travelled for clients and projects, manage your list of clients, create categories, export your mileage to excel and more.
Today, it’s all about contacts, networking and who you know and who knows you. Contaxx is a simple app that equips you to exchange contact information in a quick way. Send your business card electronically from cell to cell – with one click. Recipients then add contact information to their address book with just one click, and the recipient doesn’t need to download Contaxx.
The #1 paid business app harnesses the power of WiFi. WiFi File Transfer for Blackberry allows for speedy file transferring. You can easily transfer documents, images, video, music or more from your PC or Mac to your BlackBerry – all through your web browser.
Handylogs helps you keep track of expenses and mileage. You can sort your expenses with customizable lists and categories while the odometer will automatically calculate your distance travelled. If you’re on the road a lot for work, this is a handy app to have.
Drivesafely is the #1 mobile app against distracted driving and is actually great for everyone, not just small business owners. DriveSafely speaks txt (SMS) and email messages aloud so you can concentrate on the road. The Pro version ($19.99) lets you chat by sending text responses by voice and use voice commands like: repeat message, or call back sender.
