The Power of Apps

From the Printware Blog on Tuesday 22nd September 2015

Amazingly, the majority of the technology we rely on today is available in app form, or enhanced by apps, not just from an aesthetic perspective, but also in terms of usability and practicality.

For example, printers are now available that can be used, quite literally, at the touch of a button on a smartphone or tablet, though we still haven’t reduced the need for printer cartridges. In fact, in a way, we rely on the basic essentials more, thanks to modern day apps.

Efficient and hi-tech, especially during important meetings, this kind of software technology can only grow and expand.

However, this isn’t the only power of apps, as there are plenty available for businesses to take advantage of. In this blog post, we will highlight just a few, in no particular order, that may be useful for you and your team.

‘Paper’ for productivity

Paper is an app designed to become your very own digital sketchbook. Perfect for brainstorming and drafting creative, visual ideas, this app is ideal for companies who spend a lot of time coming up with innovative concepts and want to take their ‘practice runs’ one step further.

Not only does the app come with an assortment of digital stationery for your convenience and benefit, it is free too (unless you want to expand your gallery of pens and paint brushes further!). It is currently only available on Apple’s renowned iPad.


Trip Advisor for travel

Almost all of us have heard of Trip Advisor. However, did you know it too is available in app form? This app is brilliant, with great features and all the ease of use as its desktop brother.

Not only will it come in handy if you tend to travel a lot for your job, making finding the best hotel or flight at the lowest price a breeze, but it is also perfect if you wish to treat your team and want to see what’s in the local area or further afield. It is available on both Android and iOS.


LinkedIn for local, national and global connectivity

Social media platforms, like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter have become a breeding place for business accounts, mostly due to the sheer volume of users these sites experience on a day-to-day basis. LinkedIn, in particular, is a fantastic place to search for other specialists in your industry and set up company events, for all relevant users to see. It is definitely one to take advantage of, that is if you haven’t already.

These are just three brilliant apps for businesses and how they benefit companies as a whole. Do you have any more that you’d like to share?
