This freedom is accompanied by a huge amount of information and possibilities that sometimes, could be overwhelming and difficult to organize.

With these seven apps you will be able to coordinate actions and contents, to keep connected to your company, and see data and results without the necessity of losing yourself among emails, phone calls and papers.

Moreover, it is cross-platform, use it in your cell phone, tablet or pc; you’ll find everything thanks to its system of synchronization.
  2. Tempo. Mark all your meetings and inevitable social events in tempo, through voice memo and text without the need to enter any application. Tempo allows the use of a colloquial language with high reliability; it fixes all the dates without mistakes. You can see the agenda by days, have access to your meetings and look up the contacts you’re going to meet. Moreover it’s free!
  3. Cubefree. This is for those moments in which you are travelling but you need and area to work. This app allows you to locate cafeterias, libraries or co-working areas with Wi-Fi to go.

  4. Dropbox, Google Drive or any other system of storage in the cloud. You can have access from any device and from any place to all your key documentation and contacts of your company. Essential to supply last-minute oblivions and not going charged with papers everywhere!
  5. 1Password. This app is in charge of generate and memorize exclusive encrypted and long passwords, for every account you wish: social networks, credit cards and applications such as Skype.

The amount of applications for businessmen is huge. There is always one that complements or improves any of your tasks but, at the end, we fall in a maelstrom of uploads and installations of apps and its correspondent register data that we end crazy. Bet for apps such as the ones mentioned above, that coordinate actions and at the same time would allow you not to worry about papers and passwords but allow you to focus on the most important thing: your work.
