A few young companies are simplifying the process of creating and testing mobile-phone apps, putting the tools easily in small-business owners’ price range. Bizness Apps, a rapidly growing young company out of San Francisco, for instance, provides small business owners with a template that lets them build a complete mobile app, with a wide range of features – from blog RSS feeds to loyalty cards to food ordering systems to mobile reservations – for both iOS and Android in about an hour. Moreover, their drag-and-drop system allows owners to develop their own apps, host them, and collect usage data in a straightforward manner.
What are business owners looking for every day? Three simple things: How do I increase sales, improve efficiency and build a loyal customer base? I would say those are the top three things on every business owner's mind. Entrepreneurs are a special breed, working hours that regular people would balk at, investing all of their resources into their vision, their dream and always looking for ways to improve.
With Evernote, you can clip bits and pieces of information from the web, tag them for easy searching, and alter any of them by adding to it, condensing it, or embedding pictures, tables, audio, video, and the like. You can also use Evernote for organic notes and journaling, to-do lists, recipes, contacts, and even storage for tweets or emails that you want to keep handy.
Statistics show that the average American spends more than two hours a day (!) on his or her mobile device. While probably only a handful of applications make up the bulk of this total usage, it doesn’t change the fact that each user has to unlock, scroll, and scan their device for the apps they’re looking for. Being “in the way” can be an advantage to your company, as our mind unconsciously does record every image and text (or well-designed app icon!) it comes across — even if it happens unnoticed.

Another option is HTML path. It supports any kind of smartphone. It is also a cross-platform option which businesses can focus and use some of the few services that can deliver different versions for different platforms. To engage a large number of users, businesses can go for the HTML5 approach. But HTML5 apps are usually slower as compared to other platform apps.
Basecamp is the most well-known project-management app of this trio, and it might be the easiest to use of the bunch. The interface is streamlined and intuitive, and it’s easy to invite collaborators, chat within projects, attach files, create checklists, and track your progress. You can also create helpful workflow calendars that keep everyone on track and on the same page.
The online version of MS Word lets you work in a similar fashion, it has to be said — but it feels just a little bit more ‘fussy’ and in my experience takes a bit longer to load. But it is unquestionably much better — as you might expect — for editing MS Office documents and saving them intact and without formatting problems (as discussed above, although you can save to MS Office format using G Suite, you can often end up with formatting issues).
On March 10, 2014, Google launched the Google Apps Referral Program, which offers participating individuals a $15 referral bonus for each new Google Apps user they refer.[21] Google, on June 25, 2014, announced Drive for Work, a new Google Apps offering featuring unlimited file storage, advanced audit reporting, and new security controls for $10 per user per month.[22]
Keeping notes is an important part of every CEO's daily routine. You want to make sure that any thoughts you might have are jotted down quickly so that you can move along with your day and then come back to them when it's appropriate. You could hire an assistant to shadow you while you're on the go to take care of this, or you could carry a pad of paper with you everywhere you go, but if you're the kind of business owner who wants to travel as light as possible Evernote, for iPhone and Android, is a great option as well. The app allows you to write all the notes you need while also letting you clip web articles, capture images of handwritten notes, and keep photos of physical and digital details of your projects. Their software even allows you to search through your photos and notes for individual words (both written and contained within photos) so that you can quickly and easily find everything you're looking for.

Huawei has been aware of the possibility of hostile action from the US government for years, and its consumer division boss Richard Yu recently disclosed that it’s developed its own alternatives to Android and Windows. On the mobile front, that could be a fork of the AOSP flavor of Android or an entirely new operating system, built up from scratch. In both cases, Huawei would have a mighty struggle to convince any app developers to build apps for its separate platform. If Amazon, with all its clout and influence, couldn’t do it for the Amazon Appstore on Android, Huawei stands even less of a chance. Rational app developers are hardly going to flock to a new platform that’s born of adversity and thrust into a maelstrom of political conflict.
