There are apps for everything - to entertain, to try on hairstyles, to collect cute kitties - but there are loads of them designed to help you work smarter, too. If you want to be more efficient in the office (and on the go), here are the apps for work you ought to try.
This is the group messaging app we use here at AWS, and it's fab! It's an excellent way to brainstorm, share thoughts and ideas, and just communicate.
This app sends you real-time notifications to your iPhone inbox when someone reads your email, which is so much better than just guessing.
What a cute way to stay focused on your work! Plant a little seedling when you start working, and it grows while you work. Bye-bye distractions, I have trees to grow!
Whether you're walking a few blocks to a client meeting, or you're traveling across the globe for a conference, this app gives you a remarkably accurate arrival time.
I know this isn't technically a work app, but hear me out: it can help you achieve the retirement you want, and that's totes work-related. It takes the spare change from your everyday purchases and invests it - so clever!
I love their slogan: why type when you can swype? I'm not very good at this, but I have co-workers who swear by it, and they're so fast!
This is the end-all, be-all app for anyone who craves organization. Here you can sync all of your personal and work-related projects, to-do lists, and more.
If there's a goal you're trying to reach, this app can get you there. The goal doesn't matter: work, personal life, fitness, the app can help you with any sot of objective you're trying to reach.

I love the idea of being able to manage all of my work and personal email boxes without having to merge them, and this mail app does exactly that.

What does collecting adorable kitties have to do with work? Absolutely nothing, except that it's a fantastic little break from the workday hustle. Stand up from your desk, stretch a little, go for a short walk, and see who's visited your yard.
If you have a to-do or other list to work on and share, this app can help you (and your team mates) get it all done.

I know what you're thinking: $40 is an awful lot to spend on an app! But it's worth every penny because it truly help you focus on what matters most, while ignoring (or just pausing) the irrelevant. The perspective you can get from an electronic device is just amazing.
Another to-do list maker and tracker, but this one's just so simple and easy-to-use, I had to include it.
If you're not already using 'Gram to connect with and interact with your clients and potential customers, now's the time to try it!
I love this list manager because I like sorting my lists by date, and then by seeing them in chronological order, as they should be.
I might be slightly biased, but I love the daily articles with tips for every aspect of my life, including my work life.
We know WHY we're supposed to use different passwords for all of our work systems, but it's hard to remember them, all! This app can help, though ironically, you have to have a password to use it, for obvious security reasons.
