Can Apps Help You With Your Work Productivity?

As we have moved farther down this road called “technology,” more and more devices have appeared on the scene both in our personal and work lives. A few years ago a cell phone was used for one purpose—to make phone calls, and a tablet was something we took with a glass of water!

Today, mobile devices—smartphones and tablets–have evolved to include features that not only help us communicate with others, but also help us navigate the ways in which we do business and complete daily tasks. These features and applications (also called “apps”) will have a lasting change of the world of work.
