Must have android business apps on your phone/ tablet

Must have free android applications for business use

Hello friends,
Have a fantastic day ahead. I have been using android apps for quite longer time and thought why I should not write a blog post on useful business android apps. I have used most of the apps and found extremely useful. By using these apps, we can organize our task, enhance productivity and can become stress free.

Kingsoft Office 5.6.1 (Free)

Imagine, you are going back to your home from office, somebody has sent you an important file in .doc, .docx (word), .xls, .xlxs (excel), .ppt, ,ppts (PowerPoint), PDF, RTF and other formats. Now there is no time to reach home / back office and check the attachment. The Kingsoft office is a perfect choice. I know some of the readers may be carrying laptop or netbook so they might not need this app. However, individual like me who travels only with the mobile, this app is immensely useful.
You can read the documents on go, you can edit it and send it. You can also save it in lower version of the office if required.
Now, this app is available in multi- language too.

Download it from play store by clicking following link:

PrinterShare™ Print PDF/Photo

Print anytime, anywhere from your Android device! Now you can instantly print office documents, bills and invoices (Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint; PDF, text files and more) directly from your device to a printer right next to you or across the world.
Also you will be able to print emails from Gmail (including attachments - PDF, DOC, XSL, PPT), print photos and images (JPG, PNG, GIF), print contacts, agenda, sms/mms, call log, web pages (HTML) and other digital content from device internal memory, SD card or cloud source such as Google Drive / Google Docs.
You may configure many print options including paper size, page orientation, number of copies, page range, one- or two-sided printing (duplex mode), print quality (resolution), printout mode (color or monochrome), output tray and more.
With the free version of the app you can:
* Print a test page to determine compatibility, as not every printer is supported;
* Print via Google Cloud Print at no extra-charge (free, without limitations);
* Print 20 pages in Remote mode over the Internet.
This comes as a free as well as on purchase (pro/ higher version). I have used basic free version and it worked quite well. This is particularly useful when you are travelling, you have document in your cloud (google/ drive/ dropbox) and you urgently need to print this at your office.

I have used it quite a time and found extremely valuable. It is a must app for skill enhancement and reading purpose. It contains articles on various topics.

This mobile App draws corporate management lessons from India’s great epic Mahabharata. It is so amazing that management strategies applied by Pandavas for winning at that time are still so relevant. Download this mobile app and find out now.
I downloaded and browsed through the content. I found it is helpful to understand strategy and relate the same with our business scenarios including delegation and leadership command, style.

The Expense Manager helps you to organize your expenses in a proper way. This app reduces the overhead of maintaining our expenses in a diary and tracking at the end of the month. Using this app we can track the expenses based on different options like By Category, Date, Month, year and Payment Mode in a simple way.
-> Simple and Easy to Use.
-> Supports Honey Comb
-> Add custom categories and append a picture to the custom category using Camera or From Gallery
-> Export the expenses to the form of Excel Sheet.
-> Track Expenses - Monthly, Yearly, Payment Mode, Category and Date Wise.

Well, I have been using this apps since June 2013 and found it extremely useful to track my official as well as personal expenses. It is customizable, country specific so you can design your own expenses head. Many times, when we spend from our pocket we forget, with this app we can track our all expenses. This apps falls under both personal and business category, so I have added it here.
