The iPhone 4S has proven to be a popular choice for many types of user. Business users are one of the demographics which is ideally placed to take advantage of the applications offered by the AppStore. In this article I will look at a couple of essential apps for business users.
A particularly innovative app which is sure to prove a lifesaver for business users is TurboScan. This app utilises the 8 megapixel camera included with the iPhone 4S to scan paper documents. The app will then save and image of the document and automatically straighten the image, detect the edge of the paper and automatically set the optimum contrast ration. When the image is saved, the app then converts to a PDF or JPEG file, meaning users can then email or wirelessly print the file. This is likely to prove handy for several types of business applications. For example, if you are a sales representative who often travels to meetings you may not necessarily have access to a scanner or photocopier. You could then use TurboScan to send a copy of a document to your office or take advantage of the iCloud service to send it to another Apple device like and iPad or iMac. TurboScan costs just £1.49, and I’m sure you will agree that this is a small price to pay for functionality that it provides.
UK Postage Calculator
If you are in business, then the chances are that you often have to send packages and mail to clients, customers and other businesses. To make it easy to calculate the cost of sending these items, there is a handy app available called UK Postage Calculator. All you have to do is select a number of options using the touchscreen. The options include the destination, type of item being sent (letter, package, parcel etc), service (1st class, special delivery etc), and whether you want the package signed for. You then input the weight of the item using the slider, again by using the touchscreen. you will then be presented with a list of prices based on Royal Mail services. If you send multiple items in the post every day, this is a great way to get the costs before you take your items to the Post Office at the end of the day. This app costs just £0.69, so it is great value considering convenience it offers.
There are thousands of other apps available within the Business category of the AppStore, and if you are a business user who has an iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S, you are sure to find plenty of apps to improve productivity and save time. The iPhone 4S is available now on all major UK networks.
