Run Your Business From Your iPad With These Handy Apps

Many business owners feel that in order to successfully manage their enterprises, they have to be based at a desk in their office. This might be the traditional way of doing things, but in the 21st-century people are constantly looking for ways to make their lives easier and the things they do more flexible.

In the business world, many people don’t have the luxury of being able to work from a fixed location on a daily basis, so the answer was to carry around a bulky and cumbersome laptop in order to manage their business affairs.

Thankfully nowadays with the evolution of computer technology, we can now perform many tasks using a lightweight and easy-to-use tablet such as the Apple iPad. Such devices enable us to run a number of ‘apps’ which are either a direct copy or an equivalent to common software used on desktop and laptop computers.

If you are a busy entrepreneur and want to manage your business on the go, here are some cool iPad apps that you need to download to your device right away!


The most popular social networking platform designed exclusively for men and women in the business world is LinkedIn. It enables entrepreneurs and business professionals from the United Kingdom and beyond to connect with each other and forge working relationships with them.

Download the LinkedIn app for your iPad from the App Store (free).

QuickBooks Online

QuickBooks Online is an essential e-invoicing iPad app for those that use the QuickBooks accounting software. This cloud-based solution lets you create invoices, sales receipts and estimates wherever you go.

For example, if you are exhibiting at a trade show and you have customers that wish to place orders with you, the app will enable you to create invoices for them so that they can be paid by your customers as soon as they get back to their respective offices!

Xero is a popular cloud-based accounting system used by a large number of businesses around the world. If you use this particular system, then you will be pleased to know that you can perform all manner of common functions using its dedicated iPad app!

Whether you need to reconcile your bank statements, create invoices or upload expenses receipts, you can do all of this and more right from the convenience of your Apple iPad!

WorldCard HD

Recently I was visiting some friends that had a stand at an exhibition. They had plenty of interested prospective buyers, and they even had several orders whilst they were at the exhibition which was pretty awesome!

But one thing that struck me was the fact that they stapled people’s business cards to a notepad and made notes about them (i.e. to contact them next week or send them invoices etc). Since they had iPads with them, I suggested that they download the WorldCard HD app.

This app enables you to scan business cards, and information is then automatically populated into a new contact record stored ‘in the cloud’!

Download the WorldCard HD app for your iPad from the App Store (£4.99).
