To keep an eagle’s eye view of your data while you’re storming the castle, click on over to Analytiks App. Recently updated, this app is a top-rated favorite for good reason.  The data presented is not just clear and accurate, it’s visually pleasing.

Online Shopping Organizer

Slice App fro business
How much time have you wasted searching for tracking info for that package you think you ordered two weeks ago? Exactly. Entrepreneurs make plenty of purchases and they’re often on the fly. We seldom have time to follow-up on shipments until it’s late and we’re scrambling. Solve that dilemma with the Slice App. Slice will automatically scan your gmail and Yahoo! mail accounts to track and organize your online spending for easy access to purchase history, monitor expiration dates, and provides a single delivery map without the cut/paste tracking number hassle.

Your New Best Friend

Entrepreneurs are notorious for having “shiny object” syndrome for good reason- squirrel! The blessing and curse is that we are constantly inspired. So how do you collect AND organize all that inspiration that’s bouncing around? You download Evernote. This workhorse of an app allows to to collect anything you see, do, hear, say and then allows you to carefully organize with tags, text notes, or keyword search. That information is then available on your computer, phone, and mobile device seamlessly.
