If you have a smart phone or tablet, you already know that there are hundreds—thousands—of productivity apps available for the connected sales professional. Many are free; some are not. A simple Google search for recommended apps will generate pages upon pages of suggestions. Keep in mind that most of the advice you will receive is a matter of opinion based upon one’s experience. Also, new apps are created every day (and existing ones may cease to be supported), so take into consideration when the recommendation is given.
This is by no means an all-inclusive list of useful apps. Nor is it a list of the absolute best ones. This is a list of apps I personally use and find particularly beneficial. I specifically did not include the “no brainers”. For example, if you primarily fly on Delta Airlines, you don’t need me to tell you to use the Delta app (at least I hope you don’t need me to tell you that!). These are apps you may not have heard of or might not be familiar with. I hope that you find this useful.
