10 Best Free Business Apps and Tools

1. LogMeIn

LogMeIn app for iOS devices

This free application allows you to access your Windows or Mac computer remotely from your iPad or iPhone to find files or fix any problems. While LogMeIn has been around for a while, they just recently released a free version of their LogMeIn app for iOS devices .

2. AnyMeeting

This free tool makes giving webinars and presentations to remote audiences easy. One registered person can invite up to six people to stream video and two hundred people to watch, so you can host or attend that important business meeting from virtually anywhere.

3. CrashPlan

While the free version doesn’t allow for online backup, this utility does automatically back up your files and lets you back up to colleagues’ systems. This is important to help make sure you don’t lose all your critical files in the event of a hard drive failure.

6. Ghostery

finding online trackers

Available for Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, and Safari, this browser add-on tells you when a website is tracking you. This is helpful for those who are always on the Web and want to do confidential business deals online.

7. K-9 Mail

An improvement over Android’s preloaded email application, it can support both POP3 and IMAP email. It can allow you to consolidate several email accounts all into one K-9 email, viewable in one inbox, or you can view them in separate folders. Having all your accounts tied into one means you spend less time checking email, so there is more time in your day for the more important tasks.

8. YouSendIt Lite

This free app lets you send large files through email. Though it caps out at 50 MB, that is still larger than Gmail’s file-size limit.

9. Tape-A-Talk


The Android app uses your phone’s mic to record a presentation. That way you never miss a thing that was said, and you have it on file to review later if you need to refer back to it.

10. Any.DO

Essentially a free basic to-do list app, its straightforward design makes it easy to track your tasks for the day and stay on task. You can also set reminders for jobs that need doing, and share with other Any.DO users.

This is just a small sample of the many services available to help simplify a business man’s life. By using these tools, they’ll enable you to  spend more time on what matters most.
