This is part 2 of my 2 part series in useful iPhone apps. Here’s part 1 in case you missed it. These iPhone apps make my business more profitable and productive, and I hope they can help you as well. Thanks for reading.
TripCubby & GasCubby – I use Tripcubby to keep track of the trips that I take back and forth between clients, as well as my rental property in midtown. This is great for tax purposes, and it’s a great interface. You can store multiple cars in it as well.
I use Gascubby for keeping up with my gas mileage; to make sure I get the most I can out of my tank. It’s also useful to enter all the maintenance that goes into the car, when they take place, the mileage on the car, and how much is spent. It also has a feature to remind you when to service your car next. Both of these programs can export to an easy to read excel file.
Amazon – The Amazon app is used at almost any store I come to. If I see a product that I’m interested in, and I want to know more about it, I scan the ISBN barcode with the Amazon app, and Amazon pulls up the product (as long as they sell it). I can then see the reviews people have given it, as well as how much it’s selling for. Sometimes, the store I’m in will even match the price!
Line2 – Line2 is great for my business. I pay $10 a month, and the phone number I purchased to be used for my business rings in this app, so I have two phone lines on one phone. The app rings on my phone just like it rings normally, though it displays as a Line 2 call, so I know it’s not to my personal number, and I can either send the call to voicemail (stored on Line2’s servers) or answer it. The voicemail is smart as well, displaying a visual call log just like the iPhone does. I can also use the app when there’s no cell signal in range, as long as there’s a Wi-Fi access point available to me. Line2 also includes SMS service.
