Being a business owner and a traveller is, sometimes, not an easy thing! It could be easy to get distracted by your travels or not having the proper tools to perform all the tasks you need. Especially when you’re working from a coffee shop, library or even an airport. Of course, we think that getting some help during that time to make sure your business is under control is your best idea; but if getting a VA is not an option this time; these apps will help you to do your job a bit easier:
Travelling overseas can be a bit tricky sometimes. Currencies are not an easy thing to handle when you get to a new country… until you get this app!

The best part: It’s free and you don’t need an Internet connection to use it! How great is that?
This one is an easy and powerful to do list and notes app. Why?

Do you need to send some documents to a supplier or sign an invoice and send it back? No worries, this app helps you do a professional job on the road.
You may wonder, why using Camscanner instead of just taking a picture? Easy, you are not only able to crop your picture in a fantastic way with the document in a great quality to read and print, but also they have a very useful search feature. For example, by entering “I like eating cake” in the search box, all pictures containing the text “I like eating cake” will be listed. You don’t have to dig out the entire contract you scanned or that Italian restaurant menu for Fridays nights.
Other cool features:
– It allows you to convert your pictures into PDF
– Magic colour: for coloured documents, rich and sharp colour ensured.
– B & W: removes shadows, the best for printing and faxes.
– Grayscale: preview document as printed.
– Lighten: add some fill-in lights for pictures taken in insufficient light.
This is also a tricky one. Missing meetings just because we got confused with the time zones isn’t funny. This app will help you with this issue, just by selecting the cities you need.

A great app to keep you organized not only when you travel but also in your everyday life!
