One of the most common questions we get at Nerds Limited from small business owners is, “I love my iPad, how can it help me streamline my small business like it streamlined my personal life?” Glad you asked! Here are some of the best apps for small businesses.
Get a Pro Dropbox account and use it to store only your documents. That will allow every one you authorize to view current files in the field. Next, there’s Polkast and its accompanying Polkast for iPad app. This little beauty will allow access to a PC or Mac’s storage as long as the computer is on. Finally, there’s the expensive, but crucial LogMeIn Ignition which allows unlimited direct screen sharing via iPhone or iPad from anywhere in the world. Move your mouse from anywhere you have net access! All without monthly subscriptions to expensive remote clients.
On the hardware side, if your small business gives presentations, don’t overlook the relatively inexpensive iPad HDMI Adapter. This little beauty takes the guesswork out of presenting a slide show and makes the entire workflow feel more natural. If you’re feeling like you’d really like to impress during your presentations, pick up a 2nd Generation Apple TV and use it to give your presentations wirelessly! Pace around with the iPad and as long as both devices are connected via WiFi, rest assured, your presentation will come through flawlessly! The Apple TV can do what theAirport Express does with Airplay to stream to speakers, except with HD video.
