10 more must-have apps for mumpreneurs

To work effectively as a mumpreneur you need to be able to work from anywhere at any time, and thanks to laptops, smartphones, tablet PCs and innovative apps, making your business portable has never been easier.


With so many great apps available to help make running your business on the go possible, and your life easier in the process, I thought I would add to the previous list of must-have apps for mumpreneurs and bring you 10 more.


So here are my next top 10 apps that have helped me work effectively on the go and simplify my life so I have more time for what’s most important.


1. LogMeIn


As a mumpreneur, being able to access all of your files and folders on the go is a must. With LogMeIn you can access your PC or Mac from your mobile or tablet while you are out and about.


All of your files, folders and applications can easily be accessed giving you the flexibility to leave the office and go to the park or play centre without leaving anything behind. Just keep in mind that you do need 3G or Wi-Fi to access it.


2. Instapaper


Thanks to social media and internet searches I’m constantly coming across websites, articles and blog posts that I want to read, but don’t have the time to straight away.


Instapaper allows you to save the content you want to read later on, offline. So you can view articles on your smartphone, iPad or computer when it’s more convenient – without needing Wi-Fi or 3G.


3. OfficeTime


As a freelance copywriter, tracking my time is vital. Not just to monitor the time spent when I’m working on an hourly rate, but also to help me monitor the amount of time I spend on each task so I can identify ways to work more efficiently and make sure that when I quote per project my time scheduling and rates are accurate and I’m not underquoting.


With OfficeTime, your time and expenses are easily tracked, reported and organised so you can invoice quickly. It’s even intuitive enough to know when you’ve been away from your computer or phone and allows you to put that time into another project or leave it off all together.


4. PayPal


Whether you suddenly remember that you need to pay someone, or you need to check if they have paid you, PayPal makes making and receiving payments on-the-run easy.


5. Shoeboxed


Bookkeeping is by far my most hated job, though it is made a little easier with Shoeboxed. Shoeboxed helps turn that pile of receipts into digital data for effortless expense reporting, accounting, bookkeeping, and tax preparation that can then be exported to MYOB, Excel, QuickBooks, CSV and more.


You just take pictures of receipts and Shoeboxed human verifies the data, entering the date, amount, payment type, vendor and category, and sending it back to you when done.
