Business men have learnt this and its not uncommon to see them with smart phones, but to fully maximize the potential of your smart phones certain apps are necessary. Today we bring you four apps that every businessman must have on his android smart phone.

(1. Documents To Go

Docs to go
Documents To Go does is an application that allows viewing and editing of Microsoft Office documents (including 2007 version files) in a very simple interface on your hand held device. In addition to working with Word, Excel, and Power Point items, you can also view PDF files. It is the perfect application to edit that presentation and make last minute alterations to your documents while rushing to the office in your car or in the elevator or even in that 3rd mainland traffic jam. And it is available on all platforms android, Ios, windows and blackberry and it works seamlessly with the desktop version.

(2. Evernote

Evernote is a New York Times Top 10 Must-Have App Winner. How does that affect me you ask! Evernote isn't just the best note taking application out there, it is a very useful and dependable life planner also. Evernote is an easy to use application that helps you remember everything you say, type, write, draw and snap across all of the devices you own. If you want to remain organized in today's hectic business world, let evernote save your ideas and improve your productivity.

With Evernote you can Sync all of your notes online and it will be available across your computers and  mobile devices. It also allows handwriting and sketches. Another new feature allows searching for text inside images. Like I said Evernote does more than Stickynotes, its a life saver.

(3. Pocket

Pocket is a that application that allows you save articles, news, videos, pictures, websites and anything that is showing on you smart phone screen so you can go back to them at your own convenient time no matter where you are.
Pocket is very useful because you can access these saved items without an Internet connection. Whether you're reading an article in the browser, an application or watching a video in the You Tube app, just hit menu and then share to save it to Pocket. Once it shows the "saved to pocket" pop-up, its saved. They are even automatically cached for offline access (videos excluded). You can view these items in article view or web view (the original view on the website).

It allows all these to give you that paper book feel. Even the transition effects feels like you are turning a real book.
Its simple and effectively used interface supports both phones and tablets. You can create bookmarks easily as well as highlight and copy parts and also write notes on chosen words, pages or chapters. Jumping to another section or chapter of the book is as easy as tapping the table of content button.
Aldiko remembers your last reading page and line and automatically brings you back to where you left off. You can also do some shopping where you browse large collections of ebooks, including best-sellers, new releases and classics most of which are FREE. Aldiko also has an in app dictionary.
