The iPhone is an incredibly versatile mobile device that can handle a variety of applications without slowing down.

With the help of the right apps, making sure every endeavor is executed efficiently will be much easier.
1. Project Management Software

Having to switch between the computer in the office and the iPhone just to check schedules for meetings, deadlines and project setups, can be a hassle. This app syncs with any of the user’s email accounts so that they can take all of their to-do lists anywhere they want.
Edit tasks when a meeting is cancelled or when a project is postponed, or create a brand new task list for new projects. An Internet connection isn’t required at all times, as changes made offline are saved and synced to the user’s email or to iCal when the phone gets back online.

This app is actually a mobile companion to the award-winning all-around project management program for Mac OS X, so it requires having the software first installed on the user’s iMac or MacBook.
Once the two software have been connected through the iPhone Sharing Module, users can then bring all their carefully-drafted projects in their pockets. The mobile app’s key features are the ability to (1) modify every bit of information on the projects, (2) attach files, photos and more to the task lists, and (3) view color-coded charts for project timelines.

Chart the progress of any project with the exclusive calendar view, which outlines the entire business plan in a nice streamlined chronological diagram.

For those who already use the main web app, syncing of data between its server and the iPhone is fast and constant, so there is hardly any downtime.

6. Zoho Projects
Like the Outpost 2 app, users need to have an account on the Zoho Projects online web tool because this mobile app is merely an extension. However, it does prove itself to be very useful in its own right. Besides the standard access to view and edit established projects and the ability to create new tasks, it features an easily navigable Smart View interface, instant online updating to inform contacts, and simple task accomplishment checking and delegation.
Take down notes using the voice recorder so not a single minute is wasted having to type every little detail. Keep to a tight schedule with the timer feature that can log in start and stop times for any activity.
