Share this Article:

Self-employed people think of time is money and that knowledge is power. Those are two clichés that couldn’t be truer for every self-employed entrepreneur. That’s why they were early adopters of the smartphone and tablet. Self-employed people also love their apps.

These digital tools on smartphones and tablets help organize their day, keep them in touch, provide necessary data, stay healthy and track their money. Here is a look at 20 business opportunity apps that every self-employed person needs to give a try.

Self-Employed Top 20 Must-Have Apps for the Business Opportunity and Franchise Owner

Buffer. This social media scheduler lets you load it up with a number of posts for various platforms all at one time. Buffer automatically posts them at the times you decide.

Google Drive. Share your documents and files with your clients, colleagues and employees by storing them in Google Drive, the cloud-based file-sharing and hosting app. It speeds up communication and keeps everyone on he same page.

Fleksy. Hate your smartphone or tablet keyboard? You’re not alone. Fleksy lets you customize it, including the size of the text and the color. It uses shortcuts, word suggestions and gesture-based movement to speed up your typing.

LISTEN. Respond to calls when you’re too busy to answer with a customized reply, either voice or SMS. The app uses ringback tone technology that integrates with your calendar so you can auto reply based on the meeting you are at. It also uses location detection so you can send messages that are based on where you are.

Venmo. Send money to anyone using this handy app. Unlike Paypal, it doesn’t charge a transfer fee or have a long form that you need to fill out first.

Using GPS, it tracks an interactive route on the map for your next workout.

MyFitnessPal. Wonder how many calories you’re eating? MyFitnessPal lets you see what you’re eating, how much water you’re drinking, how active you are and how much weight you are losing. Charts make it easy to track your progress at a glance.

MOVES. Worried you’re doing more talking than moving? MOVES can help. It monitors all your movements, helping your turn small improvements into daily habits. It turns any smartphone into a pedometer and more. It tells you how many minutes you are active and how many calories you are burning.

GPS4Soul. Stressed? That’s standard for entrepreneurs, but it’s not healthy. GPS4Soul measure your heart rate to determine your stress level. It offers guidance to help calm you down, from meditation to yoga and affirmations. Customize it to add your favorite songs or pictures of your dog.
