communication. Like most executives, your smartphone has replaced your laptop

organization when away from your desk. The world of smartphones has several
powerful apps to be productive even while on the move.
In short, your mobile
device is your lifeline—but are you using it to the fullest?
To help you work at full capacity and avoid time traps,
we’ve compiled a list of the top TEN best business apps for busy executives along with links to download.

If you're an executive at a global company, chances are you
work with people all around the world or travel to areas where people may not
speak English. Most executives know that learning a second language that is
common in the business world can go a long way. DuoLingo keeps it simple
for such executives to communicate easily.
Flipboard has turned into a must-have app for most of
the executives. It's a great aggregator and curator of news and social content
to help them easily stay on top of the subjects and categories they are interested
in and passionate about. And since it places all the content in magazine-like
sections, one can easily flip through categories and topics to get a nice
overview of subjects in a great blend of long-form articles.
