Apps I can’t live without: Five entrepreneurs reveal their top three

27

Tim Fung – co-founder and chief executive of online tasks outsourcer Airtasker

 

Dropbox – An oldie but a goodie. I use DB across all the companies that I work in and love the fact that I can access my files from anywhere, including from my iPhone. The app can be a little bit pervasive (trying to get you to store and sync all of your personal photos, etc) but it does make life pretty easy and is good risk management in case you lose your device.

 

GoCatch – A really good taxi hailing app. I use these guys to grab taxis between meetings and the office to make sure I’m not waiting outside on busy days. It’s a super simple app and also lets me keep track of my taxi receipts, which is a plus.

 

Pocketbook – An easy to use app for tracking your personal budget. You just link up your bank accounts and credit cards and then PB sends you an update each week to let you know if you’re overspending or within budget. They also have a bunch of features to monitor and analyse where you’re spending and where you could save.

 

 

Andrew Ward – managing director of online investment community SelfWealth

 

LinkedIn app – As an entrepreneur, LinkedIn on your iPhone/on the move is invaluable. Each time you read a media story about other entrepreneurs, or a story related to your target market, connecting to these related parties ASAP is a must.

 

Ingogo – The taxi booking app. This is a must for an entrepreneur getting around in the boondocks and racing to get to that next meeting.

 

Cricket Australia’s “Live” app – I’m a cricket tragic; enough said.

 

 

Ben Cohn – co-founder of mobile self-storage firm TAXIBOX

 

Swann View – Swann View gives us live, streaming access to our surveillance systems through an iPhone. It’s an incredible feeling waking up every morning and seeing the entire company running smoothly – without us!

 

Dropbox – The Dropbox app seamlessly integrates with Dropbox Desktop and allows us to run a large portion of TAXIBOX’s operational processes without having to be near a computer.

 

Face Swap – Because there’s nothing quite like seeing your parents swap genders!
