This app allows you to easily manage your customers, invoices, estimates, and expenses from work, home, or on-the-go; allowing you to stay productive, organized, and connected. A list of its features is going to knock you off your feet! quick_book

Woah ! that is a Lot. Of. Work !!! Imagine how Snow White would have fared if her wicked step-mother or the dwarves had access to this app ! Now that would’ve been a fairy tale with a twist ! Makes me wonder…..

google-drive (1)Google Drive: If you are aiming for the stars, then this app is for you because just like it’s name, it motivates you to work harder and faster (Go gulp a glass of Horlicks if you were expecting to read stronger.) What this app does is work a bit like a store house, allowing you store all your files (photos, documents, videos and so on.)  in one place, so you can access them from anywhere and share them with others by using the app on your phone to access Google Drive. Let’s look up what this lets you do and then we’ll work on upgrading our excuses (Darn, Technology !)

* Upload files to Google Drive directly from your Android device
* Share any file with your contacts
* Access files others have shared with you on Google Drive
* Make any file available offline so you can view them even when you don’t have an Internet connection
* Manage files on the go
* Create and edit Google documents with support for tables, comments and rich text formatting
* Create and edit Google spreadsheets with support for text formatting, multiple sheets and sorting
* Edits to your Google documents and spreadsheets appear to collaborators in seconds
* View Google presentations with full animations and speaker notes
* View your PDFs, Office documents and more
* Scan documents, receipts and letters for safe keeping in Drive; then search by contents once uploaded
* Print files stored in Google Drive on the go using Google Cloud Print
* Open files stored in Google Drive through Drive enabled apps in the browser
That is a lot of stuff this app lets us do and to be honest, the only excuses that would work are “ My dog swallowed my phone !” So unless you have a really small phone and a really huge dog, it’s back to work, chum! Yeah! yeah! I agree, evolving sucks!
