Mobile apps for startups

Practical iOS apps for founders

Building your own existence is like a bold undertaking and an adventure at the same time. Because anyone who becomes self-employed has a lot to do and has to keep an eye on all information and tasks. Even if you can read a lot on the Internet, it is often difficult to find exactly the right information at the right time. Especially when you are on the go and cannot sit at your PC or laptop. Apps that you can use on the iPhone or iPad on the go are suitable for this. Most of the time, the mobile helpers are even clearer and summarize essential information better than some websites.
