The Favorite Mobile Apps Among Successful Business Owners and Entrepreneurs

Mobile apps have become a major part of our daily lives. They are used to access news and information, connect with friends, schedule our day-to-day, and entertain us. A group of business owners was recently asked the question, “What is your favorite mobile app that you use on a daily basis?”


Their answers are below, and while there are some popular favorites that may already be on your phone, there are definitely some new additions that you will be downloading and exploring yourself.




“Slack, I use it more than any other platform. It’s easy and clear, it’s like a beefy messenger app that allows you to store conversations, and files. I love the agility of taking to multiple people individually or in tandem. It is our most used tool as a company.” — Shawn Freeman, Founder and CEO of TWT Group




“I use Twitter daily to follow news and industry happenings. It’s the easiest way to discover and absorb news because I have control over what feeds I see. From there, I get a quick overview and then can click to read full stories if they interest me enough.” — Tom Munroe, CEO of RugStudio




“The Dropbox app is one that gets a lot of use. It enables me to access any document and for team members to upload documents for companywide sharing. It’s often easier to just store them all centrally in one spot rather than emailing them and trying to find them later.” — Ari Evans of AAA Handbags




“I use the standard calendar the most and sync it with my email and several other apps. It allows me to quickly see all of my calls and meetings in one place. I can glance at it first thing in the morning and have a good sense of how the day looks. It’s simple to use, which I like.” — Christopher Dziak, CEO of Pure Nootropics




“LastPass. I use this to securely access all the various websites and services I need to use on a daily basis to manage the business. It’s a great app to ensure you are using encrypted and secure passwords — and accessing various services/logins securely.” — Shawn Schulze of


Google Analytics


“My favorite app is Google Analytics. I may have to go to rehab because I use it so much. I probably check it 50+ times a day most days, even on Saturday and Sunday. We rely on SEO for a lot of our new customer acquisition, hence my obsession with Google Analytics.” — Ben Walker, Founder of Transcription Outsourcing, LLC




“I use Evernote a lot and it’s one that probably receives the most use on a daily basis. It allows me to stay organized and it’s just an app that I have become very familiar and accustomed to using each day.” — April Gillmore, CEO of ClickFirst Marketing




“Robinhood. Great app that allows free day trading. Useful for new investors with small portfolios. You can keep track of your entire portfolio from your phone and trade in real-time when you may have a thought about a business or industry.” — Marc Webb, Founder of Real PDL Help


Google Calendar


“Google calendar is my go-to app to schedule and keep all sorts of appointments related to my law practice. It also allows me to keep specific task lists for any follow-up items that come out of any of my appointments.” — Joseph W. Belluck of Belluck & Fox, LLP




“The Outlook mail app is far superior than the iPhone’s standard email app that comes installed on the phone. There are more options available and it’s a much better option. It’s free, so I suggest everyone switch over for a much better email experience.” — Andrew Tran, Founder of Therapy


Google Apps


“Between all the apps Google offers like Google Calendar, Gmail, and Google Primer, Slack has been our favorite app to use on a daily basis. It allows our team to stay connected via private chats, team channels, and by integrating well with some of the other software we use for everyday tasks.“ — Sean Christman, Founder of Slamdot


Inbox for Gmail


“It is my primary to-do list. The ability to mix reminders with emails (which are essentially to-do items) means I have one less list to keep. Plus, it allows you to “snooze” reminders and emails until the date that is most important.” — Matthew Kolb of All High Schools




“I use the Mailchimp app to monitor and track our email marketing campaigns. It gives me access to all of our data right from my phone. The user experience is fluid and it’s easy to find what I need with little effort. There are several notification settings you can take advantage of as well.” — Jim Epton of Dom Huga Ltd
