Top Mobile Apps for Productivity
by Paula J. Hane
In last month's Spotlight article, I highlighted some browser extensions that I find to be very useful. The article has proven popular with readers, and I've even benefitted from readers' suggestions. So, now I'd like to cover some of the mobile apps that I've found to be the most helpful. I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone running Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean), and the apps I'm including here are available for Android devices (at the Google Play Store), and some are also available for Apple iOS at the Apple iTunes store. I trust you will find these to be handy and serve as a starting point to look for others. (If you have others in your toolkit that you'd like to share, let me know.)
