iPhones and smart phones are no longer the luxury they were in the past. They are now a necessity! That’s right, they have become an essential part of our lives, and will only continue to become more and more vital. We all know that our smart phones help us stay in constant contact, play games, and watch movies. But did you know that they can also be an indispensable business asset as well?
There are loads of accessories, applications and gadgets that are available to help your business run faster and smoother. And, of course, your smart phone also helps you keep in touch with your staff, check emails, access the internet, text message and keep up with your social networking sites.
Cases and Skins
First things first, you need to protect your phone from damage. With much important information stored on such a delicate device it is vital to purchase a case to protect your phone. These come in thousands of colours and designs and are often custom fitting to your particular type of phone to ensure full functionality and protection.
Battery Chargers and Extenders
With today’s fast paced business environment you can easily spend half your day on your smart phone. Between answering messages, making calls, checking email, and doing research you battery is left completely drained within a couple of hours. That is why smart phone battery chargers and extenders have been created. Some charging stations still allow you full functionality of your phone. Meaning you can talk, email, and text while your phone sits snugly on the charging station.
Yet what about when you’re on the go? That is where the battery extenders come in. Much like a cell phone case, these extenders snap onto your phone for a custom fit. They can protect your phone from scratches and scoffs while extending you battery for up to 10 more hours! No more missing important calls or emails.
Note-taking Apps and Daily Planners
Did you ever leave the house without your notes? There is nothing more frustrating than not knowing your schedule or missing an important meeting because you left your planner at home. But those days are over. Smart phones have applications that allow you to program in your entire schedule! Meeting times, places, notes are all available at the touch of a button. Some of them even allow you to record notes so you can listen to them later. If you have a great idea while driving to your next meeting, just push a button and record it! This way it is safely stored until you can properly take notes about it.
Camera and Camcorders
There are a ton of new accessories that simply plug into your smart phone's jack and allow you to upgrade your camera or camcorder to high resolution. This can be an extremely useful gadget if you are an insurance adjuster that needs to take pictures often, or even if you just need to take on-going shots of the stages of development for your products. Within seconds of recording it can be sent in an email, posted on a social networking site, or downloaded to your personal computer or laptop.
Headsets, Bluetooth, and Car Mounts
With today’s laws limiting the use of cell phones while driving, headsets and Bluetooth are more important than ever before. Not only do these little devices keep you safe and your attention on the road, they are vital if you are on your phone most of the day talking. A simple car mount can also turn your smart phone into a hands free navigation system so that you never get lost again. You can have your calls announced and transmitted through your car speakers, and enable your speak-to-text features for hands free talking and texting as well.
These are just a few of the new iPhone and smart phone accessories and applications. The list of innovative phone accessories grows larger every day. There many ways to use your phone that can save you money, time, and energy for very little or no money. Do your research and see what the world of mobile accessories has to offer your business.
