Building a network is one of the most important steps in being successful in business, and LinkedIn is one of the best business apps for professionals. The app has the same functions as the website has, like discussing in your groups, and checking out people’s profiles, but the platform and format is tailored for the iPhone so it is more easy and comfortable to use. Whether you are a new college graduate or a seasoned vet of your industry, the LinkedIn app is a must have.
This app helps you store and organize your business cards. By utilizing the iPhone’s camera, it recognizes the information on the business card and stores the data to its address book. All you have to do is take a picture of the business card, and Camcard will extract the name, address, and other contact information. It’s useful when you have a lot of business cards and you do not want to bring them everywhere you go.

One of the best apps for business professionals who regularly travel, TripIt in itself is very unique.
