Mobile App Watch

Facebook Pages Manager
iOS -
When Mark Zuckerburg promised that Facebook was going to focus on mobile, few knew that he meant the company would start launching multiple mobile applications — which is exactly what has happened. Aside from the main Facebook app, the world’s most popular social network also launched an Instagram-like camera app and a Facebook Pages Manager app. The Facebook Pages Manager app should prove to be very valuable for social media managers because it enables them to monitor business pages while on the move. The app allows users to view page insights, respond and comment on their business pages, as well as post status updates and share photos. The app is currently only available for iOS devices.

LinkedIn for Windows Phone
Windows -
Soon after the launch of the LinkedIn for iPad app that was featured in WM’s July edition of App Watch, the professional network released the LinkedIn app for Windows Phone. The most surprising aspect of this release is the fact that the app actually has more features than the iOS and Android versions, including the capability to follow companies and search for jobs. The free app also enables users to connect with other professionals, access real-time updates, discover news and stay up-todate with professional groups.

Expense Manager
Android -
Get your finances organized in the palm of your hands with the Expense Manager app for Android devices. The free app enables users to track expenses and income by week, month, year or category. The app can also track multiple accounts, schedule payments, take pictures of receipts, receive payment alerts, set budgets, import and export account activities as well as customize expense categories and payment methods. Internet access can be used in order to retrieve currency exchange rates if necessary.

Splashtop Remote Desktop HD
Android -
iOS -
Go anywhere with your tablet device and have complete access to your desktop computer after downloading the Splashtop Remote Desktop app for Android tablets and iPad. Users simply need to purchase the app and then download the Splashtop Streamer onto their desktop computers. The app automatically finds the user’s local computers or enables the user to sign into their Gmail account to locate their desktop across the Internet. Once the setup is complete, users will be able to access their desktop programs, games, multimedia content and files over Wi-Fi and 3G/4G networks. Web workers will have an easier time leaving their laptops at home with this app.

Sign documents directly from your mobile device with EasySign, a free app that works with both the iPhone and iPad. The app supports most document forms, including PDF, Word, Excel, Text, HTML and images. It enables users to sign documents themselves, or obtain signatures from other people via a stylus or finger. Users can also customize their signatures by choosing from multiple ink colors, text styles and date formats. This app is particularly useful for signing timesensitive documents while out of the office, such as contracts, agreements, invoices, purchase orders or loan applications.
