Need to impress your boss with how tech savvy you are? Just want to increase your productivity? TechBizEconBlog presents these 5 apps that will help put you on top of your business game and make your mobile life much easier and more secure:

My Favorite Business Apps for Android, iPhone and Blackberry – 5 Super Hot phone apps for 2013 – Tigertext

Tigertext – Secure text messaging

Price = Free ($10 a month for PRO version)

OS = Android, iOS (iPhone), and BlackBerry

https://www.tigertext.com/

Tigertext started out as a simple way to send text messages that self-delete, but it has become a popular enterprise app once companies started discovering it. Need to meet SOX and HIPAA compliance – or just wanted to make sure your employees didn’t lose sensitive information when their phones were left on the table at Starbuck’s – then Tigertext is just the app for your business. Messages are sent on a private and secure network, and the messages auto delete after a set amount of time, or by command.

Easy to use, just like regular SMS and text messages, but secure enough to meet SOX and HIPAA compliance.

Got a stack of business cards? No problem, CardMunch allows users to convert business cards to address book contacts, and then add those contacts as connections on LinkedIn. Just snap a photo of a business card, upload it to the service, and the information will be automatically added to your phone. There’s no need to hang on to the paper business card after that, relief at last!
