Juggling all of the hats you have to wear as an entrepreneur is tough, but it gets even harder when you’re constantly on-the-go. You have to be able to get things done and be mobile at the same time.

The mobile entrepreneur is a growing demographic, which means there are tons of new apps and tools designed to make your job just a little easier. From communication to productivity, we pulled together more than twenty apps to help you grind on-the-go.

Document Management

1. Google Drive

Google Drive keeps all of your documents, spreadsheets, and presentations in one place that’s hosted in the cloud. You can share docs to view or edit with anyone and collaborate in real time.

2. Awesome Screenshot

With Awesome Screenshot, you can take screenshot of your phone and highlight, annotate, and otherwise mark them up. Then you can send to colleagues or save for yourself.


3. CamScanner

CamScanner turns your cell phone’s camera into a high-quality mobile scanner. No more walking around with a million pages of paper – just scan them in and save to your phone.

4. EchoSign

Printing out documents, signing, and scanning them back in is a huge hassle. With EchoSign, you can simply e-sign documents right on your device.


5. Pocket

Pocket lets you save online articles, blog posts, or anything else for later. If you come across a great read, but don’t want to stop your workflow to read it, just save it to your Pocket and come back later.



6. Noisli

If you’re on-the-go and slip into a Starbucks to get work done, it can be tough to focus when there’s too much or too little background noise. Noisli lets you customize your ambient noise, so you can reach peak productivity in any environment.

7. Rainy Mood

Rainy Mood lets you listen to the sound of a good rainstorm anytime, anywhere. It’s great for drowning out noisy areas or to play quietly for some white noise.


8. Focus@Will

Focus@Will provides ambient, background noise. You can select music or other noises and choose from playlists designed for specific kinds of tasks.


9. WifiMapper

Getting work done on-the-go doesn’t have to mean crazy data bills. WifiMapper does just that – finds public Wi-Fi networks near you, so you can stay connected without the high price-tag.


Workflow & To-Dos

10. Evernote

Evernote helps you keep track of all of your notes, tasks, and to-dos in one, user-friendly place. Web-clipping and presentation mode make it a must-have for staying organized and getting work done on the road.

Trello keeps all of you and your team’s projects in one place, so you stay organized and informed. Monitor progress, keep checklists, and attach relevant documents.

Staying Organized

13. Boomerang for Gmail
