2 Quickoffice Mobile Suite


The iPhone and Microsoft Office documents don’t necessarily go hand in hand. Although you can view email attachments of Word documents, there is no way to edit them or create your own.

Quickoffice Mobile Suite solves that problem by allowing you to view, create and edit Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint files on-the-move and then easily transfer them over Wi-Fi or send by email.

You can add multiple trips, look up alternate flights and even view a live map of your flight route with weather information of your current location and destination. This is a must-have travel companion for frequent fliers.

There is an abundance of features to choose from, too. These include full search of contacts, calendars and task items, as well as multiple calendar views, filtering options, task grouping, synchronisation with Google, Toodledo, Outlook and many more.

Data roaming while travelling abroad can be both expensive and frustrating. WifiTrak helps you avoid the unnecessary costs and spotty 3G coverage of international roaming altogether.

It can automatically scan and connect to nearby Wi-Fi hotspots that the native Wi-Fi feature on your iPhone may not even be able to detect, and offers a number of advanced settings to connect you with the most optimal wireless networks available.

10 Evernote


Evernote lets you capture and organise your thoughts and ideas in one place so you never lose that moment of inspiration. It utilises iPhone’s voice recording functionality to record voice memos and the camera to take snapshots of anything that you might want to remember. The best part, however, is how effortlessly your notes are synchronised with Evernote’s online server as well its Mac and PC clients. This is a very handy app for the creative business minds out there.
