With the host of apps out there to choose from, figuring out which ones you actually need can cause a major headache.

Read on to learn about six apps you should give a chance.
There’s a huge percentage of business professionals and entrepreneurs who consider PayPal the premier invoicing tool. If you rely on PayPal payments from clients or if you use your PayPal account to make business purchases, you’ll want to be able to keep up with it when you’re out and about. The PayPal app for the iPhone makes it easy to check your balance, withdraw money to your bank account and send money to other PayPal users.
Unlike other social media platforms, Instagram doesn’t have an easy way to schedule posts. Latergramme works to solve that problem where HootSuite and similar posting apps have fallen short. With Latergramme, you upload a photo, write a caption and then schedule it for a certain time and day. When the time comes, you’ll get a notice that it’s time to post your photo. While it won’t do it automatically for you – there’s no way to do that for Instagram just yet – it is the most effective way to stay on schedule.
Several social media sites, like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn, integrate with Buffer so that you can post in real time or schedule posts for later. Buffer goes above and beyond, though, providing tons of valuable insight for its users. From their regularly updated blog with the latest social media information to built-in analytics, you won’t need to use any other posting tool once you try Buffer.
