When something has been a part of the norm for long enough, we lose interest in it, and it eventually becomes boring. This has somewhat occurred with smartphones – and while there are certainly plenty of people that are passionate about smartphone tech – the majority of people view them as little more than everyday tools. But smartphones are incredibly complex, powerful computers that are designed from the ground up to be as portable as possible thanks to advanced battery systems.
It’s impressive, but what’s just as impressive is the innovative operating systems that run these devices. Android is a great example. It offers a powerful, fast, and easy-to-use mobile operating system that provides access to a fantastic range of apps. Many of these apps are powerful and refined enough that they match their desktop counterparts – which begs the question, can we do without the desktop or laptop altogether?
Let’s Start With Google
The big player in the room when it comes to personal business management is Google. Not only do they make it easy, but their tools are probably one of the best around when it comes to managing the business while on a mobile. In fact, there are apps and services dedicated to managing a business from Android, such as their Google Business Profile.
Once this is up, it gets forwarded to Google Maps, which has become one of the best ways to find new businesses.
On top of that, Google also offers free, spam-proof email, note taking, document creation, and so much more, all at no cost. The only real downside is that the company is known for its bad personal data practises – so a bit of research beforehand might be necessary.
Finding success with a business means having to branch out to as many different platforms as possible, and this includes social media. There are billions of people across the world that use social media, with Facebook, Instagram, Reddit, and TikTok being some of the biggest names in the industry.
Creating and maintaining a social media presence is exceptionally easy when done on mobile devices, both with Facebook and Instagram having put much of their focus and effort on offering premium apps on mobile. And there are virtually no limits to the kind of content that can be posted on social media – making it a great way to advertise products and services that wouldn’t make it into the local town paper; some examples of this might be a beer-brewing workshop, professional poker rooms, horse racing betting odds sportsbooks services, and just about anything imaginable.
The next big step to take is finding a way to make the finances work. But once again, Android or iOS comes to the rescue. Most big banks in the world now provide their own in-house, dedicated apps, making it easier than ever to bank on a phone.
In fact, many banks have put serious funding into their apps, turning it into a mobile financial ecosystem on its own. PayPal and other similar services also provide native apps, and any other sites that don’t have an app can simply be accessed by using a browser like Firefox or Chrome.
