Since the smartphone revolution began, these devices started to be used in a wide variety of activities and for some very specific tasks as well. This was made possible by the development of an incredible high number of specialized apps, designed by official and independent programmers and companies. Of course that one of the most successful group of apps is the one that actually is used for something lucrative: business. This is understandable since smartphones in general have evolved to become great tools for working.
