If you don’t give your customers the service they deserve, you won’t be around long whatever field you’re working in. Whether your enterprise is big or small, customers expect to be served 24/7 and thanks to mobile devices, you can provide client support on your mobile or tablet very easily thanks to the wealth of customer service apps for Android available today. And it’s a sound investment. A good customer service app for Android can make the difference between a customer who sticks with and one who becomes a customer service horror story like these.

Here are six excellent Android customer service apps that will ensure you and your team can provide a high quality customer service and also that your customers feel valued. Many of these Android apps are included in GetApp’s GetRank quarterly ranking system of top business software. They are all free to download and install but you’ll need a subscription to the corresponding SaaS software vendor in order to use the app. I’ve listed the starting prices below, and many have free trials.


Your Android device can be a powerful project management tool if you make sure you select the right apps for it. But it’s important to avoid complicated, clunky Android project management software, as there’s nothing worse than fumbling around in an app trying to find the right features.

When looking for the best project management apps for Android it’s important to make sure that the app helps you assign and allocate work in the correct way. You should also look out for analytical tools that help you stay on top of your project goals. This sounds easy but can be a tricky to get right because many Android project management apps simply don’t give you enough solutions to do both effectively.

One of my biggest pet peeves with the Android ecosystem thus far has been a lack of great apps for writers. Maybe it’s because that’s what I do for a living and I can’t see past my own professional needs, but it’s been a thorn in my side since I started playing with Android in 2010. But over the past year, the ecosystem has made some remarkable progress, and writers haven’t been left as wanting as they were in the past.

I personally prefer Markdown as a writing method, which uses a simple syntax that makes typing HTML a lot easier. It’s been my preferred syntax for almost two years now, and I’ve been waiting for Android to catch up with iOS’s barrage of Markdown editors. At the same time as Android has been catching up, I’ve been asked if I could round up a few of my current favourite apps. Here are five of them.


A couple of months ago, I put the top four note-taking apps on Android to test in an attempt to figure out what each one was good at. If there’s one other thing I use my phone most for – barring the usual calling & texting, of course – it is to manage my todo lists. So this time around, I take the top task management apps on Android and put them through the paces to try and identify a winner.

Now I’m not new to this game, really. For years, I’ve pounced upon every app that had anything to do with task management, GTD and the likes. Having gone from using Remember The milk to Astrid to Wunderlist, back to Remember the Milk & Todoist, I keep going through the phases every time the landscape seems to change a bit. Consider this that phase, and join me as I go through each app and review it on three parameters – core features, user interface and other bells and whistles.


School is upon us and as much as we’d hate to admit that summer is almost over, it’s time to start the preparations. Whether you’re headed to school or college, you’re probably looking for the most efficient ways to get ready for your new schedules and courses.

If you have an Android tablet, be it a new Nexus 7, an old Nexus 7, or any tablet from Samsung, Asus, or other companies, you already own one of the best tools for managing your school life. In this roundup, I will look at some of the best free apps for students — and teachers — to help you make the most of your Android tablet.


When Google launched Keep a couple of months ago, everyone started comparing it with similar apps that have been around much longer. Although Evernote was the most talked about, there is no dearth of note-taking apps on the web or any of the popular mobile platforms. From plain text solutions to feature-packed mammoths, there is a ton of competition out there.

Having tried and endlessly switched between a whole bunch of apps over the years, I decided to give Keep a shot to check how it fared against some of the others that have come close to being a staple on my Galaxy Nexus.


At the University where I teach, the Spring semester is in full swing. Students, Faculty, and Staff are settling in and getting into a good routine. One of the things I’ve noticed is that tablets are becoming a lot more popular among students, and for good reason! You can download textbooks, take notes, and stay organized; and there are tons of apps out there to help! While I won’t cover the basic/common apps (like Kindle or Google Books for textbooks), I do have 10 apps designed for both students and Android tablets.


It’s National Novel Writing Month once again, time to challenge yourself to write 50000 words in 30 days, no easy feat!
