The world as we know it is changing. The way we do business is changing.

If you  haven’t thought about the way Apps are changing the business landscape I ask you to listen up. Apps are taking over. There are apps for almost everything. Games, social sites, books and plenty of usable cool apps for assisting you with your business.

What is an app? An app is the abbreviation for application. Mobile apps are downloadable applications for your iPhone, Android, Mac or iPad.
