Fight the Of­fice Mad­ness.

HWM (Malaysia) - - THINK - BY HAFEEZ SIM

Mo­bile apps aren’t only for play; there are quite a few that help you with work. Here are our picks to wipe your of­fice plate clean.

CLEAR Plat­form:

iOS Price: US$4,99

Stay on top of things with the Clear app, which lets you com­pile a list of things to do. What’s ap­peal­ing about the app is that the in­ter­face is clean and sim­ple, while you can con­trol the app al­most com­pletely through ges­tures. Tasks are col­or­coded, so you can iden­tify which tasks are the most press­ing at a glance.

TEAMVIEWER

Plat­form: An­droid/iOS Price: Free

There might be sit­u­a­tions in which you need re­mote ac­cess to your of­fice PC and TeamViewer can help with that. In­stall the app and you’ll have re­mote ac­cess to your PC, so you can ac­cess all your files or work to­gether with a col­league. You can cut and paste files from the host com­puter to the client com­puter, or vice-versa, mak­ing file trans­fer much eas­ier.

CLOUDON Plat­form:

An­droid/iOS Price: Free

Need to work on the go? Grab the free CloudOn app on any iPad or An­droid tablet and you can start edit­ing Mi­crosoft Word, Ex­cel and Pow­erPoint files. You can also open documents saved on pop­u­lar on­line file-stor­age ser­vices, so there’s no ex­cuse for not get­ting work done even if you’re not at your desk (eek).

CAMCARD Plat­form:

An­droid/iOS Price: Free

If your job re­quires con­stant ex­change of name cards, then a name card scan­ner such as CamCard will make or­ga­niz­ing and search­ing for busi­ness con­tacts eas­ier and quicker. The app’s text recog­ni­tion will min­i­mize the amount of de­tails you have to en­ter, and you can upload the scanned cards to an on­line ac­count.
