These include Evernote, Google Drive, Toggl, Microsoft Remote Desktop, and Skype. These apps are available on Google Play Store.

Evernote makes it to two of the review lists we examined. It is an incredibly useful app that keeps the user well organized. How many times have you had a brilliant idea, or remembered a vital piece of information, yet had nowhere to record it? Evernote provides an excellent platform, particularly for entrepreneurs and creative types who need to store information and ideas. The app will store notes, clip web articles and online content, save files and images, chat with co-workers about projects, and record audio. Sync with your PC or laptop and use on almost any device imaginable. This app is a must-have for any active, mobile employee.
Another tremendously useful app from Google. Use it to access and share files across the internet. Coupled with its ability to create documents in Google Sheets, Google Docs, and Google Slides, the user has a powerful tool. Throw in its 15GB of free cloud storage and it is hard to beat. Sign up for a business account and potentially have unlimited storage. Google Drive is a fantastic tool for those on the go or collaborating with workers around the globe.
Free for up to 5 users with options to expand the number of users with upgrades, Toggl is an excellent time-management tool. It will track the time that you and your team members spend on specific projects, helping you to determine project costs and assess where you are spending too much time. With the business level app, you get a complete management tool for unlimited team members with all the lower level features and also tracking reminders, time audits, locking reports, all in one app! Along with Google Drive, Skype, and Microsoft Remote Desktop, this app makes the Business News Daily's Top Ten Android Apps for Business list.
For all those who are committed Microsoft users, the remote desktop app is a free and incredibly useful and powerful app. This app is a reliable, stable, and secure way to use your Microsoft apps on the go. By configuring your PC or laptop for remote access you can connect to and work with your projects and files from almost anywhere in the world. The connections to your data and applications are secure through your "Remote Desktop Gateway." Obviously, this makes it a leading tool in office use.

Although it has been around for a few years now, it is hard to beat Skype for communicating with employees and clients alike. This video conferencing app allows you to communicate directly, and visually, with other users by using the front facing camera on your mobile phone. Download the app for free, then use it when needed. Apply skype credits for those phone calls that require it and call free when possible. If you are away from the office there is no better way to get involved in a staff meeting from a distance.
