Today I bring you another little gem on how you , as a mobile business person can use your iPhone as an office as you move, as part of this weeks series looking into technology.
One the key apps I have used over the years to work from anywhere and which helps me deliver my documents professionally, sign documents on the move, review documents as I go, send documents in a secure format or mix and match information from different documents, is the mobile version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Now I do enjoy Adobe Acrobat Reader on the PC but I have found that the functionality of Adobe Acrobat Reader on the PC is limited. In order to get some of the same functionality offered in the mobile version on the PC I have to add Adobe Acrobat Pro and not just stick with the Reader. Now, I may be wrong on this, if so feel free to correct me.
Back to the subject at hand. So the mobile Adobe Acrobat Reader is a lovely must have tool for the mobile business user and in today’s video i show you how to install and use it. I also run through some of the basic features I like, but it does have a few more that you should try yourself.
On a more serious note, we are looking at the Apple iPhone this week as an office for Mobile Business Users. We started on Monday and if you missed the first two episodes or posts please check the links below.
Today we are looking at scanning a document with Apple iPhone Notes.
I didn’t know till I found it in the app by accident that this nifty little feature was on the iPhone. It is, but it is well hidden. Before I found this feature I had tried both paid and unpaid scanning apps. Some were okay, others were downright awful. This one is effective, easy to use and does what it’s supposed to do. It allows you to scan one page or many pages, without complexity, into one document. It auto detects the document to be scanned , but it also allows you to manually change the area detected if it is wrong. The crowning beauty of this app is the document can be shared by email, to other apps or stored as a pdf. I think it’s pretty cool. Check it out for yourself in the video below and let me know what you think.
It should help you to scan any document whilst you are on the move and get it where it needs to be pronto.
It’s Apple iPhone time. Now i have to admit that this is not the actual post i meant to post for today but i had to do this. I wanted to make sure you keep up with any changes in relation to the Apple iPhone as that is what this weeks series is all about.
Normally, please don’t tell Apple, I normally resist doing the latest upgrade to the next version of the iOS, until I am left with no choice. Apple has a way of getting you to that no choice position, as I am sure you have also found. Discussing the particular issue of being given no choice but to upgrade by mobile phone software companies, is a discussion for another day.
Throughout the week we are looking at the Apple iPhone and how it can be used as an office for professional mobile workers, which literally means everybody who owns an iPhone.
We are looking at the mail app today, just a simple little feature on the mail app that many of us probably need to use on a regular basis. When I first got given this phone and I had to attach a file I found many ways through other apps and the Apple iPhone sharing feature to attach documents and other files to email.

This is Whyjay from Slingshot and i am here today to talk about the Apple iPhone.
Now, recently i have been given an iPhone and to be honest with you, before now i would not have said I was a particular fan of Apple iPhone. Now its not because i didnt like them or anything i just felt they were too, probably too simple. The geek in me thinking that all you do is just press. However now i have been given one, i have been road testing it and its okay. Its pretty okay.
