Best Android Apps for Office Use and Photo Editing

Mobile apps aren’t just for online games anymore. The app store include both free and for-payment apps that allow businessmen and women to complete office tasks from their mobile device.

Some of the best office apps for Android include:

Files Go by Google

The Files Go by Google is a great utility app that allows you to locate files and place them on the Cloud, freeing up space on your smartphone or tablet. The Files Go app was just recently updated to give it even more capacity to make it easier to complete office tasks when you’re not in the office.

You can now search for files on your phone similarly to the way that you would on the internet. The app stores your search history and can often autocomplete results when you tap the search icon that’s located under the Files tab. You can also complete these tasks offline.

Files Go can show you where duplicate files are located. Long press on the thumbnail when the app suggests duplicates to remove to see where the file is located on your phone before you choose to delete it.

Files Go now works with Google Photos and will detect backed up photos so you can delete them and free up more space.

Android Device Manager/Find My Device

What’s the first thing that you think when you lose your phone? If you’re like most people, you worry about the data that’s on the phone, your open apps (bank, email, social media, etc) and other private information.

The Android device manager allows you to track your phone. If you don’t find the phone you can remotely erase the data that’s on the phone and reset the screen lock PIN. The device manager works with any device that is associated with your Google account.

You can use Find My device if your phone is turned on, connected to WiFi or mobile data,  visible on Google Play and have both “Location” and “My Device” turned on.

Quickbooks is available for mobile use so you can track and manage your finances while working on mobile. The Android app is a mobile companion app to the fully-featured QuickBooks desktop application – you can’t do all accounting tasks on the mobile app that you can do on the desktop but you can accomplish the main tasks — track sales, send out invoices and review recent payments. There’s a free 30 day trial available – after that there’s a subscription cost.

Business Calendar

Business Calendar makes it easy to keep to your schedule by dragging your finger over multiple days so you can narrow the view to include only that time period.

With the mobile-enabled Salesforce app businesspeople can run their business from any mobile device.

Adobe Scan

With Adobe Scan you don’t need to rely on your phone’s camera to take photos of documents that you want to save. You just take a photo of the document and the app will take care of the rest, resulting in a professional cropped and scanned document.

Google Drive
