One of the coolest work related apps around is Jump which will work on the iPhone, the iPad and on any Android smartphone such as the Galaxy SIII. The app allows you to access your computer and apps from a remote location, which means that you can work from anywhere; you simply control your computer from your smartphone or tablet. It uses RDP (remote desktop protocol) and VNC (virtual network computing) and it is very secure and it can be set up automatically. You connect to your computer through a host name or IP address and it makes use of all the multi-touch, pinch zoom and other powerful facilities of your mobile device. There is a free version which allows you to connect to a single computer, and a paid version that allows you to connect to as many computers as you wish.
Businesses are also creating their own apps for customers to browse their range of services and products. These apps are also free and can be found on the iTunes store, such as the motors.co.uk app.
