Apple adds page highlighting iPhone apps for business users

Apple has added a new page of iPhone app suggestions for business users. The page, titled iPhone at Work, lists apps broken down into five major categories: organize your day, view your business, manage projects, meet anywhere, and travel light. Each of those sections is further divided to show off the ways that the iOS apps Apple bundles with the iPhone and third-party apps can be used in business.

The page highlights these built-in iOS apps: Mail, Calendar, Contacts, Reminders, iMessage, Notes, Camera and Maps. Pages is the only app that doesn’t ship with the iPhone that Apple highlights.

The remaining apps are a range of third-party offerings, some of which are clearly business-oriented like Salesforce Mobile, Market Circle’s excellent Daylite Touch, and the expense report management tools BizXpense Tracker and Expensify.

Others are more general apps, which Apple highlights as being useful for business like iTranslate+ and Kayak for business travel, Dragon Dictation, Dropbox and to-do manager Things.

The page, which joins Apple’s existing iPhone in Business – Apps For iPhone page, even includes several Quick Tip videos illustrating what the apps can do.

If you’re curious about how to integrate the iPhone into your work day (or want to add to the business functionality that you already use), Apple’s new page makes a great starting point.

In addition to showcasing apps, the page actually highlights more extensive enterprise technologies like business and enterprise social networks Yammer and Jive, the Basecamp project management tool and related suites from 37 Signals, and the virtual meeting solutions Webex from Cisco and Citrix’s GoToMeeting.
