Business and technology have gone hand-in-hand since Neanderthals discovered how to make fire and tools. 30,000 Years and 3 decades since we were working on super heavy, green DOS-command prompting computers, we have reached to what seems to be unlimited power in our mobile devices. From anywhere in the world, we can reach into our pockets and access global knowledge via a hand-held device. The following list is 5 of the 10 best apps for managing your business and intelligence on-the-go.
DropBox is a free file storage and sharing service available for multiple mobile platforms: iPhone and iPad, Android, and Blackberry.

Best of all, the more you share DropBox, the more storage space you get to keep for yourself. Click here for more information
