Black Friday Deals on Essential Apps

It’s that time of year again where discounts abound and consumers go into a buying frenzy. Below are a few deals I caught for applications and software that I use on a daily basis to be productive in the field.

 

30% off PDF Expert by Readdle [iTunes link] $6.99 – My #1 iPad app for organizing, editing, and annotating PDFs and other documents. It integrates with Dropbox and is extremely useful if you need to make edits to a PDF.

30% off PDF Converter by Readdle [iTunes link] $4.99 – Another iPad app I use if I have a need to convert excel documents or word documents to PDF to make sharing and e-mailing those documents easier. In the past I’ve had to wait until I’m at my computer to convert files into PDFs but now I can do it from the road.

30% off Scanner Pro by Readdle [iTunes link] $4.99 – Have you ever found yourself in a store and wished you could scan a document to PDF right there in the store? Now you can using your iphone’s camera. Take a photo with the software and it will automatically align, optimize, and convert the image to a PDF. Truly a great app. Great for when you need to e-mail a copy of a physical document but you have no way to scan it and don’t want to look lame by sending a photo of it.

50% off 1Password by AgileBits [App Store link] [Windows Users link] $24.99 – This is probably one of my favorite apps of all-time. It’s the first thing I install on every new computer. Using the same dopey six-letter password (“123456” anyone?) for all your online accounts is an increasingly foolhardy habit in today’s hacker-infiltrated world. A better option is to buy you and your loved ones peace of mind with a password system. I’ve spoken to so many people who have to spend 10 minutes trying to figure out their username and password every time they are presented with a log-in screen. Make it easy with 1Password.

50% off 1Password Pro for iPhone/iPad by AgileBits [iTunes link] $6.99 – The iphone/ipad version of 1Password. Syncs with the desktop version so you always have your passwords and other info at-hand if you need it.

30% off Bento by Apple [App Store link] $33.99 – A great personal database program that I have used to track customer/store data. Plenty of great templates for sales reps are built-in or can be downloaded off their site.

 

Get on these as soon as you can. The Readdle apps are on sale through Saturday I believe and 1Password is on sale through Wednesday, Nov 30th.

Happy Thanksgiving!
