And the fun doesn’t stop there, this app allows you to fill out forms on the go as well as e-sign any PDF doc. Finally, you have to check out its easy scan functionality which can turn a picture of anything into a shareable PDF.
Keeping track of paper files, and especially small ones like business cards, can be a hassle.

All you have to do is snap a pic of a business card and the app keeps track of the information in a database like format. You can easily add notes, exchange e- cards, and access your contacts from anywhere!
There’s a good reason EverNote calls themselves “your second brain.” This app has is great for agents trying to remember a lot of different things at once when they are being pulled in a million different directions. It’s not just an app for taking notes but also offers a way to declutter and work smarter by creating notes with checklists, tables, links, and even audio-snips all in a searchable central location. Plus, it also has a helpful business version of the app for purchase that allows sharing and collaboration—great for working with your team or clients.

This app is designed to help you manage your property by giving insights into field conditions, soil maps, crop heat accumulation, yield threats, real-time futures prices, and more!
