Business Motivation Quotes

Business Motivation Quotes is a simple app that will provide perspective in the business world through famous sayings by the pioneers before us.  Upon opening the app, you are presented with an inspirational quote, as well as the option to either share it with any of your contacts, or to read the next quote.  One of my favorite quotes from the large sized library is, “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power” – Abraham Lincoln.  Honest Abe still has it right.  Through clever quotes like that, Business Motivation Quotes will encourage you to constantly evaluate your perspective, which we all know is always good for business.  Business Motivation Quotes is a great app and will go well with your morning coffee.


Newspapers is exactly what the name indicates…newspapers.  Through this app, you will have access to 101 newspapers at your ink-free fingertips.  This includes 66 from across the US, as well as some from Britain, France, and even Canada.  You can add the papers you read daily to your favorites section through the friendly user interface.  The amount of content that Newspapers delivers is amazing for a free app.  Download Newspapers if you want access to the world’s best newspapers from your phone, and do it quick before the developers realize they should be charging a subscription fee for such a fantastic app.

Google Goggles

For those of you who have not yet heard of Google Goggles, it is Google’s attempt to integrate what you see with what your phone can see.  By simply taking a picture of an item, Google will attempt to bring up all relative search terms.  For example, taking a picture of my computer’s Apple returned Apple’s homepage, a link to purchase their computers, and Macbook’s wikipedia page.  Google Goggles can also translate text from a few languages, which is pretty cool.

By taking a picture of a business card, the app will correctly read each piece of information and allow you to save said info to your contacts.  While Goggles does not work 100% of the time, the concept is sweet and definitely warrants a download.  Google is taking searching to the next level, and when progress is made, Goggles will be the rich man’s QR Code scanner.
