    What have you got on you phone you are finding useful?

    Most of us have the usual suspects, all the messenger apps, Facebook, Whats App etc but what do you recommend that you reckon improves you day to day running?

    Ones I find real useful are:

    Cleaner Planer - to run my job sheets

    Waze - This is a great navigation app that shows all the back road routes that the local van boys use to avoid the gridlock.

    ACR (Another Call Recorder) - This is also real useful as it records all your calls and lets you store in various folders etc, very handy for collecting information from a customer when you haven't got a pen and paper to hand.

    Like the sound of ACR.....BUT I get every customer to text me their first name and address stating that I am eithe in the middle of a clean or got hands full with the kids which to be fair is quite often.

    Find it easier to copy and paste and just make sure I've got right details.

    Only exception is of the done use a mobile.

    IMO having used three different round organizing programs (George, Round Partner and Cleaner Planer) Cleaner Planer is in a league of its own. Others will defend what they use, George, RP, Aworka etc but if you are after something that evolves, and can be modified to suit you to a T with w developer that listens to you and helps integrate features you may like to see then it's Cleaner Planner.

    I use receipt bank- you take photos through app of every receipt fuel clothing etc it processes info for you. You can sync this with kashflow the system I use too keep track of customers or you can just open up data it collects through an excel spreadsheet

    I have the CH app too, not much use really but good at looking up commercials to see how much I can get away with pricing :)
    Hopefully mine will state cash at bank £0 come Sept :)
