Whether you are a business woman or a mom with an intensive playdate date calendar, then trying to stay networked is always helpful to keep organized and connected. Here's 5 apps that are helpful for any one with a smartphone to use. Some of you may have already heard of Bump, which was featured in an Apple commercial, but there's more where that comes from. 

 

Bump: Use Bump™ to share contact information and photos by simply bumping two phones together. Feel free to bump contacts at networking events and even in the workplace. Who's to say that fleeting connections won't materialize into bigger and better prospects down the line?

 

Friendthem: A revolutionary location-based connectivity app, with fine-grained and easily-configured privacy controls, which is changing the way the world connects in a seamless and fun manner by helping them send Facebook friend requests to people they meet in the real world. A great tool for connecting with people you meet along the way and creating long term relationships. 

 

MeetMe: An app designed to help people meet in the middle. You input two locations (or use your current location and input your colleague’s address) and it locates suitable venues in the middle. The search can be narrowed down by type of venue, and you can store contacts and venues in your favorites for future use. From there, you can email directions to yourself and your colleague. The only thing left to do is meet up and have a good time.

 

ScanBizCards: For those people who are attached to their business cards, this handy app scans your businesses cards and automatically translates the information to a digital contact, letting you edit the information and add more. 

 

Which one is your favorite?
