Poll results: What’s the most useful Windows Phone business app?

A couple of weeks ago we asked you to vote for your most useful Windows Phone business app. Hundreds of you answered the call and now the results are in!

You only have to spend a few minutes in the Windows Phone Store to discover that the place is awash with apps, which can transform the way you work, both on an individual and corporate level. But, which of these many options are the ones you find most beneficial? Earlier this month, we asked you this question. Now we’ve tallied up the votes and the results are in. So, starting in reverse order, here are your fab five must-have business apps.

Cisco WebEx Meetings – 5th place –  (3.69%)

If you make use of web conferences in your business life, then we recommend this app: it’s packed with features optimized for both meeting attendees (view shared content, view other attendees, automatic callback) and hosts (schedule, start and manage meetings, expel attendees, share host duties with others). It’s a free app from a company very experienced in developing similar products.


Lync 2010 – 4th place –  (9.59%)


Lync is an integrated Windows messaging service: it will tell you whether or not your colleagues are online, and it can be used for pain-free conference calling by eliminating long, awkward passcodes or numbers. You’ll need to ensure that your workplace runs a Lync server, or that it’s signed up to an Office365/Lync Online account, but as long as the infrastructure is in place, it’s a great way to smooth out intra-office communications.

TeamViewer – 3rd place –  (12.92%)

This is a fantastic tool for mobile workers: it gives you remote access both to your computers and to those of your co-workers (as long as they use the service too, of course. You’ll be able to switch on your computer and make changes – such as, for instance, upload files to the Cloud so you can the access them on your WP or another device. It’s compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux, so it works for all users.


Evernote – 2nd place –  (14.39%)

A useful note-taking tool, for business and personal use alike, this syncs with the cloud so you’ll never lose your data. Use it to make notes and create to-do lists, and to organize your notes with custom tags and in user-defined notebooks. It lets you search inside notes and share them with others, too.



OneDrive – 1st place –  (46.13%)




And here are the results in full.

So, as you can see a pretty resounding victory for OneDrive. Needless to say, we’re super happy to hear you’re loving it as much as us, but we’re still somewhat surprised by the scale of the victory. But, what about you?  Did you expect OneDrive to romp home in such fine style? Let us know down below.
