Small business owners share the 6 apps they love using on the job, including ProPrompter, an ingenious teleprompter app that’s great if you’re creating scripted videos for your marketing efforts.

Though it has its detractors, Google Glass has a few apps that would be perfect for small-business owners, writes OPEN Forum contributor Barry Moltz.

A common question many startup founders and small-business owners without office space find themselves asking is, “Where do I go for meetings with potential clients?”

Two new apps may just be the answer. There’s PeerSpace, which lets people use extra spaces rested out by other small business owners, and Breather, a website and iOS app that promises to provide access to clean, safe and beautiful rooms that users can rent by the hour or for the day. The spaces are outfitted with WiFi and seating, and your phone acts as the door to unlock your reserved space. (Right now the service is limited to New York City and Montreal, but the site’s FAQ hints at the possibility of expansion.)

Would you use either of these services?

Start here: the best apps for all your new devices
Christmas morning is over. The fire is roaring with wrapping paper, broken candy cane pieces litter the phone, and you’ve just opened a brand-new gadget.

From Game On: How European Apps Outplay U.S. Startups:

Being able to create successful apps without a VC crutch and with a cheaper, better educated team is one way European gaming companies have bested American-based ones. Another way is far more strategic. While just 43.3 million people played on a gaming console at least once a month in the U.S. this year, 126 million gamed from their phones in 2013, reports research firm eMarkerter. And tablets are an increasingly popular form of entertainment, with more than a third of Americans owning a tablet, according to Pew Research Center.
