Apps mainly do two things: They either distract us or keep us on track. If you're a busy entrepreneur or someone who works for one, it's best to stick to the latter kind, at least during working hours, especially if you want to be a productivity powerhouse.

Productivity apps can give you -- and, yes, your boss, too -- a leg up on putting your most organized, efficient professional foot forward.

Some are built to tame your inbox, while others streamline your to-dos or track your expenses. You can also use efficiency apps to sharpen your focus before a big meeting or to communicate with your coworkers under the radar (for strictly work-related conversations, right?). And then there's the type that bosses love the most, procrastination-preventing apps that whip you into action.
