Square (iOS, Android) is an app for on-the-go credit card transactions. Once you sign up for the app, Square will send you a free credit card reader to plug into your phone. All you have to do is set it up, and you are good to accept credit card payments everywhere. Square will even email receipts to buyers and only charges sellers 2.75 percent per transaction, which will help your company

save money. The app has seen a jump in popularity since it has been used by presidential campaigns to gather donations on the campaign trail.

Share-a-bill (iOS) can be a great way to keep up with expenses, both business and personal. With the app, which has a free and paid version, you can keep a running tally of payments and easily split up costs between personal or business, or among various people on a trip or meal at either even splits or with different weights for each participant. The free version lets you keep up with four transactions, while the full version is unlimited.
