With more business-oriented applications become available, I was curious to know which apps my fellow PR professionals use on a daily basis and can’t live without. So, I reached to colleagues and sent a query through Help A Reporter Out (HARO).

Most of these applications are multi-platform with Android and iPhone, I have listed which are iPad only.
