Going on vacation for a little R & R is one thing, but when you’re traveling for business, that’s a horse of a different color. You will rely on your mobile phone to be in touch with business colleagues and clients, but you can also take advantage of your mobile as a tool in coordinating projects, managing deadlines or preparing a pitch for your newest business opportunities. Don’t lose important business while you’re in transit.  Instead, load the mobile that you use at home with a few high-powered apps and transform it into a business tool that will keep you at the top while you’re at home or on the road.

Get Rid of Roaming Charges While Traveling

Don’t make your clients jump through hoops trying to connect with you while on a business trip. Before you leave home, download Roamer, a free app that makes it cheap and easy for you to use your own mobile with your regular phone number while traveling. Instead of paying standard roaming charges when calling with your own mobile number, call with Roamer and save a bundle. After downloading the app to your mobile, register it with your regular mobile number – the one that your clients and colleagues are familiar with. Afterwards, whether you are using your mobile at home or abroad your calls will show the same ID.

With the Roamer app installed you will have a choice between using the Internet for your calls or sticking with a regular mobile network. While you can realize the greatest savings by making your calls over the Internet (Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G), you might prefer the reliability of a regular mobile network. If so, just insert a local SIM card into your mobile. Whether you are at home or away, you can use Roamer to save money on your international calls.
