  1. I think so apart from these apps there are certain other tools as well which contributes to the productivity aspects to come up in a preferred approach to meet the requirement. The tool which I have been using for the sort of hours tracking is the cloud based hours tracker from Replicon. You should consider adding this tool as well in the list.

  2. In the present times, a cell phone is a necessity for almost everyone- from housewives to school kids, from the aged people to the young people. If online businesses are not focusing on this aspect then they loose their chance to increase their reach of potential users. The above informative is really nice and informative.
