Here are 25 go-to iOS apps for business users, from travel planning to document editing using Microsoft Office tools to time tracking to getting a good night's sleep.

HootSuite for Twitter Free. Current version average rating: 4.5 stars Designed for iPhone, iPad

HootSuite for Twitter

Are you tweeting regularly for business? On LinkedIn? Facebook? If so, you need one easy-to-use dashboard app to manage all your social channels on the go, and the best one I've seen is HootSuite for Twitter. Despite its name, this app makes it easy to post one status update simultaneously to Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Foursquare. Scheduled updates enable you to write posts on the weekend and automatically send them during the week. The free version limits you to managing up to four social media profiles, but a paid account ($6 monthly) gives you unlimited social profiles, Google Analytics and Facebook Insights integration, and more.
