Appsolute Must: Apps for Business
Starting this week, we're going to show you some of the hottest apps out there. Today's apps will save you time and money. 7's Craig Stevens shows us this week's "APPsolute Must" downloads.
WSVN -- Filing with Uncle Sam doesn't have to be quite as taxing this year. Just use the "Turbo Tax: Snap Tax" app.
If you're filing a 1040EZ form, doing your taxes can be, well, a snap.
Take a picture of your W-2. The info imports directly to your phone. Answer a few questions, review, e-file, and your refund is on the way.
The app is free, but you have to pay $15 to file with the government.
Another bit of business: Square is making life easier for the self-employed.
Leeor Geva fixes computers. When the job is done, he swipes his client's credit card over the Square card reader that plugs right into his iPhone.
Leeor Geva, Likes Square App: "I fix their computer, I can charge their credit card right then and there, get the money in my bank account the next day."
Instant payment is love at first swipe.
One thing we all hate: high gas prices. But now, there's an app to help you find the best prices.
GasBuddy tells you how much you'll pay for gas at various stations near you.
No more burning fuel looking for the cheap gas.
Craig Stevens: "The GasBuddy download is also free."
