While this app is primarily for hair salon owners, it can make the entire experience of getting your hair cut or styled better for you too. The MyChair app lets salon owners manage their business on an iPad: Stylists can book appointments, manage contact info for each customer and enter tips. Another helpful feature of the app lets hair salon owners send "thank-you" emails to customers. No one likes sitting in a hair salon and waiting, especially if the stylist is running behind. So if salon owners are more organized, there's a strong chance the whole hair cutting experience will be faster!
Managing a business is tough -- there are tons of moving parts. The iDispatcher Pro app aims to help users get organized when it comes to dealing with the minute details of their business. According to the app's page on the iTunes App Store, it "lets you build and track service calls, customer service histories, customer lists, equipment lists, parts, and invoices." Furthermore, the app does not use the Web -- any data you input is held only on the app itself. And once you buy the app, you have access to it for life without additional fees or subscriptions. If your business deals heavily with invoices, you can email them as a PDF directly from the app, which cuts out the step of having to go back to the office computer and print/scan the signed invoices!
