Apps of the month (August 2011): Cisco Technical Support, Spiceworks, and more

In Scott Lowe's latest app roundup, he features five business-focused mobile applications: Cisco Technical Support, Spiceworks, Gantt Pro, Package Tracker Pro, and Invoice2go Lite.

Package Tracker Pro (available for Android)

Quick show of hands: How many of you have ordered an item and watched the delivery schedule like a hawk so that you knew exactly where that package was? With Package Tracker Pro (for $1.99 USD), you no longer need to sit in front of your computer to keep track of your deliveries. This app allows you to track packages from more than 20 different carriers all over the world. You can also choose to be notified when a package has been delivered.

There are a couple of figures below. In Figure H, you can see information about all of your deliveries in progress. Figure I shows how you can drill down into the details to discover, for example, who signed for your package and when, as well as a lot of other shipping information. Figure H
