“Smartphone, an Indispensable Tool”
Many times when we are out of our home or office and have to send an e-mail or do any task you may feel desperate for not possessing the right tools for the job, but when we use our portable devices with adequate up to date software and to carry out what we need to have a more comfortable and effective life. In general, mobile devices have many functions that help us to have access to tools on the go, which also are becoming better today, having office tools, quick Internet access, and a whole multimedia library into a single device, mediated with an operating system with the necessary capabilities to perform the required tasks, this is why Smartphone are not a luxury item but a necessary tool for modern life.

Everybody has busy lives and at the same time they have multiples duties at once for different reasons, such as people attend school and they get a bunch of homework or they have to develop some office project. The Mobile phone operation system counts with the office tools, which help to realize the duty in question while waiting to be called at the hospital waiting room or may be while traveling to certain point. For example, the Windows Phone 7 operating system has the Office Mobile tool in which Word documents can be created in a similar way as in a computer, but without having to be in front of a voluminous device. As Kurt Schiller says in his article about mobile office: Not long ago, people spoke of the mobile office when referring to lap-top-toting executives who kept tabs on the home office from hotel rooms and Internet cafes. But since the advent of smartphones, the term is taking on a whole new meaning. Today's mobile office could be on a train, in a conference hall, or even on a street corner. Users can access key documents via a Smartphoneor tablet and stay in the loop, as long as they have the right software(Schiller par. 3).

Business' users often need to work using excel or word documents to keep control over their numbers or information that need to be modified on the go, they will always need the Office application in their mobile operating system. In addition, Office applications are the strongest to date to the limited capacities of a cell phone. However, the spelling tool in Word is not included. To have a more organized life people often opt to follow an agenda, which is used to program appointments or important events in user’s life? They should not be carrying a mobile device and an agenda when they can have them in one single item. Following this further, most of the mobile operating systems count with this useful tool for time managing, and the operating system connects the schedule date with the phone alarm, which helps to never forget an important date and that is what makes the mobile agenda more helpful to the users.

Often it was common hearing people's complaints about these kinds of programs that had frequently option limitations and the inconvenient of operating them using a keyboard with small keys from the mobile device. In the other hand, competition between large companies that develop software of this type cause programs in these mobile operating systems become more efficient and most actualized tools, as Simon Mackie from the website Gigaom says, “If Microsoft is planning on bringing Office to multiple mobile platforms, it offers the tantalizing prospect of being able to seamlessly access your Office documents no matter where you are — on the desktop (using Office 2010), in the cloud (using Office Web Apps) and on all your mobile devices (using Office Mobile). It will likely also offer very stern competition for the existing multiplatform mobile office apps, like Documents To Go.” It is clear the improvements that are made to these kinds of programs for these mobile devices, which are in much more fair competition, driving them to create better options.
