We were keen to know at GetApp which apps are very useful for your business in terms of increasing productivity, cost cutting, obtaining more clients, creating a happier team and so on. Therefore, we have asked the folks on Quora, what they believe are going to be the people's top cloud business apps for 2013. We would like to share a summary of the most mentioned apps organized by key categories with you.
