The 2013 Readers' Choice Awards on About.com

The iPhone (or some kind of smartphone) is now a must-have business tool. Whether it's for staying in touch via email, getting information from the web, or using key business apps, the iPhone is now at the center of the mobile office. If you use apps to get business done on your iPhone, vote for the best business/productivity app here.

Clipboard makes it simple to save any content you find online to a single, searchable location. With this app, you can copy any content (from apps that support copying)--text, images, links, etc.--and then save them. There's a web version that will also contain your clipped items, and you can share your favorites privately through Clipboard or make them available to the whole world.

Thanks to DropBox, sharing files across devices--either your own or with other people--now requires practically no thinking, no management, and very little set up. Just sign up for a free Dropbox account (limited to 2GB, but paid upgrades get you more storage) and drag the files you want to share to the Dropbox folder. Just configure Dropbox on any other device--there are desktop and iOS apps, and you can access your account via the web--and your files will automatically stay in sync, including every change you make to them.

Easilydo is a bit more than a to-do list app; it's more like an app that helps you get things done. You add events, reminders, and to-dos and then the app presents them to you in a simple activity stream. You can even add neat reminders like "time to leave" so you can make sure to give yourself enough time to get where you're going or add phone numbers to events and have the app dial you into a call automatically.

Evernote makes collecting notes, research, recipes, or other kinds of information easy and accessible from virtually any computer or iOS device. With it, you can store text, photos, and audio in "notes," which are collected into notebooks and stored in your web-based account, which can be accessed through the native app or a web browser. An indispensible tool for many.

1. You can vote once per day in each category.

2. To prevent voting fraud and to ensure a fair contest, you must log in with an email address, Facebook account, or About.com account in order to vote. I am not saving these addresses and will not use them in any way other than to prevent vote fraud.

Winners will be announced March 27. There's no prize -- just the bragging rights that come with getting recognized by the readers of one of the biggest networks on the web.

Check back with iPhone/iPod at About.com on March 27 to see if your favorite iPhone/iPod accessory or app was nominated and to vote on the finalists. You can also visit our central awards page to learn about finalists in other categories.
