The business plan app has tutorials on how to write each section of a business plan, and answers some of the common business planning questions like how to choose a targe market, how to create a business model and a revenue model, and how to have an overall balanced business strategy.
The business plan app also lets you create a business plan right on the app.
Here is an article on how to write a business plan, and a service I offer as a business coach where I can help you create your business plan during one on one coaching via Skype. Most people who get the business idea app and the business plan app never actually end up starting their business.
But the marketing app users all need marketing because they already started their businesses and need to promote it.
I know it is a lofty statement to make, but here is why I believe these are the best apps to start a business.
First of all, these are proven apps with over 1,000,000 downloads and a rating of over 4 stars for all the apps.
You can later download the business plan or even invite friends to write the business plan with you, right on the app.

Read the reviews and find out why people love, and more importantly what they hate about the apps.
