Previously, most of the work was done manually, but after the introduction of computers, things have changed to a great extent. You could also do the same things on your mobile which you usually do on your computer. The computer is better for drafting purposes, but what if you have to get a drafted urgently and there’s no computer around you.

Getting things done on your mobile is a savior, especially at such situations. The WPS office works well in this category, especially when you are at some place where there are network issues because this app works offline too, but if you are in a good mobile network range, then it is suggested to use Google docs because your file will be saved in Google drive and that file you can access anywhere and from any other device whereas if you created by using WPS office, then that file can be accessed only through a mobile.

One can make use of cloud services from other apps like Microsoft, but for that purpose you need to create a Microsoft account but the majority of the people are already running a Gmail account, so Google doc is a perfect option.

For PDF’s, many people use apps specifically for opening PDF files like Adobe Acrobat Reader:  PDF viewer, but you can open PDF files using WPS office too. So instead of using multiple apps for different purpose, if you have one app having all the features, then you must go for that. CamScanner is the best option in this category, it scans in the document exactly as a scanner, as you just have to take a photo of the document, and your work is done. It has many other features. One important feature is that text recognition which can be very helpful for lawyers.

The email apps usually come in with any mobile you buy nowadays.

You have to do many things simultaneously and if you do not manage things properly, then you are screwed up.
