Quickbooks Online, the No.1 small business cloud computing solution, has updated their Quickbook Online app. The app is now optimized for Android tablet. The new update is available from Google Play for Quickbook Online subscribers for free.
QuickBooks Mobile offers Android tablet users the same functionality provided to Android phone users, but with a native tablet experience. The app serves a burgeoning market of small businesses that want to accomplish more work on mobile devices. Industry analysts say the trend is on the fast track, with Android claiming a significant share:
32.5 percent of small businesses currently own tablets, and 31.6 percent plan to purchase tablets in the next 12 months, according to an IDC report published in October.
31.9 percent of small businesses purchased or planned to purchase tablets in 2012 to substitute laptops, according to an iGR study released in March.
The number of global tablet and smartphone users will surpass the number of PC users by July 2013, based on projections from KPCB partner Mary Meeker in a November presentation. She also noted that Android adoption is growing six times faster than that of iPhones.
