Are you using apps on the plant floor?

Social media and technology are everywhere. These days, our lives often are driven by what we read online, post on our walls and to our circles, or suggest to our cyberfriends to read and like. Tools such as Twitter and Facebook give us the opportunity to post anything. Foursquare lets us virtually check in from any real, physical location we visit. When it comes to industrial settings, having apps on or mobile devices or pads can be beneficial. They can save you time and money spent on fixing problems that could have been easily avoided if there were some helping technology in place. So far, the industrial apps available today that you can integrate into your machines don't offer the same social features that many other apps do, but these apps can offer solutions to your industrial problems. Are you currently using apps in your industrial settings? Let us know what these are and how beneficial and essential these have become to your job.
