If you're like me, you unwrapped a new mobile phone this holiday season. While it doesn't come with that new car smell, it does deliver crisp, clear photos and videos, crazy customization options and some darn good bass.
But the reality of a phone these days — regardless of the built-in bells and whistles — is that what you get out of it depends on what you, well, install. Personally, I like my phone supercharged with apps, ready to MacGyver my way through any communications conundrum or miscellaneous tough spot. As they say, “There's an app for that.”

As Broida continues, one major way to trick out your phone and boost productivity is by adding conference calling power. “Fire up the FreeConferenceCall.com app… it’s free and available for both Android and iOS.”
