One of the reasons freelancers enjoy coworking is that it provides the opportunity to participate in a global community of like-minded professionals without being tied down to one office. Most coworking spaces offer a free or very affordable drop-in option. Still more participate in the Coworking Visa Program. This allows both prospective members and traveling coworkers to continue to be productive even when they are away from their home coworking spaces. Although you may feel right at home in coworking spaces around the world, it’s still a little awkward to be working out of your laptop bag.

Here are 10 of the most useful mobile apps for freelancers working on the go:

Remember The Milk: Remember The Milk reminds you to take care of important tasks, so you’ll never forget when a project is due.

Evernote takes capturing notes to a whole new level – allowing you to create a note from almost anything, in almost any medium, and then doing its best to index all of that media to help you search through notes fast in the future.

Dimewise: Use Dimewise’s web-based convenience to manage your business transactions wherever you are.

Air Mouse: This app instantly transforms your iPhone or iPod touch into an in air, wireless mouse for your computer! Sit back and surf the web, browse your photo library or control your music player from the comfort of your couch.

beamME is a free and universal electronic business card exchange application. beamME allows you do send your personal or business card from your iPhone to any other mobile device or computer, including BlackBerries, Android phones, Treos, Macs, PCs and more.

Dropbox allows you to save data in the cloud. With the app you can then access it at any time. Dropbox is the perfect place for important documents that you need to access and process from different devices. Large amounts of data, which take up too much space on the memory card of your smartphone, can be saved online without problems.

iTeleport: Sometimes you need to access your PC at home remotely. With a simple VNC connection over the iTeleport app, it is possible. This can be helpful when you need to access your server in order to activate a customer account remotely or because rendered graphics or videos need to be send via email.

XE: If you’re traveling or working with an overseas client, you may need to handle foreign currencies. Use XE’s currency converter for accurate calculations with up-to-the-minute currency rates.

Campfire is a web-based chat tool that’s ideal for online meetings with clients or coworkers.

Walking Tours: You’re not going to be working the entire time, are you? If you like to see new destinations on foot, but dislike the bulkiness of a guidebook, consider Tourcaster's audio walking tours (iPhone, prices vary by location, several free). Countries across six continents and the Caribbean are represented; each tour comes bundled with a virtual map for the selected city featuring numbered stopping points included on the walk.
