I tend to kill the battery on my iPhone at least once a day (thank goodness for this case) – and it’s usually because I’m using at least a few of these apps at the same time. Here’s are my go-to apps for staying organized and productive.
TeuxDeux – I have Grace to thank for getting me hooked on this amazing tool to maintain my to-do lists. It’s clean, easy to use, and I have it open on all my devices at any given time. I’m forever adding new items, crossing off completed items, and re-shuffling the items on the list. It’s a fantastic app – I highly recommend it to everyone.
WorkFlowy – TeuxDeux contains what I need to do on a given day and week – WorkFlowy has everything I need to do, for everything in life. I tend to write out long, rambling lists when starting a new venture, and WorkFlowy is a fantastic tool to write out all the tasks. I also love that I can share it with others, and minimize main activity groups. While there’s no iOS or Android app for WorkFlowy, I have the website saved to my “Productivity” folder on my iPhone/iPad and it works like a charm.
Evernote – The first app I download when I have a new device, hands down. I use Evernote for EVERYTHING – recipes, blog post ideas and drafts, business documents, meeting notes. If I’m not on TeuxDeux updating my to-do list, I’m typing away on Evernote on any given document.
Easy Sign Mobile – Given that I’m on the road a LOT, it makes it hard to print and sign off on documents. However, EasySign is my savior – I can sign and date any document, anywhere. The only downside is that I now seem to have even more documents to sign off on now.
TaskRabbit – I don’t know what I did before discovering TaskRabbit. All those chores/errands I never seem to have time to run are now taken care of by competent, professional, nice people for a reasonable fee. Mailing packages? TaskRabbit it. Dropping off items to Goodwill? TaskRabbit it. Picking up the most random of items when I’m en route to a meeting? TaskRabbit it. I’ve even had them wash my dishes once – but in my defense, my husband and I were both out of town, and I was paranoid that some of the soaked items would start to rust. I may need TaskRabbit rehab.
WorldCard Mobile - I’m usually the one recommending apps to my brother and father, but big bro told me about this one. WorldCard snaps a photo of a business card and creates a new contact in your phone – which is a lifesaver when you have a stack of hundreds of business cards and fingers too tired to type each contact individually. During one of my two flights today, I quickly input a thick stack of cards (while watching a Real Housewives of NJ episode, no less). Thanks bro!
Which apps help keep you organized and productive? Please share – I’m always on the hunt for new ones.
