With everything that needs to get done in a day, who wouldn’t want to learn about a few apps to make your life easier? Keep reading for five free ones that you can install today that will have you more productive and organized in record time.
Not only is Any.do one of the cleanest and most attractive mobile and web apps that we’ve seen in a while, it is also our app of choice for creating and managing tasks with ease. New tasks can be created either by typing them in or dictating them using your phone’s mic. Then you can easily assign a reminder day & time, make the task one-time or repeating, attach notes, files, and photos to the task, or share it with others.
You know that friend that always knows the best place to go for anything and everything? Well, Yelp is like a million of those friends gathered in the same place at once. Whether you’re looking for a place to grab a late-night slice, buy flowers near your office, or get brunch on your next trip to San Francisco, Yelp has an exhaustive list of all of the options that are available to you. What makes Yelp great, though, are the people – tons of virtual ‘friends’ who’ve visited all of these businesses and provided detailed reviews, ratings, tips, and photos. Yelp also has added features for foodies – meaning that not only can you search for great restaurants, but you can also make reservations and order pickup or delivery right from the app. Talk about a timesaver.
Drive is an online storage service from Google, that provides a place to save and share documents, photos, and other files, and then sync them between your mobile device and your computer or tablet. Individual files or entire folders can be shared with others, making it easy for teams to view and work on documents at the same time. Drive also offers tools for editing documents, spreadsheets, and presentations right inside the app. Better yet, files can be downloaded for offline view – which means you’ll never have to worry about Wi-Fi when trying to access your important documents in a pinch.
Regardless of what your interests or your goals might be, Pinterest is the best place for collecting and saving the tips, tricks, and advice that will help bring you closer to them. On Pinterest, you can create subject-specific boards and ‘pin’ anything that you find online onto those boards for later use, including video. Think home decorating tips, advice on how to improve your resume, and quick and easy Thanksgiving recipes. With this well-organized online collection of super valuable information – available to you whenever you need it – you can’t help but to be more productive.
Long gone are the days of notebooks, notepads, and journals piled high on our desks. With Evernote, everything you’d ever want to say or remember can be kept conveniently within your Evernote ‘notebooks’. It’s as simple as starting a new note – using text, handwriting, file attachments, photo or video uploads, for example. You can highlight sections of text and create numbered and bulleted lists. You can also create notebooks, which work as easy, mini-filing systems for groups of related notes. Evernote allows users to upload up to 60MB of content each month for free. And like with all of the apps on this list, Evernote syncs flawlessly between your mobile device and your computer.
