My relationship with technology is like my relationship with my car. I know how to drive it, but I have no interest in learning how to change the oil. In other words, as long as I have the basic functions on my computer and phone, I don’t want to know how anything else works. Yet, as a recent iPhone convert, I learn something new that can be done with the iPhone every day. Stream movies? Check. Listen to music? Check. Take pictures, surf the web, check email? Check, check and of course, check. But, did you your phone can be used to clear your clutter and get more organized? Here are some of my top iPhone app suggestions that can help with your time management skills and efficiency:
- Organizer – For all you multi-taskers out there, this is a three-in-one wonder app that includes To Do’s, Calendars, and Lists, so all your organizational tools are located in one convenient place. Cost: $1.99
- Grocery IQ – Forget jotting down milk, eggs, bread and your other grocery items on just any old scrap of paper lying around. With this app, you can keep your list in one place, and even sync it with your family members’ phones to coordinate grocery shopping for the ultimate efficient supermarket trip. Cost: FREE
- Bill Minder – Keeping track of which bills are due when won’t be such a headache anymore with this app. You can organize bills by amount, due date or by recording your payment submission. This app features both a calendar and list view so you can clearly see what’s past due. You can even set up a reminder to be sure you don’t miss a payment. Cost: $1.99
- Things – Keep track of literally everything you have to do today, tomorrow and in the future so you can efficiently prioritize. Set due dates and create tags to filter to-do’s by “home,” “errands,” or “work” with this incredibly useful organizational app. The Things app also lets you create long-term projects, broken down into easy-to-manage tasks. A handy logbook keeps you posted on all the tasks you’ve already accomplished. Cost: $9.99
- White Pages – Need to find a restaurant, store, or even your friend’s new address? Simply type in the name of the person or place of business, search, and voila! The listing appears along with the distance from where you currently are. But, that’s not all. With a tap of another button, you can get a map and directions, add the business to contacts, or share the listing. Pretty amazing and FREE!
