118 Best iPhone Apps Ever
Top 12 Organisation Apps
We all want to get ahead of the competition. And with hectic lives, comes multi-tasking to project managing, and you’ve guessed it…there are apps to help you with all of it. I love to be organised, and often have several things to do, so I’ve tried all of these apps, and these are my top 5 recommendations for getting on top of your projects.
This Berlin based company has created one of the best organisational apps on the market. It has a 4.5 out of 5 star rating on the App Store, and enables all sorts of benefits including syncing across all of your devices letting you keep on top of your “to-do” list regardless of where you are. You can set reminders and make deadlines for all tasks, and check the task off the list when done. You can share lists with friends and colleagues, it’s really easy to use. The basic app is free, but if you need more control, you can upgrade to a paying version. It’s Wunderful.
Hop is a free app that helps you keep on top of several emails. Like messenger, you can see when someone is replying to you and choose what you want to be notified of – i.e what’s most important to you. It works across iCloud, Gmail, AOL and Yahoo.
Similarly to Wunderlist, Evernote syncs across all your devices keeping your task manager up to date. The app has great search capabilities, strong organisational design and is completely free. You can even leave audio notes for yourself.
Asana is both a simple task manager and a detailed project management tool. As with Evernote and Wunderlist, you can manage tasks and subtasks, and assign tasks to other users. One of the best features of Asana is that you can categorise projects, mark milestones and overview project progress like with more sophisticated project management software. You can even get support for up to 5 users on a free account!
If you want a simple task manager, go with one of the above options. However, if you’re needing to overhaul your to do list, and actually get everything done. You can create projects with a separate task list for each. It’s for seriously busy people, and it’s seriously brilliant.
It’s got a version for iPhone, iPad and Mac, and uses Things Cloud to sync and save your projects across all devices. It’s way more professional, but it does cost $49.99. But well worth it if you have a lot of projects to keep on top of.
Do you want to make completing your ‘To Do’ list into an awesomely fun game? Then this is the app for you. It gives you so much more of a sense of accomplishment when you’re done. I love this app. It gives you that pat on the back you’re looking for when you finally cross off everything you had to do.
This free app comes as standard with your iPhone. It is a fantastic app, so make sure you set it up when you activate your phone. To do this, go to Settings>iCloudFind My iPhone and make sure it’s switched on. That way if you lose your phone (or it’s stolen) you will be able to trace exactly where it is, as long as it has 3G signal or Wi-Fi.
Cloze describes itself as a relationship management app. It gives you the ability to combine your email, Twitter and Facebook feeds (amongst others)of the people you really want to keep up to date with, and puts all their news into one feed. Great for stalkers! And completely free!
This app costs £0.99 but is amazing. You can convert anything into anything. If you want to know your weight in kg instead of lbs, this is the app for you. If you want to convert currencies, this is the app you want. If you want to convert pints to litres, miles to kilometres…it’s just awesome!
This completely free app doesn’t even need you to have an internet connection when searching for words. It’s a great app when you want to find the perfect word for a writing piece, or if you just want to sound clever.
This free app is a task manager like no other – you set yourself a task and a time limit, and the timer starts. A great idea for keeping on top of your tasks. Gives you something to work with.
LastPass is a password management app which is extremely secure and as long as you remember your LastPass password, it will remember all your other passwords for you. Password management is becoming more and more complex in this hacker-wary world we live in. You shouldn’t use the same password for everything. And you shouldn’t store all your passwords anywhere accessible online. So the safest way to do it is to utilise a secure password manager, and LastPass is the best one I know.
