Best Apps for Staying Organized
Jul 01, 2019
There are so many apps for your smartphone, computer, and tablet that will help you stay in control of your life. Here are a few of the most recommended apps.
The Queen of organization and decluttering, Marie Kondon, inventor of the KonMari method, has an official app to help you stay on top of your tidying. Exclusively for iPhones, this app includes a supportive community, exclusive news, checklists and a progress dashboard. The checklists will help you track your progress as you tidy the five key categories of the KonMari method: clothing, books, papers, komono or miscellaneous, and sentimental items.
Future features include a connection to KonMarie Certified Consultants in your area to help and support you. http://konmari.com/products/app/
The Procrasterapp helps you outsmart yourself. Maybe you find yourself making lists you don’t use, or downloading organization apps that you don’t open, or intending to be more organized but never actually getting around to it. Procrasterapp is the app for you! You can choose from a menu of mindsets to let Procrasterapp know why you’re procrastinating (the task is too overwhelming, I don’t know where to start, etc.) and it will prompt you how to take the next step. And it has a timer, so you can allocate a specific amount of time for a task, add it to your calendar and then get on with it, with the clock ticking. The app will also build in a reward for completed tasks. http://procrasterapp.com/
If This, Then That (IFTTT) is a free app that allows all your apps and devices to talk to one another and synchronize with all your web services. With IFTTT you can post the same content across a number of social media platforms, track mentions in RSS feeds or send an email message if the user tweets using a specific hashtag. https://ifttt.com/
You can keep all your travel data in one place with the TripIt app. Boarding passes, tickets, itineraries, and accommodation reservations are all safely stored in your TripIt account. Link TripIt to your email and all your bookings and amendments will synchronize to your TripIt master itinerary which also includes directions, maps, and weather at your destination. TripIt will also send you reminders and alerts so you’ll always be on time and organized. https://www.tripit.com/learnmore#sm.0001pkldzns4nd0u10aj8eagz70px
