Free online tools and apps that make your life easier and (just a little more) organized.
Trello gives you perspective over all your projects, at work and at home. Whether it’s managing a team, posting on a blog, or just making a grocery list, Trello is your sidekick for getting things done and staying organized. A Trello board is a list of lists, filled with cards, used by you and your team. It’s a lot more than that, though. Trello has everything you need to organize projects of any size. Open a card and you can add comments, upload file attachments, create checklists, add labels and due dates, and more.
2. Be Focused
The Be Focused app lets you get things done by breaking up individual tasks among discrete intervals, separated by short breaks. It’s a surprisingly effective way to retain motivation and focus, and track your progress throughout the day week, and month on all of your devices.
This is a dream come true if your inbox is overflowing with subscriptions, deals, adds, spam; things you may have purchased or subscribed to once that now is overwhelming to go through it all. Well, now theres an app for that! Unroll.Me scans your inbox to find how many subscriptions you have, then gives the option to either unsubscribe or consolidate them into a daily digest called a “Rollup” – in one swipe. All of that control, in the palm of your hand, with the swipe of a finger.
While browsing the web, the Pocket app gives you the opportunity to save any articles, videos, or links to check them out later. Whether you find something interesting on Safari, Facebook. Twitter, email; the links and clips will sync across all of your devices. As well, Pocket can customize your reading experience based on your style and personalize more content for you to discover. Add the “text-to-speech” feature will read the articles out loud to you like a podcast if you don’t have enough time!
I love this app – It gives me the personal assistant I’ve always wanted but never have had. 24me has a smart and automatic task handler that can do almost everything you’d want an assistant to do. Your to-do lists, personal accounts, calendar, and notes are all centralized in one place. Your day-to-day errands are completely all in one tap. You can receive billing, event, and birthday reminders, have the app pay your bills, and remind you to send gifts to your friends. The app will even tell you when you should leave to go to a meeting based on your current position and traffic.
