iPad Apps To Keep You Organized
Do you miss appointments or struggle with staying organized? Is it difficult for you to complete your work on time? Thanks to the wonderful world of apps, you can stay structured and on top of everything! In this AppList, we will help you find the right set of apps to start your journey towards becoming more organized.
A wonderful app to assist you in remembering and organizing pretty much everything is Evernote. It is incredibly easy to use, which is helpful when you have a lot to do and keep track of. Whether it's making a grocery list or taking notes for your next big project at work, Evernote has you covered. You are able to do things like record your voice, make notes of your to-dos and appointments, or even plan your next vacation. With features such as syncing your notes between your devices and your computers, the ability to share files with others, and connectivity between Evernote to many other apps, you'll find yourself becoming more organized in no time.
Files are a very important thing to keep organized. Dropbox will ensure that files on which you are working on your computer will be easily accessed on another computer, or even your iDevices. You're able to take and share your photographs, videos, and documents anywhere with this amazing app. Sign up for a free account, which gives you 2 GB of storage space. When you add a file to your Dropbox account, it will instantaneously be pushed to all of your iDevices and computers for hassle-free access. This app is the essential file organizer and syncing solution for your computing uses.
Beep Me - Reminders - Basic edition
Beep Me - Reminders - Basic edition is a universal app with a gorgeous UI. When you're bogged down work, or just have a lot going on in your life, it can become easy to miss appointments. It's similar to the calendar app on your iDevice, so it will seem pleasantly familiar. I find it easier to use, because you don't have to go through all of the fields as you would in the calendar. Just make a memo, then set the "beep time" for when you would like it to go off. No more missing or being late to appointments! Beep Me is an app that showcases simplicity at its finest, and sometimes that's what we need when trying to stay organized and on track. Please note that this app is free, ad-supported, and you only get 3 reminders and alarm sounds. If you'd prefer not to be distracted by ads or be limited to how many reminders and alarms you're able to set, I'd recommend upgrading to the full version for just $1.99.
Awesome Note HD (+To-do/Calendar)
Awesome Note HD (+To-do/Calendar) not only helps you keep all of your thoughts and ideas in one place, but assists you in remembering birthdays and your scheduled needs throughout each day. Your important notes and anything that you have input in order to help organize your days will show right in Awesome Note HD's calendar. This is a major bonus, as a calendar function is essential when improving upon your organizational skills. The ability to set alarms for your to dos, transfer by syncing everything right to Google Docs or Evernote, and passcode protection for your safety make this a truly awesome helper to stay on top of things.
OmniFocus for iPad
A major part of any organizational system is a to do list app. We have mentioned other apps in this AppList that have to do functions included, but OmniFocus provides a complete workspace in which to get all of your tasks done in a no-nonsense manner. Having a game plan for the day will help you become more organized. Once you have used OmniFocus to organize your tasks into folders by importance, set start and due date reminders, and review your projects to stay on time, you'll feel accomplished and even more in control.
Last Time - track your important events
Last Time - track your important events will make sure that you aren't wasting your precious time on unimportant things. Utilizing your time is key when it comes to organization. This app helps track what you do (or don't want to do), where you go, who you've visited, or even the last time that you have enjoyed a certain activity. You will find that when you start using Last Time regularly, you'll become better at managing your time. Learning to categorize what needs improvement in terms of time management will help put you back in control of your life, therefore becoming balanced in all areas.
Mint.com Personal Finance
Your finances need to be attended to just as much as other parts of your life need to be organized. Mint.com is an app that integrates with a web service which tracks how are spending your money. This service is backed by Intuit, known to be very good with protecting your privacy. Simply link your bank accounts with this service, and it will tell you what you have spent your money on.
