There’s so many apps that claim to be effective in streamlining your work schedule, but to us, Trello is a clear winner.
Create lists and boards and invite colleagues to collaborate and comment on projects all from your phone, and enjoy the sheer joy of ticking off and archiving tasks when you’re done.
Trello isn’t just awesome for work organisation, it’s also a great app to utilise in any facet of your life. While there are paid options, the free version has excellent functionality. With industry leaders like Google and National Geographic using and promoting Trello, you can’t go wrong.
Do you remember the scene in Clueless, where Cher uses her state of the art computer program to choose her outfit for the day?
Well, the world of app development has caught up to the 1995 flick’s ingenious idea. If your wardrobe is bursting with items, and you struggle to know what you own - let alone what you want to wear - on any given day, the best free options out there include Stylicious or Closet+.
But be warned. If you are serious about organising your closet like a professional, then you have to be prepared to invest a little setup time. This means photographing each clothing item and uploading it. Think of it as a smart investment of your time for serious time-saving later.
Yes, most banks now have apps you use to handle your accounts. But, most of them aren’t helping you stay on top of your finances or giving you a clear snapshot of where you stand money-wise.
Pocketbook is a standout in the bustling world of budgeting and expense apps. Not only is it visually appealing (definitely a plus when you’re dealing with finances), but it lets you set a budgeting limit, sync your bank account transactions, categorise transactions and organise your upcoming bills. At the end of every week, it even sends you a summary of your spending.
Even better, it’s free and an Aussie app, so it’s designed with our currency and banks in mind.
Stay tuned next month for Part 2 of our countdown of the best organisation apps for every aspect of your life - you won’t regret it!
