Time-Saving Apps

Did you accomplish everything you wanted to in 2013? If not, it might be efficiency that’s holding you back. Make your resolutions count this year, by utilizing apps that keep you on track. From day planners set to a timer, to automating social media, these apps will help you get things done in no time. There’s nothing like finishing your tasks early and going out and having some fun. With this much productivity, you’ll be finished with your 2014 to-do list by spring.

Ifttt

If you don’t know about Ifttt, then you’re missing out. Ifttt, which stands for “if this then that,” syncs your choice applications. Come up with your own “recipes,” or choose from Ifttt’s most popular automations. Have your iPhone photos emailed to you as soon as they’re snapped, or have your contacts synced to a spreadsheet instantaneously. Update your Facebook and Twitter profile pictures simultaneously or send out a “Happy New Year” tweet as soon as the clock hits midnight.  With Ifttt, the time-saving possibilities are endless. This free app is available on iOS and Android.

Evernote

Evernote is consistently one of the most popular productivity apps, claiming to have 80 million users. Its popularity is due to its easy-to-use functionality and ability to organize just about anything. More than just an app, Evernote syncs across all devices, from your laptop to your smartphone. Use Evernote to create to-do lists and voice notes. Snap photos for visual reminders. Create notes directly from your email, by “tagging” topics. Another Evernote family app, Skitch, lets you create notes the old-fashioned way, with sketches. Evernote Food helps you keep tabs on your favorite meals. This free app is available on iOS and Android, with upgrades at an additional cost.

Sooner

It can be a hassle to move things around on the calendar, but Sooner solves that problem. Sooner syncs with your iOS calendar, displaying the day’s activities on a wheel. Pinch items to re-order events in a cinch. Changes will automatically update in your device calendar. Sooner also has a wheel for categorizing tasks by topic, making it easy to visualize what needs to be done. This app costs $5.99 and is available on iOS.

title="Pocket">Pocket

It’s easy to get distracted by web links, but Pocket lets you save them for later. Yet instead of bookmarking them or emailing them to yourself, send them to Pocket to view them all in one place. The best part is that you don’t need an Internet connection to see items. Pocket downloads the articles and videos, so you can view them when you’re riding the subway. Send an item to your friend’s Pocket for easy sharing. Links saved to the app are synced across platforms, from your smartphone to your computer.  This free app is available on iOS and Android.

30:30

/>

If you’re familiar with the Pomodoro technique, 30:30 is a great way to keep you on track. Create your to-do list and set it to a timer. Break it up into 30 minute tasks, or create your own custom rotation. As soon as you hit the start button, the app keeps you going from one task to the next. Productivity schedules can be saved and items can easily be re-ordered. Nothing saystimes up!” like 30:30. This free app is available on iOS.
