Organise Your Life With 5 Apps

Whether you work from home or an office, for yourself of someone else, are a student or a stay-at-home parent, you’re probably a busy person. We all are. These mobile apps will help you stay productive and get organised.


This is a great place to keep track of all the paperwork and documents associated with different projects and set yourself to-do lists (complete with check boxes). It’s easily searchable, syncs between your smartphone and computer, and you can enter documents in a variety of ways – typed in the app, uploaded, scanned or snapped with your phone’s camera.


We all wish we could be that little bit better at budgeting. Pocketsmith can help with that! Set multiple budgets (eg. weekly, monthly, yearly), create cash projections to see how your saving plans can work, and link with your bank accounts to track your transactions and cross-reference them with your budgets.


This productivity app will keep you off your phone by growing trees. Similar to the pomodoro technique, when you want to focus you set the timer (usually for 30mins), then a tree starts growing. If you leave the app while the timer is on your tree will die. For each period of focus you are awarded points, which go towards planting real trees!


Anylist is the evolution of the old-fashioned grocery list on the fridge that anyone in the family can add to. Create lists for different stores and share them with your family members or housemates so you can all add things to the list as you remember them. When your list is updated by someone else you’ll get a notification. Supermarket lists are handily broken down into section, so you won’t be going back and forth in the shop.


Remember that scene from Clueless with the outfit planner? Stylebook is better than that. Take photos of all your clothes and accessories and save them in outfit combinations to remember for later – it makes getting ready so much easier! You can add in how much your clothes cost and track when you wear them, then the app can give you a cost per wear so you know which pieces were good investments. This makes it easy to make better shopping choices in the future, and also makes cleaning out your closet a simpler task.
