In the new year, many of us will strive to be more organized, and why not? After all, the more systematized one is, the more productive one can be. Here are three apps that can help you stay more organized at the office in 2015.
Just about everything we do now requires a password and keeping them all straight in your head has never been harder. This is where an app like Dashlane can really come in handy. Available as an online tool and as an app for iOS and Android, this app stores all of your passwords in one place—helping you free your memory for more cool stuff. Dashlane is free, but adding the syncing capability between devices costs $20—a high price in the world of apps—but definitely worth the cost.
It’s very easy to obsess over home chores while at work—making it hard to focus. Instead of stressing yourself about it though, try outsourcing some of your home projects. This is where TaskRabbit may be able to help. This online tool, also available as an app for iOS and Android, allows you to post a task you need help with and shows you who in your area is available and what they charge.
TaskRabbit screens all of its taskers by verifying identities and checking for criminal records. Once you post a task, you will see hourly rates for taskers in your area and you are free to choose the rate that best suits your budget. A minimum of one hour worth of work is required and payment can be made securely online once the job is complete.
This simple to use app is available for Android and iOS and merges your calendar, email and social media networks. It prompts you before a meeting and even takes into account travel time. EasilyDo also allows you to post to Facebook and stores information like travel details. The free version does a lot, but the premium edition offers more features, such as travel alerts. At $5 per month, the price for the premium version is high. However, this app does a lot in an easy-to-use interface.
While staying organized isn’t always easy to do, having a few apps to help with planning and delegating can help you sustain your goals for 2015.
