Do you feel like your life is currently in shambles? It's time to get organized, girl. We spend so much time glued to our phones all day, not realizing they can be our pocket-sized assistants on any given day—and let's face it, we all need an assistant right? Ahead are a few mobile apps that could help you get your sh*t done the easy way.
Think of Tick Tick as your ultimate to-do list. When your phone's calendar just isn't cutting it, this is where you pop in all of your day-to-day tasks. Need to go food shopping? Check. Need to walk the dog? Check. You get the gist of it, and it's super helpful to pull up and update every day. You can also set alerts for yourself and rank them from highest priority to lowest.
Running low on cash? You probably lost track of your coins after your brunch order last weekend. Mint is here to be your financial assistant by keeping track of all your purchases. If you've signed up for any subscriptions that you forgot about, this is where to find them to hit cancel finally. Mint also gives you a clear picture of where most of your money goes into, and yes we've felt guilty after seeing our charts. Use mint to set a better budget for yourself and be a little stress-free financially.
If you're obsessed with Instagram (because who isn't?), then you'll need to get on Planoly. This app is the first visual planner for the 'gram. While other apps allow you to either preview your feed before posting a photo or schedule posts in advance, this one does it all. It even has relevant hashtags for you to choose from to boost your engagement. This one's definitely for the social media queen, but it's free so why not give it a try?
We barely know anyone who doesn't have Venmo yet, but if you haven't hopped on the bandwagon, here's why you should. Venmo is a free digital wallet that quickly allows you to send money back and forth for owed payments. You can request money from friends, and send them whatever you owe them on the fly. All you have to do is link your bank account or debit card to get started. While the app runs on a business day schedule, you now have the option to send money in a few minutes for a small fee of 25 cents.
Jotting everything down from a meeting isn't the most fun part of a job, but we know it needs to get done. To better organize your notes, or transfer handwritten ones to a digital file, try Evernote. This one is available on both desktop and mobile, but anything stored on your account automatically syncs onto your device. So you can read notes on the go, or type new ones out on your phone if there's ever anything pressing.
You're probably so tired of your phone's battery running low due to your squad's constant group texts. If you're part of multiple group chats, then our hats go off to you and your storage plan. That's where GroupMe comes in to solve all of your texting needs. Rather than having all of your conversations on your phone's regular inbox, run them through GroupMe and have them all in one place. Another major plus is that any phone can participate in a GroupMe chat, and users without iMessage aren't being left out. Win-win.
