From the office, to the grocery store, to yoga class, our cell phone comes with us everywhere. With so many to choose from, navigating the app store can sometimes be overwhelming. Here are some apps that we personally know and love. What’re your favorite apps you can’t live without? Tweet us @plumalleyco and tell us what you think!
Buffer is a great social media tool that allows you to automatically share videos, articles, or pictures throughout the day. Add them to your queue and let Buffer do the rest of the work for you.
This free app is perfect for freelance or hourly workers. ClockIn lets you easily keep track of the amount of time you spend with clients, then you can export to your computer. Time management has never been simpler.
Remember the last time you went to a networking event and came back with a purseful of business cards? Snapp! is an app that allows you to easily enter and organize your contacts. It’ll even send them a personalized email as soon as you add them! Great for the on-the-go businesswoman.
It happens to us all— you’re scrolling through the news, and come across a great story that you want to read but don’t have the time. With Pocket, you can save stories to read later at your convenience.
The popular link-shortening site also has a great app for checking your statistics on the go. With the Bit.ly app, you can see how many clicks your links have, and organize them too. Never have to wonder about your bit.ly analytics again!
If you’re not using Evernote, you need to. Now. You can save documents, images, even audio files from your phone, then have instant access to them on nearly every computer or mobile device. Perfect for taking notes in a meeting or even making grocery lists.
Forget the boring contact list that is default in so many phones. Brewster takes your address book, and transforms it into an interactive profile for all your contacts. Sort by location, employment, even the last time you contacted them.
Ever have so many To Do lists that you don’t know where to start? Asana is the holy grail in task management and organization. Sync with your email and your co-workers and stay up to date on everyone’s projects. Did we mention it’s completely free?
If you have a small business, Square is perfect for credit card transactions. It’s a device that allows you to swipe credit cards right from your phone or iPad. With the option to email receipts, next day deposits, and at a low, 2.75% fee, Square is the future of credit card transactions for all types of businesses.
Brilliant ideas can strike at a moment’s notice. Catch is a nifty note taking app that allows you to make notes, manage to do lists, set reminders, and share it with your friends.
