Top 5 Mobile Apps to Get Organized Now

Smartphones revolutionized the way we stayed connected to the Internet, allowing us to check e-mails, listen to music, and surf the web from anywhere. As developers have had more time to create for these devices, sophisticated apps have finally become a reality.

Below are the top five modern mobile apps to get organized right now!

unnamed-31. Evernote

This as an absolutely fantastic tool to get organized, as Evernote does a bit of everything. Use it to organize notes for work, classes, and even personal thoughts. Add tags, images, and those necessary to-do list items. It syncs between multiple devices, which is essential in staying current, organized, and efficient. There are also Enterprise options and other add-ons that are purchasable on the website and in the app itself.

  • Get it: Evernote.com
  • Available: Android, iOS, Windows Phone
  • Cost: Free (in-app purchases)

unnamed-12. Pocket

Pocket is the best way to keep your bookmarks with you everywhere you go. Have a picture or an article you want to share on the go, like when visiting a client or friend?  No problem, with very little effort, the webpage can be saved to your Pocket, and available at the click of a button.

  • Get it: Getpocket.com
  • Available: Android, iOS, Windows Phone
  • Cost: Free

3. Office Mobile

This is relatively new to iOS community, but definitely a lifesaver. If you have an Office 365 account, you can create and edit documents straight from your phone or tablet. You can also save and open from the cloud. It’s Microsoft’s alternative to Google Drive, but works so much easier with all those Office programs that work so well! The free version is still useful as well and lets you open Office documents but not edit them.

unnamed-14. Google Drive

Microsoft isn’t the only cloud service that has in-app editable documents. Google Drive is an extremely reliable service that also works on mobile devices. Because it syncs from phones to PCs to tablets, this app is extremely useful on-the-go. Also, it makes collaborative documents and projects so smooth and efficient.  And, it’s easy to share your documents with friends, co-workers, and family, too!

unnamed5. HabitRPG

HabitRPG literally changes the game for chores.  A fun way to get organized, HabitRPG gamifies to-do lists, goals, habits, and more. Customize your avatar and experience. Earn rewards and level up when you check off items from your lists. Work with friends to complete even bigger tasks and battle monsters! The newest iteration of the app has been completely redesigned, making it handier than ever.

  • Get it: www.habitrpg.com
  • Available: Android, iOS
  • Cost: Free; donations accepted

Great post, Jennifer–I love Pocket! It’s especially great for bookmarking articles to read later when you get into an area with no service (like when you’re riding the metro or going through a tunnel). It’s allowed me to keep up with interesting news stories when I would’ve just been fiddling with my thumbs or daydreaming.

Sunrise is also a great calendar/reminder app that I can’t recommend enough!
