As the New Year approaches, we’re all finding ways to be our best selves in 2017 from resolutions to new agendas to “new year, new me” plans. If you want to start your New Year on track, consider getting an organization app for your smartphone or tablet. An organization app can be easier to manage and travel with than agendas or notebooks. Plus, they come with the latest technology to help you stay on track.
Not sure where to start? We’ve put together a list of the best organization apps from note takers to calendars to get you started in 2017 and beyond:
This organization app for iOS helps you create a customized calendar. You can enter something as simple as “Meet Jessica for dinner on Saturday” and the app will create an event for you. It also comes with a task manager so you can stay on top of your to-do list. You can customize this calendar app as much as you want from setting recurring weekly events to choosing which reminders you receive. It’s simple and elegant interface makes it easy to stay on top of your monthly schedule as well.
Do you manage better week-to-week than monthly? Then this app is for you. This organization app allows you check out what you have due for the week at a glance. You can quickly and easily move appointments by dragging or copying and pasting them. Plus, you can organize your events by using different colours, icons, and reminders.
This app is the ultimate note app, in my opinion. You can use it to jot down ideas or you can use it as a daily diary. You can attach photos, drawings, and voice memos to each note as well to explore your creative side to help visualize your ideas. Set notes to have a reminder or create a checklist in a note so that it functions as a To Do list. Users can set birthday and anniversary reminders as well. With a ton of colour and font options, this app will keep you organized and let you have fun.
If you have a lot of projects on the go, the Notability app can help. You can use handwriting, typing, and photos to bring your project ideas to life. It has both note-taking and sketching tools so you can choose the route that’s right for you and your project – or just use both! You can zoom in on specific parts of your notes and share them through Google Drive, AirDrop, email, and Dropbox. This app also allows you to add and annotate PDFs. Plus, it also allows you to organize your notes within the app.
