Numerous scientific studies have been done just to prove something we’ve always known since its inception: smartphones cripple productivity. Thanks to the mobile apps that these small gadgets can hold, users have been enabled to watch funny dog videos for hours and plant as many virtual crops as they want. But these gadgets need not always be for the doom of productivity. Installing the right set of apps can turn your smartphone into a helpful assistant. Available for both iOS and Android users, these apps can help you keep track of tasks, organize collections, and improve your life: 

Bills Monitor

Do you often forget your bills? Never pay for penalties on bills again. Bills Monitor reminds you when each of your bill is due for payment, from a week to the day before. Just add every bill you pay for on a monthly basis to the app and categorize them for easier tracking.

You may have folders for utilities, credit cards and for other extra services you pay for like the monthly salary of your household help or the family driver’s. A monthly reminder may also be set up for every recurring bill you have, just so you wouldn’t have to update the app every now and then.

Wunderlist

While crossing out a task in a written list has its own kind of satisfaction, a virtual one is equally fun for someone who loves having them, too. Wunderlist is an app that aggregates all the lists you may have from your to-do list for the month to the grocery list you need for that weekly trip to the mall.

Like Bills Monitor, you may also have folders for every type of lists you may have for seamless tracking. If you have an urgent task coming up, set a reminder, and the app will notify you when you need it. If the task is time-based, set up a deadline so you’ll never forget about it.

The app may also be synced with your other devices like a tablet or a smart watch. You can also share your lists with other Wunderlist users, too. 

LastPass

Do you always forget your passwords? This app can solve that problem. LastPass keeps all of your passwords for all of your online accounts from Facebook to that online banking app. If you’re wary of its security, LastPass’ developers say even the app’s servers do not store the passwords. With the app, you only have to remember one master password to access all of the account details you have online. Do note however that LastPass makes sure that the master password is not something as basic as “12345” or even “password.”

Pocket


Online readers, rejoice! Pocket lets you save every article link posted on any major social media platform—Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram—to one app. This way, if ever you’re stuck in traffic, you can browse through all of your saved articles on Pocket and read them on the go.

No need to search for that article you came across on Facebook this morning ever again or go through hundreds of emails just to read that recommended story from the boss. What’s great about the app is it lets you read articles even offline. Just make sure that you refresh the app while you’re still connected to the Internet just so it properly loads all of the saved articles you may have.

24me

True, some of these apps’ functions can be done by a single, powerful app and that may be 24me. You can save notes, write lists, schedule them in a calendar and have all of these details synced to your Facebook account, too. If you let it save your location, the app can also help you schedule your day better as it can give you updates on traffic and weather.

IFTTT (If This Then That)

IFTTT is a game changer in the world of organizing as it can connect two apps for a certain task to be done. For example, IFTTT can notify you the weather update for tomorrow every night on Messenger or sync all the receipts, orders and invoices you receive via email in a single Google Spreadsheet. If you have smart appliances at home, then the app can help you manage them, too. For example, the app can send you a text if you left the refrigerator door open for too long or if it already needs filtering. These functions are all made possible by “applets” which you can download for free to the app.
