Three apps to get organised

With our lives getting more hectic by the day, our tendency to forget things is becoming common. Whether you need to remember to keep an appointment or make an important call, here are some apps that will help you stay on track.

 

To do list

Someone has rightly said, “Failing to plan is planning to fail”. This app will help you stay on top of things and keep track of all your appointments and tasks. It allows you to create different lists under which you can add the tasks that need to be done. Not only will this help you increase your productivity, it will also allow you to save precious time that you can utilise elsewhere. You can also sync the app with your Google account to create a backup. The interface is user-friendly and one can add a widget to the home screen for better access. (http://bit.ly/2mWylQI)

Have you been in a situation where a brilliant idea struck you but you couldn't note it down and you forgot it later? This app aims at helping creative writers quickly jot down their ideas. Whether you are making notes for a novel, a poem or even an essay, the app's simplified interface will enable you to easily record everything. It allows users to check the word and character count, undo and redo text and share the content with others.
