Mobile app development industry has come a long way. From its humble beginnings a decade or ago to a multi-billion dollar business, mobile apps have transformed the way we live. Whether it is waking up early in the morning, checking emails, getting your daily dose of news or communicating with friends and family, we heavily depend on these mobile apps to perform basic to complex daily tasks.
Thanks to efficient mobile app development, increasing hardware and software capabilities and high-speed mobile broadband, we can take advantage of these mobile apps. But, did you know that you can use these mobile apps to make your life easy? Why not put these mobile apps to streamline and organize your life? Here are seven mobile apps that can help you in this regard.
With so much on our plates, it is hard to get all done by the end of the day. Fortunately, you can take advantage of automation and get more done in less time. With the help of IFTTT, you can automate a lot of stuff by creating combinations of apps and services called “recipes”. For instance, you can set up IFTTT to post images on Facebook and upload the same image to Dropbox, all with a single tap. The possibilities are endless and you can literally automate your digital life and save a lot of time by creating useful recipes.
Gone are the days when we use a single device (desktop) to browse the internet. Times have changed and today, we all have multiple devices such as smartphones, tablets, and smartwatches to access the web. If you are a type of person who switches between multiple devices frequently and wants to send files between different devices, then Pushbullet is for you.
But the story does not end there. Pushbullet let you reply to message, see notifications and do much more directly from the desktop. The user can make the most of its remote file browsing capabilities across connected devices. Although, this app is free but if you want to move large files across multiple devices, then you will have to pay for the premium version. When it comes to usefulness and utility, there are very few apps that can match Pushbullet in that department. Managing files across different devices have never been that easy, thanks to Pushbullet.
We all use dozens of online services on a daily basis. Remembering the passwords for every account can be quite challenging. Thankfully, there are many apps that can save all your passwords. Dashlane takes the game one step further. It goes well beyond passwords and saves all your sensitive information such as credit card information and bank details. Log in automatically into your accounts without pressing a single key and get more done in less time. It uses strong encryption and let users implement two-factor authentication for ultimate security.

Remember Microsoft Office? It has long been a productivity suite of choice. With the advent of cloud storage services, now you can store all your documents in the cloud and access them anytime from anywhere with an internet-enabled device. Sync your files across multiple devices, collaborate on documents, view and edit them and do much more with Google’s cloud based productivity suite. If you are not always connected to the internet, you can also cache some of the files to access offline. You can also download the standalone apps such as Docs, Sheets, and Slides to create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations on the go.
When it comes to organizing your life and work, the first thing that comes to our mind is to create a To-Do list. To-Do lists can help you keep tabs on important tasks and ensure that you don’t miss any important tasks, which is a possibility if you don’t make a To-Do list. Wunderlist is one of the best apps to create a To-Do list. It not only lets you create a To-Do list but also delegate these tasks to others, which is a big bonus. This means that you can share the workload and set up chores for your family members easily. Wunderlist also provides an option to create a grocery list so you don’t miss out any item when you go on your next monthly grocery trip.
We all have been in this situation when we have to convert physical documents into a digital equivalent. That is when we need a scanner. Thanks to the advancement in smartphone camera technology, now your smartphone can double up as a scanner but it needs an app for that. CamScanner is that app. CamScanner takes the hassle out of the process and lets users scan documents and content them into PDF files. You can also save the PDF file or send it via email too. Pay a nominal fee to get the fax feature as well. If you want to use it extensively then it is better to invest in the pro version of the app.
