Mobile devices are supposed to be all about ease and convenience, but a smartphone or tablet is only as good as the apps you install on it. Finding apps that suit your needs can be a time-consuming task in itself. Maximise your valuable time with this list of convenient apps that will miraculously free up your schedule.
A super-powered calendar app, Mynd makes your day easy by giving you the whole picture. View your entire schedule, including meetings and the names and contact details of attendees. Transit time is calculated for you and an alert will remind you when you need to leave. The app is also capable of adapting to your behaviour, memorising your most-visited locations and frequent activities.
Standing for “IF This Then That,” IFTTT allows you to create “recipes” to streamline your mobile device usage. Customisable triggers and actions let you command an app to automatically perform a task when another action is performed – for example, you could tell Dropbox to automatically save any photo you upload to Instagram.
CamScanner turns your phone into a portable scanner. Take a photo of a document to easily digitise it into a high-quality PDF, which can then be annotated, tagged, searched and password-protected. The documents are uploaded into the cloud and can be shared with friends and co-workers.
Eating well is essential for getting through that to-do list. What if you don’t have time to cook? The Menulog app has over 3,500 takeaway restaurants across Australia from cuisines including Chinese, Thai, Indian, Pizza and more. A map feature allows you to see what restaurants are nearby and you can set up orders ahead of time.
Don’t have time to read that interesting article? Instapaper allows you to save web content and access it later on any synced device. Download reading material from your iPhone to your Kindle when you know you won’t have internet access. You can also highlight text to quickly find your place or note key information.
