I have an iPhone 6 and I will tell you between my family and my business, it would be so disorganized. I’d probably forget 90% of what I need to do if it weren’t for my phone. I found that I am more organized and complete my tasks when I use my phone instead of a paper calendar. I’m not sure if it’s because I always have my phone with me or if it’s because of the reminder that pops up.
I also found that there are apps that I can use on my phone that allow me to work even when I don’t have my computer with me. This has come in handy when I’m sitting in the waiting room at the doctor’s office or when I’m in the car on vacation.
These are some of the applications that I use almost every day for personal or business tasks.
1. Google Calendar
The iPhone comes with a calendar, but I have found the Google Calendar app to be much easier to use and the reminder sound is better. The application gives you the ability to configure a series of reminders that appear on your phone and also gives you the ability to receive a reminder by email.
2. Google Drive
I use Google Drive for several of my clients and for personal items and it is very accessible. I can access those files whether I’m at home or on the go and I don’t have to email myself to get access. There are two applications that accompany Google Drive and that allow you to edit your documents. Those are Google Sheets and Google Docs. Without those apps, you wouldn’t be able to edit your documents from your phone.
I love social media and it is a great way to put your business in front of others. Since I’m busy during the day, I use Everypost to schedule some of my social media posts. I can schedule posts for Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and many others. What I really like about Everypost is that it allows me to schedule posts to my Facebook group and brings the image with the post.
I’m sure there are plenty of other apps that would be helpful too, but these are the main ones I use. Without these apps, you would be lost and accomplish nothing in a day. I have found that with these iPhone apps I am on top of my game every day.
