Most of our lives now revolve around apps. We use email apps for work, social networking apps to keep up with our friends, messaging apps to communicate with friends and family, and delivery apps to purchase food. The best feature of any app is how they can streamline our lives by making everything simpler. Here are a few apps that we con that will simplify your life:
If people aren’t using the default note app on their phone, they’re probably using Evernote. A crowd favorite, this app offers a cloud-based space for pretty much every note you want to keep track of. Whether it’s a grocery list, a draft for your presentation, or meeting minutes, this app can store everything. On top of all of that, you can also use it to back up important documents, save entire web pages, record audio, and embed photos and videos.
Evernote is free for Android and iOS.
If you’re meticulous about your to-do lists and want them more organized and streamlined, Todoist is your best bet. It lets you set up new tasks, establish deadlines, assign priorities, and link together a group of similar tasks. Once you’ve completed an item, you can tick it off easily just as you would strike out a task on paper, giving you a sense of accomplishment. And while it’s mostly free, the premium version features a bevvy of useful tools, like setting reminders, commenting on tasks, and automatic backups.
Todoist is free for Android and iOS, and the premium version starts at $3 per month.
Cybersecurity experts always remind us that we must set complicated passwords for different accounts, but memorizing each one can prove to be a challenge. LastPass uses a AES-256 bit encryption with PBKDF2 SHA-256 and salted hashes to safeguard your passwords and other sensitive data like credit card details and delivery addresses, so you don’t have to keep keying them each time you log into a website or shop online. If you’re not too creative with making passwords, it can also craft unique combinations for you. Plus, it also supports multi-factor authentications, protecting you from phishing attempts targeted at you.

If you’re just starting to build credit or are already juggling several financial commitments in your life, this app will help simplify your finances. The Petal Card app doesn’t just help you track your credit score, it also lets you plan your budget so you can accurately see how much you’re spending. Another useful feature is that it alerts you to unnecessary subscriptions allowing you to see what you don’t use in order to save money. With this app you’ll be able to simplify your finances in one place.
Petal Card is free for Android and iOS.
We all need a break from the daily hustle and bustle of life. If you want to take a breather from it all, Good Housekeeping notes that Headspace has got you covered. It offers guided meditation sessions with varying lengths and purposes, allowing you to either meditate in the middle of the day or set aside a special time for clearing your head. And while it’s primarily a meditation app, it’s also great for sleep. It has a free version that delivers “sleepcasts,” 45 to 55-minute audio experiences that help you visualize calming experiences. The library is updated every night, so you never run out of stories to listen to.
Headspace is free for Android and iOS, and the premium version starts at $12.99 per month.
