Must-have apps to improve your organisation

Apps are a great help, from tracking our fitness goals to making online payments easier. However, deciding what to download can be difficult when the app store is fit to burst with a constant stream of new releases.

Here’s our run-down of the must-have apps to help you organise many aspects of your life:

Evernote Scannable

Evernote Scannable is the dream app for busy people who always have a mountain of paperwork. The downloadable app helps you make sense of your documents—simply scan them via your smartphone camera and create a digital bank of information. Whether it’s receipts, contracts or business cards, you’ll never mislay that important document again.

Scan a business card and the app will save it as a contact in your phone and pull-in extra data from LinkedIn.

Out of Milk

If the grocery shop results in you spending a fortune on unnecessary items and leaving without the stuff you really need, Out of Milk is for you. The clever app puts an end to your food shopping mishaps.

Available for Android smartphones, the app enables multiple people to create a joint shopping list. Invite others to your list and they’ll be able to add their own groceries to it and check off any that they buy. Your list will update almost instantly, so you’ll never end up with 24 eggs and eight pints of milk again!

True Potential Investor

Setting money aside for the future can be tough given our monthly expenses — but could the clever True Potential Investor app be set to changes this?

Using the self-directed investment service, you can create goals and make an investment directly from the app. You can select from a range of investment portfolios with differing levels of risk to help you meet your goal*.

*With investing, your capital is at risk. Investments can fluctuate in value and you may get back less than you invest. Tax rules can change at any time.

7 Minute Workout

Paying for a gym membership you don’t use? 7 Minute Workout is an app that could change all of this, by allowing you to change wherever you are — without even a gym in sight.

If you’re worried about fitting them into your day, each workout lasts just seven minutes. It’s perfect if the thought of an hour on the treadmill fills you with dread. There are 12 exercises to complete in 30-second intervals with 10 second breaks. Offering a flexible approach to exercise, it’s great if you’re looking to boost your fitness or lose weight.
