Make Sure Your Money is Organized
Safe apps like Mint are a great idea for you if you need some help when it comes to monthly budgeting.

Do you have a list of online bookmarks that are getting too unwieldy for you to ever use again? Try Evernote!
This application makes it easy to keep track of day-to-day doings, both online and off, and you can also sync your info across all of your devices. It is the ultimate in note taking, staying organised, and keeping things findable.
Special Mention: A Productivity Suite
Carrot is just about the most improbable suit of productivity applications available. You can use it individually or as a bundle, and there are 5 different apps in total:
The Carrot in the application’s name serves two functions: it symbolizes the reward system the apps make use of to get you to get things done, like being able to access a new game when check something off your To-Do list. But Carrot is also the name of the wicked robot that guides you through each of the apps.
With Fit, she will lead you through a daily 7 Minutes of Hell, or a series of strength and cardio exercises with names as outrageous as The Celebrity Face Punch. You can use also Carrot to track what you are eating and she will publicly shame you if you overdo it, posting to your social feeds about your gluttony.
All of the actual functions that the Carrot applications perform can definitely be found elsewhere, but the character has been infused with so much personality that it goes a long way to elevating rather boring tasks from the mundane to the enjoyable. You’re kept wondering what she could possibly say next, and may well find yourself accomplishing the tasks you need to more quickly!
