With a new season upon us, lots of us would like to start being more organized and productive in our daily tasks. Smart phones and tablets allow you to manage your tasks, track your time, and stay organized in ways that were never possible before.
The newest technology allows us to make action lists, review our daily calendar, as well as access and review documents in the palm of our hands, at virtually any location.
The following apps have the power to help you achieve all your daily goals and maximize your productivity. With these apps you can create to-do lists, invoice contract work, upload files, access your computer from different locations, and manage all your online accounts and passwords, and much more. Here they are:

You’re able to see tasks that are located nearby, organize upcoming tasks, as well as add and complete tasks as you do them. The app detects your current location to see nearby tasks that are due that day or week, and plan the most efficient way to get things done. You can organize efficiently by list, Smart List, tag, or location and prioritize your tasks. The download is free, but you must have a RTM Pro account.
Evernote. This is a great app that makes it easy to remember things from your everyday life using your computer, phone, tablet and the web. Evernote keeps everything in sync—all of your notes, files and images are made available on every device you use.
