Every overstretched and overcommitted business owner could use more help with list-making, meeting preparation and time optimization. The following five mobile apps are more like virtual assistants, helping you become more discerning with your schedule, energy and attention, so you can be sure you’re working on the right things at the right time. Check them out:
1 – Accompany
A virtual “research analyst,” Accompany prepares you for important meetings by delivering facts, news and insights to you on the individuals and companies you have scheduled meetings with. The information is then compiled into a concise briefing and emailed to you before your meeting. Have a networking event coming up? A business conference? You can rely on Accompany to provide you with all the pertinent data you need to be fully informed, impress clients with your preparedness and land the business deal.
2 – Any.do
Are you the one who’s always writing out your to-do lists, but not actually making time for those tasks in your online calendar? That’s where Any.do can help. Any.do enables you to transfer to-do lists into your calendar so you can see your workload and actually make progress on it. It’s the perfect way to turn lists into organized action items.
3 – Peek Calendar
Sleek and super-minimal, Peek Calendar displays only the most important details about an upcoming event or alert. It’s perfect for the business owner that values simplicity and getting right to the point. Peek Calendar can sync up with other apps and software, such as iCloud and Google Calendar to help you plan, create and manage events.
4 – Trello
If you feel lost in the chaos of task management, Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards, lists and cards, allowing you to better prioritize work and gain clarity into project progress. At a glance, you can see the tasks being worked on, who’s working on what and project status. It makes project management, even at the most granular (task) level, easy and less stressful. The mobile app looks and feels just like the desktop version with its simple, intuitive interface.
5 – Timepage
Timepage combines events, maps, contacts, and weather into a digital subscription calendar service geared toward busy entrepreneurs and professionals. If you tend to overestimate how much time you actually have, Timepage has a special “heat map” calendar feature, which shows you how full your days are so you can manage your time, move activities around and delegate work, if necessary.
