There is practically nothing that your smart phones cannot do today, and we take a look at some of the apps which will help you keep your life well organized and balanced.
Topping our list is this self-sustained yet multifarious app called Wunderlist. The beauty of this app is that it caters to all class of people, from a full-fledged traveler to a lazy bodied individual. And what does it do? This app is like an on-the-go reminder alert for tasks that are as simple as grocery shopping (which your mom has been nudging you about) to as complex as a well organized BBQ plan with your friends. You can list down all the essentials you need by creating categories (and sub categories) and tagging it with time stamps. What’s best? You can even assign tasks to others just to make sure you’re not doing all the work!
For you all readers and bookworms out there, the Kindle, one of best reading apps is practically all you need to have in your phone. Search for your favourite books (or artists), buy and read them.
