I'm always mentioning the apps that I couldn't live without over on my Instagram page, so I thought it might be useful for me to pull them together in one blog post - hope you find something here that makes your day that little bit easier!
Perfect for organising work flow. If you don't already use Trello for your own business, clients or personal lists - take a look. I love it. You create a 'board' per project, and then within that board you create cards (or lists) of topics within that project. Then, within that card, you can then list all the activities you need to do. You can add due date, colour codes, attach images, assign tasks, add link to external pages and lots more. For more information visit www.trello.com.
The perfect option when there is more than two people discussing more than one topic. Rather than endless emails going backwards and forwards, Slack allows you to keep all the messages on a 'board'. You select which topic you would like to update the other users with and hey presto! They will then get a notification that you have made an update. Take a look at www.slack.com for more info.
My absolute favourite Instagram app for my own account (here) and those of my clients. Unfold is all about gorgeous, easy on the eye Stories templates. You get a couple of free options, and then pay (really low cost) if you want any of the additonal paid for templates. I love it and I think you will too! Check out www.unfoldstori.es/
If there is one app I couldn't live without: This. Is. It. Need a professional looking flyer? Canva. Need a social media graphic? Canva. Need a swish and professional CV? Canva.
You get the picture! Canva allows you to create graphics in keeping with your brand identity, with a huge amount of free options. If you find you are using it more and more, you may like to invest in the paid option, which opens up your options of images, and allows you to create folders. If you do one thing today, take a look at Canva!!
If you are continually forgetting passwords, take a look at LastPass - it is sooooo clever! Once installed, it will remember all of your passwords in it's 'vault'. It also allows you to share your passwords with others, without them actually seeing them.
As someone who is obsessive about improving time management and finding different strategies to improve how I work, I love this app. It is based on the Pomodoro method of working within your limited time rather than against it. If you are looking for ways to improve your productivity, take a look.
If you want to make the aesthetic of your Instagram page really stand out, Planoly is a great way of planning your grid so that you can see how the flow of posts looks before you actually post them. You have the capability to schedule the posts, move them around and the best bit is that you can save different batches of hashtags to use for different types of posts.
I really hope you find this useful, and don't forget to let me know in the comments your can't live without app!
