Organization Apps: Five That Keep Us Organized at Work


Our cellphones and our organization apps are now an integral part in how we stay up-to-date with what we have going on at work. Whether we are quickly checking our email while walking to the car or making a last minute edit to a pitch that is about to be sent out, our phones are always involved in our day-to-day business. That being said, keeping track of everything on our phones can be a daunting task so here are five of our favorite apps that make sure we are always organized:

  • Trello: A highly customizable digital bulletin board that you can use to set up anything from to do lists, tasks, mores and more. Users create “lists”, which are dynamic containers that can be filled with “cards.” These can be anything from tasks, notes, ideas, pictures and more, that users can then drag and drop up and down the line, or move to other lists. All of this can be shared with other users, with provisions for creating new cards, adding comments, and assigning tasks.

  • Gmail: A real no-brainer, the Gmail app makes it easy to access and reply to emails in no time at all. The Gmail app is incredibly powerful, consistently faster, and more reliable than the standard mail app that comes on all iPhones. A bonus is if you use Gmail on the web you will enjoy seeing your same organizational setup on your phone.

  • Dropbox: Makes it easy to access, share and edit files from wherever you are. This is a great organization apps for storing client’s files in the cloud so that they can be accessed from anywhere, at anytime.

  • Google Drive: Google Drive allows you to create documents that you can work on together with your coworkers in real time. You can also store all of your company’s information such as old documents, images, files, and much more.

  • Sprout Social: This is a great app to help manage all your company’s social networks. At BLND we use it to manage our client’s Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn accounts all on one site. You can schedule posts in advance and keep an eye on specific accounts and hashtags that are relevant to you so you can engage with others.
