Managing a full-time job and making time for the things you love is never easy, whether you’re commuting, have a family or are living as a freelancer. We all know that there are loads of gadgets and apps out there that have been designed to make our lives easier, but sometimes it feels like there are so many that sorting through them for the best ones is a little like finding a needle in a haystack. Recently, I’ve taken a little time out of my schedule to search for some of the best new apps, and they’ve actually helped me save a lot of time! Here are some of my favourites.
This mobile app was developed and implemented by several Facebook founders and used to revolutionise that company. Asana allows you to plan, track and share all your professional and personal tasks. This app is helping businesses and individuals around the world become more productive, and it can do the same for you!
Jinn is one of the hottest new apps around, and while it’s only available in London at the moment, it’s definitely worth keeping an eye on. Jinn is a delivery service that will bring you literally anything (that can fit inside a car) within an hour of you ordering it. Pizza? A guitar? A new Ikea workstation? No problem.
This helpful app works much in the same way as Jinn, but instead of products, Bizzby gives you instant access to a wide range of services. You can arrange or book any service you desire with a simple click! Just type in what you’re looking for—a taxi, a haircut or a landscape artist, for example—and Bizzby will do the rest.
· Hungry House
Throw out all those menus accumulating in your kitchen cupboard because now there’s an easier way to manage your takeaway and delivery options. Hungry House locates all the best restaurants and deals in your area and allows you to order and pay without having to make a single call. Whether you’re in the mood for fish and chips or a healthy salad, Hungry House has all the satisfying options you’re looking for.
Mopp is a godsend for those of us who can’t seem to keep on top of tidying the house, or who just can’t stand doing it! This simple app lets you search and hire a cleaner for a flat rate. There’s no frustrating negotiation or confusion here. The rate is £10 an hour, and cleaners will be at your house at the time of your choosing. You can set up a weekly cleaning, or just get in touch when you need them, say, before having friends over at the weekend.
These are just a few of my favourite new apps, and I have to say that they’ve made my life a lot easier. Do you have any suggestions for timesaving apps or useful life hacks? If so, don’t forget to leave them in the comments section!
