Smart Phone Apps to Help You Master Your Day


I’ve heard it said that ‘time is money’ is an insult to time. Because you can always make more money, but you cannot make more time.

If you run a business, you know just how true that is!

For some people, syncing between your phone and an online calendar is enough. But, just like everyone has different needs in a planner, everyone has different functionality they expect of the calendar on their phone.

Here are a few apps that help you keep track of your schedule – in and out of the business. When you make the best possible use of your time, you’re able to be more fully present with the people you serve – from your clients to your loved ones.

Need a good app for getting there? Here are a few to try:

Fantastical 2 – Available for iPhone

Fantastical 2 is one of the most highly downloaded apps for keeping track of your time. With its simple design, this application makes it's easy to plan your day, call, email or even message the people on your schedule. Duplicate, share, or even move your events with ease.

Sunrise – Available for Android and Apple devices

Whether you prefer Google Calendar, iCloud, or Exchange, Sunrise gives an amazing user experience. The fresh and simple user interface makes it easy to use. Want to see who you're meeting with?

    Great list of calendars Julie!

    For me, I use Awesome Cal. I love it as it synchronises with my Google calendar, and I can add my reminders, notes for specific days, to do lists, in there. Plus, it synchronises between my iPhone and my iPad. I can’t live without it.

    I also use a paper version to track plans and ideas, but this iPhone app is really helpful in helping me plan my most important actions to take for the next day.
