With old-time tried and tested organizing apps continuing to dominate the app stores, there are newer apps emerging that deserve a mention. Some of these ones may have even been around a bit since we last gave you our faves, but some recently made it to the top of the list for organizing junkies.
So since it’s been some time since we last spoke about apps that help us with productivity and organization, here’s a recap:
In 2012, Michele wrote about The Best iPhone Apps For Getting Organized And Being More Productive and followed up with The Best Android Apps For Getting Organized And Being More Productive.
Then in 2015 we revisited latest apps: Latest Apps to Help You Stay Organized.
Now, we are going to look at a few current favorites for your lifestyle, home and work needs.
