5 Apps and Services to Simplify Your Life

5 Apps and Services to Simplify Your Life

It’s a fast-paced world, and having the right apps can help you keep up with your hectic schedule. Here are just five companies to consider if you want to simplify your life and outsource some of your problems.

1. TaskRabbit

Do you have lawns that need mowing or leaves that need raking? Is the drip-drip-drip of a leaky faucet driving you insane? Use TaskRabbit to find people in your area who are willing to tackle odd jobs. All users come verified and insured by TaskRabbit, so there’s very little risk of being scammed, and you can browse listings at your leisure to find someone in your neighborhood or price range.

2. 24me

24me has been hailed as the “next-generation personal assistant,” and when you see all that it can do, it’s hard to argue. 24me is basically an organizational tool that you can use for everything in your life, including paying bills, creating schedules, sending birthday cards and setting up appointment reminders. You’ll be a much more organized and confident person with the power of 24me in your hands.

3. Digit

It can be difficult to curb your spending, especially if you’re young and unused to managing your own money. This is where Digit can really make a difference. It’s an FDIC-insured app that connects to your bank account to help you save instead of spend, and it comes with a variety of options like automatic savings account transfers and self-imposed cutoffs if you’re running low on funds.

4. Postmates

When you’re in a hurry, Postmates is the way to get things done. They’ll deliver everything from groceries to cellphone chargers to whatever address that you specify, and their promise is “one hour or less.” Do you need a quick dinner for the kids? Are you lost without a paddle if you don’t get those ink cartridges for your boss by lunchtime? Instead of stressing, use Postmates to outsource the problem.

5. Evernote Scannable

If the bottom of your bag is a mess of receipts, coupons, notes, contracts and business cards, Evernote Scannable is the app for you. It will scan any paper document and archive its image for future review, so you won’t have to hang on to physical copies of old paperwork. It even has options for creating, organizing and emailing PDFs, so you can use the app to share important documents with ease.

These are just a few apps that can make your life a little easier. There are many more, of course, such as NYC home cleaning service but these should be enough to get you started on a simpler and more productive life. Good luck!
