Four Apps to Help Organise Your Life

As a parent or parent-to-be, you’ll often find yourself with a gazillion things to juggle each day. We’ve found four user-friendly apps that can help you stay organised amidst the chaos…

1. Doodle

As a new parent, making time for a social life – let alone making the time to plan one – can be tough. Doodle solves this problem by cutting out the endless back and forth to find a date that works for you and your pals. Just set up an event, suggest possible dates and send out the invitation. You can even set up a poll within iMessage. Your friends then simply select the time they’re available and Doodle works out what time works best for all. You can even use it to select the venue or meet up point, simply enter the suggested locations into a poll and everyone can vote for their favourite. Playdate or catch up with  friends sorted!

Free to download on iOS and Android. Your friends don’t need to have the app for it to work.

2. AroundMe

This app is a godsend to all parents caught short in an area they are unfamiliar with. Need to find a petrol station quickly? How long to the nearest park? How far to the nearest bar (when you’re off the parenting clock, of course!)? AroundMe has all these answers and most importantly, can point you to the nearest toilets when your little one is in a pinch.

Available to download for free on iOS and Android.

3. Pocket

Can’t find that article you meant to revisit? Looking for the YouTube video you didn’t have a chance to watch before baby woke up yesterday? Next time, save it to your Pocket. So when you next have a minute to yourself, all the news articles and viral videos will be ready and waiting.

Available to download for free on iOS and Android.

4. Todoist

Just as it sounds, this app lets you create useful to-do lists, with a twist. Gone are the days of a shopping list written on the back of an old envelope. Todoist lets you and your family create shared lists, whether that’s this week’s shopping or tasks that need to be done around the house. The app will then let you see how everyone is progressing and notify you once the task is complete. You can also assign specific tasks, so no one ends up bearing the brunt of the workload. 

Available to download for free on iOS and Android.
