Today, life is busier and more complex than ever before. Families have so much going on that it can seem overwhelming trying to keep up with it all. Everyday life is so incredibly busy that you must have complex schedules built into your smartphone or tablet just to get everything done. So, when things get extra complicated, such as during a move or when you own a home-based business, you may not be able to keep up with your schedule alone. Several companies have developed programs and tools for use on the computer or tablet to make these tasks easier. Take a look at a few popular programs and see if one may make your life a bit easier.
This is an application for the Apple iPad that helps make moving a bit easier. Sponsored by State Farm Insurance, the program provides everything you need when going through the stress of a move. The two main features are an interactive checklist, to make sure you don’t forget any steps along the way, and an inventory program. The inventory program allows you to enter the items you pack into your iPad and print labels for the boxes. Later, you can easily tell what’s inside the box by reading the label with any camera that has the ability to read bar codes. Moving may not be a fun task, but using MoveTools will at least help control some of the related stress.
One of the top names in the job search market has released a mobile program to make searching for a job even easier. Indeed Mobile is available for iPhone, iPad, Android devices and other web-enabled phones and tablets, making it an extremely flexible program. It offers all the benefits of the Indeed website including job searching and the ability to make contact with potential employers. As an added benefit, if you find a job you’re particularly interested in, you can email the complete listing to yourself or a friend to look at in depth later.
If you’re an entrepreneur or enjoy blogging for fun, you likely spend a lot of time tracking the hits you get on your website. There are different programs that help you keep up with different stats, but Ego brings all this data into one place. You can use Ego to check who has visited, where they come from and what they’re doing while they visit your website or blog. Ego is a program sure to save you time and energy you can use to add additional content to your page or spend on more enjoyable pursuits.
There’s no doubt about it: Life can be stressful sometimes. Without a method of organization, the stress can become overwhelming. Hopefully these apps can make everyday responsibilities easier to manage so that family time can be on the forefront of your mind.
