More Awesome Apps for Career Girls

Posted November 1, 2012 by Marcy Twete in Life After Five

A few months ago, we brought you “Techie Time Savers for Women in Business” – a list of the best apps, websites, and other resources that can make your life easier. So imagine our excitement when The Glass Hammer published its own list of “Best Apps for Busy Women.” There’s never enough time in the day, and we love any apps that can make your life easier, less busy, and better!

Here are a couple of our favorite highlights from The Glass Hammer’s list:

Have you heard of the Pomodoro technique? It is a way of maximizing your productivity by attacking your tasks in 25-30 minute increments and then taking short breaks. This stops you from getting fatigued or bored and makes your large tasks much more manageable. You can use this technique to make yourself more efficient at household tasks, writing, answering emails or other tasks. The PomodoroPro App helps you to time yourself and stay on track.

For those who have a lot of things on the go and are very serious about time management, OmniFocus is a super tool. It gives users the option of tracking tasks by person, place or project as well as creating subroutines such as shopping lists, home chores and much more. This is one of the more expensive apps, but it can also be used on the desktop and is intuitive and very easy to use.

Download these puppies today, Career Girls. And check out The Glass Hammer’s full list for other ideas to make your life easier.
