They keep it simple
Even with all of these specialized apps at the touch of a finger, Mellen generally prefers to keep his smartphone organization routine simple with the pre-loaded iPhone Notes app. He uses Notes primarily for storing his clients’ information and typing out large chunks of texts to copy and paste elsewhere, but the clean, straight-forward design of the app is also useful for last-minute lists and quick reminders.

And with a large interface that takes up your entire phone screen, Costello says Timer on Fire is ideal for the visually-oriented.
