They sync their calendars
Costello recommends mobile calendar apps like iCalendar, Google Calendar, and Outlook to synchronize your tasks and information between your phone and computer, making it easy to stay on top of your schedule on the go. These applications also let you store contact information, add notes, and set event reminders, eliminating the need to carry around address books, notepads, and planners, too. These are the organizing tips you’ll wish you knew all along.
They keep the whole family on top of things
Keeping track of your own schedule can be tricky enough, but add a whole family into the mix and things are bound to get a little disorganized. Fortunately, your smartphone can save you. Costello recommends Cozi, an app that lets you oversee each family member’s individual appointments, activities, and chores, so you never have to miss a soccer game or talent show again.
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.
