There may not be enough hours in a day for the typical entrepreneur, but there are plenty of apps that can help improve efficiency and boost productivity. Here are a few of our personal favorites:
- Evernote. Entrepreneurs wear different hats for different occasions. The ubiquitous Evernote is an excellent way to keep notes and documents organized and synced across all of your devices. (iOS and Android)
- Mailtracker. Ever wanted to know if that investor or prospect actually read the email you sent last week? Mailtracker can put that waiting and wondering to an end once and for all – now you can plan your next step without the wait. (iOS)
- Focus Lock. Tweets, likes, scores, news: The notifications (and distractions) are endless. Focus Lock allows you to block all of them during critical work periods while still allowing you to make calls and check emails. (Android)
- Expensify. Keeping track of expenses and generating expense reports are some of the most tedious time-wasters for busy executives and startup founders alike. Whether you’re tracking employee expenses or personal write-offs, there are better ways to use your time. Expensify simplifies your expense tracking by letting you snap pictures of receipts, generate reports and more. (iOS, Android and Windows)
- Toggl. How much time are you actually spending on that one customer? Toggl is a timer for monitoring and recording your time. You can even filter your time spent by customer or project, making it great for freelancers too (iOS and Android).
- Annotary. Don’t let bookmarking and note-taking slow you down. Annotary allows you to bookmark, highlight, and make notes in a streamlined fashion. Share your notes with your team and save ideas with this handy app. (iOS)
- Hootsuite Hootlet. This web browser extension allows you to grab content from a web page and send it directly to Hootsuite. Keeping up your social media presence could not be easier. (Chrome and Firefox)
- Free Wi-Fi Finder. Make the most of your time between meetings by easily finding a spot to work. Free Wi-Fi Finder locates the closest location with public Wi-Fi access. (iOS and Android)
