5 apps that keep you organized

Liane Cassavoy | Sept. 3, 2014
One of the best ways to stay productive is to stay organized. After all, more work gets done when you do away with the distractions. Distractions like trying to remember what needs to be done--and when it needs to be done. Or where your files are. Or what your passwords are. Here are five apps that can help.


Sometimes, the tasks involved with day-to-day life manage to distract us from work. Thinking about who's going to weed your lawn, pick up your dry cleaning, or assemble your next desk isn't going to help you get your work done. Instead of worrying about how you'll manage all of it, outsource it with TaskRabbit. Available on the web and as an app for Android and iOS, TaskRabbit lets you post a task that you need help with and shows who in your area is available to help you and how much they'll charge. TaskRabbit screens all taskers by verifying their identity and checking criminal records.


You probably have more passwords than you can possibly keep track of mentally. That's why a password manager like Dashlane can come in handy. This online tool, also available as an app for Android and iOS, stores your passwords for you, freeing your brain from the taxing job of remembering them. Dashlane is easy to use and free in either the web or mobile version, but syncing data between devices costs $20. That may seem steep, but it's a small price to pay for lightening the load of all that stuff you need to remember.
