MobileDay Favorites: 10 Mobile Apps Designed to Save you Time, Money, and Stress

MobileDay was created to make life easier for the busy professional. In the rapidly growing world of mobile apps, finding the right ones to save you time is essential. Here are ten time-saving apps we’ve found that are sure to increase your productivity:

The TripIt mobile app organizes all of your travel documents into one easily-accessible itinerary. Now your confirmation numbers, boarding times, and terminal numbers are all just a click away.

Pro-Tip: You can connect and sync your GateGuru account to TripIt or KAYAK for the ultimate personalized travel app experience.

Fancy Hands

Price: Various Monthly Plans
Download Mobile App: Apple iOS

FancyHands Mobile App Save Time Fun App

Fancy Hands caught our attention last month when it was featured on techcrunch. The concept is unique – its an app that acts as your personal assistant. Fancy Hands allows you to type or leave a voice message instructing a member of their team to tackle any number of life’s tedious tasks (such as scheduling an oil change, making dinner reservations, or finding a new doctor and setting up an appointment). The app is free, but the service is based on a flat monthly fee, ranging from $25 to $65 depending upon the number of requests.

Mint.com

Price: Free
Download Mobile App: Apple iOS / Android

Mint.com Mobile App Money Saving Save Time Saving iPhone Application

If Fancy Hands is your personal assistant, the Mint.com app is your personal accountant. It compiles balances, transaction history, and other financial information from all of your accounts and organizes it all into one place. It will also suggest ways for you to save money and send you automatic alerts (like bill reminders) via text or email. If security is a concern, fear not – Mint.com uses 128-bit SSL encryption and all data is protected and validated by VeriSign and TRUSTe.

Waze

Price: Free
Download Mobile App: Apple iOS / Android

Waze Mobile App GPS Navigation Social Time Saving App

Waze is revolutionizing the way people use GPS services. In addition to turn-by-turn navigation, Waze offers a social experience, where people can share real-time road and traffic updates. The app has a game-like appeal by incorporating a scoreboard system, enabling its users to level up from a “Waze baby” to “Waze royalty.” The company utilizes user input to update its servers daily – a development brought to light when a White House representative asked Waze to push notifications about gas stations to New Yorkers struggling to find gas during Hurricane Sandy. The company then asked its users for updates, prompting an enormous rate of responses. Whether your tired of your iPhone’s navigation or you just want a more exciting GPS experience, we highly suggest downloading this app.

Evernote

Evernote Mobile App Sticky Note Reminder Text Voice Snapshot Save Time Organize Productivity

Named a “Top 10 Must-Have App” by the New York Times, Evernote is a great tool for increasing productivity and personal organization.This app lets you take notes, snap photos, record voice memos, and create lists – it then saves all of this information into an organized, searchable database. Even cooler, the app uses cloud storage, allowing you to sync and access the data from any device.

TurboScan

For $1.99, TurboScan turns your phone into a scanner, allowing you to avoid the cost, bulk, and hassle of a traditional machine. After taking a picture of the document and cropping the image frame, TurboScan uses a feature called “perspective adjustment” to generate a high quality digital image. The app also offers a feature called “SureScan 3x” which has you take three photos of the document to produce an even higher quality image.

WiFi Finder

WiFi Finder Mobile App Free Wireless Internet Save Time saving

The name is pretty self explanatory on this one. JiWire Inc developed a world-wide database for free and paid public WiFi hotspots. It is location-enabled, so you can find nearby hotspots, and it will differentiate between the free and paid locations using pins on a map. To make it more convenient, the app also lets you filter your search by provider or venue type.

FastCustomer Mobile App Save time Customer Service Waiting time-saving

Rejoice! The wait is over!

Even without the app, Easy Customer offers a number that you can text a company’s name to and the respective customer service rep will call you back. Download this app and never waste time on hold again.
