Nowadays it’s rare to see someone not using a mobile phone. Our cell phones have become such a huge part of our lives, and in many ways they have made our daily activities more convenient and less stressful. Besides using my phone for communication every day, I use several applications on my cell phone daily. Here are a few mobile apps that make my life so much easier.
If you haven’t used Waze, you are really missing out! Like Google Maps or the iPhone maps application, Waze gives users directions from point A to point B. What Waze does that the other apps do not is the real reason I use Waze. This app lets users comment and share information through the app to tell other users traffic updates, accidents, cops’ locations and more. For example, if an accident occurs, a user near the scene can suggest alternative routes or inform other users of possibly delays. Quite possibly my favorite thing about this app is that it syncs with my phone’s calendar and tells me when to leave my current location to get to my next appointment on time. This app has saved me so many times when I have been consumed by work in my office, and didn’t realize that I need to leave the office ASAP to make my next meeting.
It is no secret that we are huge fans of Kyocera here at BRDP, but this particular app has been a game changer in my daily activities. Simply put, this app allows you to print or scan from your mobile device virtually anywhere. Printing from my phone has allowed me to eliminate unnecessary steps, save time and become much more efficient throughout the workday. If your job requires you to be on the go often, Kyocera Mobile Print can definitely be useful to you too!
Quite frankly, Evernote is a lifesaver. From my kid’s schedules, to my business information, to my social calendar—everything is in Evernote. One of the many reasons I use this app is because I can keep everything in one place. For business in particular, Evernote is extremely useful in my communication with my clients. I create a folder for each of my clients on the app, and I save anything and everything associated to that client to that folder. I can attach documents, emails, websites, photos and more. I never have to search through emails or look anywhere else for documents for clients because Evernote keeps everything easily accessible and in one place!
