Busy moms have days filled with to-do lists and deadlines to beat.
Luckily, the tech universe has given us a lot of apps for successful working moms we should be thankful for. They help us stay on top of all our errands and tasks. So I’m rounding up all of the best mobile apps that have helped me manage my daily tasks. I picked the ones that are free so you can download them right away if you think they could make your life simpler.
Messengers (Viber, Telegram, and Whatsapp)
This makes me accessible. When you run a business, the first thing you would always want is to be efficient. And to be efficient, communication is the key. Telegram is my most busy app. I would receive messages from 20 groups in just 2-3 hours. Think about how many messages I need to attend to every day. If I miss one of them, how can I make things work?
I can easily access on all devices and it’s always updated. I tried so many note apps to keep me updated but it’s just not as efficient and effective as Evernote. With this app, I can send a document via chat or email and attach photos. It keeps me more organized because I can group together notes in individual notebooks.
I can make and edit memorable videos of my wander adventures with Kyle and Paul.
When I first went into business, I did not bother using this app. I would prefer storing all reminders and information in my memory. And one day, my brain gave up. There was a time where I jumbled my schedule and I didn’t even tell my EA thinking I can handle everything just fine. This app is such a hero. I get meeting or event invites from my contact or I would manually set all my schedules here. It made my life easier accepting appointments and plotting schedules.
There are countless moments when you just need your child to stay quietly in one place. In my case, this is a necessity – for Kyle’s sake and mine. But as moms, we already know our kids won’t just sit still without a little prodding. This is when Netflix helps.
Yes, I shamelessly let Kyle watch TV on some days. Not all movies and TV shows, however, are created equally. I’m very picky about what Kyle can watch. That’s why we decided to cut the cord – no cable in our house. We use Netflix instead because it lets me pick shows that teach Kyle good things. It’s also easier for the Yaya to know which ones are allowed for Kyle to watch. No chance for cheating because I can monitor.
It’s also helpful when we’re travelling and there’s no reliable Internet connection available. What I do is download the shows Kyle prefer a few days before the trip.
My lifesaver when YouTube or Netflix is not available especially when we travel. Kyle, being a toddler, has those moments where he is just too hyper and unstoppable. This app keeps Kyle busy whenever wherever. I can play offline nursery rhymes and story books anytime.
We mompreneurs have a lot to keep track of. And if your New Year’s resolutions include never forgetting an important school event ever again, you definitely need to be more organized in 2017 and beyond. Check out these apps that I recommend for busy mompreneurs.
