Need to organize your to-do list?

January 18, 2016

Whether you're rushing between showing prospective buyers a home or organizing all the paperwork you need to complete your borrower’s loan application, one, or maybe more, of these applications could be the key ingredient in getting you to your goals faster.

Rather than having to navigate through the countless phone applications available to you, Inc. put together a list of the 75 apps that can save you time.

Some of them, like to-do list applications, may double up quite a bit, but peruse through them and find which ones apply to you. And trust me, they will.

Here are a few that might be game changers in your everyday life, along with two more that we suggest. 


When networking is the key to your business sometimes, it’s easy to quickly grow a pile of business card.

Photoscan, save, and organize your collection of business cards.


Between running around meeting clients and scheduling conference, life can get busy, and you can’t afford to miss any steps.

Set your schedule and get to work while TeuxDeux keeps you organized. If you don't manage to get everything done, your unfinished to-dos will be rolled over to the next day automatically.

Coffee Break:

We all can use a break, along an extra push to remind us.

Shuts down your screens temporarily so you can take a break.

Here are two others we find helpful.


This app is what happens when a map meets social media. It can save valuable time when you are trying to navigate a big city during rush hour. And as the saying goes, time is money. According to the app’s website, “Waze is the world's largest community-based traffic and navigation app. Join other drivers in your area who share real-time traffic and road info, saving everyone time and gas money on their daily commute.”


Especially if you’re a real estate agent or appraiser, driving around is an essential part of your everyday life. This app helps users keep track of their miles and expenses. And with tax season coming up, this app will help with the fine-print you need.

Here is the full list of Inc.’s app suggestions. And if you can your own favorite app that saves to you time, add it in the comments below.
