Apps to help adult management
Adult life can have its hiccups along the way – juggling a work schedule, gym membership and social life can be exhausting. But thankfully, help is at hand. Your smartphone could be the key to keeping your life on track. The following apps could be the solution you’ve been waiting for to keep your adult management under control.
7 Minute Workout
The majority of us want to have the perfect body but realistically, work commitments, social lives and daily chores can get in the way, leaving little time to hit the gym. And if you are paying an arm and a leg for a gym membership that you don’t use, is it really worth it? Probably not. The 7 Minute Workout could be the perfect solution for you.
The app does what it says on the tin – each workout lasts just seven minutes. Each exercise also lasts just 30 seconds with 10 second rest periods. It sounds easy, but it’ll quickly have you working up a sweat. It’s perfect for incorporating more exercise into your hectic lifestyle.
True Potential Investor
For many of us, putting money aside for the future is a great thought but sometimes seems out of reach. However, True Potential Investor, brought to you by shares ISA provider True Potential, makes it easier for you to set up and manage your investments directly from your smartphone.
With the self-directed investment service, you can set yourself goals, manage budgets and invest direct from the app. Investment profiles with differing levels of risk are available to suit your individual preference*.
*With investing, your capital is at risk. Investments can fluctuate in value and you may get back less than you invest. Tax rules can change at any time.
Out of Milk
The grocery shop can be more difficult than it seems – especially if you live in a busy household. When you’re at the supermarket and have checked all of the essentials off your shopping list, you may then get home and find your housemate has bought some of the same items. No one wants to get home to find three loaves of bread and 24 eggs. Instead, download Out of Milk.
The app provides a platform that lets you create a digital shopping list that your friends and family can add to or check off any items they buy. It updates almost instantaneously, avoiding any grocery duplication!
Despite our best efforts, some of us struggle with keeping everything organised. Whether you’re sorting through receipts or making sense of your business contacts, Evernote Scannable is a must-have app. Transforming your smartphone camera into a document scanner, you can create digital versions of your most important records, so you’ll always have them to hand.
Additionally, if you scan a business card, the app automatically creates a contact on your device with the information. It can also pull in business data from LinkedIn, allowing for a more comprehensive address book.
