4 FREE Productivity Apps I’m Loving! #VZWbuzz

apps I love

by Melissa Stewart

I don’t know about you but my phone is my best friend (don’t be jealous coffee, you know you’re the love of my life)! I can’t remember life without it and I’m constantly finding new apps to improve work productivity, back up my important files,  de-clutter my world, and organize your desktop!

Here’s a list of 4 FREE apps I’m currently loving:





Trello is the free, flexible, and visual way to organize anything with anyone.

Whether you’re working alone or as part of a team, Trello offers an easy yet powerful way to organize tasks, lists, and projects. No matter which platform you access it from, your data remains synced and looks the same to every user who sees it. Trello uses an intuitive whiteboard and notecard interface for task management, offering checklists, commenting, labels, attachments, notifications, and activity logs, as well as the ability to assign tasks to team members.

Expense Reports (and tracking) that Don’t Suck!

If logging and managing expenses is all you need, a simple app like Expensify can get the job done without costing you a dime. From your Android or iOS device, Expensify makes it easy to snap photos of a receipt, which it then quickly analyzes in order to extract the relevant details and put them (along with an actual image of the receipt) into your records. It has other handy features, too, like the ability to track and log mileage using your phone’s GPS, and the data is always available on any device you sign into as well as via its Web-based application.

The “I can’t find my flight number” travel organizing app!

TripIt is a must-have app for anyone who travels. Once you sign up for the free service, all you do is forward any travel-related emails — airline confirmations, hotel reservations, even concert ticket receipts or dinner reservation confirmations — to a special email address, and TripIt automatically organizes them into trip-based itineraries.
For $49 a year, you can upgrade to TripIt Pro and get advanced features like real-time flight monitoring and alerts and a one-tap way to find alternate flight plans from your phone midtrip. TripIt also has an enterprise-level plan for organizations that want to implement its services company-wide.

Any.do helps you move forward by syncing your daily life, work tasks, and personal goals so you have a clear perspective for moving forward.

Any.do offers a solid all-around list-centric experience, and Android users get bonus features like the ability to turn a missed call directly into a reminder. Regardless of your platform, the service provides all the basic organizational tools you’d expect, including shared lists, folder-based organization, and calendar-like alerts for important tasks. It syncs with Google’s Tasks system, too, so you can access it from Gmail as well as from Any.do’s own Web interface.

    Your comments said Any.do syncs with Google Tasks. This feature was removed so have they replaced it? If so, which version.
