PRODUCTIVITY APPS

  1. Time Tree– The only calendar app I use and one I have come to love. It’s so easy and intuitive and I love having my tasks and calendar on the go. What’s best is that you can create shared calendars with your roomies, friends or even teams!
  2. Splitwise– The app that has saved me countless, “you owe me X and I owe you Y, so the net is X-Y” conversations. Life saver, and super good travel productivity hack. Allows you to create groups and even re-distribute expenses based on percentages.
  3. Trello– Great for the visual types. I have this both on my laptop and phone. I like being able to see my to-do lists and tasks and this is a great way to do that. It also allows you to set personal and professional boards so you can make as many boards as you like and share tasks, deadline, et al. Works really well for small businesses and start-ups too.
