Files, emails, pictures, songs, tasks…the list of things we store on our phones and computers goes on and on. That doesn’t mean it needs to be chaos. Here is a list of our favorite apps that help us stay organized at work and at home.
CARROT is not for the faint of heart – “She” is a task manager with personality, and you keep her happy by getting things done in real life. The sadistic to-do list keeps us coming back everyday itching to check off another thing from our list. CARROT is now the first to-do list that gifts you a kitten as a reward for getting stuff done in real life. But slackers make CARROT upset, and you don’t want her to be upset. CARROT comes with a To-Do list, Alarm Clock, Fitness Tracker, Hunger Calorie Counter and Weather forecasts. It’s the best-worst app you’ll ever encounter. Price: $0.99
