Cramming everything into a notebook can be tedious (and messy) at times. Which is why mobile apps come in handy to help us get organized. From managing projects to saving ideas, these free mobile apps can help you stay productive while having everything together in one place.

1. Plan and manage projects with Trello

If you’re working on a few different projects at the same time, Trello is a great platform where you can keep it all together. Begin a new project by creating a “board” and create cards to type out your to-do list, notes and save attachments. Manage your projects better and stay efficient by classifying each project and color coding them. Check it out here.

2. Track your finances with Mint

This app is like a digital financial planner that keeps tabs on your transactions and sorts your purchases into categories. All you have to do is to enter your banking and credit card information. With Mint, you can set goals for your savings, keep an eye on your credit score and tabulate budgets. Find it here.

3. Organize your photos with Google Photos

If your phone memory is running low, store your photos on Google Photos. The app allows you to classify them neatly which makes it easier to find if you’re ever looking for a particular photo. The best part is that you have unlimited storage, which comes in pretty handy if you’re a mobile shutterbug! Check it out here.

4. Save great ideas on Pinterest

Instead of pinning clothes that you’ll never buy, use Pinterest for saving doable recipes or D.I.Y. projects that you’ve been meaning to try. You can even go as specific as you want with your boards, thanks to the plethora or ideas that you can find on Pinterest. Also, you can now write a review on a pin that you’ve actually tested, which is a great way to share information or to learn new tips from other pinners. Find it here.

5. Cross off your to-do list with Any.do

For those who get a kick out of crossing items off your list, you can do the same with Any.do! Instead of lugging a notebook and pen, this app allows you to simply swipe right once you’ve completed a task. You can also shake your phone for the completed tasks to disappear. Colour code, share tasks with people (a.k.a. grocery lists with your housemates) and pin your list to your home screen. Check it out here.

6. Travel like a pro with TripIt

Traveling is great but it can be even better when you have everything in place. TripIt takes everything you need to travel (boarding passes, hotel bookings, etc) and organizes it into one spot. Set reminders, import your travel data and have everything ready before you begin your adventure! Find it here.

7. Get super organized with Evernote

Write your ideas, upload and save attachments, insert pictures and videos and automatically sync your notes with your smartphone and computer so that you can work on your project wherever you are. If you’re ever stuck waiting for the train, you can now work on that blog post that you’ve been meaning to write! Find it here.
