10 Free Apps That Make Life Easier

With over two million apps choose from, finding the right ones can be overwhelming. But look no further! I've sifted through articles, promo videos, websites and reviews to assemble a list of ten apps that every working woman needs. These apps are user-friendly, super-convenient and totally free!

1. Wunderlist

Wunderlist is a list-making and planning app. You can share lists and assign tasks, allowing multiple people to work together on a project. The app also allows you to add reminders, notifications, due dates and notes. Wunderlist is a great way to keep to-do lists, project plans, grocery lists and vacation plans all in one place.

2. TheSkimm

TheSkimm is an email newsletter that delivers a daily breakdown of the news. I love TheSkimm because it keeps me current on world news in a quick, easy-to-digest format. The app also offers additional "Skimm Guides" explaining everything from the Brexit to ebola to the MLB postseason for those looking to learn more.

3. Genius Scan

Genius Scan turns your phone into a scanner, allowing you to export documents in JPEG or multi-page PDF format. Submit expense receipts, send documents to the office and scan photographs using your phone. Genius Scan also features tools that allow you to organize and search your documents. 

4. Mint

Mint is a finance and budgeting app that helps you pay bills on time, make budgets and check your credit. It also alerts you of unusual charges and gives you customized tips for saving money. Don't worry, the app is well-secured to protect your privacy. 

5. Converter Plus

Converter Plus does exactly what you would expect. The app contains an extensive list of currencies and units (length, velocity, temperature, volume, etc.) to make conversion a breeze. It also includes features for calculating tips, gas mileage, interest rates, mortgages and more. 

6. Eve

Eve is the ultimate app for your period and sex life. It features all your typical period tracking features and provides information about contraception and sexual health. Eve also has a community feature where you can discuss issues with other women who have been there before.

7. WinStreak

WinStreak is a positivity-focused goal setting app where you can record your biggest "wins" at the end of each day and plan "wins" for tomorrow. The idea behind the app is to track your progress in positive terms rather than focusing on setbacks and challenges. 

8. SelfControl

Self Control is an app for Mac OS X that lets you block your own access to distracting websites and mail servers for a specific amount of time. You won't be able to access the blocked websites (even if you restart your computer or delete the app) until time is up, forcing you to focus on work. 

9. CamCard

CamCard is an app that scans and stores business cards so that you can access them on your phone. The app also has features allowing you to manage your contacts, set reminders and add notifications. CamCard can read cards in 16 languages. 

10. Key Ring

Key Ring is an app that consolidates all of your loyalty cards, rewards cards, ads and coupons in one place. You just scan your cards into the app using your phone's camera. The app also features location-based search functions for discounts and deals, as well as a shopping list function.
