Multi-tasking work and life with these secret app weapons for woman


Superwoman

Save time and stay productive getting from A to B

Whether it be from one meeting to another, or from the office to pick up the kids, it’s likely that on any regular day you have zero time to spare. Navigating traffic can sometimes set you back, but with an app like Waze, you’ll be able to avoid traffic jams and get to your destination with minimum delays. It’s a community-based app so it’s constantly uploading with real-time information while you drive. 

You also might be the kind of superwoman that finds yourself in the car all day dropping kids here, fetching them there and running all kinds of errands in between. Why not use the time in your car productively by brushing up on your literature and keeping your mind sharp? Audible is the ideal app for listening to your favourite book while you’re on the go or your have your hands busy! It has a huge range of books from business to romance and everything in between that are read out loud by gifted narrators (so they’re easy on the ear). 

Blinkist is another app that is designed with a busy schedule in mind. If you’re a woman who is particularly interested in non-fiction books like business, culture and self-improvement but doesn’t have the time or space to get stuck into some meaty reads, then this app is perfect for you. Blinkist summarises all the juicy, important concepts of a book that would normally take days and days to get through into just a couple of minutes. You can sign up and trial it for a month and from there you pay a subscription. 

 

Keeping the family in check

If you have a family on top of working a 9-to-5, or even just having a family, your day-to-day to do list no doubt keeps you on your toes. It’s useful to have a helping hand to remember everyone’s schedules, events, grocery lists and more. That’s where the Cozi app comes in and it’s the ultimate in family organisation. One of the awesome features of this app is the shared shopping list so everyone will always know whats needed from the store in case they happen to pop in themselves. With individualised schedules, no one will miss an important event or activity with reminders and and especially you can access the same information as the rest of the family from anywhere using your own login. 

Keeping the family in check may also mean staying on top of where they are on a daily basis. With one kid at a play date and the other on soccer tour, keeping track of everyone’s whereabouts is an important challenge for all superwoman out there. Add a crowded public place into the mix and finding ways of easily locating your kids becomes essential. Find My Friends is an app that allows you to easily locate friends and family on your contact list on a map when they accept your invitation to share a location. You are also able to share where you are if someone requests your location or set it up to send alerts when an individual arrives at a certain location.   

 

Get a virtual cooking sidekick

 

Being a superwoman and all that it entails may mean that you’re finding that you’re too busy to look for inspiration for weekly dinners. You just seem to be stuck on the good ol’ faithfuls like bangers and mash or the family’s favourite stir fry. Yummly is a nifty app that analyses info from your social media accounts or email and creates a customised feed on the app of recipes that it thinks you may like! It even includes nutritional information so that you can make sure your family has an overall healthy diet. It has cooking videos for you to watch to prepare the meals and the ability to add the ingredients to a shopping list. Now that’s what we call convenience!
