From work to play, we are constantly juggling a lot on our plates. As a freelancer, I am constantly juggling a large array of clients and projects. In order to stay on top of work, I have to constantly stay up to date on my organization. After work, how do I know the best deals? Where can I keep track of my calories? Apps are constantly changing and evolving with our improved technology. However, it's hard to keep track of the best ones. These apps can not only save time, but can help boost productivity, efficiency, and keep you organized.
