If you’re like most Americans, you probably can’t imagine life without your smartphone. With their endless capabilities and built-in functions like synced calendars and email, it’s hard to imagine life without a smartphone. If you find it difficult to keep track of all of the information stored in your phone, these 4 great apps will help you stay organized. Best of all, they’re all free!
Evernote provides a convenient and flexible space to store all of your notes, from handwritten memos to screenshots of recently paid bills. Information automatically syncs to the cloud, so you’ll never have to worry about going without your most important notes. Available for both iOS and Android, the app includes built-in organizational features that make it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for.
The Google Drive app provides cloud storage and a range of office applications, including Google Sheets, Google Docs, and Google Photos. The app comes with 15 GB of free storage, but more can be purchased as needed.
If you need a phone that acts as your personal assistant, the free Google Now app will help make it happen.

We know how impossible it can be to keep track of all of your different personal passwords on all of your different devices. LastPass is a convenient way to keep your most sensitive personal information organized and secure. Your passwords will be saved automatically and will be kept safe even when autofill is used. It can also generate hard-to-hack passwords for you when you sign up for a new account. While there is a monthly fee for syncing between devices, the mobile-only version is free, so if you do a lot of transactions on your phone then you’ll do just fine without spending a dime. For corporate environments and passwords, please speak with your IT department before utilizing LastPass for anything work related.
