Now that the New Year is upon us, most of us have gone into overdrive trying to organise our lives.
But of course, it's easier said than done and sometimes we wish we could have a personal assistant by our side to remind us how to operate (because we forgot sometimes).
Well, now it may be simpler than before as there are personal assistant apps to help you out. Just imagine a little Lloyd from Entourage in your life:
1. Google Now
According to the app store, Google Now is the "intelligent personal assistant". This app organises just about everything you can imagine and will give you assistance all day, everyday.
Your info is organised into personalised cards that will provide you with just about everything you need, without you having to spend time searching.
If Mark Zuckerberg uses it, then we might as well use it too. Quip is known to be one of the best apps out there and is pretty much the virtual office used by Facebook and Instagram. It allows users to collaborate with others on various documents, spreadsheets and checklists.
This is especially handy if your New Years Resolution is to get more organised in work.
If you love lists or simply need something to organise your thoughts, then Wunderlist is for you. The app organises your productivity and sets out classic to-do lists for each day/week.
You can also share lists with others, which is handy for organising nights out, family dinners, etc.
Speaktoit is pretty much Siri after she has been promoted. The app lets you make calls, send texts and search the web, all the while remembering everything from your favourites. All you have to do is, you've guessed it, speak to it.
It will answer all of your questions, perform tasks while your busy and even give you social media updates.
If you're a forgetful person, then this app will work as your second brain. It generates reminders for everything like important work meetings, girls nights out and even paying bills.
24me combines your calendar, to-do lists and notes all in one handy place. It also syncs with social media apps to send messages to your friends or give you reminders for important birthdays.
