As business owners, we know how hard it is to be your own boss. The most difficult thing is managing your time in order to get things done successfully. Here are 10 favorite time management apps that will boost your productivity and help you work smarter!
A few apps in our top 10 best time management apps are list managers. Each one is a little bit different and will help in different ways. Try them out and see which one works best for your process.
Your phone likely comes with a reminders app. This great time managment app will allow you to keep track of all sorts of items and lists, works with Google Assistant or Siri for when you are on the road and can't type and also provides the ability to have your phone remind you when you are leaving or arriving at a location.

Clear is an wonderful organizer app that is perfect for those of us that constantly have a lot of tasks on our to do lists, especially if they change priority often. It has separate lists available that have a beautiful ombre effect. It's also perfect if you have a Mac and iOS device in order to keep them all synced together.
Dropbox is one of my favorite productivity tools for storing and sharing documents and photos online. You can share folders of images with friends and clients, share images and files with those you work with, and easily collaborate on projects.
The Dropbox phone app allows you to access all of this on the go. You can use it to share portfolio images and pricing files with prospective clients, too.
If looking at a schedule of your day and seeing it broken out into periods of time is the best way to keep track of your day, Toggl is going to be amazing an amazing time management app for you. Especially if you do work hourly for others, this is a great way to keep track of everything that you do.

Having a different password for every application and login is very important these days and also a major paint to keep track of. Almost everything we do requires one and we have many of them that we enter everyday!

You can also create routines to automate your smart home devices as well as view and edit shopping and to-do lists on the go, get weather and news updates, manage timers and alarms. You can even use multiple Alexa devices as a two-way intercom.
If Google Chrome devices are your preference, then this app is for you. With the Google Home app, you can set up, manage and control your Google Home and Chromecast devices.
