by: Isabella Goode

As someone who’s had to juggle multiple jobs, as well as studying and trying to have a life, I understand how hard it can be to get everything done. Over recent years I’ve come to rely on my phone to help me to fit everything in and remember all the tasks I have to do.

If you want to find out more about how you can use your phone to organise your life and keep you on time and on task, read on.

Buy A Quality Phone

Relying on your phone only works if you know that it’ll constantly work and be able to handle all the different functions you want it to. Find a smartphone that’ll give you everything you need and has the battery life, storage capacity and functionality to support you as you work to keep everything together. Remember that you get what you pay for, so it’s important that you invest in the best so that you can constantly rely on your phone.

Figure Out What Functions It Has

As soon as you get a new phone, it’s tempting to just download everything you see in the app store that might be useful, but remember that your phone has in-built functions too. You’ll waste space and possibly money if you buy apps that you don’t need, so take the time to explore what your new device can do. Play around with your device and find out what it can and cannot do before you start enhancing it.

Work Out What You Need It To Do

Now that you know what your phone can do, you need to explore exactly what you want it to do so you can work out the disparity and find apps to fix it. Think long and hard about what you want your phone to be able to do for you and then write it down into a neat list so that you’re ready to add more apps that’ll make your phone the perfect organiser.

Find Apps To Fill The Gaps

If your phone can’t do something you need it to then find an app that will help. There are loads of different apps on the market, from creative calendar apps through to apps that’ll help you keep your guitar in tune. For basic business tasks there are a load of different apps available so that you can take care of everything from your accounts to communicating with various team members. As a result, anyone can easily integrate their phone into their professional life as well as their personal one.

Log In To All The Accounts You Need

The easiest way to keep yourself organised is to have all the information you need in one place, and this involves logging in to the accounts you use the most, such as social media sites, communication platforms and payment apps. Log in on your phone and configure your settings so that the apps and accounts can all sync and share information, allowing you to easily combine their functions and make the most out of your phone.

Secure Your Phone

As you’re going to have lots of accounts and apps open and running on your phone, it’s important that you keep it safe, both physically and online. Set a password on the device itself so that you can keep it secure should someone try to take it or snoop about. To stop hackers from accessing your data online, particularly when you’re using less-secure open Wi-Fi networks, it’s important that you install an antivirus software solution or app. You should examine each solution and the features it has to offer before you buy and install it so that your device is completely safe and will be protected in the future, no matter what the cybersecurity world throws at you and your phone.

Keep It Charged

Using so many different functions will take its toll on your phone’s battery, so make sure that you always keep a charging cable with you to charge your phone when you need to. If you’re concerned about not having anywhere to plug your phone in then buy yourself a portable power bank so that you can top your phone’s battery up wherever you are.

Using your phone to organise your life is a great way to make the most out of the functions your device has and carry everything you need with you at all times. It can be tough, but I hope these tips help you!
