Are you tired of wishing you had more time for your busy life? We found 6 apps to help keep you better organized, that are not only free but compatible with most devices!

1) Feedly -FREE
Compatible with computers, Windows 8, iOS, Android, Windows Phones, BlackBerry
Good for: Organizing various content

Feedly is an app that allows users to have all their different content stored in one place. It’s a great way to check news in the morning on the way to work. Feedly is very easy to personalize and lets users combine articles from all different platforms, like news, film updates, fashion news and new DIY ideas. It’s almost like a condensed newspaper right on your phone or laptop.

2) Viber- FREE
Compatible with computers, Windows 8, iOS, Android, Windows Phones, BlackBerry, Bada, Nokia
Good for: Video calling and group messaging

Viber is a video calls and group messaging app that can be used internationally. It works on cell phones but also synchs with PCs and Macs, and allows for free calls. Users’ contacts can be synched right to the app, which makes it easy to get in touch with others. Viber can be especially useful to keep in touch with family, friends and even business associates when traveling.

3) Pocket- FREE
Compatible with computers, iPhones, iPads, Android phones, Kobo
Good for: Collecting online content

Have you ever read something online and didn’t have a way of saving it? Pocket allows users to take articles, photos, videos, or almost anything from apps like Twitter, and save them directly to a Pocket account. All saved information can be accessed on the Pocket account on phones, tablets or computers without any Internet connection. This is a convenient way to stay updated on current events.

4) RescueTime Lite- FREE
Compatible with Mac, PC, Android, Linux
Good for: Increasing productivity

RescueTime tracks time spent on certain websites and applications in order to help its users spend their time more productively. It allows users to set goals, and even sends them a weekly email report on their activity. Users have the ability to pause or quit RescueTime whenever they choose. This is especially important for those who are busy and need to cut down wasted time. With RescueTime, any working gurl can separate work from play.

5) Wunderlist- FREE
Compatible with Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, Chromebook, Windows phone, Windows 8
Good for: Making to-do lists

Wunderlist is a simple way to keep track of the many to-do lists in life – whether it’s for work or life at home. Users can make multiple lists, and even share these lists with friends or family. Wunderlist allows users to access their lists from their phone, tablets and computers. Lists made with Wunderlist can also have pictures, PDFs and presentations. It also has a feature that allows to-do lists to be assigned to different people, which could be especially beneficial for group projects in a work environment.

6) IFTTT- FREE
Compatible with iOS and Android
Good for: Automatic online actions

IFTTT, short for “if this then that,” is an app that allows cell phone users to create functions, or “recipes” which carry out certain actions automatically. For example, every time a user is tagged in a picture on Facebook, IFTTT can send this user a text message or email. IFTTT can do this with multiple “channels,” including Facebook, Evernote, Email, LinkedIn and more. This is especially helpful, because it can save a busy person tons of time because of automatic updates, rather than manually checking other platforms. IFTTT can be turned off at any time, and when it’s turned back on, the “recipes” will continue to work as they had before.

Which of these apps do you think you’ll use? Let us know in the comments below!
