I’m all about shortcuts and saving time, which is why I absolutely love apps.  My co-workers and friends are always asking me which apps I like the best.  Here’s a bunch that I put together using a SkinnyScoop.com list generator.  Please add the ones that you’ve found that help you be more productive!

Free Stuff For Moms

Smartphones are one of the best tools busy people have at their fingertips. Using my iPhone is like a lifeline.  Sometimes I don’t know how I went grocery shopping or caught a bus without it! This tool is especially useful for moms — juggling it all!

I’ve tried many apps and have written about Astrid in the past because it’s such a spectacular to-do list app. The most unique thing about the Astrid app is that you can share your lists.  My friends and I share lists of things we have to remember to tell each other.  It’s great for making the most of our visits.

Astrid is doing a bit of sharing itself.  They’ve just announced a contest for moms!  All you have to do is use the app and tell them why you love it.  How has it made you more productive, successful and efficient? They are giving away gifts like spa certificates, onesies and premium accounts to the best answers.
