Newton: This app has lessened my email anxiety by filtering out newsletters to read later and allowing me to schedule emails to clients. It also alerts me when an email has
been read, which is great when you’re running a business!
Companion: I use Companion to let my friends and family
keep tabs on me as I travel. It gives them peace of mind
by letting them know I got back to my hotel safe.
TripIt: This app organizes my travel details in an itinerary
that I can reference again and again. I just forward all bookings to it via email and they magically show up in the app!
MailChimp: I like checking the health of my newsletter
lists in MailChimp, which doesn’t always warrant opening
up my laptop.
TunnelBear: My virtual private network (VPN) of choice
is TunnelBear, which keeps my network secure no matter
where I am. Having a VPN makes public Wi-Fi dramatically
less risky. Plus, the bear mascot is just so darn cute!
1Password: Using a password manager like 1Password
has changed my life. I no longer have those “Uh, what’s
my password?” moments because all my passwords are
unique and I only need to remember one to unlock them all.
Wire: I speak with my clients on Wire because it offers fully encrypted chat and video. It’s also light and airy, which
can’t be said about a lot of other chat programs.
Calm: I love everything about Calm because the meditation narrators have the most soothing voices. Just opening
the app transports me to a calmer place.
