  • For Finances: Spendee.

As long as you can muster up the discipline to input every single transaction into the Spendee app, you never need any other finance tracker. The app lets you put in locations where you spent (or collected) money, add notes on each transaction, create budgets — all in a detailed, easy-to-understand way. It is available on iOS and Android.

  • For reading: Pocket. 

Personally, I still have several articles on my Pocket that I haven’t gotten to yet. There is just way too much content out there and not enough time to consume it all. Simply save that article or video to Pocket and you can go back to it anytime and on any device, which means you never miss an interesting piece even if you don’t have time to read it at that moment. It’s available on Web, iOS and Android.

Manage multiple social media accounts with Hootsuite. play

You can manage as much as three social media accounts (across Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn) via Hootsuite. You can also schedule posts and also get info on engagement and other metrics within the app as well. Hootsuite is available on Web, iOS and Android. 

These are just a fews apps to get you started (the best of the bunch, really). There are so many other apps and tools that you can take advantage of when being an adult starts to get out of control.
