Getting Organized in the New Year

Whether we tell anyone or not, we all make New Year’s resolutions. While getting fit is usually at the top of the list, getting organized is always a close second. The good news is there are a number of apps for your HTC smartphone that can help sort through the clutter and put an end to the information chaos.

Here are a few of our favorites. Let us know if we missed any of yours.

There are many apps for making task lists but Any.DO stands out for its style. With a simple interface, Any.Do offers easy organization and built-in syncing across all of your devices. Available on Android.



Magically find anything when you need it most with CloudMagic. You can search across Gmail, Google Apps, Facebook, Twitter, Evernote, Dropbox, Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, Google Docs, calendars, contacts, chats, cloud storage, and more. Available for Android and Windows Phone.


A personal favorite, Evernote makes it easy to jot down a quick note, save a video, record a thought, or clip an entire webpage. View and create notes from a phone, a web browser, or install on your computer.  All your notes are synced together making it easy to find everything you’re looking for, from any device you use. Available for Android and Windows Phone.


LastPass is a powerful password manager that keeps your information safely guarded in your password “vault.” It can also be used to auto-fill forms, secure notes, or as a password generator. LastPass can even enter login information for websites and apps on your device. Available for Android.


The days of having to remember, write-down, and dial audio conferencing details are gone. MobileDay streamlines conference calls when you’re on the go by integrating with your Google calendar, dialer, email, text messaging, and contacts to provide you with seamless, one-touch access from the comfort of your phone. Available for Android.


If you’re a habitual list maker using a Windows Phone, MyThings is the app for you. Create task lists with due dates, prioritize importance, and set reminders so you never miss a deadline. Available for Windows Phone.



Everyone knows Microsoft Office for your PC, but now you can get it exclusively for your Windows Phone. View and edit Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote docs with all the essential tools at your disposal, wherever you are, and then save them to your SkyDrive. Available for Windows Phone.


Pocket lets you save the content you like and come back to it later—be it text, videos or images. Your free account provides access your saved content from any device.

    Awesome list to keep everyone organized!

    Thank you Laura !

    Evernote is the most powerful multi-platforms notes app, and it’s my personal favorite!

    It has an awesome widget with different sizes and two color themes to select from!

    I set mine to dark theme, 4×2 size, “Recently viewed” look!

    Very useful when I park and I need to remember the level and place!

    I just grab a photo and post it onto my permanent Note “Parking” !

    CloudMagic is something new! downloading as we speak, and it looks really promising 🙂

    Pocket – best of the best! I’ve never read webpages in so comfortable and elegant way. And it works on any mobile and desktop device. Best on tablets and smarts.
