Mint – www.mint.com

Dropbox – www.dropbox.com


Dropbox is a free service that let’s you store all your files high in the sky, excuse us in the “cloud” – online-based secure storage that can be accessed from any computer or mobile device. It also allows for easy sharing of entire folders without the hassle of emailing files one by one. Essential for daily workflow. 

Remember The Milk – www.rememberthemilk.com


This app manages personal to-do lists and work-related tasks, sending reminders via email, text message and instant message on one’s mobile phone. Keep yourself in the loop and get well-deserved rest on the weekend looking at all the checked boxes.

HootSuite – www.hootsuite.com


HootSuite is a social media management system for businesses and organizations to schedule messages to any social channel, monitor retweets and replies easily and keep engagement levels high. A major feature helping you is Autoschedule: have you thought about what your audience is doing on social media this weekend? Well, if you have set up messages ahead of time, they will be reading them and engaging with your brand while you sleep. Oh the online dream!

And the +1 that we can’t live without:

LastPass – www.lastpass.com


LastPass will securely store all your passwords under a master password and let’s you log in from anywhere and any device. Sounds scary? It isn’t. Security standards are tight and monitored 24/7. LastPass has been voted numerous times the best password storage system today.
