Hate to answer e-mail? Set a specified length of time, set the timer, and perform the task for the allotted amount of time. The app will tell you when you’ve completed the task and are ready to move on to the next one. Set tasks as simple as a work/break cycle (the app gives the example of 50 minutes of work and a 10-minute break), or as complex as mapping out your entire day. The interface is attractive and easy to use, with bright colors and gestures like swiping and tapping to interact with the app. The app uses icons for tasks (a paw print for dog-walking, the Facebook icon to check your account, a coffee cup for a break, for example). Our favorite use for the app is as an aid to help with projects we keep putting off – schedule it in bite-sized pieces of five or 10 minutes throughout the day, and the project is finished before you know it! Cost: Free.

ZocDoc®

Choosing the right doctor can be a time-consuming and painstaking process. We ran across the ZocDoc app recently and were impressed by its ease of use and appointment feature. Simply enter your zip code and insurance carrier, then view a list of doctors by specialty, as well as their available appointments. You can even book an appointment through the app, and ZocDoc will notify you about any upcoming appointments. One of ZocDoc’s newest features is a Well Guide, which helps users learn about and schedule preventive cares. We also like that there is a rating system and patient reviews of the doctors. Cost: Free.
