If you rely on your smartphone to help you find your way to a destination or answer your impromptu questions, you already know how handy it can be. But with so many apps on the market, it’s sometimes hard to figure out which ones would be best for you. Following are four apps that can help you out in a pinch:
1. Find a seat
Ever been in an unfamiliar area, trying to find a bathroom? Charmin’s SitOrSquat app is like Google Maps for restrooms – you can search for nearby facilities and read user reviews. You can even specify certain amenities like a baby changing table or a family bathroom to ensure your destination will have everything you need .
2. Get it together
If you’ve ever lived with roommates, you know that sometimes, they forget what’s yours and what’s theirs. With the Digital Locker home management app, you can keep track of your belongings by creating labels, separating items by rooms and categories, and sorting by photograph or value. These lists become immensely helpful in the event that you have to file a claim on your homeowners insurance or renters insurance when your items become damaged, missing or perhaps destroyed in the next zombie apocalypse.
3. Improve access
These days, it’s fairly common to use multiple technological devices to store and access your most important files. By now, you’ve probably even gotten used to the method of emailing documents to yourself for easy access to all of your devices. But every once in a while, you may realize you’ve stored a document on another device and can’t access it when you need it right away. With Dropbox, you can keep all of your files in sync and fully accessible from various computers and other devices from virtually any location. Whether its documents, spreadsheets, photos or even videos, Dropbox comes with an extensive capacity that your flash drive just can’t compete with.
4. Find it fast
If it takes you more than a minute to scroll through all of the notes stored on your default notes app, it may be time to organize with Evernote. Grocery lists, birthday reminders, receipts, articles – store them in Evernote, so you can quickly find what you need. And you can share notes with friends, family or colleagues, which is an especially useful feature if you need someone to go grocery shopping on your behalf.

Use your phone to get organized, stay organized and simplify your life. The apps mentioned here are just a small sample of the many useful apps on the market today, so start exploring, and find the perfect app for your needs.
