Sometimes you need more than a to-do list. You need help developing a strategy to tackle the list. EasilyDo is a free app that organizes your tasks and notifies you about what matters most, so you can stay on top of things. The app promises: "Less work, less worry and more time for you." We know, that's a mighty tall order. But in a practical sense, the app cleans up your contact list by consolidating duplicates and adding new contacts to your phone easily. The app also will notify you of bad weather and check out your city's traffic. So it can remind you to take an umbrella and tell you to leave a half hour early for your business meeting because there's an accident on the highway.
And you don't have to tell anyone about this, but your new "smart assistant" can also set up automatic birthday and anniversary greetings. You just have to remember to say "You're welcome" when friends and family applaud your thoughtfulness.
There's also a slate of premium executive-type organizational functions for a monthly fee of $4.99 or annual $49.99 that will help you with travel plans and prioritizing emails. Available for Apple and Android devices.
