Clear

This task management application uses gesture-based motions to create a powerful task manager with simple, intuitive controls. First, you create your tasks list and then you manage them with various gestures. Adjust items by pulling them down the screen. Swipe them off the screen when they are completed. Pinch them to move them around and assign them to different employees. You can also create separate lists for separate groups or people. These lists can be synced with all your Apple devices.

RescueTime

It can be difficult to understand where you can be more efficient with your time. With RescueTime you can track all the time you spend on websites and applications. It sends you a detailed report so that you can see how and where you spend the majority of your time. The app is free with this great feature, but you can pay for more premium features as well. These premium features include site-blocking, alerts, and filters so that you can make the most out of your workday.

Expensify 

Doing expense reports can be time-consuming. It can be difficult to remember and report all your expenses. When you use Expensify, you can link to your debit or credit card so that all charges automatically get added to an expense report. If linking your card information makes you uncomfortable, you can also take pictures of your receipts using Expensify and the app will automatically extract the relevant information and compile it into an expense report. The app is a big time saver for entrepreneurs who are constantly on the go and don’t have time to create expense reports. Expensify gives you an accurate look at what you are spending on expenses and does all the paperwork for you.
