Thanks to the advent of the internet, solving problems is now easier than ever before.
Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it kind of is … The fact of the matter is that you’re busy, and you don’t have time to scour the web looking for solutions to everyday annoyances.
Luckily, others have already done the work to create tools that sell back time. Though by no means an exhaustive list, the solutions below will provide you with answers to everyday troubles so you can get more enjoyment out of life:
You’ve probably heard of password repositories, but maybe you haven’t used one yet. If you’re new to this part of the digital world, look no further than 1Password.
Their platform stores all of your login information and other sensitive data in one place. Of course, you will have to remember your password to access all of this data, but once you’re in, you can look at everything from your driver’s license number to your online banking login information.
Here are two unique things about the tool that make it better than the rest: first, it seamlessly integrates into your browser, so it can automatically log you into your saved sites; second, when you visit a new site, it can generate and save a unique and secure password for you.
2) Open Table
Waiting around for an open table at a restaurant is inordinately frustrating.
If you don’t want to wait hours to sit down, use Open Table. Their platform allows you to make last-minute plans and quickly book tables when you need them most.
From independent reviews to local menus, the application will provide you with everything you need to have a successful, spontaneous time out on the town.
All you need to do is enter your party’s size, the date, time, location, and restaurant or cuisine you’re interested in. With these four pieces of information, Open Table will provide you with the reservation you need.
If you’ve never heard of Rooam, do yourself a favor and check out their website.
Their application is the solution you’ve been waiting for, as it addresses the most frustrating thing in the hospitality world—waiting to pay your check.
Waiting to be seated is pretty bad, but trying to get your server’s attention, arguing over who will pay the bill, and waiting for your card to be charged is infinitely worse. With Rooam, you can track your bill throughout a meal and pay it at the exact moment you’re ready to leave.
Another superior component of Rooam is its unmatched ability to reduce fraudulent payments. Instead of accidentally leaving your tab open all night, you can pay whenever you’re ready to leave with Rooam’s PCI-compliant platform.
Seriously, with this application, leaving your credit card at the bar—and all the inconveniences associated—can be a thing of the past.
From iCloud to Google, you have more smart calendars at your disposal than ever before.
If you’re like most people, using one of these options isn’t enough. So, you store your appointments, reminders, and events on a multitude of platforms.
When your information is scattered, you’re more likely to miss important details or overschedule. With Cal, you can integrate all of your calendars into one user-friendly interface.
Without a full-time financial advisor, managing your money can seem like an insurmountable task. If you feel like you could benefit from keeping better track of your financial goals and managing your money overall, Mint is for you.
Their platform combines all of your balances and investments so you can easily keep track of your current finances and improve your future financial outlook.
Over 14 million people save articles, videos, and more with Pocket. When you see something you want to read but don’t have time, save it to Pocket. Once it’s on your profile, you can view it on your preferred device at your preferred time.
One of the application’s best features is its offline capabilities.
You can read your saved content when you’re out of cell phone and Wi-Fi range, making it ideal for flights. From a data-saving standpoint, the fact that it works offline is invaluable.
