Like most entrepreneurs, you’re probably juggling lots of hats and could use some help with productivity and organization. Fortunately, we live in a time where everything has an app, from ordering your favorite food, keeping notes, and even relationship building. Phone apps are an easy way to take your business with you at all times, wherever you need to go.

The following four apps will make managing all your hats much easier.

Refresh

Refresh is easily the best-kept secret for anyone who finds themselves in business meetings frequently. Refresh is a terrific relationship-builder that can help take your sales team to a new level. By syncing seamlessly with services such as Gmail, Facebook, Salesforce, and LinkedIn, it helps you go into meetings prepared and informed. With Refresh, you review past interactions with the people you’ll be meeting or learn new information about them. Using Refresh, you might discover that you and a contact both speak Spanish, that you have 15 mutual friends on Facebook, or that her birthday is coming up in a week. You can also see who first introduced you, or whether you’ve taken any notes about them in Evernote. Available for iOS, Android, or for use on your browser.

Evernote

With a super simple interface, it’s amazing how much Evernote can do. Think of it as extra storage for your brain, wherever you need it. With Evernote, you’ll never forget important information again. If you’re away from your laptop, you can use Evernote to add audio files or pictures, take notes, and easily add it to a notebook for later use. Have a to-do list a mile long? Evernote can help you keep track of it and mark things off as you go. You can also send and save articles to be used as inspiration, research, or social media posts. Whether you’re using Android, iOS, or the Chrome extension, Evernote can help you keep track of everything you need to remember.

IFTTT (If This Then That)

Programming, without actually doing any programming. Using IFTTT, you can create what the app calls recipes that connect your services to one another in many interesting ways. For example, when you receive an email from Lead411, you have that email automatically turned into an Evernote entry. Or when you post a photo to Instagram, IFTTT automatically turns it into a Twitter-friendly picture and posts it on Twitter for you. If the weather conditions change to rain, IFTTT can send a text to warn you, so you’ll have more time to get to your next meeting. Available on Android, iOS, or as a browser extension, the possibilities are endless.

Asana

There was a time when Basecamp reigned in project management, but Asana comes out on top these days. Project management is important in every business, and it doesn’t need to be hard. Some businesses are able to cut down emails between colleagues by as much as 40 percent using Asana to organize their projects. Asana allows you to assign tasks to coworkers or virtual assistants, organize the tasks into projects, have discussions about the tasks, add subtasks when necessary, and then, if you wish, get a daily snapshot of how everybody is doing on each project. Worried about a deadline? Asana lets you know which deadlines are in danger of not being met. Asana is a game changer for project management. Available on iOS, Android, and on your browser.
