Most of us spend a good amount of our days on our phones and I am no different. I use my iPhone for everything — work, play, and everything in between.

Here are some of my favorite apps, in no particular order.

Audible
I love reading books but sometimes, I just don’t have time so I do the next best thing, I listen to them. Once I found out that I could listen to audiobooks at 1.25–1.5x speed (faster than I could read), it was over. Currently listening to: Crushing It! by Gary Vaynerchuk

Buffer
This has saved me a lot of time over the years. I queue up my social media posts and articles that I find interesting and it automatically posts for me. They recently added Instagram’s new auto-post feature, making my life so much easier.

FotMob
For the soccer geek/fanboy in me. FotMob helps me keeps track of scores from the many leagues and competitions around the world in an easy to use interface. I don’t even check ESPN or Fox Sports anymore.

Overcast
All I listen to are podcasts nowadays. I have too many to list and will have to make another post soon listing them all. (Psst… I am currently subscribed to 51 podcasts)

Todoist
This was introduced to me by a colleague at my old job and it has seriously changed my life. I can’t remember which app I was using before but once I found out about Todoist, it was game over. I could type “Get groceries on Wednesday at 6 PM” and it will automatically add it Wednesday and send me an alert at 6 PM. I don’t have to tap any other menu items or go to another screen. This has saved me a ton of time over the past year.

Twitter
This is my preferred social media app/platform. If I want to find out about something, I go to Twitter. If I hear about breaking news, I go to Twitter. If I want to see a video of a ridiculous goal from a soccer game, I go to Twitter. Enough said.
