Working on the road can get pretty hectic at times. As a digital nomad and a traveller, I have found myself in rather awkward situations a lot – from missed deadlines due to incorrect time zone conversion to procrastinate instead of doing some work.
Here are a list of Apps that help me keep sane, while on the road:
Find the best coffee shops and cafes in your area with this service. Workfrom is free to join and you’ll get access to numerous cool spots with unbiased opinions of wi-fi connection and cappuccino quality from digital nomads like us.
3. Trail Wallet
One of my essential money app is Trail Wallet. It’s an easy-to-use app for tracking your expenses across multiple countries and currencies. I can organise my spendings by country or my month, set max daily budgets and add each dollar I’ve spent on the go.
5. Every Time Zone
Every Time Zone is great solution for keeping proper track of the time – my client’s time. I add all time zones I need, then add my time in the marker at the top and see where this lands in everyone else’s day. No more crazy maths with figuring out when do you need to ring up Bob on Skype.
We work with people based anywhere from New Zealand to US and keeping an eye on the deadline may get tricky. Just as sending follow-ups, project proposals and invoices at the right time of the day. Every Time Zone will keep you sane!
6. Rescue Time
Proper time management is great struggle we all face. I’ve started using Rescue Time recently – to give more accurate deadlines to my clients; create accurate hourly invoices as you know exactly how much time you’ve spent doing a certain task and adjusting your rates accordingly and eliminate random activity during your working hours.
Canva is extremely useful for those with limited design skills. The site lets you quickly create professional-looking site graphics, presentations, flyers, infographics and more via a simple drag-and-drop interface.
8. XE Currency
How many currencies do you have in your wallet? As a digital nomad and traveler you have to keep track on the conversion rates and different currencies all the time. XE Currency gives you live conversion rates instantly or add up a list of your preferred and sync ahead of time to have instant offline access from any device.
Tripit is one of the best travel planners out there! It’s free, fast and most importantly – works off-line. Just say no more to papers and lost emails. Forward all your booking confirmations – hotels, flights, car rental etc and let the app do all the magic for you by turning it into an easy-to-follow itinerary.
