IT professionals often spend long working hours addressing employee concerns, implementing new systems, and exploring new technologies.
By the time you arrive home at the end of the day, it can be tempting to sit down and relax -- but there are often more things to do. Errands like grocery shopping, cleaning, laundry, and dog walking don't disappear because you were at the office.
It can be overwhelming to handle the mundane tasks of everyday life in addition to the pressures of a demanding job. Sometimes it seems there aren't enough hours in the day to handle it all.
Fortunately for stressed professionals, the Apple App Store and Google Play have several apps designed to help with chores and make your to-do list more manageable.
These services aim to boost your out-of-office productivity with handy features like suggesting cleaning tips, having someone pick up your mail or laundry, and reminding you to pay your bills on time.
Here, we recommend 10 mobile apps to help make your daily chores and errands easier and more manageable with your crazy work schedule. Have you used any of these apps? Are there any you would add to this list? We would like to learn your ideas in the comment section.
