Perhaps one of the most useful branches of technology though, is technology that is designed to help us save time. Our time is incredibly precious and whilst there’s no technology yet that can give us more time, there’s plenty that can help us utilize the time that we do have that bit better. So, if you wish you had more hours in the day, some of this clever tech might be able to at least make it feel like you do.
Whilst it doesn’t take very long to type in a password when asked, if you can’t remember your password the whole process becomes a lot more laborious. Everybody knows how important it is to have different passwords for different things. It helps to make your accounts less susceptible to getting hacked, but the downside is it can be difficult to keep track of all of the different passwords that you choose. Thankfully there are a handful of brilliant password managers that can help you to ensure that not only are you keeping your accounts safe, but you also never have to worry about forgetting a password again. LastPass is a great option that allows you to store all of your login credentials not just for websites, but across social media platforms and other apps too. So, not only will you not have to remember your password, but you’ll also not have to remember your user name, or email address either.
Making the most of your free time is very important. Most of us work long hours at our jobs and then come home and have chores and responsibilities to take care of before we can relax and enjoy ourselves. This means that we are already pushed for time when it comes to enjoying our hobbies and any bit of technology that could help us to sneak in more time would be hugely helpful. If you have a hobby where there’s an awful lot of choice available, perhaps you’re part of a book club, you enjoy online shopping, or you like playing casino games, then the chances are there’s a website out there that can help you to make wiser choices about where you spend your free time. A great example is the casino sector, where sites like casinobonusca trawl through the thousands of casinos sites that are available to work out which ones offer the best variety of games, or the most generous signup bonuses so that you don’t have to spend your precious playtime working all of this out for yourself. Similarly, sites like Good Reads allow you to scroll through book reviews written by real people, organized by genre. So if you know you’re a romance fan, but can’t pick out your next title, Good Reads has a whole host of helpful reviews to help you decide, so that you can get reading more quickly.
One of the ways that we waste the most time is procrastinating. All of us are guilty of occasionally scrolling through social media when we should be working, or at the very least taking an extraordinarily long time to sort through our email inbox. If you find yourself procrastinating online often and wonder how much more efficiently you could get your day’s work done without this distraction then it might be a good idea to test out a website blocker. These clever apps take minutes to set up, asking you which websites you would like them to block you from opening. There are different tiers of control that you can use, from blocking any access to the internet at specific times to just removing the Instagram or Facebook temptation.
Freedom is a brilliant app and a favorite of ours at AppleMagazine, because it’s super affordable and allows you to block websites and apps in time blocks, so you can have your social media fix after work hours.
