I use a simple calendar for myself. But don't use Fantastical Calendar.

Torque pro. Helps read the OBD2 codes on your crown vic

Airline apps for me. Much more convenience in getting/using digital boarding passes.

OK Google now

Maybe a program that will wipe your smart phone clean of everything, including the OS. Once done, you'll have plenty of free time.

Umm, virtually every app saves time vs not using a computer

Google Translate vs learning a language
Uber instead of walking.
Pocket/Feedly vs reading websites manually
Google maps vs getting lost

A few of my favorites:

Google Maps
List Master Pro
TinyScanner Pro
Google Photo Scan
Dashlane
Google Trips

Don't forget Facebook so you don't have to talk to your family

Google Maps is helpful much in this case. I love it.

TripAdvisor - saves me time when traveling, but also prevents me from having to carry around heavy guidebooks.
BestParking - saves time finding least expensive parking options
Airline apps - saves me time checking in
Starbucks - saves time because I can order ahead and pick up without waiting in line
Camscanner - allows me to take photos of receipts and submit for FSA & expenses which is faster than doing it any other way
Waze - saves me time by finding faster routes/avoiding traffic
Apple pay - saves time relative to an EMV/chip transaction
SignNow - saves me time by allowing me to sign & date emailed documents. Used a ton when refinancing multiple times.
Yelp - saves me from wasting time eating at bad restaurants
Gasbuddy - saves me time by telling me the least expensive gas around

Facebook - takes all the time I saved from the above and lets me waste it.

Power Button. Turn it off.

MyRadar - when to go inside or outside- eliminates when I have to get a towel and dry off.

also †speed trap alerts, avoids cost and court time of tickets. voice alerts will miss the reports on the other side of the road though.

UA mileageplusx app lets you buy gift cards in real time so you can earn bonus miles without going to GGD or other

There is an app called the Grammar Checker. That's what I use before posting anything on FW.
To save time, I use Compound Time Saver. You can store your time just like a bank account. The more time you save, the more you could roll over to next month.

Have any of you try the Google app? I wonder how much do they charge to save time?

† Looks like you forgot to use the GC app this time

A smartphone is for making and receiving calls. You do a lot better on a computer if you want to get online. That advice applies to all the idiots who bid on my stuff on eBay and then never pay because the smartphone display didnít show a part of the listing that they only saw after getting home and looking at it on their desktop.

Actually The SmartPhone now a days works just fine. You can do everything what you are doing using your computer programms. Because all of the things are now available on Android device. The problem is that mobile screen isn't so big and can't see all of the writing easily.

Finance?

Pornhub saves me a lot of time.

I like weather, banking (deposit checks without going to the bank), and work email/calendar as that saves me from having to fire up my laptop to check it.

If you live in a city or use cabs, uber will save you time as you don't have to wait for cabs as long.
