    In the past, we revealed some of the top free iPhone apps to help boost your productivity. Since the App Store overflows with apps, that list was rather short, so here are more free iPhone productivity apps worth downloading.

    Tips & Tricks – iPhone Secrets Lite


    The iPhone is a superb product that is filled with features.  While that is certainly a positive aspect of the device, many new users may find it to be overwhelming.  In fact, it’s safe to say that many iPhone owners do not get the most out of their beloved smartphone.  Learning how to maximize the iPhone’s features can increase productivity in various parts of life, such as work, travel, planning, organization, and more.  To achieve such productivity, you’ll need to unveil the iPhone’s hidden power, and the Tips & Tricks – iPhone Secrets Lite app does just that.

    The Lite version is obviously stripped down from the paid version, but you still get plenty of features with its free status.  You’ll have access to various shortcuts, tips, tricks, and hidden features that you probably never knew existed within the iPhone.  Improved battery life, faster typing, and enhanced browsing are just some examples of tips that are revealed thanks to the app.  Once you are finished, you’ll even be able to share your new knowledge with friends via email or social networking.

    Simplenote

    As its name implies, Simplenote is not a complicated app.  It is effective, however, especially if you are looking to put your iPhone to work when it comes to jotting down notes or ideas.  Simplenote can be used for whatever note-taking tasks you desire.  It could be a grocery list, a list of ideas you want to remember for future use, etc.  Once you create a note in the app, it will synchronize with other compatible devices and your computer to give you a solid level of access.  This cross-compatibility makes the app great for sharing your notes with others as well.  The free version offers you the basic functionality for keeping notes and lists.  In exchange for such status, a small ad will be put at the top of the app.  To remove the ads, you will need to upgrade to the premium version.

    >b>Cozi Family Organizer



    Trying to keep a family organized is a very time consuming task, to say the least.  With this in mind, you want to be as productive with your time as possible.  If you have a particularly large family with many kids, you may have so many tasks to accomplish on a daily basis that makes it hard to keep track of everything.  That’s where the Cozi Family Organizer app for the iPhone comes in.  Simply put, it’s a must-have for moms and other family leaders that are constantly on the run.  In fact, the app’s developers claim that it was named the top iPhone app for moms by the Circle of Moms online community.

    The strength of Cozi Family Organizer comes in the form of its flexibility.  It begins with a family calendar that lets you add events with ease.  When an event is added, it gets sent to the Cozi account so that it can be viewed from any mobile device or computer.  This makes sharing with other family members simple.  Reminders can also be set to give notifications via email or text so that nobody forgets important events. 

    Lists are another strong suit of this iPhone app.  Gone are the days of the old shopping list on paper, as Cozi Family Organizer gives you a cool, virtual list to bring with you.  It doesn’t matter if you are online or offline, the list will function.  Once an item is purchased, simply cross it off.  The same can be said for the app’s to-do lists.  You can create custom to-do lists as new things pop up, or you can use templates for standard activities such as chores or birthday parties. 

    Last, but not least, is the family journal feature.  With an internet connection, you can add entries to the journal for memorable times or even add pictures.  Once finished, share them with others.

    TripDeck

    Whether you travel frequently for business or pleasure, you probably know that travelling is a fun, yet stressful process.  TripDeck is an app that helps you use your iPhone to manage travel itinerary.  The app’s free features are impressive, and you can download extra add-ons, such as real-time flight trackers, gate info, and more, for a fee.

    As for the free features, TripDeck offers a one-stop-shop to manage your flights, cruises, car rentals, and hotel reservations.  If you are travelling for business, the app will keep track of your important meetings as well.  You can even include restaurant reservations to avoid any obstacles while out on the town. 

    Mint.com Personal Finance


    One area of life where you definitely want to stay productive and organized is your personal finances.  After all, time is money, and saving time while managing your money is always ideal.  With the Mint.com Personal Finance app, you can turn your iPhone into a mini banking machine to track where your money comes in and where it goes.  Most important, the app is secure and makes use of a four-digit pin number, so you won’t have to worry about compromising your sensitive data.  In the event that your iPhone is lost or stolen, you can deactivate phone access to the app with ease. 

    Mint.com Personal Finance gives you a comprehensive overview of your financial situation to include your checkings and savings accounts, credit card accounts, retirement accounts, investments, and more.  Once you add your online accounts to the app, it will automatically pull the information on a daily basis and place it into different categories. 

    Besides giving you an overview of your finances, the Mint.com app also offers money management capabilities.  You can create your own budget or have the app create one for you based on your actual spending habits.  If you use cash frequently, you can add manual transactions to keep track of such spending.  The app also helps to save you money from expensive late fees, overdraft fees, due dates, and more with notifications via text or email.  All of this functionality speaks for itself, but if you tend to rely on critics, you will be pleased to know that Mint.com Personal Finance has been named one of the top iPhone apps by publications like TIME Magazine and The New York Times, among others.
