Great Apps to make you more productive in ministry

There are so many apps out there now to choose from. Apple is about to hit 50 billion downloads of apps. I’m always trying new apps to see if they will help me become more productive. Hopefully you can use these apps to help you to more productive while freeing you up to do more ministry.

1. Genius Scan

Genius scan is a great app. It basically turns your iPhone or smart phone into a portable scanner. It can scan receipts, decision cards,and it will scan anything you need to copy. It allows you to share the scanned item right into your Dropbox folder to have on the cloud when you need it. Never loose a receipt again for that next expense report, you’ll make your secretary happy for sure.

 

2.drop box

Dropbox isa great tool that allows you to have your files on the go. Dropbox is free too , but you can upgrade for more space. The standard is 2 gig free and up to 18 gig each time you share Dropbox with a friend and they sign up.

Free for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Mobile

3. Evernote

Evernote is a great way to store all you sermon notes. Evernote is also great to collaborate with others if you are doing newsletters or anything in print that you may have to collaborate on. Evernote can connect to several other apps literally making you able to go all digital if you really wanted to. I have slowly used Evernote and recently went with the premium version which allows you to store more.The free edition really is sufficient enough for most. I have slowly started the process of converting all my files to digital files in evernote. You can export the files PDF so if you ever got tired of evernote and found something else it could be an easy transition. Thanks to Michael Hyatt he shared a way to import your bookmarks from Amazon Kindle app. This is quite handy when doing sermons, you can take the bookmarks any notes you have in the kindle and put them right into your sermon.

4. DayONE

I am new to writing so I started looking for some tools to help in the writing process. I have never enjoyed writing for several reasons. Part of my dislike in the past has been I just felt I was not good at writing not saying I have arrived now. I believe another reason I didnot like writing was I never felt confident in writing. I never enjoyed grammar of English class and so my lack off interest filled my lack of confidence. This is where Dayone makes the list. Dayone makes legit suggestions for grammar. It makes writing fun in a way that you’re not really focused on the nuts and bolts and not recording briefly moments through journaling. It allows you to share links, pics attached the weather and much more. I love the clean look of interface and how it does a great job at creating a distraction free writing mode.

5. hootsuite

The last app to check out is hootsuite. This app is great to schedule all your social media needs. The great thing about this app is the ability to schedule posts. There is a free version and has an upgrade for more features for $9.99 a month. This program can also runs on the web. Put your post on automation.

I hope that you came across a app today that you were not familiar with that could help you in ministry.
