1. Swipetimes

The Swiptimes app functions similarly to a budget planner only instead of showing you where your money went it shows you were your time went. It can be used to see how much time you spend on individual projects and presents it in a bright and colorful way (like pie charts). This allows you to alter your schedule as needed so that you can allocate as much time as necessary to precise tasks.

2. Idealo

Having an app for price comparison is particularly useful if you are buying products for your office. It helps you by scanning a barcode while you are shopping and compares it to fourteen thousand different online shops in order to find the cheapest price or best deal. It offers you more than that too! You get product information as well as user reviews. This can save you quite a bit of time finding the best deals as a start up.
