As any busy person knows, the ability to stay organized means the difference between being a highly efficient and productive person and wasting a lot of time each day improperly juggling everyday tasks. The human urge to procrastinate or focus solely on whatever urgent matter happens to come up could result in your inability to meet all your day-to-day responsibilities.

While neither the Apple iPhone or iPad can add more hours to your day, either device can help you better plan and manage your time using the built-in and extremely powerful Calendar app, which can easily sync data between your mobile device and your primary scheduling software on your desktop computer, laptop computer, or office network. It can even share your schedule with coworkers to help you more easily schedule important meetings.

Not everything we need to do each day, however, can be pre-scheduled in a specific block of time. Many people opt to work from to-do lists, but wind up keeping multiple lists for their personal and professional responsibilities, and often jot down to-do list items on Post-In Notes, notepads or scrap papers that can easily be misplaced or cause clutter.

When it comes to managing, scheduling, prioritizing, sharing, and completing tasks on a to-do list, both the iPhone and iPad have a handful of extremely useful third-party apps available that can help you organize and juggle multiple to-do lists, meet tight deadlines, and make better use of your valuable time.
