App review: Living Organized

App review: Living Organized
Living Organized is another entrant in the increasingly crowded productivity category.

First, a spelling disclaimer: we’ve stuck to the American spelling so you can actually find this app if you’re searching the Apple or Google Play store.

With that out of the way, Living Organized is another entrant in the increasingly crowded productivity category. 

It’s a worthy competitor because it’s quite the one stop shop, is easy to navigate and recently released a freemium option.

Some apps of this type focus on note taking, or managing your calendar or expenses. Living Organized does all of these, plus adds a vault to stash stuff like passwords and insurance details.

Once you’ve registered, you’re shown a Youtube video of how it works and you can register your details, set up folders and local currency. Then you add task lists, manage your diary and store files to access via the cloud.

Living Organized recognises it’s not all about you - partners can be added by entering an email address and content shared or discussed with them.

The premium version costs 99c a month or $9.99 for a year. For that there’s 1GB of cloud storage, the ability to sync two ways to popular calendar services like Google and iCal andd syncing to unlimited iOS, Android and Windows devices.
