Have you been too busy to make best use of your mobile devices for organizing your life? Maybe you’ve lost or forgotten passwords, or left important information on a computer at home. You may be concerned about privacy and security, hesitant to use cloud services, and just haven’t had the time to find the best practices to make it all work effectively.

This webinar will help you set up a system that works for you — a system that makes it easy to access your information from anywhere, back up your important information securely, and organize your to-do list effectively.

We will look at four apps as examples:

  • Dropbox (cloud storage)
  • 1Password (secure password management)
  • Wunderlist (to-do lists accessible from any device)
  • Evernote (capture and store important notes in any format)

All four apps are available for both iOS and Android and have free versions for the majority of your needs.

Whether you choose these particular apps (or similar equivalents), you can apply this knowledge to set up a system that works for you.

With the knowledge from this workshop, you can:

  • synchronize your information securely between all your devices (mobile and desktop)
  • generate and remember secure passwords
  • automatically back up your smartphone’s photos
  • create to-do lists accessible from all your devices.

We will cover best practices for security and learn how to decide what levels of security make sense for different types of information.

Most importantly, you’ll learn to create a system that helps you work more effectively and with less stress in these times of information overload.

You’ll come away with a list of resources for learning more and a discount code for my full course, Organize Your Life with Mobile Apps (self-paced online course).

This workshop is appropriate for busy professionals or students and can be applied to both personal and work-related information.
