Image to Word Converter
Imagine you have an invoice that you would like to reuse with another client or you received an invoice you liked and would prefer to use it for your own purposes. Instead of retyping the document, simply take your phone, snap a photo of the invoice and convert it. Voila, you are done! Now you can edit it as a normal Word document. You can also use Image to Word Converter to declutter your home office by digitizing all the documents you have in a paper form laying around your house. It is truly a remarkable app freelancer could use.
Rescue Time is an app that can help you waste less time and get more things done. It is basically an automated time tracker that will help you control and understand the time spent on your computer or Android device. So the basic idea is that the app will track how you spend time on your phone or desktop computer and will later allow you to analyze where you spent most of your time. If you realize that you spent 10 hours last week watching YouTube videos, you will know for sure that it is time to take your time management seriously.
There is no better organizer app then Trello. It provides you with a visual and simple way to organize all your projects and collaborate with various people all within one app. There is an option to create multiple boards for separate projects and then create lists and label cards in those boards for easy navigation. The free version of the app allows you to create as many boards as you want but restricts the number of third-party apps you can integrate directly with Trello.
