6 Back-to-School Apps to Help You Remember Everything

Between that just-announced work meeting and weekend brunch with friends, sometimes remembering the important stuff can be a little tough. Instead of sticking Post-It notes all over everything we own, we’re putting those smartphones to work. This week, it’s time to Upgrade Your Life and download these six apps that will help you stay on top of things, so you can get back to enjoying what’s left of the summer.


1. The Homework App: This colorful take on our coursework is a dream come true. Simply input your tasks and check out your calendar to stay on top of your assignments — you’ll be acing your courses in no time.

DL It: Free on iOS

Brit Mango Health App

2. Mango Health: We all have our flighty moments, but we can’t take a risk when it comes to our health. This well-designed app will help keep you on track so you’ll never miss your meds again.

DL It: Free on iOS and Android

Brit Peek Calendar App

3. Peek: When we’re on the go, we need a reminder app that’s clean, simple and easy to input. If it’s a pain to update, that kind of ruins the point, right? We love Peek’s colorful, sleek interface — it’s great for updating on the subway and keeping us on task.

DL It: $2.99 on iOS

4. Timegg Pro: When plans and to-do lists change at the last minute, it makes way more sense to use a timer instead of a calendar. This app is great for recording everything from last-minute happy hour plans to when our one-pot dinner is ready.

DL It: $2.99 on iOS

5. Wunderlist: We all need reminders for those day-to-day tasks and obligations, but our our ideas and inspirations are equally as important. Wunderlist is a wonderful interface that syncs with your phone, tablet and computer, keeping all of your genius ideas in one place.

DL It: Free on iOS and Android

Brit mP App

6. myPill: This app not only serves as a great way to stay on top of your preferred birth control method, but can also help you keep tabs on how you’re feeling from day to day. DL it now and stay in tune with your body (and also to remind yourself to pick up some Ibuprofen and something sweet before you start those iron pills).

DL It: Free on iOS and Android

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
