"The Best ADHD App is..."

Real adults with ADHD tune in and tell us which apps are the best for sleep, organization, finances, and more.

Best ADHD apps for smartphones

LastPass is my favorite. I create a master password, and the app gives me access to the 40 passwords I use. I couldn't remember them all without this app.

—Darlene, Kentucky

ADDitude asked readers to share the best app for managing their ADHD symptoms. Here's what they said!

My bank's app, which allows me to pay bills online. —Angela, Oregon

I have several favorite ADHD apps: Microsoft Entourage, QuickBooks, my Day-Timer, the alarm clock on my smartphone, and agreeing with my husband on getting to bed at a set time. —Ann, North Carolina

I struggle with finances, and my husband and I fight about them a lot. My favorite app is YNAB. It has stopped me from making a lot of impulse purchases. —Jennifer, Washington

My favorite app is a good old-fashioned notebook. Writing chores down and crossing them off my list appeals to me. —Keri, Massachusetts

Waze — a great traffic app that helps me get to work and other places on time. —Christy, Massachusetts

My child's favorite app is ChoreMonster. Mine are Routines, Evernote, and OneNote. —Carrie, Oregon

Nag for Android works for me. —Susanne, Washington

CalAlarm2 is the newest version of an excellent calendar app. I use it for everything: customer appointments, reminders to pick up my children, and to take medicine. —Tracy, Washington

I love Out of Milk for organizing grocery lists. You can scan in and categorize your household inventory, and then set up specific lists for each place you shop. —Jennifer, Pennsylvania

I use Mint for finances, OmniFocus for reminders, and Fitbit for sleep. —Jenny, Illinois

To schedule things and create task lists, I use S Planner (it comes with Samsung phones). —Krista, Canada

We use CalenGoo for our family's calendars and Grocery IQ for our shopping lists. I use Opus Domini as a virtual day planner. It reminds me of my old Franklin Covey day planner. My husband uses BrainWave for sleep. It helps his ADHD brain slow down, so he can get to sleep, and stay asleep. —Lori, Pennsylvania

The main app I use for to-do lists is Wunderlist. —Melisa, Tennessee
