ADDitude asked readers to share the best apps for ADHD and keeping life in order. 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
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
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
