Mobile Apps To Keep YOUR 2014 Resolutions on Track

Chances are, you have made some type of New Year's Resolution that will improve your personal and/or professional life in 2014.

The challenge, however, is staying committed to those resolutions throughout the entire year. This is why it is important to surround yourself with the tools and technology needed to help you succeed over the long term. Read below to discover a variety of mobile apps that can help you stay devoted to your professional New Year resolutions all year long.

Resolution: Focus more energy on content marketing.

Apps: Prompts, Feedly
Content marketing picked up steam in 2013 and is expected to continue its momentum throughout 2014. Creating content, however, is a time-consuming task. In order to keep content initiatives on track in 2014, consider downloading the Feedly and Prompts apps. The Feedly app, for instance, is a news aggregator that is available for iOS and Android devices. The app helps users monitor and save trending topics while on the go, as well as includes organizational and personalization features. Conversely, Prompts is a creative writing app that is only available for iOS devices. The app comes with more than 1,000 starting lines to help users combat writer's block and syncs with Dropbox.

Resolution: Increase video content.

Apps: Instagram, Vine
We live in a visual society, which means that image and video content tends to receive more engagement than simple text. This is why brands should focus more time on image and video-based social networks in 2014. By downloading (and spending more time with) the Instagram and Vine apps for iOS and Android devices, brands can easily increase their video content (and social engagement) while on the go all year long.

Resolution: Better time management.

App: 30/30
Stop wasting time in 2014 by downloading the 30/30 app for iOS devices. The app is really simple, users just need to set up a list of tasks and a length of time for each. Then, the timer notifies users when it is time to move onto the next task.

Resolution: Staying connected on the go.

Apps: Yammer, GoToMeeting
Stay connected to your team even when you are away from the office by downloading the Yammer and GoToMeeting mobile apps. For instance, the Yammer app, which is available for iOS and Android devices, works as a social network for the enterprise. Through the app, employees can interact, share photos and documents and collaborate on projects together. On the other hand, the GoToMeeting app for iOS and Android devices enables professionals to participate with company meetings from their smartphones and tablets. Plus, the iPad app includes an onscreen highlighter and whiteboard and allows for up to six participants.

Resolution: Pay better attention to key performance indicators (KPIs).

Apps: Chartbeat, gAnalytics

Chartbeat is available for iOS devices, and provides users with real-time website, social and mobile data, including information on traffic sources and page load time.
