If you’re on the lookout for even more top apps to increase productivity and help support you being more organised and take control of your finances in 2020, look no further. We’ve got you covered.

We’ve asked the team at Phlo to share their personal favourite up-and-coming apps for 2020 to boost productivity and save money. From stock investing to award-winning time management apps, we’ve covered it all. So without further ado, let’s dive in and hear what Phlo’s team members recommend:

Jonathan Forbes, Phlo’s Chief Technology Officer, recommends the stock-trading Free trade app. Freetrade is a commission-free stock investing app that is simple to use and secure. Here’s what Jonathan had to say about it:

I'm a Freetrade app junkie. Their business model is ambitious and disruptive (zero commission, execution-only stock trading) operating in a regulated environment. Their app is clean and straightforward to use. It's integrated with Intercom so I can talk to their team, it's iterated frequently as they automate more of their back-end services, they publish an open roadmap on Trello so I know what'll be shipped and everything is backed by a vibrant community forum. It's that whole package that makes it work for me. Others are clearly fans too as they've landed a decent funding round recently. For me, it's one to watch as competitors' apps and business models will surely need to react soon.”

Brian Grassie, Phlo’s Head of Marketing, is a fan of the Do it Later messaging automation app. Do it later is an elegant app that lets you schedule your messages and e-mails, get regular reports and stay on top of your to-do list. Here’s what Brian had to say:

“As a marketer, there’s a million things that constantly require my attention every day, and having the ability to schedule messages for later is really useful and helps me organise my day better. Since my phone doesn’t have an inbuilt feature to schedule SMS, I’ve been using the Do it Later app for message scheduling, which I really like. Do it Later is absolutely great for just writing the message while it's fresh in your mind: just schedule it for when you want it to send, then forget all about it.”

Adam Hunter, Phlo Digital Pharmacy Chief Commercial Officer, is a fan of the Plum money saving app. Plum acts as your personal AI assistant to help you save money every day. How does it work? Plum learns from your daily transactions and spending habits, then sets the perfect amount of money a side every few days. Here’s what Adam had to say about Plum:

“I am a big fan of the Plum app. The app works out how much you can afford to save and puts the money aside for you. It’s an absolutely great way to save money on a daily basis. Its rounding up feature is especially useful. Once you’ve enabled it, Plum rounds up every transaction to the nearest whole pound, then sets aside that extra amount to your Plum savings.”
