As a perfectionist, even mundane tasks can become burdensome. Obsessing with details on every little task, yet somehow getting distracted because you want to do everything all at once. Even if you aren’t the full perfectionist, here are 5 apps that will help and satisfy the inner perfectionist in you.
1. BILT app
This super innovative app is THE alternative to crappy printed instructions that come with everything you buy nowadays. Say goodbye to never knowing what tool to use, or how many parts you should have, or wondering how to fit that piece into your current assembling nightmare. With an interactive 360° display, you can zoom in and out at different angles and see exactly where and how to put everything together, step by step. BILT also has audio guided instructions that can help those who can’t see as well, or those who just don’t have enough hands to hold up instructions, a screw, screwdriver, and flashlight, along with the awkwardly shaped piece you’re trying to fit into place. Overall, extremely useful, and makes putting that new piece of furniture together a breeze.
From a personal to-do list for the day, or collaborating on multiple group projects at work, Trello makes your life easier with an easy-to-use and eye pleasing display. Trello makes tasks at home, work, school, PTA, and any other project, easy to keep track of and organizable. It makes focusing on tasks at all stages of completion simple, with a satisfying click-and-drag system that helps you put order back into your life.

The app is very organized and easy to navigate with a simple yet aesthetically pleasing design, and uses graphics well to help the user also visually understand their budgeting.
