5 Apps for busy women
We all want to spend less time glued to our phones, but what if an app could actually save you time and leave you free to be more productive, or relax and enjoy your downtime more?
Here’s our pick of the best of the bunch, whether you want to unwind, save time, or just get that to-do list done (and they’re all completely free!)
The antidote to a daunting inbox, Unroll.me can be downloaded onto your computer, phone or tablet to help get your subscription emails in order. First of all, you’re able to easily unsubscribe from any mailing lists you no longer want to receive. Then, the rest of your email subscriptions will simply be sorted in one daily email delivered at a time of your choosing, called ‘The Rollup’. Phew.
If you’re one of those people who have ten to-do lists cramming up your diary and desk drawer then this is the app for you. Not only can you streamline your to-do lists into one space, organising them by category, but you can also easily schedule recurring tasks, delete items and share projects (handy if you collaborate with freelancers or like to work from home).
We’ve all been there – browsing on the go and coming across that one amazing article, video or tweet that will be perfect to share at an ideas or pitch meeting and then not being able to find it again when we get back to the office. Pocket allows you to save content when you see it so you can come back to it in the future, from any device, for reference, and even view items offline. The best bit? It also gets rid of banner adds so articles are much easier to read.
If you just want to find two minutes in your day to relax and stay centred, then try Buddhify’s guided meditations. Tracks are designed to fit easily into everyday life with activities to try while on the commute, at work or just browsing online. Try it for a week and get ready to feel more mindful.#

Recently, members of the Libby team have been putting their sewing skills to good use by volunteering to make personal protective equipment (PPE) for the NHS.
In particular, fluid repellent gowns for our local Royal Brompton Hospital, upcycled from old theatre drapes. The volunteering scheme is led by The Fashion School's Caroline Gration and staff at the Royal Brompton hospital and is situated at Kensington and Chelsea College (KCC).
