iFlipTips as a Personal Organizer – iFlipDiary

ifliptips-iphone-1With more information to remember, more tasks to complete and more appointments to attend, it’s never been more important to have a suitable personal organizer. The iFlipTips app provides a handy way to keep all your personal notes, reminders, task lists and appointments in one place. The versatile nature of the app means you can capture thoughts and ideas as they occur to you during the day, and sort them into folders that provide you with the kind of organizational system you need.

Although the iTunes app store has plenty of existing personal organization apps, often these use complex systems that require just as much time to maintain as it takes you to do the tasks themselves. The systems used by these apps are often also rigid, so you have to organize your tasks and reminders in a method specified by the app, rather than being able to create your own system. iFlipTips is simple to use, but is so customizable that you can create the kind of personal organizer system that works for you, without having the app dictate how you should capture and save your tasks.

One way of using iFlipTips as a personal organizer is to create an iTips-Ideas folder for each day of the week. To do this, click on “View” under the iTips-Ideas heading, then tap “Edit” in the top right-hand corner of the screen, before adding a folder for each week day. You can also use the sub-folders to organize your reminders for each day into individual folders, such as “Tasks” and “Appointments”, so you can retrieve the information you need quickly.

This organization system also means you can organize your week’s reminders in advance, so you don’t have to remember tasks and appointments on the day. Spending an hour each week organizing your reminders for the next seven days can save you time and stress on each individual day, as all you then have to do is look up the information and be at the required place, or complete the required task, at the specified time.

One of the key pieces of organization advice you might hear is to separate private tasks and appointments from those associated with work. Using iFlipTips as a personal organizer helps you separate out your work life from your personal life. If you use your iPhone calendar for personal appointments, you can use iFlipTips to organize work meetings and deadlines, and vice versa.

The iFlipTips app’s folders system means you can keep all information you need in one place, including shopping lists, reminders and upcoming appointments, so you don’t need to switch between different apps to get the information you need. The variety mediums used in the app – text, image, video and audio – mean you can capture information in different ways. If it takes to long to describe a design or concept you want to discuss with a colleague using text, simply take a picture or video of it to show them later.

Shopping Using iFlipTips

It’s a familiar situation: we get to the grocery store, find a cart and start browsing the aisles, only to realize we’ve completely forgotten what we needed. iFlipTips solves that problem by enabling you to create and save multiple, customized shopping lists easily and efficiently. The note-taking app’s versatility means you can create as many lists as you want, categorizing your shopping items by store, season or any other system of your choice. Using iFlipTips as a shopping list app can help you save money by preventing impulse buying, and make your shopping trips more efficient.

Using the iTips-Ideas section of the app, you can create different categories for your lists. One way of doing this is to create different lists for different areas of your home, or different events of your life, such as birthdays, vacations, home improvement, clothing, and gardens.

Within each folder, you can create lists of items using the text box, an image or video. Not only does this help you capture all the items you need in an organized way, but it means that if you are out and find yourself in a clothing or home improvement store, you can quickly view items you’ve been meaning to purchase. This saves you having to rely on your memory, and can help make your shopping trips more efficient.

As well as creating lists of items you want to purchase now, you can use the app to capture items for a personal ‘wish list’, writing down the price of the item and the store in which you saw it, or taking a picture of it so you can view it later.

Creating these kinds of lists helps you compare prices of the same or similar products in different stores, and keep tabs on how much you’re spending. For example, if you want to purchase a new pair of jeans, you can use iFlipTips to compare the types of jeans available in different stores, and to keep track of items you like and might want to purchase in the future.

If you’re in a store and can’t decide what to buy, iFlipTips enables you to share your notes via email, on Facebook, or over Twitter, so you can ask for input from friends and family about the price, style and fit of an item before you buy.

The flashcard system used by iFlipTips is perfect for researching which items you want to buy before you go shopping. For example, if you’re going to a department store, you can create a detailed shopping list beforehand, even specifying the brand, color and size of a specific items, helping you speed up your trip when you get there.

The iFlipTips app’s folders system enables you to categorize your shopping items into different areas. If you’re going out and plan to visit several different stores, try creating a folder or sub-folder for each individual store, so you know what you’re purchasing in advance.
