The Apps Every Woman Should Be Using In 2020 For A Well-Balanced Life

In today’s digital age, there truly is an app for everything. You can basically keep your entire life organized on your phone, with everything you need at the tip of your fingers. 2020 is going to be your best year yet, and we’re here to help. Whether you need to get organized or just want to streamline what’s already on your phone, these are the apps we think every woman should be using in the new year.

Clue Period + Ovulation Tracker

My OB-GYN recommended this app back when I was trying to get pregnant and I’ve been using it ever since. It’s definitely the easiest to use and most comprehensive period and ovulation tracker. It also has a setting that reminds you to take your birth control pill (if you use them) and track those as well.



You’ve likely heard of Headspace by now, especially because we mention it frequently. If you haven’t tried it out yet, let 2020 be the year you dive into meditation. I use it for work, for walking and for falling asleep. Even my 3.5-year-old likes to use the guided kid meditation to fall asleep.

Sleep Cycle

Waking up easy is all about timing. Sleep Cycle alarm clock tracks your sleep patterns and wakes you up during light sleep. Waking up during light sleep feels like waking up naturally rested without an alarm clock. Let’s make 2020 the year we all finally get enough sleep.


Do you do a lot of networking or travel for your job? Instead of collecting loose business cards that just live in the bottom of your purse, use this app to scan and organize them. CamCard is a great way to build those important business connections, and also save a little bit of paper.

We love reading here at Team GG. Goodreads is the best way to keep track of the books you’re reading and the ones you want to read. Create different bookshelves and share book recommendations with your fellow bibliophiles.


Mint is definitely my favorite app for managing finances. It’s really helpful to have it all in one spot so you can get a bird’s eye view of your financial situation. It also makes it really easy to keep track of your budget and make sure you’re in a healthy position financially.



Have you ever been communicating with someone you respected and all of a sudden they misuse “your” for “you’re”? Don’t be that person. The Grammarly keyboard is autocorrect for grammatical errors. It makes it super easy to ensure that every text and email you send from your phone is perfect down to the letter.

Drink Water Reminder + Tracker

So many of us don’t drink enough water every day. This app helps you set daily goals and track them. It sends a handy little ping to your phone reminding you it’s time to drink water. You can set the amount, the reminder schedule and even the reminder message. I changed mine to say, “Drink some water you beautiful but dehydrated bitch,” but to each their own.

It’s unfortunate we need an app like Noonlight, but we’re also glad it’s available to us. It’s basically a silent bodyguard. If you’re walking to your car late at night, open the app and hold down the button until you’re safe. If something happens, Noonlight alerts first responders and sends your location. It also connects with the rest of your devices and easily connects you to help when you need it. If it triggers a false alarm, just text Noonlight your pin and they will confirm you’re safe.
