Almost every freelance web designer depends heavily on apps to carry out daily tasks. Whether it is managing productivity, your finances or even communication with your clients and employees, there are apps that you can make use of – some of which are free or paid. So, here are three applications that can make the lives of freelance web designers easier than usual: #1: BaseCamp Considered to be one of the best Project Management apps around, this one allows freelancers from around the world to collaborate but that’s not all – you can keep track of material such emails, briefs, URLs, to-do lists and screenshots and so on and so forth. One good thing about BaseCamp is the fact that it’s popular and most seasoned freelancers already have an account that you can hook up with yours. If you wish to do so, you can also invite your clients to monitor the progress of a project as well. #2: DropBox Any web developer would know how important it is to maintain back-up, and DropBox is probably the best application around for that purpose. Not only can you store files by uploading them to the cloud but you can also share these files between multiple computers. Better still: you can share these files with a coworker pretty much anywhere in the world. #3: FreshBooks Put simply, this invoicing application is very popular amongst freelancers because it takes the labor out of the invoicing process. Some functions include bookkeeping, invoicing, time-tracking, reporting business performance and expense tracking as well. Best part: it’s simple to use, clean and prepares professionally designed invoices for your clients.
