Freelance Writer and Contributor to, Cathy Habas returns with this informative and useful post on 7 new apps that will save women-on-the-go time and frustration. From single women to moms and everyone in between, there is at least one app for YOU here!

Modern women are practically synonymous with busy. We have careers, families, social lives and hobbies to balance, not to mention finding time to relax, recharge and pamper ourselves. If you are always on the lookout for helpful tools to save time and help you reach your goals, you’re in luck! Here are 7 apps that are sure to help women on the go to kick off the New Year in an unprecedented way:

1. Helpr.


Finding a qualified babysitter is not as easy as it sounds, and Helpr exists in order to take all the guesswork out of finding a childcare provider. Select a Helpr after viewing their profile, picture and video, and conduct an interview with them if you wish. All Helprs have the same rate of $21 per hour for one child, with an additional $1 per hour charge for each additional child. With Helpr, you have a pool of pre-screened candidates to choose from in order to find a babysitter who really clicks with you and your children. You can make last-minute bookings (at least 90 minutes in advance is recommended) or schedule a babysitting date months in advance. Helpr is perfect for those moments when life throws a curveball. It’s also a wonderful solution if you are traveling and find yourself in need of a babysitter for an afternoon. And if you have a flexible schedule, you could apply to become a Helpr yourself and earn extra income. Helpr is currently available in Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and Orange County, but there are plans for future expansion. Get it from the App Store

4. eFax.


For the busy businesswoman, finding a public-use fax machine for that rare instance someone wants to receive a fax versus an email could take precious time away from your tight schedule. That’s why the eFax app is so brilliant: when someone wants you to fax something and you’d rather send an email, this app lets you do it! Use the app to attach the document to an email, and your recipient will receive the file on their fax machine. The body of your email is transformed into a cover letter too. You can also get a dedicated fax number and receive “faxes” that are actually delivered straight to your email inbox. No need to buy or maintain a fax machine these days. Get it from the App Store or Google Play.

Instacart is currently offered in certain major cities in 20 states, but you can sign up to be alerted when it becomes available in your area. And if you’re a busy, on-the-go woman looking for a side job, you can become an Instacart shopper, filling other people’s orders and delivering them for extra cash. Download it from the App Store or Google Play .

6. ParkMe


Do you dread having to drive downtown? Finding parking is a chore at best and a nightmare at worst.

But once you download the ParkMe app, parking woes will be a thing of the past. This app helps you make the most of your time by getting you to your destination in the fastest time possible. It helps you avoid delays by showing you the closest available parking spaces, and also helps you compare prices of parking garages so you can get a great deal as well.
