The intricate details of event planning can be complex, but tech tools make it easier than ever to throw a sophisticated business event or fun family affair. These four phone apps provide services that take the headache out of party planning so that the host can relax and enjoy the celebration, stress-free.
This note-taking app seamlessly syncs across all devices and helps planners get organized with folders, labels, and other intuitive tools. There are even specific event planning templates that cover pre-planning brainstorms to organizing post-event feedback. Users can file written notes, attachments, images, and even voice memos. Best of all, it’s free for personal use, though more robust feature packages are available for businesses and power planners.
