I don’t know about you, but I happen to think the iPhone is one of the best inventions ever. Do you realize how much stuff I used to have to lug around? As an event planner on the go, I’m happy to condense as much functionality as possible into my pocket.
So, I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite iPhone apps that will help you plan your next event.
Punchbowl.com is a popular online platform that will help you plan a party from start to finish. Now they’ve gone mobile. This handy little app allows you to send invitations, track RSVPs, interact with your guest list, shop, stay organized, and more.
If you really want a robust tool, go for SuperPlanner. This user-friendly app will help you handle everything from venue capacity to seating configurations to food and beverage counts to staffing needs. It’s amazing.
If you’re not already using Evernote, now is the time to jump on the bandwagon. It’s won lots of awards from geeky types who pay attention to all the apps because it’s awesome at helping you capture information and keep it organized – written notes, pictures, audio recordings, etc. Very cool.
Planning events requires a lot of running around town. Going from place to place can be a true time suck. This app helps you save time by keeping you updated on traffic slowing accidents, road work, and even weather. (I really hate traffic! Don’t you?)
PurpleTrail is another event planning app that has some interesting features. You can get your guests involved in the planning process with a consensus mode that helps you pick the best date and a venue.
The last thing you want to do is go over your budget, right? When planning a party, it’s way too easy to get caught up in the excitement and not realize how much money you are spending. Using this app is a fantastic way to track your spending, balances, and transactions.
So there you have just a few of my favorite apps I thought I’d share with you. What are your favorite party planning apps?
