Great Apps for Tackling a To-Do List

Too busy to spend time on important but mundane tasks? Your smartphone may be able to help.

The Notarize app connects you with licensed notary agents who can confirm your identity, witness your signature via live video and apply an electronic seal. Then they’ll send the notarized document to your computer, where you can print it out.

This convenience comes at a cost: $25, versus $10 or less to get something notarized in person. In addition, some documents, including wills, are excluded.

ClipCall provides a way for homeowners to get quotes from contractors without picking up the phone. Record a short video describing the home improvement project, and the app matches you with local professionals. You’ll receive quotes from participating contractors, and payment is held in escrow until the project is completed.

ClipCall vets contractors to make sure they’re licensed, bonded and insured, but you should do your own homework, too. Ask for ref­erences, and check for complaints about the con­tractor with the Better Business Bureau and your state attorney general’s office.
