Did you know that, according to Business of Apps, there are 2.3 million apps in Apple’s App Store, and no less than 2.7 million apps in Google’s Play Store? Fortunately, many of these apps were built with the goal of making our lives more productive.
Without further ado, here are seven must-have apps that are guaranteed to boost your productivity.
If your activity involves managing any type of project, you will be glad to discover that Trello has a free plan that allows you to create boards, lists, and cards, and then populate them with your data. Don’t forget to explore the templates; the generous community has created hundreds of them!
This app is a fantastic tool that allows teams to exchange messages and share files. So, if you need a virtual space that allows people working on the same project to streamline their interactions, Slack is the perfect solution. And have I mentioned that voice and video calls are already integrated into the platform?
The number of web pages is constantly growing, so finding the needed information has become harder and harder. And when we finally find what we need on the Internet, we need to save all those precious bits of info for later use. Evernote makes the last part of the process very simple, allowing its users to create notes that can incorporate web content, text, images, drawings, and more. Then, the notes can be tagged, organized, searched, and so on.
Data security experts recommend using a different password for each platform we’re using. However, many of us continue to use 1-2 passwords for all our accounts, putting them all at risk. Enter LastPass, a password manager that can generate strong passwords, and then store them securely. More than this, LastPass can also fill in the required login details, saving us a lot of time.
If you need a cloud-based storage app, Dropbox is the perfect solution. Use it to store files and then share them with others over the Internet. But the advantages that arise from using this platform don’t stop here: Dropbox allows people to collaborate in real-time, editing the same files simultaneously. And in case something goes wrong, you can easily recover older versions of the files, and even deleted files.
With Grammarly, you’ve got a competent writing assistant at your fingertips, at a price that won’t break the bank. The platform utilizes artificial intelligence to deliver useful feedback, offering a real-time spelling, grammar, and punctuation checker. Use the free version for a test drive, and you will probably want to upgrade to the paid one, which also offers detailed suggestions on how to improve your writing.
This list wouldn’t be complete without Notion, a relatively young platform that has taken the Internet by storm. This comprehensive productivity tool was designed with the sole goal of streamlining your workflow. Jot notes, create to-do lists, build databases and tables, set up wikis, manage projects… the sky is the limit! And have I mentioned image and video embeds? With its simple, user-friendly interface, Notion is guaranteed to make your personal and/or business life easier.
