Best Productivity Apps Guide – Desktop & Mobile Apps
What are the best productivity apps? If you’ve ever taken the time to check out the amount of productivity apps there are available, you were most likely overwhelmed by choice.
I’ve taken the time to make a list of the best productivity apps there are, some of which I use myself, some of which that are simply highly rated but don’t apply to my own particular situations.
Some apps are for desktop, some are for mobile use only, some can be used on both.
Some apps are for Android, or Apple’s iOS, or both.
Trello | Desktop & Mobile: Android & iOS
Trello can be used to set up just about anything, completely customized: tasks, to do lists, taking notes and much more. You start off by creating a board where you can either invite other people (team members), or just start off by yourself. On this board you can create lists, which you can fill with cards. There are several cards you can choose from: tasks, ideas, pictures, notes and checklists.
By using the drag and drop system build into the app, you can easily adjust and move around the lists and cards. Add team members to a list, add cards with tasks, fill out a due date, and voilà, you’re ready to go.
Pocket | Desktop & Mobile: Android & iOS
There are many great blog posts and articles to be found on the Intenet. Ever stumbled upon one, even though you should be doing something else? By using Pocket, you can save these blog posts or articles to read them later, either offline or online.
Saving blog posts, articles, pictures or videos for later becomes easy by using this great app. Excellent for frequent blog posts and articles readers.
LastPass | Desktop & Mobile: Android & iOS
One of my personal favourites.
LastPass basically is a vault for your usernames and passwords. LastPass will end the time where you had to press forgot password? in order to set up a new password. LastPass remembers your usernames and passwords, and can also create unique passwords for you when you sign up for anything.
By synching the app with your browser history, LastPass will automatically fill out the usernames and passwords you already had within your browser history. The next time you go to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, LastPass will make sure you won’t have to enter any details.
The beauty of LastPass lies in the only password you have to remember, and that’s the password to access the vault. Instead of having to remember 100 different passwords, you only have to remember one. There is also a cool feature involved called Secure Notes, with which you can store important information to somebody else in an encrypted form.
Evernote | Desktop & Mobile: Android & iOS
Awesome taking notes app in which you can upload a wide variety of items: basic text, pictures, audio and video. When you’re using multiple devices, you can easily synchronise the items you’ve stored across all devices. Evernote allows you to easily share items with other people. Evernote is free of use, although it does limit the amount of data you can upload every month to 60 MB. You can easily upgrade your account when you want to upload more data each month.
Dropbox | Desktop & Mobile: Android & iOS
Probably the best known and most popular cloud storage application out there. Save just about anything to Dropbox’s cloud storage, and easily share it with whoever you feel like. Dropbox functions like a drawer in which you keep certain files, notes, documents and other data, which you can pull out of the drawer from anywhere you are.
An alternative to Dropbox is Google Drive, which I personally use after having used Dropbox for a couple of years.
HabitBull | Mobile: Android & iOS
If you’re a productivity geek, you’ll like HabitBull. For me it’s one of the best productivity apps out there. Simply because it keeps me on track with my goals, reminds me when I’m slacking, and gives me a sense of accomplishment when I reach my goals (and exceed them).
Sometimes it feels like a game, which makes it somewhat more fun. Getting rid of bad habits is hard, adding some positive habits is also hard, but HabitBull makes sure that their part is done. Now it’s up to you to keep up the good work.
I’m fully aware that there are alot of other great and comparible productivity apps out there. I’ve listed the apps I feel are great based on my own needs, and by going through the apps successful people recommend.
If you feel that others and I should absolutely use a certain app, please do tell in the comment section.
