Staying productive is an important part of every part of your life, whether you are in the office or out of the office. Unfortunately, the majority of people only know about the apps that will keep you focused in the office. Today we are going to look at some of the top apps to keep you productive outside of the office.
Wunderlist is the to-do list app that covers everything. The lists are super flexible and can have attachments to help you keep track of everything that needs to be done. Reminders can be sent to you via email and/or app notifications to remember to cover every item on your to-do list.
When you use Wunderlist you can share your to-do list with your family and/or work depending on the lists. They can also collaborate on your list too.
Evernote is one of the best note-taking apps out there. No matter what device you are on, you are able to access your notes. Just about anything can be added to a note, lists, pictures, screenshots, and even webpages. It works great for both home and work.
If you need to have separate notebooks, don’t worry. You can categorize your notes down to different subjects or topics.
Whether for work or home, we come across webpages and information that we want to save on the internet. Pocket allows you to grab pages and store them for offline viewing. It is like a more powerful version of bookmarking. You can save to pocket using a browser plugin or by using the share button on many websites.
Having secure passwords is always important but so many of us don’t do it because we can’t remember our passwords. LastPass is a secure password manager that can keep track of all of your passwords, whether you use them for home or work. It will even autofill the username and password on webpages as long as you have the plugin on.
Don’t worry about remembering your passwords and usernames on your mobile device either. LastPass has a powerful mobile app too.
We all like to have our information and files available wherever we are. With MetaCtrl Sync we can do that. The app takes all of your files from your phone and syncs them with your computer. That way all of your data can be accessed on your favorite cloud services. You don’t have to stop work on something just because you switch from devices.
Most of us don’t have a scanner at home or when on the go. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t scan documents. CamScanner uses your phone to take pictures of documents. The app then crops the document to get rid of all of the backgrounds. You can tweak the cropping before it processes the image to make sure that you get everything you need.
It also features an OCR tool to allow you to turn your documents into digital text. While converting to text it allows you to edit it and make it perfect. At the same time as you press the save button, the document is saved to the cloud for you. You can completely get rid of the need to wait until you get to the office to scan documents.
Using these top productivity apps you can keep yourself organized whether you are at home or on the go. Each app was handpicked because they are both powerful and well-reviewed. You won’t be getting a bad app when you pick an item off the list.
