Technology has done a lot for us over recent years, with the surge in mobile resulting in a vast number of new, hi-tech apps that help us in our daily lives. From managing our health to having fun on the go – there’s bound to be an app that suits your needs.
However, what about our professional lives? As it happens, there are a huge number of apps available today that are designed to increase productivity, keep users organized and enhance motivation at work.
Here are just five of the top picks for keeping your work productivity at its optimum level.
Do you ever browse the web while you should be working? It is okay, we won’t tell 🙂
But when you get distracted reading an article, it often leads to another – taking valuable time away from important tasks.
With Pocket, you can save an app or page to view later – after the working day is done. The app will even sync across devices, saving you time as you catch up off the clock!
Evernote has been around for a few years now, yet still continues to join top app lists on a regular basis. Why? Because it does what it says on the tin, so to speak.
Evernote allows you to store all your important notes in one place and organize them in a way that suits your working style.
Users can set up multiple notebooks, use tags, add dates and even save clippings from the web to stay organized – great if you are working on a complicated project.
If you are in charge of managing the accounts at your workplace – or even running a business of your own, Expensify is for you. The app allows you to take photos of your receipts so you won’t have to store the physical copies.
It then automatically scans each image and uses the details to generate an expense report on your outgoings in seconds.
By using an app to take care of your finances for you, you’ll save even more time that could be spent on projects themselves.
Trello is more than just a to-do list. You can create cards and boards either for your own use or for your entire team to keep things organized.
You’ll be able to create and share lists, upload files and have multiple discussions to ensure every project is taken care of.
If you haven’t tried the Pomodoro technique yet, it’s time to give it a shot. It creates a systematic approach to productivity and encourages you to meet each goal within a realistic set period.
While working against the timer, you’ll soon find yourself working more efficiently and battling away any distractions.
By using apps to keep your working life organized, you’ll be able to spend less time getting it together and more time working hard on the job!
