Things are moving fast nowadays and we need to be more productive to keep up. Mobile technology makes it a lot easier for this to happen and we wanted to highlight the 10 awesome apps for increasing productivity.
Some of them are so cool they will make your daily activities a game. They are only available on the iPhone and iPad, but we are sure android alternatives are also available.
Daedalus Touch is a beautiful writing app packed with top notch editing features that put the focus on writing not the app.
Editing just got fun. This is truly a simple app that will take care of your fast and correct writing.
Sunrise is our new favorite calendar app. It’s easy to use, looks great, and integrates locations with Google Maps.
Scraps organizes your thoughts. Have you had those moments you just could not remember what you were about to say? or you forgot that awesome idea you had the day before? Well, those moments are about to disappear. Now you can jot down whatever you have in mind and just come back to it later when you have some more time.
We’re obsessed with Carrot. The sadistic to-do list keeps us coming back every day itching to check off another thing from our list. Carrot is unique in that it gets mad at you when you don’t get the things you’re supposed to do done.
With carrot you will feel like you have your own personal human productivity trainer, who is not afraid to get a bit angry to get you to finish what you are supposed to.
Price: $0.99 (currently on sale for half off)
Thinglist is a simple place to remember things. Don’t think of Thinglist as a to-do list instead its a place to organize books you want to read, ideas to remember, people, products and more.
Inkflow is an app for those who think more visually. The app allows you to actually draw out ideas with the ability to export creations to PDF and JPEG formats.
Now this is what we call awesomeness. Vision is the one thing that creates marvels. Inkflow will get your ideas to the next level, helping you visualize them.
1Password helps you to never forget your passwords again. Don’t be discouraged by the price, for what this app can do it’s certainly worth it. 1Password remembers all of your passwords so you don’t ever have to type one in again. Everything is done securely so that you don’t have to ever use the same password twice too.
You now how ugly it gets when you forget what the password was for the site you need to log in right now. Then you restore it, but after a while you forget another one. This app will end this immediately.
CoBook is a non-destructive address book. This means that whatever you do in the app does not negatively affect your stock iPhone address book. CoBook is good because its easy to use and updates contacts with current pictures, emails and phone numbers. Besides that you can stay on top of your contacts by also viewing their latest tweets.
Cue helps organize your day. The app links all your accounts like Gmail, Calendar, Twitter, Dropbox, and other networks to help you get a realistic view of what your day will look like. Cue is a centralized place to know what’s coming up next.
Habit List wants to help you form good habits. Each day you can check off a particular task you’ve accomplished and see how close you are to forming a habit. There’s even flexible scheduling so you don’t get penalized for not doing something each day.
