Top 5 Productivity Apps For iOS and Android
If you are a busy person, like most of us are, you probably don’t have time to read all of your emails, let alone an entire book! This is really a shame because there is so much to learn from books and as they say the world’s smartest people get their ideas from the great books. That is why the Blinkist is the perfect app for you. It contains the key insights of more than 2,500 bestselling nonfiction books in compelling packs that you can quickly read or listen to in under 15 minutes. Now you can get familiar with most of the bestselling books and at the same time amaze people around you with your knowledge.
During the last year, Trello really rose in its popularity thanks to its easy-to-use project management system. Whether you need to organize office projects, team meetings, family celebrations or travel plans, Trello should be the app of your choice. It uses something called “boards” which are basically projects where you can use app’s graphics and visuals to represent and lay out your plans. You can use different colors for different people and activities, and you can even upload pictures or share your work with colleagues and family. The app supports collaborative work meaning your projects can be changed and arranged by anyone they are shared with.
3. PDF Converter Ultimate
This one can be a lifesaver. Imagine this, you are already late for your meeting, and on your way there you’ve realized that your presentation lacks some important information. Since it is in PDF form, there is no way to edit it on the go. What should you do? Well, you could use PDF Converter Ultimate. It allows you to convert PDFs to more than 20 popular file formats and vice versa for easy editing later. The app is extremely easy to use, and it provides excellent conversion results. You can convert documents right from your mobile device, Gmail attachments or supported cloud services like iCloud, Google Drive, Dropbox and the list goes on.
This list wouldn’t be complete without a note-taking app. Simply said, Evernote is one of the best out there. There is just so much that this app can do and we don’t think we’ll be able to cover it all. Obviously, you can create to-do lists with reminder notifications, but at the same time you can annotate your documents with a highlighter, or you can even use a pressure-sensitive pen if your screen supports it. Everything is backed up to a cloud so you can start your work on one device and finish it on another one. The app also has a built-in business card scanner which will automatically add your scanned cards to your contacts. We guess that this is something all the business people were praising for.
You wouldn’t be disappointed whichever cloud storage service app you choose. We use Dropbox in our company, so that’s why we are mentioning it here. It is one of the most popular cloud storage services in the market. You can easily upload all your files to a cloud and seamlessly access them wherever you are from any OS. The only requirement is that you have the Internet connection, but if you save your documents for offline usage, you won’t be needing the Internet connection at all. The app supports collaborative working meaning that you and your colleagues can work on the same document from different locations and devices.
