Living a life without technology is impossible for me, so naturally, I am always on the lookout for new apps to help me get things done and do them well.
I categorized them according to what function they serve and also included a small review of the apps.
Let’s explore the list
Before we start: A little disclaimer. These are MY productivity applications and while I believe you could gain something from using them, they might not work for you! Be sure to evaluate them before deciding if they’re right for you!
1. Google Calendar
Anything digital over the calendar is leverage. I’m using Google Calendar for a long time and honestly, I can’t think of a life without it.
What I’m using it for:
- my weekly task management for work
- my to-do’s and scheduled tasks.
- Review: It does almost everything I need in a calendar. It lets me sync it with my phone and many apps to create a flexible platform that I can work from.
- The most important thing, It’s FREE!
Honestly, Google Calendar is the basis of everything that I do to become more productive.
Assigning a daily task list is essential. It helps me to start my day by focusing on what needs to be done, instead of thinking about it throughout the day.
I plan my day before going to bed by creating a to-do list.
I use Todoist for this task, but you could also use other task management applications.
I use it for recurring tasks and to organize tasks by due dates.
I Sync Todoist with Google calendar to have a complete task management system.
Primarily, I use this app for scheduling meetings with others or a group.
I just send them a link to book a slot.
The best thing is that it’s free! It also has a nice chat feature, which I use for organizing meetings. This app syncs with Google Calendar.
This application is a life-saver, especially if you need to schedule a lot of meetings! It’s very simple to use, and it’s also FREE!
I don’t use it as much as other applications, but Notion is a pretty cool tool. I use it for personal notes and projects management. I run my content calendars, Finances, and personal projects on it.
The best part, I can share this with my team. I like Notion because of its simplicity. I can quickly jot down some notes or make a project and share it with my team in no time.
You can try Notion for FREE! It also has a nice-looking UI.
I use this application to track my daily activities. I track my working hours and the applications that I use in a day with this application, which helps me to understand where I’m spending my time.
I use that data to optimize my next week’s schedule.
It’s free, but you can upgrade to the pro version when your needs become more complex.
6. Pabbly Connect
Automating tasks is one of the most powerful things you can do to optimize your time and simplify your work.
With Pabbly Connect, you can automate tasks like meetings, e-mails, and a lot more.
It’s not free at all, but it has a friendly UI and very good customer support. This application helps to integrate two different applications which don’t have an integration feature.
If you’re not using a password manager then you’re living a really dangerous life.
Password managers are very powerful. They can generate strong passwords for you, stores them securely, and save you from the pain of forgetting passwords.
It can help you to save up your mental energy by reducing the friction in your life.
A tool I’m looking for;
- Universal Clipboard
This is my current list of applications. I always try new applications and add them to my list when I find something worth using.
I hope you like it
