Looking for ways to be more productive in the new year? We’ve compiled a list of apps to improve your focus, time management and output.
There’s so much to learn, and so much self-improvement we can achieve by reading. But it takes time to read books, which is why Blinkist was invented. With a library of over 2,000 bestselling nonfiction books, you can find what you are interested in learning about and Blinkist summarizes it and reads it back to you in audio or text within 15 minutes! This is excellent for researching or general learning. With this web and mobile app you could devour several books in a matter of weeks on your Samsung Galaxy Tablet from Buydig.com.
The app that will save you hours of social media management. It’s a scheduling app that lets you pre-post your social media posts and release them at a specific time. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are more active at certain times of the day and this app allows you to schedule your posts to be visible during the times and days your audience is online.
This nifty little app emails you every morning. It’s like having a virtual assistant that gives you a summary of what your day has in store for you. It will list your tasks and give you the times for each one, giving you a bird’s eye view of your day. It also has the ability to manage your team and remind relevant people of meetings, tasks and projects.
A lot of people wouldn’t be able to function without post it notes. Google Keep is like using post it notes for your phone, Samsung laptops and tablets because your notes can be synced across all of the platforms that you use. Simply create a note as it pops into your head, write down the task and pin it onto your screen. It’ll stay there until you complete the task and delete the note.
Genius Scan turns your Android or iOS device into a personal document scanner. Next time you’re handed a receipt, contract or other important piece of paper, simply snap it with your smartphone camera and Genius Scan will convert it to a high-quality PDF for easy archiving.
White noise helps people to sleep. But it’s also a great way to get focused while working from your HP All-In-One Desktop from Buydig.com. Noisli provides a list of productive sounds that put you in the zone and help you concentrate. Sound bites like crashing waves, coffee house chatter and rain noise will block out distracting sounds and wire your brain to focus on the task at hand.
