The new year has officially started, and it’s time for you to prepare to make this year a successful and productive one. Also, this is the perfect opportunity for you to start adding more positive habits into your life and you can do this little by little, and using all the resources you have, like the apps on your phone.
In today’s post, we’ll share a list of 7 apps that are guaranteed to make 2021 your most productive year.
If you are the kind of person that likes to plan your day ahead and doing lists, this app is for you. It allows you to create lists of your tasks, to-do and daily activities, also it sends you reminders when deadlines or due dates are close. What makes this app so unique? It has a feature that sends you a daily notification, so at certain hours of the day, you can review all your upcoming tasks and activities previously scheduled in your app.
Still, a lot of people are working from home, which means endless Zoom/Google Hangouts meetings. To keep track of all of them, and never schedule two at the same time, we recommend Calendly, an automated tool that helps you schedule meetings and notifies the guests in a simple way. It works with Google, Outlook, Office 365 and iCloud calendars, so there’s no excuse to have your meeting perfectly scheduled for this year.
Now it’s impossible to forget sending professional looking invoices to your clients with this app. It allows you to create and send them wherever you are. Also, it allows you to keep track of the ones you’ve previously sent, and finally, it gives you business performance insights, so you can have an idea of what is working great for you and your business.
If social media is an important part of your business or just part of your everyday life, it’s important to keep everything organized and ready to post, and that’s why Hootsuite is the best option to do it. It allows you to schedule your content on different platforms, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The best thing is that the content is automatically posted after you schedule it. Such a time-saver!
This app was created for people that enjoy reading content on the Internet. It allows you to save the websites you usually visit and bookmark the content you are interested in, including videos, articles and podcasts. Besides that, it lets you organize it in different categories, according to your convenience.
With Basecamp, you can have everything (literally everything!) in one place, and you can share it with your team. You can upload files, photos, videos and also, chat with your coworkers or team members on it. Also, you can leave comments or notes, as well as set up reminders for everyone to see. A perk of this app is that everyone on your team will be aware of what is going on with your projects and company updates.
If you struggle with staying focused on one activity, you need to download Forest, a fun app when everything starts by planting a seed and setting up your timer. If you stick to the time, the seed grows into a tree, but if you exit the app, it dies. Also, the app helps the planet too, since it has partnered with Trees to The Future to plant actual trees. Isn’t it lovely?
