You’re almost certainly here because you examined for “best productivity apps”. I understand this impulse. They want to accomplish more in less time, which is such a universal feeling people can have at this particular time. The problem: Productivity remains intensely personal, and the arguments “productivity tools” mean many different things to dissimilar people. What everything for you may or may not work for me. Having written about productivity software for over a decade, I don’t think there are objectively “best” productivity apps.
All of our best app summaries are written by people who have spent much of their vocations using, testing, and writing about software. We apply dozens of hours researching and testing apps, using each app as it should, and judging them based on the criteria we set for the category. We never get paid for placement in our articles from an app or links to a website; We appreciate the trust readers place in us to provide authentic reviews of the categories and apps we review. For more details on our process, check out the complete overview of choosing apps to feature on the Zapier blog.
We all have things to do, at work and for the rest of our lives. But, in my opinion, the worst place to keep these things in your head. It’s just stressful: you’ll be reminded at random times that you should do something, and that reminder will lead to panic. But, on the other hand, writing down everything you need to do lets you make a plan and (most importantly) means you don’t take to panic.
Not everyone benefits from a dedicated to-do list app; some of the most productive people I know prefer sticky notes, email inboxes, or even spreadsheets. Nevertheless, I think it’s great as long as you have a place to log the things you need to do.
Unfortunately, there are so countless hours in the day that you have to budget for them. A calendar is how you do that. You can, of course, use a paper wall calendar, but with a calendar app, you can invite other people to an event. Plus, in a world where so many virtual meetings, calendar apps give you a convenient place to save the link to your Zoom call.
I take notes: before and during meetings; when searching for an item; when brewing beer. And I think most people have information that they need to refer to later that doesn’t quite meet the threshold of a “document”.
I’ve never tried working in the middle of an amusement park, but I imagine it would be a distraction. Internet is worse. Everything you can imagine is available, all provided by brilliant engineers who do their best to make you look more and more. So it’s understandable that you find it challenging to get things done in this setting, which is why distraction-blocking apps are so helpful.
My dentist tells me to brush my fangs twice a day, and I believe him, but I mostly only brush my teeth at night. So I used a habit tracker to change that.
These apps may look like a to-do list, but they are very different. You cannot add individual tasks to a habit tracker, only recurring charges. The idea is to set a goal to do something regularly and then track how often you do it regularly. Eventually, you encounter a streak that psychologically motivates you to stick with it until the habit becomes second nature
I want to read articles or watch YouTube videos all day. We all would. However, sometimes you have to do something else even though your friend just sent you a very, very interesting article. It is where apps come in.
