Time Saving Productivity Apps
Having your smartphone or tablet with you at all times can help with many aspects of your life: you can keep up with current news, spend time playing fun games and stay productive no matter where you are traveling to. But sometimes, using your devices too much can actually make them less helpful on travel, as you can get sidetracked and waste time rather than doing what you need to do.
There are ways, however, where you can use your devices a little less and still get a lot of productivity out of them. There are plenty of Android apps that can help you save time and stay on top of everything you need to. Here are a few apps you can check out to see if they help you.
Workflow is a productivity app that lets you combine all of your tasks into one easy-to-use interface that will keep you on task and updated on all of the things you’re responsible for.
You can use the app for personal and work tasks so you always know what you need to do. You create a hierarchy of tasks, from the main project goal down to the smallest task you can think of to help get the job done.
If you want, you can share your tasks with others — say, business colleagues or family members — and they can add to it so you can stay in communication easily and efficiently. You can also set “condition” buttons that appear next to tasks that you or others can tap them when those conditions are met, such as “completed” or “In Progress.”
Automatic Call Recorder for Me
Sometimes, you just don’t have the time or you simply can’t take notes while you’re on a phone call and you’re forced to remember things like dates and times that could get mixed up. This app lets you record your calls so it eliminates the need for notes.
The app lets you choose which calls to record — you can set it to automatically record calls from your contacts or you can choose on a call per call basis — and you can listen to recordings as soon as they are completed. You can bookmark certain spots to remember important information and you can search through your recordings by phone number or subject.
You can learn more about the app on Google Play.
Evernote is one of the most popular organizational apps out there.
The app lets you keep everything you need on one easy-to-use interface. You can save nearly any type of file you can think of, so you can store photos, documents, videos and more for easy access. The app automatically syncs across all of your devices, so you can get access no matter where you are. It also features a widget for your home screen for quick access.
Let these apps help you stay productive, even when you want to spend a little less time on your devices.
