My top 5 productivity apps

1. Any.DO

Anydo Icon This is brilliant. No more scrappy notes, no more forgetting to do things, now I have it all in Any.DO.

It gives daily planning and to-do lists, which syncs with the cloud so it works on all your devices and integrates with emails, calendar and Google tasks. It gives you alerts when you are due to do something, will schedule meetings for you and make calls, text and email. You can share lists with friends and colleagues, it even has speech recognition and to clear tasks you just need to shake it.

2. Timer +

timer +This is a handy little timer app.

It lets you set multiple timers at once – by the second, minute and hour. It’s got seven different alarms and you can save, label and reuse different times.

I love baking, so I use it when I’m cooking, and I’ve also saved the timer for my yoga stretches so I don’t have to reset it every time.

3. Truecaller

truecaller iconTruecaller is basically a phone directory, the difference is that instead of having to look up numbers in a large book – or login into a website – they’re all together in one app your phone.

It has a global database of billions of phone numbers, so not only can you look up anyone you need to contact, anywhere, but if someone calls you, it automatically tells you who it is, even if you don’t have their number stored in your phone.

4. Gmail app

Gmail-app-iconA lot of people don’t seem to realise the Gmail has its own app. I find it very handy as it means I can automatically access my emails without having to login via the website.

The app has loads of other features such as showing people’s profile pictures, organising mail by labelling and starring it, as well as allowing you to respond to Google+ posts straight from the app.

5. Evernote

EvernoteThis is a great app for saving ideas and inspiration and getting organised. All you have to do is write a note, record a voice reminder or take a photo of anything you want to keep note of, and it tags it, saves and syncs it and lets you search for it.

You can use it for anything – recipes, websites, good wine, business cards, receipts and recording white boards and flipcharts in meetings.

It will read the text in a photo, organises your notes by notebooks and tags, create to-do and tasks lists, email and tweet and share it all across all your devices.


So here are my favourite apps. What are yours? Any apps to add to my list?
