Five apps for becoming more productive!



If you’re in the WordPress reader, and want to see the images of the apps, open it in your browser.

All of us have a lot of stuff to do with our lives. We have countless goals and numerous aspirations, but we usually pass on them because we’re procrastinating.

Most of the time, the reason for the procrastination and laziness is our phone.

But what if we could be more productive, and complete whatever we wanted?

Using our phone!

Well, you’re at the right place, because I’m going to tell you 5 apps for becoming more productive.


1. Evernote

Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Windows, Mac, Web

Evernote is an amazing app for taking notes and organizing your thoughts. I use this app a lot for jotting down ideas and taking important notes.

The best thing about Evernote is its level of organization. You can group different notes into notebooks, which makes organizing and navigating through notes infinitely easier.

It also has a web app and a Windows and Mac app which syncs with your phone, so you can seamlessly access your notes through different devices.

2. Collateral

Are you tired of to-do apps because they’re all the same? Try Collateral!

Collateral allows you to create notes and lists that live in your notification area.

You can create a Daily to-do list or a simple note with this app which stays in your notification area. This way, you don’t have to worry about setting up reminders on specific times, you’ll get the reminder whenever you open your phone.

Unfortunately, this app is available only on Android. But, you can try NoteDash as an alternative for iOS users.

3. 7 Weeks

7 Weeks is a simple habit and goal tracking app. The basic concept behind the app is that if you can continue a habit for 7 weeks, you can continue it easily afterwards.

Which is what the app helps you do, with a beautiful design.

This app is also only available on Android, so iOS users can try out “Way of Life,” it’s also a habit tracker, but it’s a bit different.

4. Trello

Trello is an app to organize all your projects. Trello can be used to organize a birthday party, plan the next house renovation and assemble your life goals.

You can create different boards and list cards on them to insert snippets of information. You can add other users on your board to contribute, basically it has lot of functionality.

It also has a web app, so like Evernote, you can seamlessly integrate between different devices of yours.

5. Forest

Lastly, we cannot just pretend that our phones are not going to affect our productivity after downloading a few productive apps, so Forest is an app to help you keep away from your phone and stay focused.

The basic idea is that you set a timer for the time you want to stay away from your phone, during that time a cute little virtual tree grows in the app and if you try to access your phone, the tree dies.

I’d never let that cute little tree die!

You also get a report of how much you focused through a forest having the different trees you grew, it’s cute!

  1. I’d love to have something like the Forest one to monitor my computer use. It would be a great motivator.

    I’m going to look at the 7 Week one. It would be helpful for my clients, although I’ve seen 21 days as the time period needed to create change. Seven weeks would definitely embed the change even deeper.

    Thanks for the post.

    1. Actually, Windows 7 and the newer computer systems have an option to set time limits to control when a certain account can be used.
      You should check it out, it’s a great app!
      Thanks for reading! 🙂
