When we talk about productivity, we often mean getting more work done in the allotted time period.
In today’s time and age, the definition is slightly different.
Productivity is getting more work done while managing other things like note-taking, replying to messages, travel bookings and other mundane tasks.
Luckily enough, mobile application designers have also been through the “productivity” issue and have therefore developed virtual assistants who fall into a category called “Productivity apps“.
Top 5 Productivity Apps to Use Every Day
1. QuickVoice Recorder
How many business ideas can you discuss and remember? The QuickVoice Recorder designed for the iOS as well as android lets you take voice notes and record these ideas.
When you are on the go, you can even send voice messages as your record them. The best part about the latest version of this app is that even when you are recording something, you have the liberty to use other applications as well.
This iPhone app is a boon, especially for those who are managing a multidisciplinary team. Sometimes, it is impossible to review the work that everyone has finished at the end of each working day.
The app will send you an evening email reminder and you take 30 seconds to reply what tasks you’ve ticked off that day. When you come back to work the next day, you will have a summarized report of what each member of the team has done. It’s as simple as that!
Do you have a set of tasks that you do not want to spend time on? Well, then you can use your own virtual assistant FancyHands. All you need to do is send a description of what you want done to the team at the app HQ.
Within a few hours, your task is completed and sent back to you. Say for instance, you need to segregate images into specific folders; you can send a message to the team with the specifications and the work is done.
The task won’t get “closed” unless you’re satisfied. This iPhone app basically connects you to a team of assistants who are available online.
For the globetrotting executives, this productivity app can save you a lot of time. With Skyscanner, you can get all the information that you need on available flights in one unified request.
The application categorizes these airlines on the basis of price and time so you can choose what you need. In addition to the airlines, it also connects you to car rental services. This is the best option to plan business trips without having to actually spend hours on it.
It’s useful for all executives who need to make frequent business trips and cannot manage their travel bookings without assistance.
5. Super Calendar
This is another application designed for the iPhone which can manage your schedules like a virtual assistant. You can sync this application to your Google or iPhone calendar and can arrange your calendar in an organized fashion and also assign relevant contacts for each task.
Most apps are compatible with most mobile, tabs and phablets and are very easy to download and are quite affordable.
These productivity apps help you get your desired tasks done fast and efficiently. That way, you can focus on things that you enjoy doing and that matter and reach your goals faster.
