Skyrocket your productivity with apps!

24 HOURS… 24 hours is all you get to get everything done in a single day. While being productive is key to racking up accomplishments and becoming successful, it is not always as easy as it seems.

24 HOURS… 24 hours is all you get to get everything done in a single day. While being productive is key to racking up accomplishments and becoming successful, it is not always as easy as it seems. The amount of distractions that can impact our productivity is astonishing. Whether you look left, right or ahead, you will always find something that will distract you; your productivity will diminish and in turn, your chances of success will suffer.

Thankfully, there are many available apps that can help you stay on track with your goals. In this article, I wanted to cover a few apps which aid my productivity on daily basis – and they can help you too!

Airmail 3

Airmail 3 is an awesome calendar app that can help you organize your mail effectively, efficiently and effortlessly.

“Slack brings team communication and collaboration into one place so you can get more work done…” Whether you work from the comfort of your own home, your company office or a private island somewhere in the middle of an ocean, the Slack app allows you to effectively manage your projects and collaborate with your coworkers. Topic threads allow you to organize all modules of projects, communicate changes, and lead discussions with coworkers involved in the same task.

Cost: FREE – $15/month (based on subscription)


The Pocket is an awesome app that allows you to save any online content for later. I constantly come across articles and news that I have no time to read at a given time but want to come back to later. Rather than having to look for the content all over again, Pocket allows you to save the content in a user-friendly dashboard. Revisiting articles has never been so easy. In addition, the Pocket app is available on a range of devices, meaning if you find and save an article on your laptop you can then read it on your iPhone.

Cost: FREE
