Top 5: Free Productivity Apps

top-5If you use your smartphone or tablet to catch up on work while on-the-go, you need to use reliable apps.

I have received a few messages in the past asking me about productivity apps and since I compiled something similar for Marie Claire a few months ago, I thought I’d share the list.

Evernote-logo1. EVERNOTE
Evernote lets you take notes, save images, record audio and more. Work collaboratively; collect recipes online; keep your travel plans in one place. Syncs across all devices.
Platform: Android, BlackBerry, iOS, Windows Phone.

dropbox-logo2. DROPBOX
A free Dropbox account gives you 2GB of cloud storage. Use it to share large files instead of email, and access it on any device. Earn more space by referring friends.
Platform: Android, BlackBerry, iOS (Windows, Mac, Linux).

Google-Logo3.GOOGLE SEARCH
If you’re in a hurry to run a search, or can multitask really well, or just prefer the novelty, speak your query into the Google Search app via Voice Search instead of typing.
Platform: Android, BlackBerry, iOS, Nokia (S60 V3).

rtm-logo4. REMEMBER THE MILK
Manage your tasks and to-do lists from anywhere with the option to tweet or email tasks. Sync to your web profile once a day. Organise tasks according to priority.
Platform: Android, BlackBerry, iOS.

bump-logo5. BUMP
Share contact information, photos, videos and files by bumping your phone to your computer. The easiest way to transfer files without a cable.
Platform: Android, iOS.
