Stay Focused And Organized With These Productivity Apps For Android
Do you sometimes feel like you have a million of things to do and everything just keeps piling up with no end in sight?
Things do get out of hand from time to time, and it’s important to have the right management tools at hand to make sure that small things do not get in the way of bigger accomplishments. To keep your daily life organized you have to develop good habits, plan ahead and make use of all the help you can get. Your phone can be a good source of aid and ideas as well. Just take a look at our list of Android applications for organizing your life and take your pick.
Recsue Time is an app that manages one of the most important things in your life – your mind. Or, more precisely, how it behaves online. We may invest a lot of time into planning our day, work-outs and weekends, but once we get behind the computer/mobile screen we tend to lose track of time. Let’s admit it, planning our digital lives may be the hardest kind of planning and here’s where Rescue Time comes in. The app tells you exactly how you spend your digital time and you may be surprised (shocked!) to find out how much that YouTube subscription to “Cute Kittens Weekly” is actually costing you. The application tracks how much time you spend using each application or visiting a website and puts all that information into a comprehensive and easy graph (that might reveal things that you are too ashamed to admit). At the end, you’ll be able to get a clear picture of where your time goes and make changes where necessary.
We’ve all had these moments. You are walking on the street, minding your own business when suddenly you get the best idea of a lifetime. Whether it is a “follow-me suitcase” or a “self-walking dog”, your ideas deserve a chance at commercial success. Cogi makes sure you believe in yourself and your ideas or, at least, keep track of them till you get home. Next time you feel that yellow bulb light up over you head – open up Cogi and record your idea. Additionally, you can use the app to make audio notes and reminders for yourself as well as record important conversations with colleagues and clients to make sure you remember all project details later.
Shoeboxed Receipt Tracker
This cleverly-named app will help you avoid a painful death of drowning in your receipts and expense slips. Instead of slowly crossing the threshold into hoarding by piling up cardboard boxes of receipts – all you have to do is snap a picture of the paper slip and it will be neatly stored in the application for when you will need to write that expense report. Speaking of which, with Shoeboxed you can actually prepare the reports themselves and send them out to interested parties. Shoeboxed Receipt Tracker is a life-saver if you are a frequent business traveler or have to deal with lots and lots of pink slips.
It’s Pomodoro Time!
There are lots of applications out there that can help you organize various aspects of your life. But organizing yourself is a skill, which, like any other skill, takes time, training and consistency.
It’s Pomodoro Time is an app that will train you to stay organized and focused, eliminating all the distracting time-sucks and keeping you concentrated on what’s important. The way the app works is based on the Pomodoro principle, allowing for 25-minute long periods of concentration, separated by short breaks, which are meant to improve mental productivity. With this application you will be able to set working session times and get notifications when it’s time to take a break and then – get back to work. It can completely change your approach to time management and let you accomplish more in the day.
