Apps don’t have to be a distraction. With constant advances in technology, a plethora of apps have been developed to help manage your work, organize your life, collaborate with teams, and more.
And, with the right apps at your fingertips, you can feel connected to your desk —and your team— while on the go. Here’s a list of our favorites:
One of the most highly praised productivity apps, Evernote allows you to store notes, information, documents, files, images and more —all in a convenient place. Powerful search capabilities allow you to access the information on the go from your phone, tablet, or computer.
Todoist is a task manager. Although it is a very minimalist service, you can create lists, email in tasks, color code tasks, and manage, collaborate and delegate tasks with colleagues. While on the go, Todoist can keep you in tune with your active projects.
If you’re on social media, you need Buffer. It allows you to schedule your posts and activities in platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, and more. You’ll save valuable time by pre-scheduling your social activity —while gaining a greater reach.
#4. Google Drive
With Google Drive, collaboration amongst team members and colleagues is easier. You can share and create documents and then work on them in real time. Google Drive also works as a great storage solution for documents, images and files —which can all be accessed on the go.
Similar to Google Drive, DropBox is a great storage and file sharing solution. It’s simple and easy to use and all files can be accessed while on the go via the mobile app.
For more robust project management, explore Basecamp. Super intuitive and easy to use, it allows you to manage projects with team members and even clients. You’ll be able to create projects, set to-dos, send calendar reminders, and delegate with ease from the mobile app.
#7. When I Work
Have hourly employees? The When I Work app allows you to schedule the workweek in minutes, find out where you need to fill in spaces, and review time sheets, all while communicating with your employees from your tablet or phone.
Trello is like Pinterest for business. Manage projects, store ideas, develop creative and business processes —the options are endless. And, Trello is great for those who enjoy a more visual experience. The mobile app allows you to keep current on projects while away from your desk.
We have entirely too many passwords to remember in a day. 1Password allows you to store logins, credit card info, passwords and more —safely, all in one place. If you’re looking to be more efficient, this can cut a tremendous amount of time out of your day.
Whether you’re out of the office for meetings or are taking a much-needed vacation, these mobile apps allow you to stay connected. What are your favorite on-the-go apps? Share them with us on our Facebook page!
