Until a few years ago, we all relied on a regular notepad and pen to keep track of everything that needs to be done. Not so in this day and age. Productivity apps are sprouting up everywhere, and it is now our choice to pick the ones that work for us.
Here is a list of a few good apps that will help you boost your productivity at work.
Trello is a great tool that helps you organize just about everything from your household tasks to a project at work.
You can keep track of your tasks up to the minutest details. For each task (or card, as it’s referred to in Trello), you can set a deadline, create checklists, upload files, and assign it to an individual for completion.
This tool is browser based, but also has apps for iPhone, iPad and Android users. We’ve been using Trello to manage our blog content, projects and marketing efforts for the past one month now, and find it quite helpful.

Dropbox is one of the most popular cloud-storage apps available, making it possible for you to access your files from any device. The app automatically backs up, synchronizes and shares photos and files that you save on the app, meaning you can access your documents from any location or device. Although an internet connection is required to sync all of your files initially, they are then accessible to you offline.
Some of the greatest advantages of using Dropbox are that it’s a great app for storing large files without using up the storage on your device and it’s also a quick and easy way to share documents with other people, even if they do not have a Dropbox account of their own. In addition to these, you can create and edit Microsoft Office files from your device and automatically back up your photos and videos.
