Have you ever heard of Moore’s Law? If you have ever wondered why your smartphone is so much faster and overall better than your smartphone from 3 years ago, then you have a pretty good idea of Moore’s Law.
This law states that technology is growing at an exponential rate. If you look at it on a graph, it is a curve that starts at the bottom left and curves upward until it is almost vertical. There are many reasons why technology keeps getting better and better, and one of those reasons is that the same technology has made us more and more productive.
If you want to increase your productivity by leveraging the power of technology, then I suggest you read on to discover which apps out there can give you the edge that you are looking for.
Evernote is not new by any means, but boy is it ever useful. If you are not familiar with Evernote, it is an app that keeps notes, photos, doodles, and more. The beauty is that it can be accessed from multiple devices, which makes it ideal for those brilliant ideas you might get while on the go.
The beauty of the app is really how seamless it is. The interface is smooth, and it is clear that they put some serious thought into their UX.
If you have ever wanted to carry with you large swaths of documents or data, but did not have the storage necessary for it, then meet Dropbox. Dropbox has been around for a while as well, but there is a reason for its unshakable presence.
Same as with Evernote, they have taken a potential headache and made it simple. What is more, they made it easy to navigate and work with, and that is, after all, what we all want in an app. What makes this app truly attractive is the ability to share large files with colleagues or clients, ensuring that the days of sending zip files over email are long gone.
Whether you are into iOS app development or any other form of coding, you will surely enjoy this app. Nothing boosts your productivity more than being able to code when you are just sitting wasting time.
For example, if you have a morning commute by train that takes 30 minutes, Code To Go allows you to make the most out of that time that you might otherwise have spent aimlessly scrolling through Facebook or Instagram. You can then really get ahead of your work and look like a Rockstar at the office.
If you’re creating content for your various online platforms on a daily or even weekly basis, then this is an app you want to be utilizing. Instead of navigating through 3-4 different apps to obtain the edits you desire, Instasize does everything in one. Professionally edit photos, videos, and create stunning text visuals without ever having to close the app. Available for free download on both IOS and ANDROID.
In this day and age, the excuse to not be productive will no longer be valid. The truth is that technology has afforded us the ability to push ourselves beyond what we once thought was impossible. The great news is that the quality of apps out there has given us the ability to truly push the envelope and develop a brighter future.
