I'm an apps addict.
As a strategy - I select my working tools only after making sure they have a solid mobile version so I can be on top of everything 24/7, regardless to where I am.
Many of these apps are not new. Some have millions of users, and yet many people I talk to are not familiar with many of them, so I decided to create a list of all the important apps I use.
You won’t find Facebook, Twitter, Uber or Waze in this list as those are too basic.
You will find however, a nice collection of apps that will increase your productivity and make you forget about your computer...
Tier 1: Must Have Apps
My favorite feature: listening to my articles while I drive.
MeisterTask is yet another Kanban board, but the web, mac, iOS and recently Android apps are simply much better than anything else in that space.
One of the best productivity tools ever, especially when dealing with small teams (1-10).
Trello can turn any process into a visual and manageable one (tasks, bugs, customer service, user stories, and more).
Tier 2: The ‘Fall Asleep’ Apps
I use the Quora mobile app (and the website) because I found that for certain topics - Quora provides a better and faster answer than Google.
Tier 3: Productivity Apps
CrunchBase mobile app
Tier 4: Email Apps
- It’s has the best UI, and when you spend so much time using an app - you want a good user experience.
- It has a really smart way of cleaning low priority emails semi-automatically.
- It has a ‘Radar’ view that keeps track of all open threads that require follow ups, answers and other activities - automatically.
