There are many different apps available for Android and iOS-based smartphones that can boost your productivity by offering easier ways to accomplish your daily tasks. These productivity apps also provide great opportunities for legal web marketers to cater to the ever-increasing number of smartphone users.
Here is a list of the 4 most popular free productivity apps that offer an easy-to-use user interface, but handle some complex tasks as well:
- Wunderlist specializes in organizing your tasks, and it makes it easy to share them with others so you don't have to waste time trying to keep track of who needs to be reminded of what. Once you set up an account with Wunderlist, you can sync your smartphone and other devices through their cloud-based system. When you make changes or create new a new task, it is uploaded automatically. It can even send you emails about upcoming tasks.
- Evernote is an app which helps you create notes, organize them, and share them with all of your other devices. You can take notes, capture photos, create lists, record voice notes, and have all of these available to you on any device with Evernote installed. For example, if you have Evernote on both your smartphone and home computer, you can save your research with Evernote at your home computer and access it with your smartphone or vice versa. The key here is the cross-platform compatibility that it offers.
- Dropbox is another powerful app for storing your files and images. Like Evernote, Dropbox provides access on various devices. As the name suggests, you simply drop any file into its special folders and it'll be automatically uploaded to the Dropbox servers (they offer free 2GB storage) and downloaded to your other devices with Dropbox installed.
- Google Drive is by far the most popular of the four and may be the most useful as well. Google Drive is essentially the Microsoft Word of the internet, but free (until you hit your storage limit). It also works in tandem with google hangouts, as you might imagine, which is another impressive productivity booster. Drive has become a near-universal tool across the corporate industry. Definitely take a look at this option when considering productivity boosters.
