You’re not alone. These days, it’s harder than ever to stay focused on tasks both big and small. Times are strange but life goes on. To help you stay focused on work, errands and to-do lists, this app — which runs on Mac, iPhone, iPad and more — brings together a ton of intuitive tools and features.
Staying on top of the day to day to-dos can be more complicated than it should. Ironically, that’s partly because of the technology that’s supposed to make our lives easier. We can do more in less time, so we expect to get more done. This task manager helps keep up by merging data and task management.
If you’ve ever done a freelance project, worked as a consultant, or spent any time being self employed, you know how important keeping track of time spent working can be. Some people prefer to log their time on a sheet of paper, while others have little routines to mark the start and stop of work. Hours for iPhone is a time tracking app designed to make logging your time easy.
Since that time, Reminders hasn’t evolved much. However, the type of task manager people are looking for has changed dramatically. TickTick offers greater control, more granularity, and is an all-around better to-do list app.
There are dozens of ways to write on iOS. Apple’s own Notes app offers a simple writing platform, while Pages allows for elaborate documents – complete with pictures. While both are good for certain tasks, more serious writers typically want something a little different. iA Writer offers more while doing less, making it the perfect text editor app.
The iPad has become a workhorse in the last few years. Since the introduction of the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, the transition from pen and paper to digital note-taking is more feasible than ever. GoodNotes 4 is one of the best digital note-taking and document-annotation apps available on iOS.
Time at the computer is a constant fight to stay focused. Keeping distractions at bay and your mind on task has a lot to do with your environment. So the right music can make all the difference.
Planning where to go and what sights to see can take the fun out of a vacation, but Google’s new app is ready to handle all the heavy lifting for you.
