    Shared Tasks, To-do List & Reminders on iPhone, Android, & Web | Astrid

    When I switched from an iPhone to an Android phone I needed to find a good task manager that would work on an android phone. I really like this app and when I use it in conjunction with the Chrome web browser I am able to turn anything on the web or my email into a task.

    Android's best to-do list now available on iPhone, iPad, the Chrome Store and the web. Unique reminders, clean design, and ability to add tasks by email make it perfect forpersonal use, sharing lists and team project management.

    Pocket (Formerly Read It Later)

    Pocket (Formerly Read It Later)

    I use this to save articles that I really want to read, but don't have the time at the moment to read it. I also use it to save articles that I like so I can go back for reference. I then am able to send to Evernote for further access when I need it.

    When you find something you want to view later, put it in Pocket.

    Calendars+

    Calendars+

    I just love this app. I have been using it since I got my first iPhone and continue to use it on my iPad. The fact that I can see my Google calendars and keep track and move appointments with no hassle makes it priceless. It is so much better than the calendar app that ships with an iPhone or iPad.

    "Calendars by Readdle supports everything you can find in Google Calendars"

    Habit Streak

    Habit Streak

    I found this gem when I got my android phone. I really like how I can just add habits that I am trying to establish and be reminded daily and then see my progress to developing good habits. A real must have if you want to stick to something. Which consistency helps you to be more productive.

    ToDo Log is a to do list and not to do list in one. You assign points (either negative or positive) to tasks; then work to get the highest score over time by both doing things you want to do and avoiding those you shouldn't do.

    Trello

    Trello

    I recently started using this when I got my Chromebook. I really like how everything is displayed like index cards so that you can see the big picture.

    Organize anything, together. Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. In one glance, know what's being worked on, who's working on what, and where something is in a process.

  1. Awesome – I love that this list will be evolving over time. I’ve voted up my faves, and added one of my own.
    Janet Barclay recently posted..The Absolute Best To-Do List Software for WindowsMy Profile

    • Thank you for your contribution Janet! I will have to check that one out. I haven’t heard of it. That’s why I wanted to make a list that can be added to by everyone and we can share our top helpful apps.

    I’m an iPad user and at work sometimes I use Evernote but during meetings, I prefer Beesy, for me it’s the best productivity app for iPad: http://www.beesapps.com/market-usage/beesy-in-top-10-of-productivity-apps/. It’s a great tool for my everyday life at work, help to sort out and don’t forget a thing on my differents projects. Very useful also in meeting with I can import, annotation and share my files with people. Take note and send minutes at the end of the meeting by mail very quickly and easily.

    I discovered this tool on Trunk Evernote, so I think it’s can be interesting.

    This is a great list, but in addition to organizing things, you need smart software to search for it. I recently started using a new desktop search engine that is the most powerful I’ve ever used… wicked smart. http://www.grappledata.com/aikin

  5. Nicole Jones says:

    I’m in search of an app that converts what I speak to text on the page. I got Evernote to do it once, but can’t figure out how I did it. Do you know of one.

    • Nicole,
      there is an app called Dragon Speaking Naturally and it is free. That converts speech to text. I haven’t used it in a long time because in Evernote once you make a new note you will see at the top a photo icon, a camera icon and a mic icon. If you touch the mic you can speak into it and record sound. If you have Siri on your iPad it will convert text to speech. On my android phone the mic is automactically offered through Google to convert your speech to text. But try the Dragon Speaking Naturally plug in. They also have one that is called Dragon to Go.

  6. Hi,
    I am in searching app for listen a music in my iPhone and i think Pandora is the best app for me to listen a music. Thanks for sharing the bunch of apps.

    Hi there! I welcome your list. Productivity activities become the daily job in our working schedule. I am regular user of these kind of apps and always search for more new and trendy. No doubt in 2013, evernote was a great productivity app but now in 2014, I would like to share with another amazing note-taking app named as “Notionnote”. It is a great app for me. You can download it from https://itunes.apple.com/ie/app/notionnote/id811114900?mt=8
    Cheers!
