You’re busy, we get it

You’re a professional and you’re busy. You don’t have time to take the long way to work, for example, or not be fully focused on the tasks at hand. Being productive can mean the difference between profit and loss. Having a simple-to-use app to help you reach your productivity goals can make your life so much easier.

So, with that in mind, here are three awesome productivity apps to choose from.

1. Asana
– This app allows you to create groups and then assign groups assignments. You can keep track of it all from your phone.  You can see which tasks have been assigned to which team members, when they were assigned, when the task should be completed, and whether or not each task has been completed yet.  Asana is all about organization. And the best part of it all is that you can see updates in real-time.

2. Due
– You most likely have hundreds of tasks to complete each week, but if you added them all to your calendar, you and your calendar would be easily overwhelmed. The Due app allows you to quickly set reminders for your everyday tasks, the tasks that you wouldn’t normally program into your phone’s calendar. One of the most convenient features of this app is that it will bring up all your reminders in one list. This means you don’t have to scroll through your calendar trying to find specific reminders. It’s all right there at your fingertips.

3. Do

– Just like Asana, the Do app allows you to keep on top of your assignments and tasks, those with whom you’re working, and what has been accomplished already. This way, you won’t waste time by working on something that’s already been completed. You’ll receive instant notifications if someone is working on it or if a task has already been completed. What could be more productive than that?

The right productivity apps can make your business day and even your business better organized, effective, and connected. When you can achieve consistent productivity, you will have achieved something many people and businesses can never maintain. Find the perfect app to complement your workday and you’ll be a few steps ahead of the competition.

    Ever since the iPhone came out, I’ve tried a number of ToDo list solutions. However, ever since starting to use Daylite, I find it difficult to run my business on two different platforms. Daylite easily takes care of tasks and calendar items within the same program. I love the ingenuity of some of the these system apps and web apps. But more and more productivity for me means and all-in-one app solution.
