Whether you’re working on a New Year Resolution, or want to find ways to get more done, here is a list of apps that can help increase your productivity for 2020.

1. Slack (Communication)

Slack is a great way to stay connected with your team wherever you may be. Chat one-to-one or with your group, and create channels where you can have focused conversations.

2. Mindly (Mind Maps)

Track your creative ideas with Mindly, a tool for mind mapping. Formulate topics and subtopics effortlessly, then print or share from the app.

3. Trello (Team Management)

Trello visually organizes your projects, much like a whiteboard full of sticky notes does. You can create boards and add cards to help you keep track of what’s done, in progress, or to-do.

4. Spotify (Music)

Spotify makes the list because it’s no secret that listening to music can help increase productivity. Check out a pre-made playlist for productivity (or whatever mood you’re in), then get to work! 

5. Todoist (To-Do List)

Todoist helps you complete your to-do’s by synching tasks across platforms and devices. More than a to-do list, the Todoist app makes it easy to add tasks quickly, set reminders, and manage your days in a way that helps increase productivity.

Strides allows you to track anything from habits to SMART goals, with helpful reminders to hold you accountable and charts to keep you motivated.

7. Pind (Task Manager)

With Pind, you can do much more than create to-do lists. You can set location-based task reminders, collaborate on shared tasks, and even get directions to help you plan and carry out your tasks more efficiently.

8. Otter (Voice to Text)

The Otter app allows you to record live audio, but it also lets you search, play, edit, organize, and share your conversations from any device. Use Otter for more efficient note-taking, whether it’s a lecture, business meeting, or organizing your thoughts.

 

9. Fabulous (Daily Motivation)

The Fabulous app aims to help users create a healthier, happier life by building on daily habits and routines. Create your own goals, stay motivated, and gain self-discipline with science-based sessions that can transform your life.

10. Flora (Team Focus)

The Flora app helps you (and your team) stay focused by planting ‘seeds’ that potentially flourish into healthy trees of progress. It’s simple. Plant a seed when it’s time to focus. Stay on task, and the seed will grow. But, should anyone use their phone, the tree dies.

11. Adobe Scan (Document Scanner)

Plus, there are 100+ app integrations to help cut down on distractions. 

14. Acorns (Investments)
