A writing tool is essential for our productivity system, and though pen and paper are fine, there will be a need to digitize the text in the future, so it is good to opt for a writing app.
Having an app that works on our PC/Laptop and automatically syncs all the files on our smartphone is the preferred way. A few options can be Microsoft Word, Google Docs, Apple Notes, Apple Pages, and Google Keep.
No matter how many communication apps like Slack, Zoom, Teams, or Whatsapp come, the email will not go away anytime soon. We need to optimize our email experience, deleting spam and unwanted emails, while unsubscribing to newsletters that snatch your attention.
It is a good idea to clear all your emails, reply to the urgent ones or mark them as read. Regarding what app to use, the omnipresent Gmail is the go-to app for email, both in the browser and the smartphone.
Time-tracking tools are a must for freelancers that have hourly billing have a psychological edge: Pressing the start button that counts our productive time makes us more focused and less inclined to open a Facebook tab on the side.
Apps like RescueTime provide a comprehensive report on the activities that take our time.
There are certain apps whose sole function is to block us from the time-wasting black holes of the internet: Reddit, Youtube, Instagram or Facebook.
These apps keep our eyes on the ball as we cannot access the places that provide us with a quick dose of dopamine. A few such apps that one can search for is Freedom and Cold Turkey
Habits are powerful, and the key component of any habit is being regular.
Just like Jerry Seinfeld used a giant annual calendar, crossing a big red X on days he worked, we can use habit-forming apps to keep us regular in our desired routines and not break the chain.
A few choices are Momentum or Habitica.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
