February 6, 2015

Wouldn't it be great if there was an easy way to get more organised?

We all have our own ways to keep on top of things but sometimes a to-do list just isn't enough. At work or at home, running your own business or running your family, we could all do with some simple ways to improve our productivity and get more done! Here at NB, we are no different and we are always looking for ways to improve workflow and be more efficient. So we've been on the hunt for some handy apps to make sure we get the most out of our time.

Multitasking Productivity App - iFTTT

This is the definition of multitasking for your technology devices. It stands for 'If This Then That'. Those of us in the technology worlds of programming or electronics will be familiar with these logic processes but for anyone they can be simple to understand and very flexible to use. You can set up a chain of actions or 'recipes' so that if a certain thing happens, it triggers other actions to take place. For example, store a spreadsheet of all your tweets or download all the Facebook photos you are tagged in to your Dropbox. If you are sick of performing repetitive manual tasks on your computer or mobile device, this is the app for you.

Intelligent Productivity App - Timeful

Timeful is a free iPhone To-Do app that uses machine learning to help you find time to do the things you want to do without overriding the things you need to do. It learns from your regular schedules and when you are likely to get certain things done such as exercising in the morning, sending emails at lunchtime or phoning your mum back in the evening.

Multi-Purpose Productivity App - Awesome Note (+ToDo)

One of the most appealing visual apps for productivity that we've found is Awesome Note (+ToDo). As the name suggests, this is a note taking and To Do app rolled into one and is full of customisable features including selecting icons and colours for each section of the app. If you have a lots of areas to keep organised then this app might be just what you need. Just try not to get distracted by the lovely graphics!

Hope this helps. We'll let you get back to your work!
