Our lives have become deeply complex and fast moving. It often is hard to stay organized and productive throughout the day. With most of our communication taking place digitally via our smartphones, tablets and computers it is plausible to further manage our to-do lists, thoughts and ideas with the help of technology. Let us introduce 6 meaningful web-based productivity applications to you.
Improve your daily efficiency with these web-based productivity tools:
Do you know the frustration of scrolling down your Facebook news feed to find this one specific article you saw before – and now you can’t find it anymore? We sure do, this is why we think Pocket is a great productivity application. With Pocket you can save articles to your personal list of ‘read it later’ items. You can save articles, videos and photos and access those whenever it fits you best. You don’t even need an internet connection, as your saved items are also available offline on the Pocket App.
SoundSnip is an application that allows you to capture only the most important parts of a meeting, presentations or conversations. Whenever something important happens, tap once and SoundSnip captures the last minute of audio on your phone or smartwatch. It enables you to keep the most valuable key points - containing only the information that truly matters. Wasting time reviewing audio tapes or writing protocols are a thing of the past. We think, SoundSnip is an innovative application for business and leisure environments.
All of us are working with some kind of lists and notes to remember the groceries we need to buy or the tasks for the next day at the office.

Evernote lets you remember everything and gives you access to your notes with clear categorization and search options within your own lists.
