We've all been there: you're working on a project and need to do some research, but you don't have any idea where to start.

You know what will help? Productivity apps.

They can help you out with everything from reminders and lists to calendars, productivity software, and even games.

But what are the best productivity apps out there? I've rounded up a few of my favorites below!

1. Grammarly

Grammarly is the best productivity app to help you with communicating. Most people think a grammar checker is only for writers. But I mainly use Grammar’s browser extension for daily use. I use it for writing emails in Gmail, responding to comments, or any other site I have to write something.

2. Blinkist

Blinkist creates quality summaries of non-fiction books. Every day I read one book summary, and if I want to learn more, I get the actual book. If not, I just eliminate the book from my reading list.

3. Trello

With Trello you can create ‘boards’ for every project you have. And on every board, you can list all the actions you have to complete for that project.

4. Feedly / Medium

Instead, make a list of 5–10 blogs/authors you love to read. Then, add them to Feedly or follow the bloggers/publications on Medium. Every day, only read your articles through Feedly and Medium.

5. Office 365 / Google Docs

I save about 1 hour per week by having easy access to all my documents (on all my devices) in the cloud. I only focus on working and sharing documents, spreadsheets, and presentations.

6. The Free Calendar App On Your Phone

Ditch the to-do list and use your calendar as your number one productivity tool. Take some time to plan your week. Ask: When will I do what? Then, schedule it in your calendar. I do this exercise every day.


The app automatically keeps track of your time, assigns it to projects, and presents each day’s hours in an easy to digest pie chart. You can then create invoices based on hours, manage a project, or integrate into your calendar.

To sum it up

There are plenty of great productivity apps/tools out there, many of which we've highlighted above. But if you're still looking for a few more apps for helping you get organized, we've got you covered!
