Where did all the time go?
At the end of the day, if you are asking this to yourself. Then, you are struggling to manage your time.
Even I was struggling to manage time. I asked myself, what did I do all the day? Because I couldn’t make a list of tasks I completed at the end of the day.
The list went like,
- Used facebook
- Youtube, Netflix,…
- Started a new blog post.
Completed almost 10 hours like this. A very unproductive day. It wasn’t different on the other days until I found a few apps to help me manage my time.
A minor change in the organization of tasks can help you manage your time and complete all the tasks efficiently without throwing yourself into an unhealthy lifestyle.
And there are many tasks that can be automated using different apps. You can save a lot of time using those apps like I did.
Here, we will show you the best apps for perfectly managing your time for different tasks and completing it based on priority.
1. Slack: Communicate with your team
Slack is the tool that we use to ensure proper communication within our team. As of now, we work remotely and a proper communication is what we need the most. And Slack is the perfect tool for us.
It’s actually different from communication via a social media group. You can store data, assign works to your co-workers, etc. If you are working on a project, then Slack is the best choice for better time management and productivity.
Communication between the team is something that takes a lot of time. If you have a better mode of communication, then you can save a lot of time. Also, in Slack, you can talk with each member on private chats and assign to-dos to everyone. And that’s how it helps you attain the productivity.
2. TickTick: To Do List with Reminder, Day Planner
TickTick is the app that I use to organize my daily tasks. It reminds me of my tasks and helps to boost the productivity.
I am using it for a month now and I think it is a good app with a user-friendly interface. You can easily connect it to all your devices. It is available for almost all the platforms. You can sign up for free plan or premium for more features.
TickTick To-do list app is available for almost all the platforms including Android, Windows, and iOS. It works on computers also.
Here’s the video review I have found on YouTube,
3. Buffer: Social media Management platform (Free/Paid)
Did I tell you something about automating some tasks to save time for other tasks?
This is exactly what I did. Using Buffer for automating my social media updates helped me save a lot of time for other tasks.
I can schedule posts on Buffer to post on different time. So, the posts will be published on social media, even if I am working on other tasks. And I can post to all my social media accounts in one-click.
Does that save a lot of time?
Buffer app is available for Android, iOS, and Chrome (extension).
The free plan has some limitations and you can buy the premium if you want more features.
IFTTT is used to create applets that perform an action for an event. If you want to tweet whenever you post an update on your blog. Then, you can use IFTTT to automate tweeting.
You can automate many other things. I have been using IFTTT for a blog and a twitter account.
5. Push Bullet
Use your phone without touching it. Using Pushbullet you can sync your phone with your computer. You can send messages, use WhatsApp, etc.
But will it boost your productivity? Not sure, because it may leave you chatting on WhatsApp or some other apps.
It will help you boost your productivity as you need not switch between devices if you need anything from your phone.
Pushbullet works with different platforms.
