Smart-phones are the norm these days, and android more so, especially in India with androids now available at a measly 3000 rupees. That being said, if you own one of these smart-phones, you should tap into the potential it gives you. The android market has lots of apps that you can use to make your work simpler and more fun!
Here are five apps that can increase your productivity:
I find myself in this situation often, someone is saying something important, and I have nowhere to write that down. But with evernote, that problem is no more. Evernote lets your take notes, sync files across your devices, save webpages, record voice-reminders, capture photos and inspiration, and share your ideas with friends and colleagues. It even lets you search for text in images. The best part is, it's free, cross-platform, and all your notes are automatically synced and safe in the cloud!
Formerly Google Docs, It's now Google's one-stop shop for documents, images, files and everything else. If you're a gmail-er, even better. You can view and edit documents in a touch. Share and collaborate with colleagues, seamlessly manage all your documents in one place. With features like offline views, easy PDFs, picture to document, this is one killer app. The best part? It's free!
This is the most elegant, beautiful and stunning to-do list app in the market. It makes doing things fun and you'll look forward to completing your task so you can scratch out the done task. Yes, that's a feature. You can just speak to the app and tell Any.DO about the task, and when you're done, scratch it. Feels good completing that task! You can also share tasks, and sync your tasks with google. Even if you aren't a to-do list person, you are missing out a great deal if you haven't tried this yet! It's free as well!
Dropbox, if you haven't heard of it yet, is a service that gives you space on the cloud to store your files. What's so special about that? Only, it has an app for every device you could possibly think of, and all of your files are synced in all of those devices. So no matter where you go, you have your files with you. Sharing your files takes about a few touches on your smart-phone, and all of this is free as well, except you get only 2GB to start off with.
