Become More Efficient with Productivity Apps: Part 4

In the past weeks, we learned that productivity it is when your time, energy, and attention converge to create or produce your desired outcome. Remember, there is no one-size-fits-all way to be productive and everyone’s productivity goals will vary.

When used correctly and frequently, the right app will help you accomplish tasks and goals more productively. But keep in mind, an app alone isn’t going to make you more productive; it’s how you use the app.

This week, is all about To-Do Lists Apps! (My personal favorite kind of apps!)

There are so many things to remember every single day, that it can be hard to keep track of what you need to do and when it needs to get done. From grocery lists, to appointments, to various errands run, there’s a lot to keep organized. Luckily, there are many apps to keep everything you need to do in one place.

  • ToDoist
    Todoist gives you the confidence that everything’s organized and accounted for, so you can make progress on the things that are important to you. Get a clear overview of everything on your plate and never lose track of an important task. Remember deadlines and build habits by setting due dates and recurring due dates like every Monday. Map out projects and goals with step-by-step project sections and subtasks
  • Wunderlist
    Wunderlist is the easiest way to get stuff done. Organize and share your to-do, work, grocery, movies and household lists. No matter what you’re planning, how big or small the task may be, Wunderlist makes it super easy to get stuff done. Set Due Dates and Reminders and Assign to-dos.
  • Remember the Milk
    The smart to-do app for busy people. Get reminded by email, text, IM, Twitter, and mobile apps. Subtasks break your tasks down into smaller, more manageable pieces. You can create any number of subtasks for a task, and those subtasks can have their own subtasks, too. Share your lists and give tasks to others to get things done faster.

Apps listed are available on a variety of platforms. Some are free to use and some come with an initial cost or have added features at an additional charge.
