These Windows-compatible productivity apps that will help you get things done effectively.
If you’re feeling increasingly digitally distracted, you aren’t alone. Students check their smartphones in class for non-school purposes about a dozen times a day, according to one 2016 survey. And a 2014 survey from Salary.com found that 89% of respondents admitted to wasting time at work.
But our computers, smartphones, and tablets aren’t just distraction machines: when used effectively, they can also help us tackle our daily lives more efficiently or collaboratively. A variety of apps available for the Windows OS, both desktop and mobile, provide powerful productivity features including cloud-based document sharing, collaborative project planning, and online time tracking. And many of these apps are designed to work together, allowing you personalize a suite of products that help you complete your tasks, on time, in the way that works best for you and your team.
These 15 applications address all stages of productivity, from cutting out online distractions and tracking your time to employee collaboration and high-level project planning.
