Use your mobile device as a tool for productivity rather than distraction with these useful applications. There are so many apps to choose from when it comes to productivity. These five tried and tested apps are our current favourites, from completing tasks to communicating in a team, we think you will find them useful too!

sunrise app   Sunrise

If you work with your calendar a lot, Sunrise is a nice addition to your phone. It looks great and also syncs seamlessly and instantly with other apps, including google calendar, evernote and facebook which we find super handy! Sunrise also come with Meet, a quick way to schedule one-to-ones on the go. Meet is a keyboard that lets you select available time slots in your calendar and send them to anyone through a simple link with leaving the app. (Sunrise)

productive app   Productive

Productive is a great tool for building positive, life changing habits. It’s a good way to schedule desirable habits into your daily routine and to create chains of habits, or motivating streaks. While we don’t think an app is really the complete solution to lifestyle changes, we still find it a helpful and simple reminder. You can also track your progress over time and see detailed stats, all in this sleekly designed app. (Productive. Not currently available on Android. Rewire is similar).

pocket app   Pocket

With Pocket you can easily save articles, images, videos and more for later viewing. You can view your saved items even when there is no internet connection. We like that the layout is clean and simple, a very satisfying way to view your saved content, be it on your mobile or desktop. (Pocket).

todoist app   Todoist

Todoist does one thing, but it does it well. A beautifully simple app for you to note and tick off all your “To Do” items. Sync and view Todoist easily on your mobile, ipad or desktop. Organise your to do lists with colours, labels filters and more. (Todoist).

Asana is an clever app for organising all your teams tasks and conversations in one place. It is teamwork without email. Connect to your team for free over all your devices, whether you are at the office, at home or on the go. (Asana).
