Shared Tasks, To-do List & Reminders on iPhone, Android, & Web | Astrid

When I switched from an iPhone to an Android phone I needed to find a good task manager that would work on an android phone. I really like this app and when I use it in conjunction with the Chrome web browser I am able to turn anything on the web or my email into a task.

Android's best to-do list now available on iPhone, iPad, the Chrome Store and the web. Unique reminders, clean design, and ability to add tasks by email make it perfect forpersonal use, sharing lists and team project management.

Pandora Internet Radio - Listen to Free Music You'll Love

This is my new secret weapon for focusing when I work. I turn on the Baroque station and I can get a lot done in no time.

Pandora is free, personalized radio that plays music you'll love. Discover new music and enjoy old favorites. Start with your favorite artist, song or composer and Pandora will create a custom station that plays similar tracks.

Pocket (Formerly Read It Later)

I use this to save articles that I really want to read, but don't have the time at the moment to read it. I also use it to save articles that I like so I can go back for reference. I then am able to send to Evernote for further access when I need it.

When you find something you want to view later, put it in Pocket.

Buffer - A Smarter Way to Share on Social Media

Buffer makes it super easy to share any page you're reading. Keep your Buffer topped up and we automagically share them for you through the day.

Instapaper: Save interesting web pages for reading later

Save long web pages to read later, when you have time, on your computer, iPhone, iPad, or Kindle.

Feedly. A fast and stylish way to read and share the content of your favorite sites.

Now that it is official that Google is getting rid of Google reader I scrambled to find a new news reader that I could transition into smoothly. So far this app has not disappointed. The interface is great and it is very customizable.

Introducing the New Feedly. Browsing, reading and sharing your favorite sites has never been this easy, fast and rewarding. Feed your mind anytime, anywhere!


I just love this app. I have been using it since I got my first iPhone and continue to use it on my iPad. The fact that I can see my Google calendars and keep track and move appointments with no hassle makes it priceless. It is so much better than the calendar app that ships with an iPhone or iPad.

"Calendars by Readdle supports everything you can find in Google Calendars"


I just love Documents. I can download and read anything in this app. I also can unzip files and upload to dropbox or any other service. It also lets me hook up with my email accounts so that I can download attachments and read them with ease.

Documents features fast and reliable PDF viewing experience. It allows you to highlight, strike-out and underline text within a PDF document. A blazingly fast search will help you to find the bits you need.

This app is great if you have a FreshBooks account. It is the next best thing to being on the website in your browser. I can enter in payments or invoice and track time with ease.

Apps for your iOS devices. I use this app all the time to take meeting notes.




30/30 - You have never experienced a timer app quite like this! Simple. Attractive. Useful. Available now in the App Store! For iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch).

Habit Streak

I found this gem when I got my android phone. I really like how I can just add habits that I am trying to establish and be reminded daily and then see my progress to developing good habits. A real must have if you want to stick to something. Which consistency helps you to be more productive.

ToDo Log is a to do list and not to do list in one. You assign points (either negative or positive) to tasks; then work to get the highest score over time by both doing things you want to do and avoiding those you shouldn't do.
