3 awesome productivity tools that have changed my life!

1

Here I m going to introduce to you 3 fantastic productivity tools that I adore. I am not exactly sure how popular these already are in India, but they have had great impact on users across the globe. To be honest, these tools have been micro-life-changers for me. I am sure they can be as valuable to you as well!

If you have not used any of these productivity tools, you should atleast give them a try!

3 awesome productivity tools that have changed my life!

Dropbox

 

Drop Box

Dropbox is an insanely-simple-to-use cloud based file sharing application.

It is available for Desktop platforms like Windows, Mac, Linux and popular Mobile platforms like iOS and Android as well. It seamlessly integrates into the operating system’s file-system and can be treated like just another folder sitting in your system. The fact that it is available for the mobile platform makes it even sweeter.

I upload a document to Dropbox on my desktop and minutes later see the document on my mobile device. Imagine being able to carry around 2GB worth of useful data that you can use anywhere / anytime.

I personally use Dropbox to store handy scanned documents like my passport, drivers license, PAN card etc. and few E-books and documents I might want access to on the go.

Evernote

 

Evernote

 

The next productivity gem I want to introduce to you is Evernote.

Like Dropbox, Evernote is available for most popular desktop and mobile platforms. It is a cloud-based utility that allows you to capture stuff in the form of text, snapshots, pictures and voice and access them across multiple devices.

The other cool thing being a Firefox add-on (it has Chrome extension as well) that enables you to save clips from web pages to Evernote.

Evernote has been nothing short of a trust-worthy digital companion to me. I store purchase confirmations that I get on web pages, quick little ideas that strike me, important passwords (Yes. Evernote encrypts them with a master key), scans of critical paperwork so on and so forth.

Evernote rocks!

Read it later

 

Read it Later

 

The last one is something I started to use pretty recently. Read it later is a valuable tool that enables optimized viewing / reading of content offline.

It is available as a bookmarklet for most popular browsers. This allows you to save an article or a web page for offline reading.

The awesome part is the content is stripped off any distracting banner ads, other junk and the main story emboldened. Read it later is also available for popular mobile platforms. This is especially useful for online bloggers & researchers who read tons of articles a day and sometimes want to save many things for leisure reading !

I m sure these tools would benefit small-scale enterprises and businesses as well.

Folks – go ahead and try these and let me know what you think!
