    Slack

    Be less busy. Real-time messaging, archiving & search.

    Omer Molad4Co-founder and CEO @ Vervoe · Written
    Slack has become my most frequently used app recently. We have a remote team so we use Slack to communicate. I can be anywhere and still talk to everyone. Sometimes, when I need a break, I take my son to the park but I can still respond to messages as if I was at my desk.

    Great platform for Professional Communication. It's quite addictive and excellent to handle.I just wish the creators soon add the widgets on mobile platforms such as this iOS and Android for a great flow of work and can get notified on the go.

    Slack works great especially if you are working remote. You can organize your channels to a different team/departments, task/focus and random silliness. Get notified and keep everything under a thread to easily read past messages or do a Search!

      As a remote designer, this is a must have. I'm always contactable and available. Super easy way to also have quick calls and communicate with other team members on different teams.

      I'm a part of a ton of Slack communities but I'm active in only a handful.

      Slack works to its fullest only when it is implemented in a team and everyone's supposed to use it for communication. Slack could/should improve on making the communities on it better by adding relevant features.

    Inbox by Google

    Next generation inbox

    Adrien JOLYWeb developer + JS teacher. · Written
    I have a shortcut to quickly add reminders to my Inbox. A real time-saver and mind-clearer! :-)
    CommentsShare
    • I pretty much like all things Google, but Inbox just isn't for me. I much prefer good old fashioned Gmail on my iPhone. The way Inbox sorts my emails doesn't always make sense to me, and I suppose I'd rather sort it myself. There are definitely better email apps out there. I know because I've tried a bunch of them.

    • I like & hate inbox for the same features.

      It´s the first time my Mailbox feels sorted and clean. That said Inbox dicards eamils as unimportant, doesn't show notifications for all emails and shows how much it knows about my friends, travel agrangements and so on.

      I do think a manual hosted version would be really great but I doubt we will see something soon.

      In the end its a Google Product which means no updates and in 2 years we get the next version of it. It lacks a lot of things you can't do with it. For instance multiple Accounts, S/MIME encryption and ways to highlight a lot more.

    Pocket Casts

    Powerful podcast manager for iOS & Android. New v.5 release.

    Not everyone listens to podcasts, but as someone who regularly switches between Android (current) and iOS Pocket Casts provides an awesome, reliable experience that I can access anywhere (including the web for a one time fee).

    Marc HeatleyDirector, Proper Design · Written
    I've used Pocket Casts on Android as my podcatcher of choice since it first launched. It does everything I need it to (automated chronological playlist, auto delete listened-to podcasts, skip x time at the start of a particular podcast (sorry Tim Feriss)) and a few more things besides (playback speed per podcast etc...). The devs have always been responsive and pleasant to deal with which helps a lot too.

    • Nathan BrownWeb & Mobile Growth Consultant

      I've loved Medium for a long time - in fact I still hear from people (other authors wanting to link/interview me, prospective clients, etc.) every singe month directly from my very first Medium post.

      Medium on mobile is...so-so. Much better than the original app, but the nature of a content network means there's a ton to fit on a small screen's UX.

      My only real issue with the app is the writing interface (which should be Medium's strongest point if the website is any indication). It's reminiscent of the beloved Medium writing interface, but some of the features

      I've used many blog editors out there, and none has proven to be as easy and user friendly as Medium.

      If you're a minimalistic approach lover then you should definitely check Wunderlist. It's doesn't eat much resources if you keep it open all the time. Lists of tasks, starring tasks is the best simple and productive way of tasks' prioritization. It also has a great feature of adding a task or searching for a task without going to the main window. Just use a keyboard shortcut for this.

    • Alex PasternakLead Software Developer, Kronos

      I've tried this app many times, but really fail to see what people see in it. It fails my basic use cases of even a grocery list, where I need to complete an item, have it hidden, then uncomplete it when it's needed again, easily.

      But then again, Todoist also fails this. Perhaps these are great for one-time use and throw away items. I use AnyList, and would otherwise use Paperless on iOS (or now Ikiru) before either of those.

      Adding a social layer to listening and discovering podcasts is a nice idea, but Breaker doesn’t appear to offer any easy way to unlink social platforms or erase your profile/data of you change your mind. Given the incredibly vague privacy policy, it’s asking for a big leap of faith.

    • I am using this app in every commutes. It has some handy features as the 'jump silences' in podcast that can make you win up to 5 min per podcast
