- I can't imagine life without music. Ask anyone (especially @ayrton or @mscccc) and they can testify that I'm almost always dancing (because music makes you move 💁). The BEST app / streaming service / all around music-listening-method I've found is Spotify. SO IN LOVE.
- where else do we get questions like these from, lol
- Most of the apps with the bigger number of upvotes that are mentioned here could actually be listed as the ones I can't live without. If I had to pick one, however, it would be Slack, I guess. It makes it so much easier to stay on top of all the work-related stuff, and since I need to keep track of all the important mentions of our company as well, the integration with https://brand24.com makes it even more valuable for me.Well in the end you can live without any app.. but Slack is definitely a life changer when it comes to running a starting company.
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.
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.
- Almost 90% of the content I consumed everyday is video
- This is the key for contemporary communication with anyone (at least in Chile - LATAM) / for business, personal, relationships, family, friends, studies … everyone, everything.Keeps you connected to your pals when on a deserted island
- My morning routine: groggily wake up, open up my phone, look at Twitter.
- It's usually the last app i use before sleeping and the first app i open after waking up.I get to come back to all those long reads I can't get through during the work dayCan not live without this app, chrome extension and what not. I always come across things I want to read, but don't have the time to read right away. Been a loyal fan of Pocket since when I used to pay for it when it was called Read it Later.
- Because learning is a basic human right. Nobody should be able to speak over your head as long as you do even basic research via Wikipedia. Also, free & open information, and self-guided learning helps us understand and improve our world.
- Morning > Medium + PLAY (Listen to Medium articles with a Chrome Extension). Noon > PH & AskPH. After work > Oculus & Samsung VR for an hour.
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.
- I am always working on things I need to sahre with people and I do not recall how I did it before Google Drive was thereThe best app to make you capable of working remotely, your files are with you all the time, on any deviceI use it every day for my freelance work. And I'm building a product that works on top of Google Drive. It's got room for improvement (API wise), but it's such a great value and absolutely very useful. Plus with other google apps like Docs, Sheets, etc... it's just awesome!
- Because typing, remembering, and coming up w/ new passwords is an inefficient use of your valuable time.One of the best password manager I have used till date! Can't survive without it!
It's definitely a leap to use a password manager. Actually it's a pain in the ass. but it's so worth it.
Passwords aren't going away any time soon so this is the only safe options for the near future. Get onto it.

LastPass means you never have to use the same password on multiple websites again. Use the handy features to share your passwords with other users and sync your work account so that you can easily onboard team members. User for yeasrs.
- Hands down, my life would be very different without 1Password. Having a place where all my passwords, critical information, and a handful of notes can live securely gives me so much peace of mind. The password generator, 1Password Mini, and the Chrome extension, not to mention the TouchID protection of the iOS app, have dramatically improved my digital security measures. I never have to make a silly short password or reuse an old one for fear of forgetting because I trust 1Password to do that heavy lifting for me. The Watchtower feature that warns you of potentially compromised sites is a great tool, and duplicate password detection makes it much easier to beef up your password security without hunting through a list of all your sites, usernames, and passwords. Security and peace of mind are totally worth paying for with 1Password.Spectacular password manager. Use it for all my passwords and it syncs across all my devices
- It's like my second brain, the first one is getting grey already... kidding, but this way I can share my idea's, plans, links, software, info with many of my friends
Brilliant for managing all your project backlogs in a Kanban fashion. Including a list for the DIY tasks around the house.
As a Marketer I use this daily to manage workflow, sort ideas around future content and prioritize my activities. My team collaborate and report using handy integrations with Google and we use it as a Customer service and Sales script repository to store links to docs and how-to videos.
If you aren't an organized person Trello allows for easy to see visuals that help keep projects on track. The team at Curexe has specifically used it to organize our bugs, new features, staging and production stages of our development.
- My life is on Evernote. My life depends on Evernote. Evernote is life. All hail Evernote !Because there are always some things to note. Meeting notes, todo's, shopping list, another interesting article on the web. Evernote works on all devices and provides powerful organising features like multiple notebooks, tagging and advanced search. Also while reading note you get recommendations for similar notes.
Absolutely love Evernote. Use it for work and personal use and that is easy with the ability to make notebooks. Tags are super helpful as is annotating a document or editing a picture with Skitch. Makes my life easier and more organized!
Evernote is a platform that allows you to organize, store, share and then search your information. Evernote impacts a business's productivity by streamlining the collection and distribution of critical information by enhancing its retrieval. Evernote's gives your business enhanced control of the information you own or information already collected by your employees. It's your business. It's your information.
- Has everything I need to do. Tells me everything other than when to breathe. With integration to Newton and Alexa, it is even more of a vital tool.Is the ultimate todo tool that totally change how i work, plan and time.
We were looking for a tool to replace Asana, and after initially testing Todoist, became certain it could be the tool for us. But sharing projects is a PITA. There's no easy way to let your team have access to all newly created projects. Also, the projects structure isn't shared, so sharing a new subproject causes havoc in the teammate's projects structure, and the teammate needs to manually configure the projects structure according to it's intended layout.
The Todoist app is ruthlessly efficient in helping me capture my tasks no matter when or where I am. Bring collaborators into a project, or a task is a snap. When I'm creating a recurring task, and hopefully a positive habit, or when I am reflecting on my productivity, Todoist works.
- Have used Alfred since day one, so much more than an app launcher. The first thing I install on a new machine.Alfred is so deeply tied to my work habits — indispensable app.
- As long as the desert island has internet connectivity... it's the best podcast management and player on Android. A close second would be Smart Audiobook PlayerBecause I don't listen to music, I want options when it comes to my podcasts playback, and it should feel and look good!
- I use Audible because I've always been a relatively slow reader of text but a keen listener & auditory learner. Audible offers probably the largest online library of audio books, including many of the world's best non-fiction (and fictional) books of all time that help you become smarter, more well-versed, and more effective. Plus (and this is probably the biggest reason I use Audible aside from their comprehensive inventory,) you can actually dial the speed of Audiobooks down to 0.75x and up to as high as 3.0x to suit your preferred listening pace (and the audio remains pretty much just as discernable in terms of pitch - ie. no Alvin & The Chipmunks effect). This speed adjustment feature allows me to digest books much more quickly than I've ever been able to read them.
