    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.

    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.

      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.

      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

      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.

  14. 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.

      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.

      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.

      Organize your life with pleasure. Add due date to tasks, tasks inside projects, subprojects and subtasks. Call your friends to join your project and assign tasks for them. Comment and add images on tasks. Have your tasks everywhere with nice apps. Love it.

      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.

    The best way to listen to Audiobooks on your iPhone

    Graham Campbell
    Graham Campbell4🚀 new ventures, faster · Written
    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.
