Spotify

Any song. One tap away.

Kate42Community @ Product Hunt · Written
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.

Slack

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

Jakub Rogalski18Community Manager at Brand24 · Written
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 agree, the best thing with Twitter is almost you see what you want to see. Rather Facebook gives x likes y's post or z's picture. That is not what i want to see in the morning.

Can 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.

Medium has replaced Wikipedia as the unintended reading-based time suck for me. I'll start reading one and end up on there for a couple of hours without realising.

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.

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.

1Password 6

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.

Excellent podcast app that can sync to a web browser client for additional fee. One weakness is that it does not have support for password-protected podcasts.

The best way to listen to Audiobooks on your iPhone

Audio books

Audio Books - I never have time to read, but I can always find time to listen.
CommentsShare
Graham Campbell3🚀 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.
