What are the best tools for remote workers?

As a remote worker myself, I'm always curious to see what others use to improve the experience of working from home or on the move. This can include furniture, software, hardware, backpacks, etc. Whatever makes being remote easier for you.

    AND CO

    If you're a freelancer working from home or remote, this app is a great resource to help you run your business. You can manage all your expenses, income and invoices in any currency, AND CO automatically converts everything with real-time and historical conversion rate data. It's all built with a smart workflow so you can have some piece of mind while working remote, knowing that your business is taken care of;)

    Multiple currencies/different languages super useful for clients overseas. Or expensing overseas, but getting paid USD

    Atlas Recall

    A searchable photographic memory for your digital life

    This might not be what you exactly meant - but I have multiple computers + an iPhone that I use for work. The reason for this is I have a designated "work" computer and a "home" computer, and occasionally I end up doing work on both of them. Atlas gives me the ability to search my stuff (both computers) using any of my devices, and will give me the files / URLs / for my stuff and take me back faster through a smarter search platform. Whenever I work from home or remotely during any period of time, this is super useful for looking through and across all of the different silos my work is living in.

    Not only is the app fantastic for finding great spots to work (even in towns you wouldn't expect it!), the Slack community is supportive and friendly. Definitely recommend!

    Flock

    Real-time team messenger tool

    The real-time chat features, video calls, screen-sharing help you seamlessly stay in touch with the team onsite. Also, there's an inbuilt task management tool that helps manage tasks within the team. It also allows integrations in a unique sort of way, so all your internal tools once integrated can be accessible within Flock. Essentially, even while you're working remotely, you can have access to all information in one single place. The app is free to use and is available across devices.

    If you're hiring remotely or have remote recruiters or team members that want to get in on the hiring process, Recruitee is a great collaborative hiring tool. It streamlines the hiring process, allows for unlimited users, and has things like a mobile app with notifications, team notes, and a careers site editor.

    I have the 10000mAh charger always in my backpack, because well the iPhone battery problem. 🙄 It's very small and light, and charges the iPhone very fast. I also have the PowerCore+ 20100mAh for charging my Macbook in trips.

    I use it to keep track of how I spend my time and to generate reports for billing. Of course, this is assuming you a charge on a variable/flexible per-hour basis (e.g. freelance work).

    appear.in

    Efficient video meetings with up to 12 people!

    Slack video calls are great-but appear.in has been a daily tool for me since I can communicate with anyone regardless of if they are on slack, Skype, hangouts...etc. Also-screensharing. Did I mention it's free?
