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.
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.
- Back in October of this last year, so almost a year ago, I started my company oak technology solutions and I wanted something to help me become a better graphic designer. I searched and searched, read many articles not finding much help with this goal. But one that stood out from one article I read (I forget where it was posted, maybe wired, but it mentioned Canva. It was a powerful tool that helped me grasp some design concepts I was trying to conquer on photoshop and Adobe Comp for iPad. I love the app still even though I hardly ever use it. Occasionally to throw something together quickly I'll open it, but now I'm pretty confident in my design capability. It did also He me become a more confident mockup artist.
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.
