- Again, I'm a long time user of Grammarly. It has worked wonders. Helps me iron out the smallest of errors in my documents and bring out something that is pitch-perfect.I've been using the chrome extension for a month now, and I can confirm it's actually pretty good. I'm not paying for premium (I use Hemingway Editor for advanced grammar checking), but the free features are really useful and well designed. In addition to spelling and minor grammar checks, you can also double click a word to get a definition, which has become one of my favourite features.
When you use grammarly, they put some kind of advert for youtube, so when you watch youtube videos, it will stop and their advert will start. Note, this is not a youtube ad, this is an ad directly from them.
The browser extension is a must have, but I regularly pass my emails through this, or draft them in it just to catch dumb mistakes and make noticeable grammar improvements on the fly
- Managing multiple login information really made my life easier.
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.
Good product that helps you with customer outreach. Emails can be tricky to come by for most companies and it's better than guessing and checking with NAME@COMPANYNAME.COM.
It's a good product for me. If you are looking for contacts on arabian site for example, you can quickly find the necessary e-mail of CEO with this product
This is the first and only app I pay for :D Sometimes it can feel like a chore to do stuff that is good for you and this app takes that away for me. I teaches you gently and pleasantly and Ive been able to stick to it and understand more about how minds work. It helped me stop biting my nails.
Great product to get focus in a world of noise
I am using this app in every commutes. It has some handy features as the 'jump silences' in podcast that can make you win up to 5 min per podcast
- The better version of reminders, with calendar integration, flawless cross-platform cloud syncing and more. I use Things to organise pretty much everything I do, allowing for my concentration to lay on other things, whilst not fearing to forget events, due dates, etc.
I've been a Things user since 2007. Within the last couple of years Things 2.0 started to feel stale, and I found myself exploring other alternatives. Yet I could never end up replacing it.
Thankfully, Things 3.0 comes out of nowhere with a completely redesigned experience that is fast, beautiful and it allows you to do everything with speed — the perfect recipe for a todo app.
This app feels like it belongs on iOS 11 even though it was launched weeks before the iOS 11 beta was announced. It's that good!
You still can't share tasks with others, but the great experience easily out weights that need.
I've used Things since 2010. It's the app I couldn't live without. To use it well, familiarize yourself with David Allen's "Getting Things Done" methodology.
- The most productivity app is Evernote I’m not sure how I lived my life before Evernote. I would always scribble notes on notebooks, post-it notes, and floating pieces of paper. After I finished taking notes I would simply stack the notes in my closet. Eventually, I had a closet full of knowledge that was inaccessible. All I can hope for is that someone in the future would sort through my mess and find a hidden gem. Only after I started using Evernote I was able to build upon my ideas. Evernote acts as a second-brain. You can easily store your ideas in Evernote from anywhere Evernote notes are synced in the cloud. Write your random inspirations while on the bus, then elaborate on your scribbles at your desktop. While Evernote is great for writing ideas down, the source of great knowledge comes from books. I found that Evernote Web Clipper simply did not provide the web research tools I needed. As Evernote Web Clipper saves the entire bulk page instead of just the sentences I need. And only provides basic colored highlighting.
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.
This has quickly become one of my most frequently used apps. It also just feels a lot healthier to read these than Facebook posts or 'same story different day' news articles.

- Instapaper is my preferred alternative to Pocket for reading lists. It's completely free, and there's all these really cool hidden features, like a speed reading mode, and IFTTT integration so I can sync my highlighted text to an Evernote document. It has less features than Pocket, but still does everything I could ever want.
