5 apps to help you work better

We can organize and order food, clothes, hotels, taxis, aggregate our news, find fitness programs, music and a myriad of other regular activities via apps on our mobile device. But what is out there to help you be the best you can between 9am-5pm? REDnews has had a look and came up with these 5 apps that might help keep you on top of your game.

Evernote 

Allows you to write and edit notes, to-do lists, tasks, manage your brainstorm moments, snap and store photos of that complicated diagram on the whiteboard, scan business cards and record voice reminders. All the content is searchable and the real beauty of it is you have access to it across multiple devices and share notes across Facebook and Twitter.
Price: Free
Available: iOS, Android, Blackberry

Trello 

This is the ‘organise anything’ app that can be used for personal day to day life, work, university and anything you can think of really. Think of it like creating digital postie notes that you use to make quick notes to yourself and then date, categorise and store them quickly and easily. What’s clever is being able to use it for project type work by setting up a team account. The need for emails is reduced, when someone’s posted and updated something you’re instantly notified while tasks can be assigned and opinions sought and given all in the one space.
Price: Free
Available: iOS and Android

Mailtracker 

Waiting on that reply or not sure whether your email has got through, well, Mailtracker might be for you. This syncs with your iPhone mailbox and allows you to see when the person you’ve emailed has read it, how long it was read for, from where and on what device. It currently supports Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook.com/Hotmail accounts and mail providers based on IMAP/SMPT.
Price: Free
Available: iOS

Carousel 

Dropbox has recently released this app which can organize videos and photos into galleries which you can flick through quickly and easily. This can be adapted to use for work in pulling together images and videos for presentations. You can also share and send images in private conversations with everything backed up to your Dropbox account.
Price: Free
Available: iOS and Android

Pushbullet 

This allows you to send files, links, photos, notes and more from your desktop to your mobile and reverse. Files you send with Pushbullet are automatically downloaded and waiting for you and links that are sent take you directly to the site. No more looking time and again for that link on your phone. It’s aggregated a number of features that are available individually on different platforms and presented them in a very easy to use way.
Price: Free
Available: iOS, Android, Windows Desktop, on Chrome and Firefox browsers
