What New Apps Increase Productivity?

Updated on July 29, 2015

The App Store is Home to Almost 1 Million Apps with more on the Way!

Mobile apps have many practical applications in the marketplace. Not only are they great tools to allow you to access information wherever you are – they can also be put to use for financial benefit. If you're wondering precisely how a downloadable application can enhance your productivity, you have come to the right place. With so many great apps out there, it is worth your while exploring the most highly-rated apps.

A conference was recently hosted by the Chief Executive Officer of Apple Inc, Tim Cook. The Worldwide Developers Conference was a glittering affair where it was revealed that the App Store currently showcases a whopping 900,000 apps, with plenty more in the wings. It should be pointed out that this does not include the vast number of apps available at the Google Play Store. Regardless, apps have changed the way that we interact with our environment.

There is an app for every imaginable purpose, including shopping, dining, vacations, health, fitness, and of course business. The apps listed in this expose are designed to make your life more productive, and that means work and leisure time productivity. If there is an easier way to do things – a more efficient and exciting way – then why not try something different and enjoy the benefits. If you're a self-starter who likes to think outside the box, you will find plenty of value in the following apps.

Schedule Your Business Tweets with Buffer

Social media networking is an important component of business activity nowadays. In fact, any business with a strong online presence is likely engaged in the highly immersive and interactive world of social media. Building brand awareness is an integral part of the overall process and it makes sense to structure your social media activity in such a way that you get an even spread of posts throughout the day. One way to enhance your social media tweets is an app known as Buffer.

And since you also get to enjoy a complete set of analytics, there is plenty of added benefit to using this app. This is a fantastic application that allows you to schedule precisely when you want your tweets to get posted to your company's social profile, or even your personal profile. That way you don't need to worry about posting consistently throughout the day and interrupting your work schedule to post updates to your Twitter account. The good news is that this application is now available for multiple social media profiles including LinkedIn and Facebook – acting in the same capacity as other social media management programs such as Hootsuite.

Manage Your Workflow

Nothing is more important in the workplace than time management. That's why it's imperative to use the most effective time-management tools you can get your hands on. One such mobile app that you can use is Workflow. This app allows you to customize your smartphone, making it easy to avoid tasks and activities that are typically wasteful. Workflow organizes your smartphone in such a way that quick-click functionality, easy accessibility, and user-friendliness abound. For example, you can use this app to program any button on your phone to perform a very specific and/or detailed set of functions. And all you would need to do is click a single button. For example you could set an alert on your calendar about an upcoming IPO and then have that synchronized to connect you with your trading platform to initiate a call/put option.

Trading with the Banc De Binary App

If you have a penchant for trading on the global markets, there is an app from one of the world's leading binary options brokers – Banc De Binary. With this app you can trade currencies, commodities, indices and stocks at your convenience from the comforts of anywhere you go. This mobile trading app is free to download and install, and it grants you access to your Banc De Binary trading account. You can access real-time trades on the financial markets with easy-to-use technology. The app will increase your productivity by allowing you to trade on the go, without having to be near a PC or desktop.

The trading environment has been exclusively designed for your mobile smartphone, and it allows for quick and easy deposits too. Traders can enjoy immediate execution and unfettered access to live charts and prices for indices, stocks, commodities and currencies. Hundreds of tradable assets are available, with many more being added all the time. Banc De Binary trading app is available to traders at the App Store (for iPhones and iPads) and the Google Play Store for Android devices. More good news is that the company is fully licensed and regulated to offer financial services to traders, owing to CySEC regulation (Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission).

Simplify Note-Taking with MS OneNote

Note-taking is an important component of business meetings, conferences and academia. But it is also important for personal purposes. This is the latest addition to the App Store from Microsoft, and its popularity is not without precedent since Evernote has also been with us for quite some time. Essentially they both offer you the same functionality – note taking that can be stored in the cloud. And since full multimedia compatibility is possible, you can take notes with lists, pictures, video and the like. You can use your iPhone or iPad to create apps for Microsoft OneNote. If you're using a BlackBerry, Mac, Android-powered device or Windows Phone there are also apps available for you by using the EverNote app.

When You Can’t Take Calls then LISTEN Works for You

When you're busy working, it's difficult to interrupt your day with a constant barrage of phone calls. Fortunately there is something a little better than voicemail in the form of the LISTEN app. This innovative technology was designed to enhance your productivity by responding to your telephone calls on your behalf. Developed by Real-Networks, this high-quality app utilises enhanced technology to react to calls that you have received. Among others, it features automatic SMS reply services which can respond to instant messages and incoming calls alike. Additionally, this app allows you to tailor your voice and text responses to clients or contacts. Other features include Location Detection, Calendar Integration and Geographic Location functionality. There is a feature called Drive Mode which alerts caller is that you are in your vehicle.

The Benefits of High Productivity Apps

While this is certainly not an exhaustive list of available Android and Apple apps, each of these apps offers you cost savings, time savings and greater efficiency when it comes to managing your workflow. These apps will certainly assist you in increasing your productivity level such that you spend less time planning how to make money and more time actually making it. Plus you get enjoy the added benefits of increased leisure time which is absolutely imperative to your overall well-being.
