7 Productivity Apps You Need To Reach Success This Summer

Ahhh, summer. When we wish there were more hours in the day to check off our to-do lists. Well, there’s good news: You now have every productivity app you’ll ever need — all on your device(s).

1. Any.Do

Urges you to view your to-do list in the morning by making you decide which task takes priority, and which to delegate or put off. Another neat feature are the lists incorporated of who you will have to connect with to complete specific tasks. Unfortunately, this is iPhone only.

2. Trello

Say hello to Trello, your new roadmapping friend in crime. Trello creates cards that organize your thoughts into “Ideas” “To-Do” “Doing” and “Done”. Here at SpaceChimp, we use this handy tool for implementing tasks on a more visible hands-on scale, rather than a white board. Because let’s face it, whiteboard never get anything done for you.

3. Pocket

It’s a service formerly known as Read it Later for creating and saving a reading list that can be accessed online or offline. What I love, is that if I begin to get distracted by going deeper and deeper into the web, I can stop, click the “pocket” on my web browser and save the page (and categorize) to go back and view or read later. This is great for saving TedTalks, articles written by colleagues, anything that might distract you from the task at hand.

4. Neverlate

Scared of traffic? No worries, NeverLate will alert you based on the traffic situation telling you when to leave to be on time. This app is good for conducting you when to leave your house, the office or any other place in order to get to your destination on time.  You can always see the current traffic situation, including comparative traffic and what the drive time is right now on your regular routes. Pretty cool.

5. Slack

We know everyone’s obsession with Skype and Gchat, but SpaceChimp LOVES #Slack! Paired with a beautiful mobile UI, Slack has everything you need to communicate with your compadres. It does everything Skype does, but with fun little suprises, including Slackbot, a virtual robot that will talk back to you when you’re feeling blue.

6. Addappt

This automatic, and convenient, feature is great for the fast-paced business world, allowing you to focus on more important business tasks. Addappt continuously updates your iOS address book as well as updating your contacts when personal information changes. While it seems like another one of those apps that aim to replace a basic function already built into the iPhone (why bother if I already have an address book?), it automatically updates contact information among its users. Totally convenient.

7. Evernote

And lastly, Evernote. I know you’ve heard of this one before, but it draws me in with the cool video demos that promise to give me the ability to sync all my notes, lists and reminders across any platform to one place. And then reminding my phone, computer or tablet when it’s time to do something. It looks fantastic, claiming it will help with research, keep sketches on file, plan your next vacation, but it also looks like it would take some time to learn and get used to.
