4 Apps to Improve Your Productivity

Posted on: Tuesday, August 14, 2018

It’s hard to believe it is already the middle of August, but as summer winds down, it’s difficult not to think of the giant to-do list ahead. Whether you’re taking your vacation in August, working or getting ready to head back to school in September, getting an early start on your to-do list may give you an organizational edge.

Take a look at these 4 apps to help enhance your productivity and stay on top of your daily, weekly and monthly tasks.

1. Google Keep

First up is Google Keep, an app available on iOS, Android and Chrome. If you’re someone who prefers an abundance of features and visually appealing productivity apps, this is the one for you.

Google Keep offers a range of ways to organize your ideas, thoughts and tasks, including:

  • Notes
  • Lists
  • Place reminders
  • Collaborators
  • Photos/drawings
  • Voice commands to take notes and add to-do list

2. The Todoist

Rated as number one in last year’s Terabit’s back to school blog post, Todoist allows users to keep track of tasks and projects. It is great for those who simply require a distraction-free design, although that’s not to say Todoist doesn’t have many features. You can use many of the features for free, such as creating, organizing and collaborating on tasks, as well as setting deadlines. However, to go beyond the basics, you must get premium, which is C$39 per year. With premium you receive greater control with the ability to set task reminders, customize templates and personalize task views. Todist is available on just about every device imaginable and is offered as a browser extension. Check it out here.

3. Remember the Milk

Next up is Remember the Milk, an app suited for the busiest of times. This app has been around for quite some time, thus it has seen numerous updates to keep up with consumers needs. Some of it’s main perks include the ability to create subtasks, which contain reminders, priority levels and due dates. From there, the app will create Smart Lists, which are based on the features mentioned. Similar to many of its competitors, Remember the Milk offers an attractive free version, however, users must pay C$39.99 per year for the pro version that incorporates more features.

4. Picniic

Last, but not least is Picniic, an organizational app perfect for families that has received much praise. Picniic allows for families to collaborate in one space (an app) to create to-do lists, shopping lists, as well as share photos and events on calendars. The app is available on desktop & tablet, as well as iOS and Android. Picniic states almost all of the features are available for free. However, with Picniic Premium, users can access that much more. The app is available for free or C$49.99 per month.

Google’s Digital Wellbeing Features Now Available for Beta Testing

Posted on: Tuesday, August 7, 2018

As consumers become increasingly concerned and aware of the drawbacks from digital technologies, tech giants have had to adjust and commit to a greater role in promoting “digital wellness”. Google is one of the many companies that have announced their efforts in creating platforms with greater transparency for consumers.

In May, The Verge reported that Google would be launching wellness features along with the release of Android 9 Pie, which was launched just yesterday. The Digital Wellbeing features are not yet available on the new OS update; however, individuals with Google Pixel devices running on Android 9 Pie are able to sign up for the “Android Digital Wellbeing Data” by clicking here. According to Digital Trends, the wellness update will be widely released sometime in the fall.

Google has made their commitment to Digital Wellbeing known and in turn, the company is offering quite a variety of tools for Android users to better gauge how much time they’re truly spending on their phone. Google has created an analytical dashboard that encourages individuals to reflect upon their phone and technology usage. As Google stated, the dashboard provides Android users with generic information regarding phone usage, including the number of times the phone has been unlocked, the amount of notifications received and a breakdown of time spent on each app.

In addition to the dashboard, other features include personalizing updates, snoozing alerts, Do Not Disturb mode, Smart Reply and App Timers that limit the amount of time spent on each app.

Similar updates have also been integrated into Apple’s iOS 12 update. The updates provide consumers with the opportunity to better understand how they are affected by their phone and then make the changes they deem necessary and applicable to their daily routine.
