And as</p><p>any newbies, I did it all wrong. I didnt have an organized workflow. Everything got messy and stressful.</p><p>Tons of unfinished tasks made me feel overwhelmed.</p><p>Thankfully, when I got my feet wet with my new job at Designveloper</p><p>(https://www.designveloper.com/), I found a few amazing tools that came to my rescue, kept me on</p><p>track and organized throughout the day. It was the time I put an end to my disorganized way of</p><p>working.</p><p>So, in today post, Im glad to share with you my favorite apps that help me get in the zone and tear</p><p>through my to-do list. Check it out cause who knows, it might also help you run a business a little less</p><p>of a chore and a lot more fun. In no particular order, we have:</p><p>TODOIST (https://todoist.com/)</p><p>W E B &amp; M O B I L E D E V E L O P M E N T( H T T P S : / / B L O G . D E S I G N V E L O P E R .

No one manages your</p><p>work days except yourself. Because of such freedom, I used to work unmethodically. I just got my</p><p>hands dirty with the tasks that seemed interesting and not with the ones that were a priority. And as</p><p>the result, by the end of the day, things that had should be done was unexecuted. Then, I got boring</p><p>and decided to jump into another task that looked more fun than the previous one did at that moment.</p><p>See, even in the way I told, it was completely a mess.</p></li><li><p>2/10/2017 Free Productivity Apps For Business Owners In 2017</p><p>https://blog.designveloper.com/2017/01/04/free-productivity-apps/ 3/7</p><p>Now, I have the Todoist app on my phone and also keep the web version pinned to my browser both at</p><p>home and at work (Im madly in love with this app) so its always readily accessible.</p><p>The thing I like the most about Todoist is that I can schedule my tasks for each day and easily keep</p><p>things organized by project as well. No more belated tasks since with Todoist, I conveniently check off</p><p>whether the tasks complete or not, then Ill work on them.</p><p>Check out: Amazing Websites With Awesome Free Stock Photos</p><p>(https://blog.designveloper.com/2016/12/27/free-stock-photo-websites/)</p><p>TRELLO (https://trel lo.com/)</p><p>There is no doubt that Trello is my working life. No other tools can beat this amazing project</p><p>management tool.</p><p>You can do a lot of things with Trello such as: create boards for your projects, create lists to represent</p><p>the state of progress in each of your boards (for example I have 3 lists To do, Doing and Done), add a</p><p>due date to remind you of deadlines, label your cards by using color, etc. And especially, the cards can</p><p>be easily moved between lists.</p><p>Since Trello came to my life, I havent had to keep everything in my brain anymore like I have to do</p><p>this task before 8th January or I need to finish that task by 10th January. Lucky me!</p><p>SLACK (https://slack.com/)</p></li><li><p>2/10/2017 Free Productivity Apps For Business Owners In 2017</p><p>https://blog.designveloper.com/2017/01/04/free-productivity-apps/ 4/7</p><p>You do not keep in touch with your customers by using Facebook Messenger (except your business is</p><p>on Facebook), SMS, or Imessage, do you? Then, you might think email is the most effective way in this</p><p>case. But who know me will know how much I hate emails. To say it right, what I actually hate is when I</p><p>end up with tons of emails in a thread for just quick questions/answers.</p><p>I love using Slack to message with teams and keep things organized in various threads. Its also really</p><p>easy to track all my projects and its FREE!</p><p>DROPBOX (https://www.dropbox.com/)</p><p>Lately, my laptop was suddenly on strike and I havent found out the reason yet (poor me!), but</p><p>fortunately, Dropbox keep backups of all my files. It becomes my favorite cloud storage tool right</p><p>know. I dont have to worry about my files taking up space on my computers anymore.</p></li><li><p>2/10/2017 Free Productivity Apps For Business Owners In 2017</p><p>https://blog.designveloper.com/2017/01/04/free-productivity-apps/ 5/7</p><p>I also have it installed on my desktop, so it feels like Im using a normal documents folder all day, and it</p><p>syncs seamlessly with the app on my phone, so I can access my files wherever I am. And its super</p><p>easy to share files with clients and collaborators using Dropbox. What more can I ask for?</p><p>GOOGLE CALENDAR</p><p>(https:// i tunes.apple.com/us/app/google-</p><p>calendar/ id909319292?</p><p>mt=8&amp;sf=gpyeyyg)</p><p>If you hate the iPhone calendar app which only actually shows what day it is, I recommend you to try</p><p>Google Calendar. Its easier to schedule the agenda for all day such as: meetings, conference calls, off-</p><p>days, etc.</p><p>Since I used it, I, who has the memory of a goldfish, havent missed or forgot anything. This help me to</p><p>stay on top of everything at work. How awesome!</p><p>Here are The Most Useful Tools For Web Designers</p><p>(https://blog.designveloper.com/2016/11/23/tools-for-web-designers/)</p><p>EVERNOTE (https://evernote.com/)</p></li><li><p>2/10/2017 Free Productivity Apps For Business Owners In 2017</p><p>https://blog.designveloper.com/2017/01/04/free-productivity-apps/ 6/7</p><p>How can I not mention this one?</p><p>I use Evernote to keep track of everything from jotting down ideas for my blog to planning big projects.</p><p>I love that its super convenient to save links, images or articles and it also allows me to collaborate</p><p>with other people.</p><p>Have I missed anything out?</p><p>Its my secret weapons.
