    Default What apps keep you productive?

    Hi all!
    The title explains everything, I think.
    This question is born since I don't know what apps should I use to keep me productive, so I'm curious to know yours.
    Thank you!

    My main productivity apps are Evernote (note taking), Wunderlist (to do), and Dropbox (content storage).

    Being cross platform was the main attraction for me. It allows me to access my stuff on my BlackBerry and Apple devices and on my home and work PCs.

    1Password- Password and information storage.
    Dropbox- Cloud file storage.
    Write- Note taking that syncs immediately with dropbox so I can access it on all my devices. I have it on my iPhone, iPad and my Mac.
    Evernote (occasionally)- Note taking. Not my favorite but I use it on occasion to switch things up a bit, not often though.
    iA Writer- Word processor. You don't have to worry about fonts and obtrusive toolbars, all you do is write. Makes focusing on writing much easier with a focus mode as well. This is on all of my devices as well as it allows me to pick up right where I left off.
    Instapaper- For reading articles off-line.
    Downcast- Podcast catcher.
    Calendar- Self explanatory.
    Mail/Mailbox- Again, self explanatory. However, I haven't fully moved to Mailbox as it is only for Gmail.
    Tapatalk- Amazing forum app. If you frequent many different forums this is a must have.
    Notability- Best note taking app I have used. Tried others but I always come back to Notability. Only on my iPad but it syncs with my Dropbox, so I can access my notes on my other devices.
    CNN- For the news, obviously haha.
    Pages- Almost didn't list this but I do use it from time to time for writing papers. But I almost always choose iA Writer. I haven't had the best of luck with syncing from my iPad to my Mac, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. iA Writer always works.


    I have some of other productivity apps but most of them I barely use. There are a couple that I wish I used more like Wunderlist and Wordpress but I just haven't taken the time to utilize them. I'm considering starting my own blog about technology and doing reviews so Wordpress is an obvious solution but I just haven't had the motivation to start it (mainly I'm nervous/scared that it will fail). Sorry for the rant.

    Alli, have you used 1Password? Just curious as to what you think about DataVault vs 1Password and why you chose it.

    Evernote- Note Taking and storing anything i find on the web and To-Do list

    Box- I store everything from Docs to videos in it and i have 50 Gbs with it.

    Dropbox- I usually just store images and a few documents.

    Any.do - A really good task app even though i really don't use it much since evernote has reminders now.

    Quick password- Solid password manager for my iPhone.

    everclip- Makes it a breeze to clip articles i want to clip to my evernote when i use the safari or chrome browser.

    Week Cal- Has more options than the default calendar app.

    Let me put it this way. As an app reviewer, I've tried everything. I liked DataVault so much that I went to work for the company and am now their Director of Customer Success.

    I use a couple apps for school actually

    APU Mobile - My Schools App
    iStudiez Pro - Love this app it lets me track my classes and assignments as well as my grades.
    aNote - This is a great app for note taking for everyday use.
    Dropbox - I use this for all my Homework Assignments that way I know I don't lose them

    That is all I really use for my productivity apps I haven’t really found any others yet. Would love to get some suggestions?
