In a nutshell, mobile productivity apps keep you on task. Whether you need a new note-taking app for when inspiration strikes, calendar and to-do apps to track dates and obligations, or finance managers to monitor your saving and spending, mobile productivity apps can handle all the details so that you're free to focus on big-picture items. A good mobile productivity app should help you work smarter, not harder. Here's what else to look for.
Without efficiency, there's no point in a mobile productivity app. The fewer steps and clicks it takes to access a particular function, the better. You should be able to get to where you need to go and do what you need to do with a minimum of friction. Evernote, for example, lets you jump into note-taking when you launch the app.
If a mobile productivity app takes long to learn, then it's no longer timesaving, and there's little incentive to switch to it.
A mobile productivity app that includes, for example, a calendar, to-do list, and notes section, such as Google Calendar can save you from having to jump from app to app to do what you need to do.
When working on a project with family, friends, or co-workers, you want them to be able to view, share, edit, and make copies of the work in progress. That's why Microsoft Office, G Suite, and Evernote are so popular.
Automation is a great timesaver. So if an app, such as IFTTT, can automate a task that you would otherwise have to perform manually, that's a great help.
Google Calendar gives you ready access to your events and reminders.
