    Zenkit

    The project management tool that grows with you

    Patrick Schüller6Marketing/SEO @Zenkit · Written
    Really great tool for project management and idea management. Offers many helpful views on your data and has great collaborative features. Also, scales with the size of the project. I and my team have been using Zenkit for a year now. It´s amazing! Love it!

    Very flexible to use, with different views (e.g. Kanban, calendar... ) and as many custom fields as you need. Thanks to this flexibility, Zenkit can be adjusted to different types of work flow, from simple todo list to managing larger projects. I'm using Zenkit mainly as personal Kanban board - very happy with it!

    Taskade

    A minimal and sharable task list.

    A fully powered task list that doesn’t require others to create an account and login. Makes it super easy to convince people to use it.

    Todoist

    Organize your life. Then go enjoy it.

    The natural language input makes entering tasks as easy as thinking about them. One of the best features. Its very simple but lets you go very deep if you want.

    Slack

    Be less busy. Real-time messaging, archiving & search.

    Sam Taylor3Founder @ AUM Studio · Written
    Despite being a huge Google Calendar user, I also use another Slack bot that helps me to keep an eye on my daily meetings. The Cisco Spark Meeting Notes plugin on Slack allows you to get a direct message every morning with a layout of your day’s meetings, pulling in data from your calendar. It’s very easy to setup and it works great for getting the day ready and preparing agendas to keep your meetings productive.

    Slack should be the only communication tool your organization uses. How else can you send auto-generated Giphy's during a much needed moment? The integrations are also badass.

    Notion 1.0 Web + Mac App

    Docs, wikis, tasks – a minimal & unified workspace for teams

    Chris PorterMy passion is design, music & photos. · Written
    You can build a simple task list or you can create a full on project management system. You can manage just a list of clients or build the ultimate CRM. You can create a private notebook or build a full company plan to share with others. It's a great productivity system that you build yourself. Great for if you used every project management or CRM app and it was either underwhelming or overwhelming.

    I can't recommend this highly enough. Killer features for me are: nested todos, nested documents, and code blocks. It's so nice having a tool that I can keep literally every piece of content for my business inside of.

    RescueTime

    Analytics on your daily habits and productivity

    Sam Taylor3Founder @ AUM Studio · Written
    Manage your time. Time management tools like RescueTime can help you take control of your day. I use it to track how much time I spend on different websites and applications. The app is easy to set up and it runs in the background of your computer or mobile device, tracking, measuring and categorizing your activity. What’s great about this tool is that you can set goals then work toward achieving them, like spending a maximum one hour per day on email. RescueTime also provides a reporting dashboard so you can see exactly where you’ve been procrastinating and whether or not you achieved your goals.

    Bear

    A beautiful, flexible writing app for notes and prose

    Rg EnzonI craft personal brands 🎉 · Written
    I personally use Bear for personal tasks. I also get to write drafts for upcoming blog posts that I wanted to post. I'm also a huge UI freak, so you should say that I'm pretty picky with apps I have installed on my phone. Anyways, check it out. You'll love it!

    Bear has become my go to app for taking notes, documenting, putting ideias into paper and many more. It's by far my favorite note taking app. It has a really clean interface, great for focused work, also markdown support, and organizational tags. I recommend this app for anyone.

    Slite has just changed the way we take notes and share knowledge within our organisation. It's particularly helpful to share content with the existing team, and providing newcomers with the knowledge base they need. A real game changer in collaboration!

    Trello, Slack, & Mailchimp are badass. Zapier links them together and makes them even more badass. Super easy to use & great customer support. I've streamlined & automated entire workflows at my internship with it. Pretty sweet.

    We love Zapier so much, we also integrated Proposable into it. Let your team know when you close a deal to multiple systems, push data from one SaaS to another. Genius. Oh, the Zapier guys are also pretty cool..

    Forest

    Put down your phone and stay focused. Or a tree will die. 🌳😵

    Pavan Sethi15building things. · Written
    One of my favorite apps :) Set a timer for how long you cannot touch your phone. The more time you stay focused, the more coins you get to plant virtual trees in your forest (if you touch your phone, your tree dies!). The best part is that coins can eventually be used to plant real trees!

    Orcaso.io

    Gamify your team work and get things done super faster

    Deepak KumarCEO, Orcaso.io · Written
    Deepak Kumar made this product
    Orcaso.io is designed around the idea of gamification, in other words, play and fun. And play and fun are the main elements of turning a strenuous work into an enjoyable one. Orcaso.io is based on few simple concepts taken directly from games. Employees gather points by completing tasks, they get positioned on the scoreboard, and they compete against each other. Remember those old arcade games where you had a scoreboard and the kid whose name was in the first place was the coolest kid? In the meantime, all other kids committed hard to beat the high score. They worked so hard they became masters at the game. With Orcaso, you’re turning work into a game. Everything in Orcaso is built around this video game idea. If this sounds childish to you, then Orcaso isn’t a right tool for you. If you’re able to connect the two elements, then you’re ahead of the curve, and you can use the power of Orcaso.
