Whether you need to keep yourself organized, focused, productive, these productivity apps are here for you! These productivity apps can be found in the Apple App Store, and may also be available in the Android App Store as well.
Here is a productivity app that also doubles as a way to help the environment. Flora is a productivity app that you can use individually or connect across other phones so that you and your friends can stay focused. Its clean design is super simple to use. All you have to do is set the amount of time you or your group want to designate to your work and then press start.
On-screen you can see your virtual plant grow. If someone stops the timer or interrupts the app then the plat dies… do not be the person that lets the plant die! But, in the beginning, you can choose how much you want to donate if someone lets the tree die and interrupts the app. If you don’t want to or don’t feel comfortable setting a price you can always keep it at zero.
All the donations go to planting trees across the world. It is not only rewarding for you because you get your work done, but it is also rewarding for the environment.
2. Grammarly Keyboard
If you are someone who is a heavy writer, or even someone that sends emails at their job, this is a productivity app that you should not go one more second without having.
