Ever since the iPhone 4s was released, the App Store has seen a flood of productivity apps come onto the market. Some productivity apps have proven to be very well designed and are very helpful, while some only have a single feature, making them largely inefficient. The best productivity apps have a bundle of features, which we’ll look through in this article.
A quick note about the iPhone 4s compared to older versions of the iPhone – if you’re thinking about selling your old iPhone that is now dated (like a 3G), then it’s probably a good idea. The new iPhone 4S a great trade-up option, with it’s considerably brighter screen and improved Retina Display, is truly pleasing to the eye and makes every app come to life.
Now, let’s take a look at a few apps that are really popular:
Surfing the web on your phone and creating bookmarks is all fine, but what happens if you’re not in a Wi-Fi area, or you can’t afford a data plan? You’re pretty much stuck with nothing.
With Instapaper, you can create offline versions of websites that you can use for reference later. If you’re sifting through news websites but can’t finish the whole article, you can save it for later. Reports and other important documents pulled from the net can be saved as text files for you to read later.
It’s a handy tool, especially if you’re going to places with a buggy Internet connection.
ReQall has a wide variety of features that will surely help you with your daily tasks.
Like common productivity apps, you can create to–do lists, grocery lists and memos. You can also sync your notes to an online ReQall account and access them from your computer, if you happen to leave your phone at home while going to work.
One great feature of this app is the integration with instant messaging clients like Yahoo Messenger. You can receive reminders through that medium. You can also receive reminders via text and email.
ReQall even has a cool text–to–voice feature! For example, all your voice memos will be converted into text, so you don’t have to listen to your oddly recorded voice again.
Evernote is the quintessential productivity app. It’s got a multitude of features that you’ll certainly find useful.
One cool feature of Evernote, similar to ReQall, is the ability to sync all of your data to your computer. If you happen to have Evernote on a tablet like the Apple iPad, you can access your memos there also.
Basic features include creating to – do lists, and other types of lists. For more useful features, you can also create voice memos and even picture notes. Since the iPhone 4S has a great camera, you’ll definitely make use of that feature.
Another cool thing is the option to share notes through Facebook and Twitter and even save tweets to your Evernote!
You can also input prices and your other finances for recording and safekeeping.
These three apps are the go–to productivity apps of millions of iPhone users around the world. Not only do iPhone users have them, but other iOS users do too!
