Evernote is one of the world’s most popular apps, with approximately 100 million users from all corners of the globe. Its wide range of functions, which go beyond simple note-taking, is the key to its success.

Evernote helps you create documents, add voice notes or pictures to them, and share them with your contacts, which is ideal for collaborating with colleagues. Sharing images works best with devices with powerful cameras connected to fast networks, such as the Samsung Galaxy s6 on T-Mobile’s network. Evernote is good for productivity because it keeps almost everything you need all in one place, so you’ll spend less time hunting for information. The reminder function helps you stay on track.

Dealing with a barrage of emails in several accounts can undermine your productivity, but Microsoft Outlook, a free app, makes things easy. The client works with Outlook.com, Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, Yahoo Mail, Gmail, and Apple iCloud, so you can check all your emails in one place. It also puts the most important emails at the top, so you can action only what’s urgent and filter the rest to your “others” folder when you have more time. It’s also integrated with the Outlook calendar, so you can easily cross-reference your schedule while making plans via email.

focus@will: Streaming Music Keeps you on Track

Many Americans listen to the radio while they work, unaware that when they’re singing along or tapping their toes, they’re losing focus. The focus@will is a streaming music service, but unlike Spotify or Pandora its instrumental music has been tweaked and overseen by leading neuroscientists and ADHD experts to enhance focus and productivity. The music soothes the fight or flight response and engages the brain’s limbic system to increase attention and concentration levels. The app also features a productivity tracker.

focus@will offers a free 15-day trial before you need to pay for a yearly, two-year, or lifetime membership. The $2.08 a month for the yearly subscription is the most popular choice. That might seem pricy when there are so many free music apps on the market, but trials show focus@will increases focus by 12 to 15 percent, and extends concentration periods by up to 400 percent.
