Productivity Apps

We all like to be productive and there are many free and paid version of productivity apps that many use to focus and become more productive. Some popular ones include Notion, Simplenote and others.

I use Simple note App because its local and I can use across my devices once I signup. I find it useful to write small note or draft in once device and use later in another device.

Here is a list of three productivity apps that Cassidy Williams, a software developer, uses daily in her workflow.

  • OBSIDIAN: Obsidian is a powerful knowledge base on top of a local folder of plain text Markdown files.
  • Todometer: a meter-based to-do list for your desktop and developed by Cassidy, who writes ” I made it because I am motivated by progress bars, and sometimes I just need a simple list prominently on my desktop of what I need to get done.”
  • Centered. Centered is a flow state to-do app. Cassidy describes how it works and helps helps her like this: “you plop in your to-do list for the day/session/whatever, each task has a certain amount of time assigned to it, and then you hit start. It’ll play some music designed to help you focus, and it has a coach that speaks to you about how much time is left in your current task, gives you breaks, and pokes you when you’re distracted.”

After browsing, I thought the OBSIDIAN and Todometer apps appears to be interesting and I plan to give it a try, whether they are suitable for my daily workflow and help me track my daily work and become more productive.

Hey, anything that helps become productive is always good. Why not try!
