[13] Top 15 Most Useful Tools in 2021

[13] Top 15 Most Useful Tools in 2021

This post was inspired by Wes Bos and his brilliant project - uses.tech in which I recently participated. So, today, I would like to tell you about some tools and software that I use on a daily basis. Here we go, Top 15 Most Useful Tools in 2021.

1). Notion

notion I would like to start with the Notion, which is almost an ideal tool for organizing things. It feels like Evernote on steroids. I could definitely recommend a Notion to anyone who likes planning and getting duck in a row.

2). Todoist

todoist Simply the best todo app that I have ever tried so far. Runners-up: Google Tasks, Things, Microsoft Todo.

3). Spark

spark I never really liked the standard Gmail app. I mean, it is ok, and I use it a lot, but on the other hand, I was always looking for a better alternative. I did use Newton for a couple of years, but then it became paid, and I switched to Spark. That decision was just right.

4). Endel

endel For me, the Endel was an absolutely surprising and unexpected choice since I have never used any musical apps on a daily basis. Well-designed, energetic, but calming.

5). Grammarly

Grammarly Grammarly improves the quality of my texts by a lot. Must have for writers. Even the free version (that I actually use) is very impressive.

9). Pocket Casts

pocket casts I truly like podcasts, and I have tried a lot of podcast apps, like Google Podcasts, Apple Podcasts, Castbox, and so on. Anyway, I feel that the Pocket Casts app is the most elegant, simple, and powerful.

10). Transmit

transmit "The gold standard of macOS file transfer apps" - as it described on its official website. By the way, it is made by the same company that created Nova.

11). OneNote

onenote One of the best applications for handwriting on a tablet. A little bit too high an entry barrier at the beginning, but it is worth it.

12). Strava

strava It is time for coming out. I am a statistics nerd, so I really love this kind of apps allowing you to record and store training data. Strava goes even further, it is more like Instagram for sports, not one more boring stats app.
