I won’t ever believe if to tell me that you are not using any of the websites like Facebook and WhatsApp or doing a handful of searches on Google. We now have so much access to information, and that too at our fingertips.
Be it how to cook something amazing, or how to dress like celebs, the Internet has every answer. No matter how stupid or irrelevant the question is.
Life has become so much easy with the Internet. But, then there is a downside of it as well.
Distraction, Distraction, Distraction

You keep getting notifications from your friends, there is an endless chain of forwarded messages on WhatsApp and then you have to work to earn you bread and butter.
Here are few apps that are helping me save some of my work time.
Pushbullet: Saves the time you spend to pick up your phone every time there is a notification on it, if your phone is away, it tells you who is calling, without even having to pick your phone, SMS and other alerts are notified right on your PC.
Surely is does not take a lot of time to pick your phone up and see that notification, but if you are getting too many of them, the total adds up to a big chunk of time.
Whatsapp Web: A very long awaited feature many users wanted from WhatsApp. It has become a universal App for sending and receiving messages, even my Dad and Mom is on WhatsApp and send me messages every now and then.
Then there are groups, school, college, hostel, colleagues, team etc. You can easily spend hours inside your tiny screen. But WhatsApp gives you the ability to respond to message super fast, you can type messages on your full-fledged keyboard. plus you can keep working on other stuff as well, not that it’s efficient but still better than using WhatsApp on mobile.
Google Keep: The to-do lists have been there since the elephants had those really long horns (or perhaps it’s called Tusk). But when Google brought Google Keep, i think I was the first person to switch to it.
It’s super fast note taking app, and the fact that you are already logged into your Gmail all the time, you are logged into your Google Keep all the time. And that’s awesome
From copying text between Devices (PC and Mobiles), we can do much more with it, Here is a complete list. It just makes life easy.
Wunderlist: Wanderlust is a wonderful app, yes, a part of it is a to-do list, but it’s a tool to organize a lot of lists, and perhaps the best way to do it. If you have a lot of things going on then Wunderlist might help you remember everything you want to remember.
I have a list of movies I want to Watch, things I want to buy, posts I have to write, project, shopping list, you name it. It deserves space on your mobile.
Google Drive: Google Drive has Google Docs, which is Microsoft Office done right, the reason I say that because you can literally take your entire documents with you anywhere, without having to take anything with you. Meaning, everything is in the cloud, and you just have to login into your Google account.
Docs lets you write, which makes it great for writers, it lets you edit MS Word Files easily, you can use Spreadsheet in place of Excel, Slides works like PowerPoint and yes, you can collaborate with others.
Share the document and allow them to edit or just read it. They can comment, on the documents, it works great.
The list can go on and on and on, and the list doesn’t have to stop. Use the comment section to add apps that make you productive, that let you save time, that helps to do stuff easily, help others and other will help you. God Bless.
