5 of the Best Productivity Apps for Android
Busy professionals often lament the problems with being out of the office or being away from their work at the most inopportune times. However, today’s smartphones make it easier than ever to get a job done and make last-minute adjustments from anywhere at any time. One of the best methods for improving productivity is by using one or more of these best productivity apps for Android.
The AirDroid app makes it possible to view and send Android information, such as texts and call logs, directly from a desktop computer. In fact, many desktops can fully mirror Android data, making it possible to move seamlessly from the smartphone to the computer. Although this convenient app is free, some features require a yearly subscription to gain full access.
As the best office suite for Android phones, the OfficeSuite 8 requires a subscription, but it provides almost desktop computer-like functionality. Making presentations, spreadsheets and documents has never been easier on a smartphone, and this suite even offers cloud storage options and the ability to convert documents to PDFs.
While the Android calendar that comes standard with all devices is bare and hardly interactive, the Today Calendar app works seamlessly with Google Calendar to provide a scrollable agenda and customizable options. Available in both a free, ad-supported version and an option for a small fee, this app provides functionality and the ability to sync with PC calendars.
Perfect for those who make endless notes, this app allows users to create multiple notebooks that can be customized, saved and even emailed to others. Able to accumulate notes, lists, voice reminders and images, Evernote syncs with its own service that is accessible from multiple locations using the cloud.
Replacing the potentially clunky keystrokes of many smartphones, this free app provides next-word predictions based on past typing habits to speed up writing. Also, SwiftKey allows the swipe-to-type option that inputs text when the user’s finger slides from one letter to another without lifting.
