Staying at home for months now has already taken a toll on some while the coronavirus wreaks havoc. With most of the world on lockdown, many businesses have closed leaving millions with no work. However, there are still businesses who still continue to operate and workers continue with the hustle and bustle of work in a different setting – at home.
Aside from the pressure of work, you face another challenge of having to do it in the comforts of your home. Don’t you just want to sit on the couch all day and watch something fun on Netflix? Or maybe just sleep on your bed recovering from all those sleepless nights!
Perhaps you might need help from apps to improve your productivity while working at home. We have a list of the top Android apps that will surely get you going in this time of the pandemic.
Trello is a list-making application that lets you create boards for different projects and makes tasks for every project as well. For example, you can create a board for a specific project. On that board, you can make cards that would serve as tasks to get the project done.
The good thing about it is that you can add members to each card so you can start a discussion and work with them hand-in-hand. Simply drag the cards from one board to another to indicate that each task is done. It’s that simple!
You can add labels, checklist, attachments, and even due date that you see fit are needed to get the tasks started and most importantly finish it. Everything in Trello is totally customizable, so you can have everything according to your needs to get you going.
It is totally impossible to discuss business matters in your office conference room now, isn’t it? Although you can stay connected with colleagues through messaging apps, there is another way to do it more effectively.
Zoom is an app that provides videotelephony and online chat services. It is ideal for conferences and meetings since the app can accommodate up to 100 people with crystal clear, face-to-face video calls, screen sharing, and messaging – all for free!
JoyofAndroid reported that Zoom has faced security issues like “zoombombing” where people can gate-crash calls that did not place any restrictions, and hackers being able to steal Windows login credentials through the app.
But those issues did not falter Zoom’s popularity as there is still a significant rise in its users. One of the reasons is that it is packed with features that are very useful for people working at home.
Getting things done while staying at home is very important. Slack is one of the apps that will help you stay as productive as possible. It brings team communication in one place allowing for more seamless communication and collaboration.
You can create channels where you can add the right people and have discussions regarding a certain topic. You can also privately message individuals and send attachments to them. What’s more? Slack allows for a phone call with anyone in your team so you can set things straight and get more work efficiently.
Are you spending too much time on one task? Honestly, keeping track of time in these times is very hard, especially with many factors at play. However, you have deliverables and you need to deliver on time.
Spend your hours wisely with the Hours app. Set the timer for a task, then write what you are doing and start tracking. After that, you can stop the timer, and Hours then takes care of the organizing what you are tracking.
For example, you are about to make marketing content for your company: start Hours timer, and let’s say it takes you four hours to accomplish it, stop the timer. Hours then will group this particular task so you can use it the next time you do the same task.
This way, you can make use of your time wisely and get more things done.
If all the work is a little bit too much, you can start breaking it down to smaller chunks with the help of WorkFlowy. The app allows you to organize tasks by making detailed lists so you won’t feel too overwhelmed.
It is the perfect app to create a to-do list, reminders, ideas for articles, and just anything you can think of. You can even use it to jot down details during a meeting so you don’t miss out on the important stuff, segregate them into categories, and start working to each of them.
Productivity-driven Android apps everywhere you go!
