No matter the industry, role or organization you find yourself in, there’s no denying the fact that the working world has changed forever. Many of us are working from home or in a hybrid model, and each come with their own set of pros and cons. Whether you find yourself more productive or prone to distraction while working from home, there are plenty of tools and technologies at our disposal today that can help give our workday a boost. If you’re looking to make 2022 your most accomplished year yet, these work apps may give you a head start.

4 Apps That Will Boost Your Workday

These work apps will help you be more productive, save you time and keep you on track to reach your goals in 2022.

1. IFTTT (If This Then That)

Looking to take advantage of the wonderful world of automation? Look no further than the IFTTT app, an abbreviation for If This Then That. The app allows users to take advantage of powerful automation tools to customize daily tasks like posting on social media, calendar reminders and the like. The IFTTT app is perfect for anyone who feels like if their head wasn’t on straight, they’d probably lose it.

2. Otter Voice Meeting Notes

Sick of manually taking notes during meetings (especially the ones that could’ve been an email?). Otter Voice Meeting Notes, the app that generates rich notes from meetings, presentations and interviews using AI, will do this tedious task for you, so you can focus fully on the conversation at hand. The app also features plenty of nifty tools that let you organize, collaborate and create, helping you make the most out of your time at work.

3. Cloze

With so many apps, platforms and devices today, it can be a dizzying task just trying to keep up with all your contacts. The smart app Cloze helps you keep tabs on the people that are important to your professional life, prompting you to keep in touch and remember important details when needed. By automatically tracking your activity across apps like Facebook, LinkedIn, messaging and more, the app will help you ensure you’re always on track with your customers and business associates.

4. Forest

Staying focused on one particular task in today’s digital age of information can be a next to impossible feat. If you find your attention often wanders off to apps like Instagram or TikTok when you’re trying to get work done, you may want to check out the Forest app, a simple yet genius creation that will help you stay focused on what’s important.

Whenever you want to focus on a task, plant a tree in the app and allow it to grow. If you leave the app early to check social media or another app, your tree will die. Overtime, your hard-earned trees will turn into a beautiful forest, and if that’s not a worthy reward then we don’t know what is. The best part is that users can spend virtual coins they earn in the app to support the planting real of trees, which means your productivity is good for the environment, too.
