The main app that directly coincides with the productivity parameter is mail. Some of us people have several accounts for their e-mails like for a personal mail you might have a Gmail account for the work you might have a Hotmail account. It is a hassle to maintain to different accounts. So here comes outlook. It can have access to exchange email accounts and it can also have some neat features like snoozing emails, archiving them and even has a focused inbox which it does a good job of it showing only the relevant emails. So I strongly recommend the Outlook email client for your work and life to improve your productivity.

  • Todoist + Evernote + Google Calendar = My whole digital Office and life & career management tools. I prefer Google Inbox to Outlook. I manage around 6 mail accounts in it.
    Tide: Never tried, simple google timer is enough for me for occasional usage.

  • Some might prefer with what they already have. But everyone should give these apps a try. Tide is like a timer with mood setter. Outlook is preferred by me because of the simplicity.
