There are some great Apps out there I really enjoy and are a big help to me in many ways.

After writing about podcasts last week, and books I would recommend the week before, someone asked me this week if I would write my next article about Apps. I was not planning on it but thought why not. There are some great Apps out there I really enjoy and are a big help to me in many ways.

I decided that one criteria for my recommendations is that it would be both an App and a website so that anyone with a computer or device could possibly use it. So here are my most recent “favorite” Apps:

  1. ToDoIst is an amazing “to do” list application that works across all platforms and has amazing capabilities to help you organize all the things you need to do each day. There is a free version and then a subscription option with more features. 
  2. WhatsApp Web can be used both on your desktop and your iPad. This takes the power of WhatsApp and puts it in on your computer. This makes it much easier to respond quickly and to keep on top of all your messages as you are working on your computer/device.
  3. Udemy is an App and website for online learning and teaching with over 130000 courses and 35 million students. I have taken a number of courses myself for both professional and personal reasons. If there is something you want to learn more about there is probably a course on Udemy for it. 
  4. DuckDuckGo is a search engine that will not follow or track you and your search on the internet. This can protect you from Google and their attempts to track everything you are doing on the internet and turn that into money for them. Since DuckDuck does not track you, it keeps you from the filter bubbles that Google begins to create for you.
  5. Instapaper is a service that allows you to save online articles and web pages that you are reading so that they can read them later or simply to keep and organize them for reference. You can create categories, make highlights, and add tags to the articles through Instapaper.

Just like with the books and the podcasts, if you have an App that you really like and would recommend, do not hesitate to shoot me an email and tell me about it.
