Inkflow is for the brainstorming ones out there. If you’re the one who gets ideas when you are travelling your way home or when you are at a restaurant with no pen or paper in sight, then this one’s for you. Inkflow helps you note things down or even re-imagine your ideas in a visual manner by sketching and drawing. You also create PDFs of the same and share with your colleagues right away. The only issue of the Inkflow is that it is only available on Apple stores but many alternative apps are available on Android.
2. Focus Booster
The biggest problem with us procrastinators is that we use our phones as a medium of distraction. We distract ourselves from work by checking a random WhatsApp message on a family group. We trick our minds to think that “I’m just checking that message because what if it’s a really important message” The Focus Booster app helps you focus on the task by locking your phone whenever you want to and for whatever time period . The Focus booster app is based on the Pomodoro technique which maintains sustainable and long term productivity.
Technology against technology FTW!
