8 Commuting Apps You Should Use Daily To Maximize ProductivityParizzo Webmaster
It’s easy to waste time when commuting. Whether you are waiting at a traffic light or stuck in traffic, it’s important to realise that time waits for no one. Every minute counts! You could either decide to spend the time scrolling through social media feeds or get things done and enhance your productivity.
Luckily for you, we curated a list of fun, creative and highly productive apps that will help you make the most use of your time, start your day on a great note and even get to enjoy some free time for yourself.
We love Evernote because it’s great for organization and it’s a super virtual manager that allows you to segment your tasks and jot down your ideas. What’s more? You can toggle easily between each note on the app, share it with your friends and colleagues, save it to Google Drive and even open live chat windows for team collaborations.
We’ve also got great news for voice note lovers. Evernote allows you to easily record your ideas or thoughts, save them and share them later.
We bet almost everyone uses Gmail. We don’t know about you; but boy, there’s something satisfying about arriving at the office without having to sort through piles of emails.
Gmail’s mobile app allows you to easily check your inbox, delete unnecessary or spammy messages, reply to urgent emails, schedule emails for sending, quickly label emails with colour-coded tags based on importance, set reminders to reply to a particular email and even snooze emails so they reappear in your inbox at a later time and date specifically set by you.
Want to learn a new language for free without breaking the bank or creating a budget? We recommend you use Duolingo. The app has over 15 distinct languages available to users. Simply sign up and select the language you want to learn. And voila, you’re good to go!
We also love the presentation of the language lessons – they are short, simple, highly visual and painless. The app is super intuitive as well. Be warned though – you can get addicted to it. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
If you are a podcast lover, then, you’d love Audible. Owned by Amazon, Audible contains the world’s largest collection of audio resources – podcasts, audiobooks and even listenable programming. Whatever audio file or resource you need, Audible is ever ready, and at the comfort of your pockets.
It also allows listeners to listen to content without showing ads and constantly updates its library with new releases across various genres.
Also owned by Amazon, Kindle allows you to download books and enjoy them from the leisure of your phone or tablet. Irrespective of the genre of reading material you want, Kindle has something for everyone.
6. Google News
Want to stay updated on the latest news, trends and resources worldwide? Worry no more. With Google News, you can easily commute on your way to work and enjoy reading about the latest news and happenings from around the world.
We recommend Twitter for social media lovers and career professionals such as social media and community managers who want to stay abreast of the latest hashtags, social media discussions, brand discussions and collaborations, as well as for social listening purposes.
Nothing beats getting to work without haggling buses, tricycles, motorcycles alongside other commuters or waiting in a long queue to take the BRT. With the Parizzo Passenger App, you can easily set your route details on the app and the Parizzo will match you with car owners on your route willing to carpool with you. You get to enjoy the comfort of a private car at an affordable cost.
We advocate that you try these apps out, and who knows? You just might be looking forward to making your daily commute more productive.
