Best iPhone apps for 2019



Category: Productivity

Price: Free

Evernote syncs across all of your devices so that you don't have to fret about switching between devices. More than just a note-taking app, create checklists and clip web pages for later reference in one uncluttered workspace. You can even share and discuss pages from within the app, taking the hassle out of collaborative work.

Main Idea: This app is here to help you work, but only if you let it. Evernote is an indispensable tool if you use it regularly, but falls flat if you don't take advantage of its unique features.

Inbox by Gmail

Google Inc

Price: Free

Despite having automated cars, drones, and heavy machinery, we're still living the dark ages when it comes to email, which requires plenty of manual attention and time. Mail technology is getting smarter, however, and Google has learned from Dropbox's experiment with Mailbox when it comes to features such as bundling similar messages together and making reminders into separate entries for easy reviewing.

Main Idea: Google's latest offering in the battle to reach inbox zero, and keep it that way.

Alternatives: Microsoft Outlook, Gmail

Main Idea: Create and send professional invoices using a variety of templates from any of your Android devices. If you have trouble keeping information organised and need a more comprehensive and professional way to track money owed, money paid, and money received, this is the app for you.
