Five great productivity apps for when you're working at home in the UAE

If you're working from home right now (or ever, to be honest), it's easy to lose focus.

Whether it’s in your personal of professional life, working towards a goal can motivate you to achieve it.

Need some help keeping things on track? Here are five productivity apps that might come in handy.

Microsoft To Do

If you just need to have a clear idea of what needs done then Microsoft’s To Do is a good start point. Create simple to do lists and set dates and reminders to make sure you’re on top of everything. Plus you can also collaborate in online groups and set deadlines together to achieve goals, get work done and make sure nothing goes under the radar.

Productive

Helping you to form good habits, keep on track with all your projects and motivating you to achieve your goals, is Productive. Set yourself one-off and recurring targets, including everything from improving sleep or drinking water, to completing specific tasks, setting reminders and creating streaks for achieving your goals.

Rescue Time

Is balancing your time causing you concern, or maybe you’re spending too much time on your phone? Rescue time tracks the sites you visit and categorises them and also logs the amount of times you pick up your phone so you can see if you’re spending too much time on social media instead of working, or if your smartphone is distracting you from achieving your goals.
Free. Available on Apple and Android devices.

Todoist

Keeping on top of everything is simple with Todoist, which lets you easily track one-off and recurring tasks on a simple-to-use interface. You can also add shared projects, priority levels, and integrate with programs like Dropbox, Slack and more to keep on top of projects in one place.
Free. Available on Apple and Android devices.

Trello

This handy app is ideal for co-working and organising a team with a simple list-making format. Set up a series on columns and create a flow so that every process involved in a job or project is clear and all team members with access to the page can clearly track progress and contribute to achieving your goals.
Free. Available on Apple and Android devices.
