Ever since I bought my Android smartphone I wanted to find the perfect productivity Android app to organize my schedule in an effective manner. I installed and uninstalled several productivity apps until I found the one I’m using now, which I consider it to be the best of all the apps I’ve tested so far.
Before telling you what productivity Android app I think is the best, I will review the top 5 apps I like, with pros and cons for each one of them. My needs may not be the same as yours, so the app that is perfect for me may not be 100% suitable for you too. That is why I decided to review 5 of the best productivity Android apps I like and you can choose your favorite!
Evernote is an app that helps you save your ideas and organize them. You can use it to take notes, create lists, capture photos and record voice reminders.
- Easy synchronization process across the computers and devices you use.
- Evernote Clipper app for desktop.
- User-friendly design.
- Option for adding sketch/handwriting notes.
- Organize notes by tags/notebooks.
- Voice reminders.
- I actually like this app a lot, so I didn’t find any cons yet. It would be perfect if it had something like Google Calendar incorporated in it, but maybe that would make it less user-friendly and a bit too complex and difficult to use.
Wunderlist is actually among the first productivity apps I tested. It’s great for creating to-do lists, planning trips or creating shopping lists. If you want a nice list-making app, this could be the perfect choice for you.
- Syncs with all your devices.
- Simple, easy-to-use design interface.
- Doesn’t sync with Google Tasks.
- Free version is pretty basic.
- Only good for list-making.
Google Calendar is an app I am still using. You can use it to display events from your Google accounts and sync them with your Android device.
- Schedule events and effectively organize your time.
- Option to quickly email the event guests.
- Simple, clean design.
- I didn’t find any cons. In my opinion this is the best Android calendar app there is, although I have to pair it with Evernote in order to satisfy all my needs.
- Clean, simple interface.
- Easy to use.
- Has time reminders.
- Voice memos.
- Few features.
- It’s hard to keep it organized as it doesn’t have any tags, folders, or sub-notebooks.
- Clean and simple interface.
- Good task-management features.
- Has plugins for browsers.
- Good organization features: tags, projects, filters.
- Didn’t find any. It’s a very good app for manaing tasks and making lists.
