5 Best Productivity Android Apps You Should Start Using Today!

Monday, July 14th, 2014 by | Filed Under: Android, Smartphones

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! 

1. Evernote


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. 

2. Wunderlist


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. 

3. Google Calendar

google calendar

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. 
google keep
You can use Google Keep for making quick notes on your device. If you need just a simple note-making app, then this might be suitable for you. 
  • 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. 
Todoist is a task-management app, perfect for making lists, organizing tasks and adding reminders.
  • 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. 
So, these being said, my favorite Android productivity app is Evernote. I like it because it has everything I need, from managing tasks, creating lists, to taking notes and making voice memos. I’ve used, and still use some of these apps and I recommend them all. Choose them depending on your own needs. Besides these apps, I also use Google Drive and Dropbox. They are pretty amazing! I use them to backup my files and also to easily transfer files from my computer to my phone. 
Hope you’ll find this review helpful.

    Wunderlist and Google Calendar are two of the tools which I have been associated with from a very long time and coincidentally have earned a good amount of productivity with a respective level so as to reach out to the target.

    Well there are lot many other apps and tools which contributes us to be productive but I would like to add one more in this list which I have been using from a very long time, the cloud based time tracking software from Replicon. Time is one of the major factor which is directly associated with the productivity and some what the term should be taken into high consideration for a better approach of end result.
