In this article, we will be mentioning 5 of the best productivity apps that have been making remarkable success in the past month. Also, we will be explaining exactly why each of these apps can help you do your everyday things efficiently and in a more modern and tech oriented way.

Image to Word by Cometdocs

image-to-word

Image to Word is a top of the line OCR converter. It works on both iOS and Android and what Cometdocs prides most regarding this app is its ability to convert photos, native images, and even screenshots on the spot. The conversion output format is .docx which makes it perfect for future editing intentions, given that it’s the primary format for any kind of basic text editing. Since this app is a converter, it does not have an editing option within itself, however, Image to Word is very well connected with other apps on your phone via the sharing center. After the conversion, you are left with the optimal editing format, and the choice of editing app as well. Our suggestion is MS Word, but feel free to give others a try, such as Libreoffice or Quick Office!

This list wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t add a note taking app. While most people know about Evernote, iAnnotate, and OneNote, not very many people have heard of Simplenote.

Moving onto communication and organization apps, we can’t afford to skip Trello. The reason we can’t afford to skip it is because Trello is free to download. Not only that, Trello also offers a very affordable $45 yearly in-app purchase for a whole year!

We are rounding up this list with a great mailing app that was updated just a few weeks ago. What is your favorite email provider? Gmail? Yahoo? Hotmail?
