Ramp up your Productivity with these Apps and Tools
Did you know that 71% of people feel more productive while they listen to music?
Here are some apps and tools to help you ramp up your productivity and make work a lot more enjoyable, we think.
Best For: Focusing with music
Brain.fm is an app that plays music designed for the brain to enhance focus, relaxation, meditation, naps and sleep within 10 to 15 minutes of use. Brain.fm uses scientific research to design and play music based on your desired outcome.
Cost: Free to download.
Best For: Staying focused
Forest is a great app for people who have a hard time putting down their phones and focusing on a single task. Whenever you want to focus, simply open the Forest app and plant a tree. This tree will grow as long as you are focused and not touching your phone. If you do exit the app at some point before the task is completed, your tree will die. Users can eventually turn these trees (and hard work) into an entire forest.
Cost: $1.99 with option for additional in-app purchases
Best for: Noise cancellation
Krisp noise cancelling AI-powered app that removes all kinds of background noises during a call in real-time and allows people to communicate with each other professionally.

Best for: Explaining processes and creating “How To” guides

To develop a Scribe, simply click “Record” via the browser extension and continue your workflow in another app. Scribe will automatically create a how-to guide with written instructions and screenshots highlighting each click.
