Work Smarter, Not Harder – Five Great Productivity Apps to Use Today

We’ve all been there – struggling to make it through a homework assignment, counting down the minutes until the end of the work day, or finding several tasks to complain about all the time. We cross one item off the list and can immediately find three more tasks to replace it. Having a huge list of pending work can definitely pull you down and make you not want to even start. However, there are now tons of new apps and programs available that can greatly help you in getting your work done, efficiently and successfully.

First up on the list is Tide, a beautiful and simple app that combines the time management method called Pomodoro, along with various samples of white noise or sounds.

Personally, using this app makes me feel very relaxed as well as competent. The Pomodoro technique is actually one used by many apps of this kind, as it was first developed in the 1980s. It basically shows one how to work in blocks of time, first spending 25 minutes immersed in your task, followed by a 5 minute break. This app is available on the App Store and Google Play.

 

 

Another app that really shines through with its efficiency is Evernote. This app is all-in-one: you can create tons of separate notebooks, keeping track of any and everything you wish.

Since I love making lists and getting my thoughts down, this app really helped me with organizing lists in different places. You can take photos of things you want to remember or buy, and add those to your digital notebooks as well. This app is available on the App Store and Google Play, as well as PC platforms.

 

 

A great app for college students is called Forest: I used this in college and it really made me aware of how important it is to stay focused and work smarter,

not harder. This is a very useful app: you get work done and also support a great cause. Here’s how it works: you use a timer to work in blocks of time,

similar to Tide. However, as you’re working, you are growing virtual trees in a digital forest on the app. You grow more trees the longer that you work, and the coins that you earn are actually used to plant real trees, as Forest partners with the nonprofit Trees for the Future. How amazing! This app is available on the App Store and Google Play.

An app that really caught my eye was Simple Habit Tracker, a way totrack your habits. Sounds strange, right? It’s interesting to see how our habits are formed, psychologically or subconsciously.

We all pick up “bad habits”, and these repetitive actions can be very destructive over the long run. This app helps you to realize what those bad habits are, and to change them. You can also record the good habits you have, to keep track of how long you accomplish them. This app is available on the App Store.    

 

Last on our list, Trello is a productivity app that allows you to create multiple to-do lists. You can see what different projects you have to finish, and you can quickly prioritize what you need to do first versus last. Trello also allows you to schedule tasks to others who use the same app, making it easy for you to work with friends or colleagues. This app is available on the App Store and Google Play.

Utilizing spherical cameras, companies are creating interactive 360
videos and immersive experiences akin to virtual reality to market their products and services.

More and more companies are providing their consumers with a complete immersive experience of their products—literally. Filmed with an omnidirectional or multiple cameras, 360 degree videos are recordings that record views in all directions simultaneously, allowing the viewers to have a full perspective point of view. In order to change the point of view, mobile users can simply tilt their phone see new angles while desktop users can use their curser to drag the view of the video. According to Maria Lauret, Editor for Huffington Post, 360 videos are made through “stitching”. Utilizing footage from various cameras, the individual clips are synchronized and “stitched
together” to generate a single panoramic image.

From beer companies to the Royal Shakespeare Company, a wide variety of businesses are now utilizing 360 video technology to market their products to broader audiences. Popular platforms including Twitter, Facebook have all launched 360 video technology. These videos are a window into new experiences; viewers can not only experience themselves utilizing the product, but they can also explore new functions of the product in situations they are unfamiliar with. These commercials go beyond the realm of pure Google Cultural Institute offers 360-degree view inside of the Paris Ballet Opera advertisement; they allow the company to explore the visual perspective of storytelling, allowing audiences to gain new experiences behind the comfort of their screens.

Game changing Virtual Reality (VR) from Android (Project Tango)

Hot new VR tech - Project Tango from Android

Virtual reality (VR) typically refers to computer technologies that use software to generate realistic images, sounds and other sensations that replicate a real environment (or create an imaginary setting), and simulate a user’s physical presence in this environment, by enabling the user to interact with this space and any objects depicted therein using specialized display screens or projectors and other devices. VR has been defined as “…a realistic and immersive simulation of a three-dimensional environment, created using interactive software and hardware, and experienced or controlled by movement of the body” or as an “immersive, interactive experience generated by a computer”.

A person using virtual reality equipment is typically able to “look around” the artificial world, move about in it and interact with features or items that are depicted on a screen or in goggles. Most 2016-era virtual realities are displayed either on a computer monitor, a projector screen, or with a virtual reality headset (also called head-mounted display or HMD). HMDs typically take the form of head-mounted goggles with a screen in front of the eyes. Programs may include audio and sounds through speakers or headphones. Virtual reality environment may be captured using 360° stereoscopic spherical video and 360×360 surround sound from professional VR video cameras.
