24 Must-Have, Everyday Workhorse Apps

Top 24 apps (logos shown clockwise from 7 o’clock): Timely, Accuweather, Gmail, Podcast Addict, Google Voice, Google Hangouts Dialer, Hiya Caller ID & Block, Google Keep, SimpleMind, MindMeister, Floating Stickies, Google Docs/Sheets/Slides, Wunderlist, Google Maps, Feedly, Puffin, Xodo PDF, FBReader, Pocket, Google Photos, Fast for Facebook, Twilight, Atmosphere

If you’re like me, your mobile device (phone, tablet, etc.) is loaded with apps. In fact, I’ve just checked and discovered that I’ve got hundreds installed! And that left me wondering, “How many of these things do I need? Which of these do I depend on every day?”

After some reflection, I came up with a list of my “24 must-have, everyday workhorse apps.” Most are FREE or have free versions available. And, to the extent that they keep me personally productive, they help me be a better project manager and team member. See the complete list with brief descriptions at my WORTH SHARING site.
