They say, “Time is Money”. I say, “They’re right”.

In this day and age, almost every aspect of our lives can be controlled, in some cases even predicted, by technology. The days of hard work and difficult struggles are slowly being numbered, as technology advances at a speed, which can only be measured in light years!

Therefore, we at Henry & Smith bring to you the best of apps you need in order to make sure that 2017 is your most productive year!

#1: Rescue Time

Ever wonder how you’re sitting on your computer all day but not getting much done? Rescue time to the rescue!

This wonderful app gives detailed reports on exactly how much time you spend on different tasks, thereby giving you the opportunity to reflect upon and cut down time spent on social apps and networking sites, and getting real work done!

COST: 14-day free trial, then $9 a month or $72 a year

PLATFORM: Desktop/Mobile

#2: Focus Booster

Ever heard of the Pomodoro Technique?

This is a productivity enhancing technique wherein work slots are 25 minutes each, followed by 10–15 minute break sessions. Breaking work into smaller chunks and getting things done effectively adds up to more work done than actually taking up huge tasks one at a time, much less multi-tasking. Focus Booster works on this very principle and helps break down and schedule your work to help you get more done!

COST: Several packs such as Starter (free), Individual ($3/month) and Professional ($5/month)


#3: Evernote:

Ever thought of some brilliant idea or marketing feat but couldn’t note it down then and eventually lost the thought?

Evernote is here to save the day — it is a productivity tool that help you make notes on the go, make recordings at any time, keep all your files in one place , create lists or even text attachments.

COST: Free

PLATFORM: Mobile/Desktop

#4: 1–3–5 List

When you have a lot of work to be done over a span of time, this is the go-to app to help you organize your daily tasks. The 1–3–5 list divides your wok into 1 big task, 3 medium and 5 small tasks that need to be achieved on a daily basis. The user interface is also very smooth, giving you the opportunity to not only accomplish more, but also to not miss out on anything.

COST: Free (Basic) and $2.50/month (Premium)

PLATFORM: Desktop/Mobile
