Mobile devices have become a necessity as we use it for work, leisure and everyday tasks. With almost four hours a day dedicated to our phones, it might be beneficial to use that time more wisely and get the most out of your mobile device.

Here are some applications that we decided would be best for anyone who needs the most out of their devices.

To Stay On-Task:

Focus – Time Manager: For some people, it is difficult to maintain focus and be efficient during the time that you have. Focus (iOS & MacOS) does a good job of splitting up the time you have to make sure you focus on whatever task you have at hand. You can allocate 25 minutes of time to focus on your work, and take a couple minutes off before you finish the task at hand.

Wunderlist: It’s good to stay on top of what you have to do, and this app does a great job of reminding you of what tasks you have to do. What’s nice about the applications it that you can collaborate on the tasks and get things done on your own or on a team.

To Stay Calm:

Headspace: After a long day, it might be good to take a couple minutes off to reduce the amount of stress you might have. Meditation has been proven to help individuals stay healthy, improve sleep and maintain focus.

Calm: During the night, many people are still on their phones, reducing the quality of sleep they will have and affect their next day. This app is known for helping individuals improve their sleeping habits and the overall quality of sleep for a good night’s rest.

To Pass the Time:

Nuzzle: This news app has curated and personalized news for all types of people. It is always good to stay on top off what’s going on in the world, and this app does a fantastic job of making sure you’re on top of the news too.

Podcasts: Whether you’re walking, driving or biking, it might be nice to switch it up from your music playlist. Podcasts are a great source of information and entertainment to get the most out of your commute. Spotify, Overcast and Google Podcasts are great apps you can use to start listening. Here’s some of our favorites:
