The notepad on your phone. She thinks that it is an underutilized tool and those who use it are fanatical about it.  Adrienne said that it’s her go-to app where she has different types of lists. It’s more like her temporary storage.

Google Keep

Google Keep

Google keep is a little fancier than the notepad. I use google keep for my notes. I love that I can search within it. While Adrienne uses google keep as her permanent storage or a file cabinet.

Google Drive

She said she uses this app to any notes she wants to become something. Plus, it’s great for sharing.

Grammarly – Browser Extension

It is more accurate in spell check and less annoying than other applications. It helps you with tone a little bit. It also corrects your typing.

Voice Dream

This application will read any document you type into. A great time saver. You can listen to any articles or essays while folding laundry.



This type of application is great for team projects and communication with the team. It’s like an elaborate network of post-it notes. You can set up boards for different types of projects you are working with and use it to keep track of your multiple projects. You can create an alarm, checklist, tag, etc. You can also share it with other people or your team.

Click Up

If Trello is good, ClickUp is way better. The good thing is you can import what’s on your Trello in here. You can customize it the way you want it or the way it suits your needs. You can make it look like Asana or Trello.

Versatility – That’s the mark of a good app when everyone can find a lot of ways to use it.
