5 Best Apps To Master Your Productivity

Everyone has their favorite mobile app they love to use. But, what are the best ones for entrepreneurs and startups to help you master your productivity? #TeamBuddytruk wanted to throw their two cents in about their favorite apps that help make their business lives a little easier. In the digital age, it’s important to have a “go to app”. Especially if you’re working long hours and chasing success. With the apps listed below, we think you can have an edge on the competition. So, here our 5 Best Apps we think can help you be more productive:

1. Acorns 


ACORNSNetted by the Webbys, Acorns offers a smart and easy way to invest your money for entrepreneurs with low risk investments. Simply connect your credit or debit card and every time you make a purchase, Acorns rounds up to the nearest dollar. Then, the app invests the runoff in a diversified portfolio of respected low-cost ETFs that match your risk tolerance. Buddytruk Founder and Chief Executive Buddy, Brian Foley swears by the mobile app, “I literally don’t think about investing my money at all anymore. Acorns just does it automatically! When you’re living the startup life, it’s very tempting to invest all your money in your business, so that it stays “financially healthy” and to forget about your [own] personal financial health. This app keeps me balanced.”


Acorns is free to download on your mobile device. Desktop is coming soon.
**You can get started with as small of an investment as $5. For more information on fees just go here.

SPOTIFY – Music for everyone! Spotify isn’t just an awesome source for great music, it’s also a necessity for Ryan Salmons, our Chief Technology Buddy. “Sometimes when I’m working on code or some projects, I just need something to block out the outside sound so I can stay focused,” said Ryan. “Spotify is one of the best apps because it stops the distractions and helps me prioritize my work.”

Spotify is free and available on your mobile devices and desktop.

4. Evernote


EVERNOTE – The essential productivity tool for anyone in any role, Evernote is the “workspace to get it done.” Buddytruk Creative + Marketing team member, CJ Johnson swears by it: “Evernote is a great organizational tool. From creatives to tech heads. You can use it on desktop and mobile devices which means you can take it with you anywhere you go. One of the best things about it is that you can share notes easily with clients and co-workers. So, if you want to stay organized and put your thoughts into action, this is the app for you.” CJ loves it so much that he was even quoted about it in the CIO article, 13 Evernote Tips For Businesspeople.
