We’re presenting you with a list of 8 iPhone and iPad apps that will help you improve your productivity on the go. They come with very useful features and big functionality for all your office needs.
Trello is probably the most widely used collaboration application for any mobile platform. It allows you to organize basically anything – from time to tasks to money. Trello is almost as effective as a traditional whiteboard. Through intuitive interface and simple navigation, it lets you quickly add and complete tasks as well as attach various files and share your lists with friends, family, and co-workers.
TimeTag is a relatively new time-logging app for iOS, but it has quickly climbed to the top of AppStore charts. By organizing and grouping your activities, it allows you to see how you’ve been spending your time at a glance. Its simple one-button interface allows you to tag and log your current activity or track money earned. All records can be saved on the device, synced with Dropbox, or exported as CSV, HTML, or Text.
I don’t think Evernote needs an introduction, but some of you may not know how powerful this little green app is. Evernote lets you quickly write down notes, capture ideas while they’re fresh, draft agendas, and create to-do lists. Other than that, the app allows you to tag and share your notebooks, manage expenses and bills, plan meetings and trips, view and edit PDF files, and read information from business cards to save them as rich digital contacts on your phone.
Evernote comes with cross-platform sync, which means that you can access your notebooks from any device on the planet.
Microsoft’s OneNote is probably my favourite note-taking application. I use it on my phone, Surface, and computer, because it lets me create and share beautiful notebooks where I can add sections and pages with ideas, drawings, photos, spreadsheets, and to-do lists as well as clip links and images from the web. OneNote uses your Microsoft account to seamlessly sync your notebook in the background. It is fast, reliable, and quite beautiful.
If you often work with diagrams, charts, and interface wireframes, you will find plenty of reasons to justify the purchase of OmniGraffle 2. This incredibly powerful application allows you to draw shapes and objects to create gorgeous diagrams and charts that you can present to your clients or co-workers. it would probably take me an hour to list all of the app’s features, but the most important are gesture-based interface, visual style creator, repository-based stencil database, synchronization between different devices, and PDF support
From many mind-mapping apps available on the AppStore, I like MindNote the most. It comes with a plethora of useful features and a gorgeous well-thought interface that is actually very helpful when it comes to capture ideas on the go. All recorded thoughts are organized and turned into neat tree-like charts, which can be later exported as PDF, OPML, PNG, FreeMind, or text files.
Pages is an expensive, yet very efficient writing application for iPhone and iPad. It can easily replace your computer when it comes to creating simple documents. Thanks to rich text-formatting options, iCloud sync, and over 60 pre-installed templates to choose from, Pages is a perfect application for writing on the go.

Formerly known as IFTTT, IF allows you to automate various tasks by creating simple recipes based on connections between apps and actions. For example, you can set it to send you a Push notification when your favourite Instagram user posts a photo, build a Twitter list from a specific hashtag, or automatically scan stories published on the Internet and save selected ones to Pocket.
