Best Productivity Apps for Busy Parents

Productivity apps allow you to create digital notebooks for everything from tracking expenses, managing your calendar, and creating slideshow presentations. Students and teachers have different productivity needs than most professionals. Many of the front-line tools work well in both the office and classroom environment, but there are enough differences that we thought an education-specific list of productivity apps would be helpful.

The problem is, we live in a world where there are thousands of choices. There's countless different to-do list apps that each do slightly different things, and countless ways to save a receipt or clip a screenshot.

You'll probably only need one tool from each of category:

  • Task / project management app
  • Note-taking / clipping app
  • Document / process management app
  • Calendar

Here is the list of few productivity apps to help busy parents to simplify their work and personal life.
