01. 30/30 (opens in new tab)
A free task manager like no other, 30/30 (opens in new tab) works by getting you to set times for a list of tasks. Start the timer, and when the time is done it moves on to the next task. It’s simple, great-looking, and can be very effective.
02. Evernote (opens in new tab)
Evernote allows you to save your ideas, things you like, things you hear and things you see. You can access your inspiration anywhere as it works with nearly every computer, phone and mobile device out there. And to make things easier, you can search by keyword, tag or even printed and handwritten text inside images.
03. Easily Do (opens in new tab)
EasilyDo styles itself as your virtual personal assistant. Which means it proactively reminds you of things like birthdays, organizes contacts, checks traffic, notifies you about bad weather, tracks packages and more. Ideally for the busy, easily distracted designer (know anyone like that?).

With SmartTM, you can work on tasks, projects and notes, receiving real-time notifications thanks to the Reminders aspect of the app and you'll be able to work from anywhere. It works with gCal, Apple iCal, Microsoft Exchange Cal, and you can schedule your tasks and
attach any Evernote documents to tasks as reference. It's a pretty well-rounded productivity app!
05. Free Spreadsheet (opens in new tab)
This productivity app does what it says on the tin. If you're faced with a load of projects and get behind on who owes you what, you can get all your cash in order with this handy spreadsheet. Simple, clear and concise, it's the perfect productivity app.
