You know what’s tricky? Working on so many tasks together, you don’t know what’s coming next. Someone might suggest, “Why don’t you multitask?” In my experience, multitasking is the most tedious chore. The amount of effort you put into multitasking will lead to losing focus and increase the opportunity for errors.
But, if you focus on one task, you can complete that on time and improve your precision. So, how can you manage all these tasks? There are so many mediums to keep your notes, and one among them is a task manager application. The apps may vary depending on what your needs are. So always use a few and decide which app suits you better and is easy for your purpose.
Below are five free apps that can help you organize and manage your tasks better. The apps are in random order, and you can start with any of them.
Todoist: to-do list & planner
Todoist is one of the most famous task planner apps. You can use the app for daily reminders, habit tracking, project management, etc. The USP for this app is the usage of natural language recognition.
