Speechnotes – voice type your notes

There is something cool about dictating notes to an assistant that it makes people feel powerful.  Speechnotes really takes notes while you speak to the app. Apart from the lighter side of voice typing, it is super productive. It’s quite accurate and works offline as well.  Dictating this short paragraph was quite natural, though editing sentences and phrases still requires the keyboard. Really hard to find flaws and does get a full thumbs up from us, now if we could just get the corner office.

SimpleMind – the art of mind mapping

The mind is a curious place with thoughts on everything that makes us what we are. The idea of mind mapping is to note down important ones and keep adding related ideas, tasks, links and just about any material to it. Mastering mind maps is less of a science and more of an art that is built up over experience.

SimplyMind brings mind mapping to mobile phones. Nothing could be more convenient than capturing thoughts as they occur.

Do large screen phones mean more productivity?

We’ve been small screen fans for ages until one of us started commuting longer distances on public transport.

Though buses and trains take the traffic stress out of your life we are left with a small void of time to fill with something other than commute noise and radio chatter. Its the perfect time to reflect on the day and priorities, or take some time to chalk out  an outline for your next blog post.

If you happen to be serious enough you can also manage reviewing/reading documents, and even attend virtual meetings on the go. That’s what road warriors are all about.
