In recent times, we’ve started working harder to achieve our goals. Be it in any field, everyone is hustling for that promotion or that good quarter or for that A grade and whatsoever their reason is. But with technology impacting our lives completely and with all the great content which is available on the web, it becomes difficult to focus and channel all our energy in one direction. So in order to reach your goals on time and to maintain that hustle life, we’ve compiled 30 great productivity apps that will help you in that hustle life.

1. Tide-

Music is an amazing way to express your emotions. Music has been around for centuries and it has also been used as a tool to help people sleep in the form of a lullaby or to help them focus like tribal music. Tide works in a similar way and allows users to either focus, sleep or breathe with 3 of its modes with these names. It also boosts productivity as the music played in these modes helps the user stay calm and helps them to focus in a better way. The other 2 modes, breathe and sleep can be used to help user meditate and sleep for longer than usual duration. I have personally used this app and it has helped me maintain a healthy sleeping pattern.

2. Texpand-

Let’s just agree with the fact that-
We all have a love and hate relationship with emails. Emails play such a significant role in our lives most of us check our emails first thing in the morning. Constantly replying to a particular set of emails which basically require the same revert can be irritating. Texpand is here to save the day. It is a free app that allows users to create abbreviations for phrases or a particular set of reply. For example- If you share your social media handles a lot, you can easily set up an abbreviation for the same using texpand. So next time when you have to share that piece of information, all you need to do is type in that abbreviation and a pop up will show up and you’ll easily be able to send that piece of information.

It allows users to set a time frame in which the app will function and during that time, the app won’t let you launch any of your phone’s app. It instantly kills the app that you might try to launch and also displays funny and quirky replies if you persist. It also lets users block incoming calls and messages.

It is a great app to help you cut your on-phone time and will definitely boost your productivity.
