A list of my favorite apps on web/desktop/mobile that I’ll keep updated often. If you do not use the same operating systems or browser that I do, it’s still likely that there is either a OS compatible version or an alternative.
– Organize your life! The notes that I needed were always in some notebook that I forgot to bring with me, or in an email that I couldn’t access where I was. This started my journey of consolidating all information I wanted to access immediately into one place.
Google Keep –
Great for taking quick notes, and cross-referencing notes that were taken on my smartphone
BROWSER (CHROME) EXTENSIONS
– easy to use password manager, no more password memorization required
– sticky notes on ANY webpage, super useful for obsessive note takers (like me)
– customize any website with themes/colors; I use it on my frequently used sites like google inbox, keep, evernote, facebook, etc — dark themes look sexy
– ever wish you could save all the tabs you have open for future reference? Well now you can.
– double click a word, and there’s the definition! Easy way to learn words you’ve never seen before, or just want to be 100% sure you’re right on what they mean.
The Great Suspender
– tabs that havent been used in a while get suspended (but not closed) so that your computer doesn’t use up so much memory.
Facebook Chat Privacy
– know those people who complain that you don’t reply to their messages as soon as you read them? Well now they can never know if you’ve seen them or not.
– the desktop app has some functions the web version lacks
– automatically adjusts my screen backlight at night from painful blue light to a warm glow for better sleep; check out the science
– automate stuff on your computer (like things you type up frequently)
– automate mouse functions — a recent instance I used this was when I mass unfollowed people on social media to clean up my newsfeed
Vaporwave Wallpapers – I just think that this aesthetic is sexy; plus some awesome music plays when you’re browsing for new phone wallpapers.
Realizd – it’s hard to realize how often and how long you use your smartphone. If you want to take control of your time, I highly recommend this app — if at the very least just to make you aware of how much you actually use your phone. It helps, I promise.
myFitnessPal – tracking my cals and macros when I need to reach specific goals for my bod
Evernote – Anywhere, anytime!
– automatically adjusts my screen backlight at night from painful blue light to a warm glow for better sleep
– widgets for countdowns to important events
These apps have helped me a lot. I’m always looking for useful apps/extensions or better alternatives, so please let me know what you use!
