  • 5apps email

The huge boom in apps for mobile devices has probably already improved your personal and social life. But they're not just for fun. You can also boost your productivity, work more efficiently and be a better team member with these fantastic apps.

                           

1. Spark.

Get through your email inbox faster than ever before with this organizational tool. It detects and sorts emails into personal, notification or newsletter groups so you can see at a glance which ones you really need to read. Smart search, pin and archive emails, individually or in batches. Save attachments to your cloud, or emails as PDFs. Send a variety of quick replies such as "Thanks" (or your own words) with one tap. Longer replies can be dictated by simply speaking into your smartphone.

 

2. Wunderlist Pro.

This upgrade of one of the most popular to-do apps lets you collaborate with the team. Share lists, due dates, reminders, comments and notes; or print them out with one click. Add items to Wunderlist straight from your email or the web. And get activity notifications via email as well. You can also organize related lists into folders, so that everyone working on a particular project can find their stuff quickly and easily.

 

3. Workflow.

Automate more than 200 actions for your digital calendar, communications, to-do lists, maps, calculator, photos/music, social media and much more. Create your own apps by combining actions into sequences (workflows), such as finding the nearest drugstore to your hotel and getting directions to it. You can even add these actions as extensions to other apps, such as making a PDF of a web page when you're in Safari.

 

4. Scanner Pro.

Turn your iPhone or iPad into a portable scanner and convert that mountain of paper into PDF or JPEG files. Great for saving handwritten meeting notes, business trip receipts, pages from a book or report someone lent you, or restaurant delivery menus for those lunch-at-your-desk days. Email the files to your team or export them to your cloud or another app.

 

5. Google Docs.

Another great app for the team, Google Docs lets you create, view and edit word, spreadsheet and presentation documents in the cloud, and download them to your device. Changes are saved automatically as you type. More than one person can view and edit a document at the same time so people located far apart can work together.

How Do You Define a Great Leader?
    Countless books and articles have been written on this subject, and everyone has an idea of what qualities they expect to see in a leader. Here's our take.   Vision Great leaders have a very clear idea of what they want and how they're going to accomplish it. And they can clearly explain those goals to anyone and everyone.   Confidence You can recognize great leaders by their air of calm assurance that they'll always be successful in the end, even when things don't go according to plan. This is not the same thing as arrogance, cockiness or boastfulness.   Consistency Great leaders don't waffle back and forth when making decisions, or change their orders from one day to the next. They make up their minds, then make a total commitment to seeing it through.   Responsibility As the sign on President Truman's desk said, "The buck stops here." Great leaders take responsibility for everything under their command, and don't blame others when things aren't going...

How to Tell Your Boss No Without Hurting Your Career
"I don't have time to do that." "I think that's a stupid idea." "It's not my job."   When your boss asks you to do something, these answers may be perfectly true, but they're also guaranteed to make him/her angry.   As the saying goes, you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. Let's see how a more diplomatic wording can get you out of an assignment while staying in your supervisor's good graces.   You really don't have time. The problem with just saying that is the questions it puts in your boss's head: doesn't this employee know how to prioritize tasks or handle a normal workload?   Instead: Ask for help prioritizing your projects. Make sure your boss fully realizes everything you're working on, how long it will take to finish, and what would have to be postponed in order to accomplish the new task.   You don't think it will work. Maybe you've seen this same or similar idea already tried and failed, or it just doesn't seem well thought out....

5 Ways to Make Your Tax Refund Worth Even More
  So what are you going to do with your tax refund? Take a nice vacation? Buy an iPhone X? Before you decide to spend it on something just for fun, check out these uses that will pay you back with even more money in your pocket.   1. Put it in your emergency fund. Sooner or later, your car will break down, your pet will get sick or some other unexpected expense will blindside you. Having an emergency fund in your bank means you won't have to borrow money to pay the mechanic or vet. So, that tax refund will save you all the interest you would have paid on the loan. Plus, it will save you from extra stress in an already stressful situation.   2. Pay off bank and credit card debt. Do you even know how much interest you're paying every month on your car loan, credit card balances or mortgage? Most people are shocked when they find out. Getting those debts paid down ahead of schedule can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars over the life of the loan — all thanks to your...
