Do you envy those co-workers who seem to glide effortlessly through the workday? Then you absolutely have to check out this list of apps, gadgets and websites from Inc.
1. Lumo Lift
Posture still matters! This magnetic sticker attaches to your clothing and syncs with an iOS app to alert you whenever you start slouching in your seat. Lumo Lift can also track its wearer’s posture, calories burned and distance walked, and then transmit that data to your phone.
Unless you’re just thrilled with Google’s free Priority Inbox feature (and I know a lot of people who are not), this isn’t for you. Inky is kind of like Unroll.me meets SaneBox: it’s a desktop and mobile-based email client that organizes email messages into categories like social, subscriptions, personal, and daily deals. There are also lots of other fun features that make email a lot less annoying in general.
A former co-worker swears by this one: Canva is a free drag-and-drop design tool that’s perfect for creating posters and infographics, resizing images for blog posts and adding backgrounds. Users are required to create an account, and some features are pay-only, but it beats shelling out hundreds of dollars for Photoshop.
I hate having to create a new account for everything, but at this point it’s pretty much unavoidable. One of the worst aspects of this new reality we live in is password and username management; if you’re lazy about it, you could open yourself up to a world of security issues, but doing it right isn’t scalable either. Enter Dashlane, a digital password vault that will generate and store unique passwords for each account and serve you the proper login credentials when you need to log in. Similar to Password Box, free and paid versions are available.
5. Google Voice
There are just some people that you absolutely do not want to have your number, but need a way of contacting you anyway. Voice will assign you a unique phone number that will ring to your regular phone. If they call the number, you can pick up or send the caller straight to voicemail.
