15 Productivity Tools and Apps to Help You Fight Procrastination

Dec 15, 2020   17 Min Read
How do you become a productivity wizard? Is there a secret formula? Sadly, no, but there are productivity tools that can help you out.

We live in an age where everything is designed to distract us from tasks at hand. Whether it’s a quick look at your phone or a new YouTube video, you will get distracted multiple times per day and lose precious hours during which you could’ve got a lot of things done.

And we mean—a lot.

In fact, the average employee is interrupted from their work 56 times a day.

Add to the mix different things happening in your personal life or stress (which is… always), and what you end up with are productivity levels that no one in their right mind would envy.

And yet, there are people out there who get 10 tasks done in under an hour. People who don’t let anything distract them while they’re working. People who are so perfectly organized that their work (or private life) never suffers.

How do they do it? 

It’s simple: consistent effort and planning.

There’s no magic trick that will make you more productive. A fairy godmother won’t come down and bless you with the ability to stop procrastinating once and for all.

No, sadly, it’s all up to you.

… But that doesn’t mean that you can’t get a helping hand from your friendly neighbourhood productivity tools and apps

The right productivity software will ensure that you dedicate enough time to the projects and tasks you’re working on, keep distractions to a minimum, and simply: get more done

And—luckily for everyone—in today’s post, we’ll be going over some of the best productivity tools to keep an eye out on in 2021, their main features, as well as prices so that you can get a better idea of what’s best for you and your team.

Now, let’s get crackin’. 

Top 15 Productivity Apps and Tools to Start Using ASAP

1. Infinity — A Productivity Tool for Teams of All Sizes

Infinity Productivity Tool

Infinity is an all-in-one, fully customizable project management tool that doubles as a productivity software. How so? As the team likes to put it, “You can achieve anything when you’re organized”, meaning that you’ll definitely get more done and become more productive. 

The great thing about Infinity is that you can start with something as simple as a checklist, then customize your workspace to handle bigger, more complex operations when needed. 

From content calendars and sales CRMs, to product development and even personal habit trackers, you can create any type of process you need within Infinity, and then use different filters to arrange and display the data you need. You can also view your items in multiple ways: as calendars, columns, lists, Kanban boards, and Gantt charts. 

“It's a great productivity tool. It's very flexible and the team is wonderful.” - Michał Aleksander Nowakowski

2. Zapier — An Online Productivity Tool for Automated Workflows

Zapier Productivity Tool

Zapier is a productivity app that allows you to automate repetitive tasks. For example, you can set up a “Zap” to automatically send you SMS notifications when you receive emails only from senders that you’ve tagged as important. This frees you from having to manually check your email each time, and possibly get distracted by non-work related messages. 

If you want to create a Zap for sending automated birthday and holiday greetings, you can definitely do that, too!

These are just a few examples of what you can do with Zapier, but don’t think that there’s not more to this cool app. In fact, Zapier lets you connect over 2,000 applications, so you can make a Zap for almost anything—from customer feedback, time tracking, e-commerce apps, to invoicing, and beyond. Once you’ve created a Zap, this program will continue to run automatically unless you turn it off. 

Even now, this productivity software continues to add apps and Zaps to its library, which means there is almost no limit to the amount of workflows and processes you can automate. 

Key Features

  • Process Mapping & Automation
  • Routine Task Automation
  • Workflow Automation
  • Customizable Workflows
  • Triggered Actions
  • Trigger Dependencies
  • Action Dependencies
  • Create Custom Apps 
  • Third-Party App Integrations
  • Multiple Accounts Management


Zapier offers a free plan which allows you to create up to 100 tasks (Zaps) per month. Zapier’s first paid plan (Starter) costs 17.49 per month when billed annually. There are five plans in total you can choose from.

3. Forest — A Unique Productivity App That Helps You Stay Focused

Forest Productivity Tool

Among countless apps for productivity out there, Forest is definitely one with a unique twist. Namely, it lets you save trees while keeping you focused on your tasks.

At first glance, the app functions like a Pomodoro timer, enabling the user to go on concentrated sprints. From here, the app uses a unique mechanism to keep its users focused instead of eventually succumbing to distractions. 

First, for every focused sprint you complete, you can grow plants in the app’s virtual forest. Hence, the more productive you are, the more plants your virtual forest will have. If you open a banned app during a focused sprint, your plant will die. To up the ante, you’ll actually see images of your plants flourish as you keep your focus timer going. And if you fail, you’ll also see your plants wilt.

This productivity software offers in-app purchases, such as different plant species (mostly fictional and artistic) that you can either buy with real cash or save up for using the app’s virtual coins (the reward you get for completing focused sprints).

As an additional incentive—and perhaps its most noteworthy feature—you can convert your virtual coins into credits that you can use to plant real trees. The developers of the app are partnered with various environmental groups in Africa, and they release updates of their tree planting work, so you’ll get to see where your contribution goes.

Key Features 

  • Screen Time Tracker
  • Focused Time Distribution Tracker
  • Multi-device Syncing
  • Automatic Data Syncing
  • Customizable Whitelist
  • Customizable Tags
  • Categorizable Tags
  • Various Background Noise
  • Notification & Alerts
  • Forest Timeline (Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly)

  • Available for iOS and Android Devices 


Forest is free to use, but has an optional Pro version which starts at $1.99.

Todoist Productivity Tool

Todoist is a productivity tool with a clean, straightforward interface. It’s actually like Google Tasks, Google Calendar, and Notion in one.

At first glance, Todoist’s checklist and task hierarchy structure is reminiscent of Google Tasks, while its colors and calendar look like a page out of Google Calendar’s own interface. Meanwhile, the capability to organize nested notes and add icons will remind you of Notion.

However, this is where similarities end, as Todoist has some unique features of its own. Aside from the essential scheduling, tags, labeling, and color coding features, Todoist uses something called “Todoist Karma”. For every task you complete and productivity streaks that you maintain, this productivity software awards you with points that you can use to level up your karma.

Habitica Productivity Tool

Similar to Forest, Habitica is without a doubt one of the more creative productivity apps on this list, and you’ll see why in a moment.

For starters, this app comes with the essentials: lists, boards, kanban views, recurring tasks, and more. But apart from these, Habitica has something that most of the other apps on this list don't have: overt gamification.

Set in a video game environment, each user has a character that completes tasks as “quests,” which then yields rewards that allow them to “level up” their character and buy items.

They can also compete or band together with their friends to explore the variety of character changes they can make when leveling up, and items they can collect. This makes Habitica a colorful, creative productivity tool that could make accomplishing tasks more fun and even a little addictive. 

Although meant for mobile phones, you can use Habitica in its web version, as well.

  • Web & Mobile Ready

Habitica’s first plan costs $4.99 per month, but you can also get it by paying $14.99 every three months, $29.99 every six months, or $47.99 every year. Keep in mind that prices may vary by location. There’s also a free plan available if you want to try it out first.

12. Microsoft To Do — A Simple Productivity App by Microsoft 

Microsoft To Do Productivity Tool

Microsoft To Do is a free app that you can use to manage tasks and monitor productivity.

This is one of the business productivity tools that’s pretty straightforward, and acts as a great alternative for users that crave a clean, simple interface that does a few things well versus other apps with plenty of clutter and a steep learning curve.

What you get is a simple task list, icons, tags, and labels to help you organize, and seamless integration with other apps that you use. If your team uses Microsoft Office for your work, then this productivity software should work even better with your suite.

Like Microsoft To Do’s relationship with its own suite, Google Tasks gives you easy integration with its own Google Suite of apps. The app comes with Gmail, so it’s quick and easy for you to flag emails and turn them into tasks. You can also set deadlines and reminders, then integrate them with your Google Calendar. 

Google Tasks is also accessible in the Google Docs interface, so if you’re writing an article or researching a project, you can track any other ideas that you get along the way, and set a reminder to follow through. All of these can sync seamlessly across multiple devices.

This productivity tool is incredibly simple to use, and you can create main lists, add tasks, and subtasks. However, it is worth mentioning that it’s not color-coded, does not have tags or labeling, and you can’t collaborate live with your team.

  • Deadline Setting
  • Google Suite Integration
  • Capture Tasks from Gmail
  • Automatic Sync of Calendar Reminders
