    Also, the email app XonoMail was released this month. It sorts your email automatically by category, and is pretty handy for staying organized. It’s still in beta, but worth checking out for sure.

    Another app that I recommend to have a look is Beesy: I saw a lot of articles that discusses about this app as Time Management Magazine, AppStorm, Evernote.. which then makes it more interesting. I adopted this app a few months ago and now I am very satisfied in terms of productivity, we can see the difference.
