    Great List! Technology is so advanced that we can do almost anything from anywhere we want, to increase productivity. There are many apps are available for almost anything we want to do and many of them are available are free.

    Likewise for time management, Personally I use Replicon software ( )! I’ve used quite some applications for the various tasks including invoicing, time tracking, and so on. But this application came with the promise that I would be able to handle all the tasks using it.
