Writing this article I am reminded about two years ago when I was starting out in the tech startup scene. My partners and I had to be super frugal so we always worked agile and at times the office was our flat , a local coffee shop , library and etc.The only tools we had were our laptops, phones and headphones to isolate ourselves from the noises of the outer world. At time we would be sitting next to each other but chatting on Slack. Needless to say, we were 100% dependent on technology to be able to work from anywhere after all we were a tech company.

Technology sometimes failed uthough. There’s no Internet. The computer freezes up. The phone is dead.

So from my experience I’ve selected a list of really useful apps that will help you stay connected, productive, and above all relaxed.

DOCUMENTS

  1. Docady
    Snap a photo of all the important documents you don’t want to carry around. The app will help you arrange the paperwork into relevant categories and safely store everything you might need on your travels.

  2. PandaDoc
    There’s no need to send your proposals or contracts via snail mail. You can easily create, share, and sign documents with legally binding electronic signature software.

  3. Docracy
    There’s also no rush to look for a lawyer every time you need a simple contract. Use this amazing open database of legal documents instead.

SECURITY

  1. CrashPlan
    Protect your data and back up all your valuable files (music, photos, documents) to an external drive or cloud. You can access them from anywhere, at any time.

  2. Hola
    In some countries, your popular websites (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube…) may be blocked. For such cases, it’s good to have a solid VPN installed before you cross the borders, so you can browse the Internet without censorship.

PRODUCTIVITY

  1. Sunrise
    Plan your days with a calendar that connects to your favorite apps, including Facebook, Evernote, or Trello.

  2. Trello
    Keep track of your daily tasks and collaborate with your team on any project with this free and simple board-like app. No more endless email threads or missed deadlines.

  3. Wunderlist
    Organize your to-dos, set due dates, and reminders. You can also share your lists with other people and possibly assign the tasks to someone else.

  4. Solo
    If you work as a freelancer, most project management apps probably don’t address your specific needs. Solo will not only help you get stuff done, it will also assist with monitoring your performance, tracking your time and expenses, generating invoices, or managing clients.

  5. WudaTime
    Easily track the time you spend on individual tasks with the help of this free browser-based tool.

  6. Gorgias
    Save some minutes every time you send an email. This app will help you create nifty templates and shortcuts so you fly through your inbox super fast.

DISCIPLINE

  1. Momentum
    Self-discipline is the main challenge when being your own boss. This app will help you create new habits, track your daily progress, and achieve your goals.

  2. Freedom
    Block distracting websites and apps to skyrocket your productivity.

COMMUNICATION

  1. ClearChat
    Stay connected with your remote coworkers via an encrypted team chat app. Your conversations and files will be read only by the intended recipients.

  2. Talky
    Those who prefer to speak face-to-face can complement chatting with team video calls. No downloads, signup, or payment required.

PEOPLE

  1. Clarity
    Schedule a call with an experienced entrepreneur and get expert advice on your business no matter where in the world you are.

  2. Meetup
    Meet new people at events organized by local communities all over the globe.

TRAVEL

  1. Entrain
    Those who often suffer from jet lags will make good use of this free app. It will tell you when to seek dark or light to adjust faster to new time zones.

  2. PackPoint
    This smart packing list app will check the weather, note the length of your stay, and consider the purpose of your trip, so you don’t forget anything important.

AND MORE

  1. Dollarbird
    Control your budget on your smartphone. See how much you’ve spent, plan your future expenditures, and observe your spending habits.

  2. Silvrback
    Don’t waste your time setting up a new website. Capture your adventures in a lean, distraction-free blog.

  3. Canva

#Slack is also a cool tool to use for communication
