We all have hectic days. There’s too much to do, not enough time to do it, and far to many people asking you why you haven’t done it yet. Luckily, the internet is here to help. These fantastic tools can track your tasks, remember your notes, and fix annoying problems. So take a break, and let these tools take on some of your load.

TeamworkPM Teamwork Project Manager

If you’ve worked with us, you’ve probably already been introduced to this tool. On Teamwork PM, you can create tasks, remember dates, track hours, communicate with team members, store files, save important notes – and the list goes on. You can also get it as an app for your iPhone or Android.

 

boxBox.net

Box.net is Dropbox for the professional. In addition to file storage, it offers ways to collaborate and share with other users. You can even sync your Box account with your computer, ensuring that you will never lose a file again.

 

driveGoogle Drive

Let’s get it over with; Google is the almighty master of all things internet. Google Drive isn’t just storage, or we would have ditched it for Box.com completely. Neither is it limited to Google Docs, although that part is pretty handy. Google combined those two functions with presentation, spreadsheet, and even drawing tools, tossed in sharing capabilities, and gave it their slick interface. We love it.

 

joinmeJoin.me

Kandra is completely in love with this tool, and for good reason. With join.me, you can set up screen sharing in just a few simple clicks. Viewers don’t need an account to view your screen; they just need the code for your online meeting room. You can also allow visitors to present, give control of your computer to someone else, and so much more.

 

resizeResizeBrowser.com

All the designers and web developers out there will love this fun little tool; never again will you have to guess what your responsive site looks like. Click on the monitor size you want, and it will automatically open a browser window to those specifications. If you don’t see the resolution you need, you can easily enter your own.

 

hootsuiteHootSuite

HootSuite is perfect for the social networker. You can sync all of your social accounts to this site, including LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, and Facebook. Once you’re synced up, you can view content streams, send messages to multiple accounts, and even track user interaction.

 

evernoteEvernote

Do you forget things easily? Evernote is here to save the day. Any notes added via your phone or computer are saved online and easily accessible. You can add videos, audio recordings, and pictures, too. If you’re using a mobile device, Evernote will also remember the location where the note was taken. Once your notes are added, you can organize and share with other users.

 

ifttIFTTT

So you’ve got all of these great new tools, but you need a way to make them work together. Well, If This Then That can do that for you. Set up custom “recipes” to push information from one application to another. Whether you want to save emails on Box.net, or simply send tweets to Facebook, this application can do it all.
