I like to think of myself as a productivist but I know I’m not. I am just a junkie for productivity apps. I enjoy trying and using different productivity apps, see Apps and me.
This is how I use my apps to make me seem productive.
This is where I keep my to-do lists where the tasks are not time sensitive. I like Taskpaper because I can enter my lists as plain texts but still enjoy having tags on my .txt files. I use Taskpaper on both my Mac and my iOS devices. I had tried mixing my taskpaper txt files with my other regular notes using NValt but it wasn’t a happy mix for Nvalt. I gave up trying to fix it and kept the files seperate.
I enter all my time sensitive tasks as well as my recurring bills into Due. I have Due only on my iPhone 5. Due for Mac is on my wishlist. I’ll be getting it soon.
This is where I store all my notes and wishlists on the Mac. I keep them as plain text files to keep the file sizes small on my Mac. The notes are synced to my iOS devices using Dropbox.
The place all my notes and lists reside. I used to use Scotty to transfer my photos taken using my iPhone 5 to my Mac but now I just rely on Dropbox. Dropbox is the central node of my system. Nothing works without it.
I use Soulver on my Mac and iOS devices as my budgeting app. I enter my transaction into Soulver and it churns out what’s left of my budget at the bottom of the document. It’s a sad number every single time.
For lightning fast notes capture, I use Drafts. Any temporary notes also reside here. I keep some commonly typed texts in Drafts. It makes for a great launchpad to many other apps. It’s kind of like a poor man’s TextExpander
I keep changing and switching how I use my apps constantly. My system works well as it is but I just can’t help tinkering. If you are at all curious about the apps I mentioned above, just check them out.
