Free Tools and Apps for Organizing & Collaborating

The reason we haven’t specified as to what we can organize and collaborate with using these tools is simple – they’re universal tools that will apply to all types of businesses, including freelance, or corporate.

Back in the day, everything was done using a piece of paper and a pen, though seems that the only thing that’s left from those days is taking sticky notes, which even then are starting to fade ever so evidently. So, technology comes to the rescue, and nowadays we have hundreds of reliable apps and tools that we can use to store our life’s worth of text and media.

In this post today, we’re taking a look at some very popular online tools that have become somewhat of a standard for keeping records, tracking things, and generally for educational and learning purposes. You might know some of these by name already, but perhaps some of these will be quite new to you. We hope they will.

1. Trello

It seems as if every single day a new use comes out for Trello, and hands down it must be one of the most praised applications on the web in the past couple of years, having reached out to the people behind this company multiple times myself – I can guarantee that both their product and management are exceptional. Trello is your solution to all things lists, notes and efficiency.

2. Evernote

The workspace for your life’s work   Evernote
Thinking of writing a book? Or maybe you have a lot of research to do, but traditional methods are not cutting it? You can always try to stitch together a few modern applications, or you could just rely on all the amazing features that Evernote provides. These days you get to take it with you on your mobile devices as well, which means you can bring your work with you wherever you are.

3. Dropbox

Just how much data is lost in a single day? It’s probably a statistic that can’t really be measured that easily, but surely a lot of people lose their photos, work stuff and other important documents on daily basis, at which point they realize that it’s time to look for a storage alternative – which is why we believe that Dropbox is one of the best choices you can make as far as secure and insured cloud storage goes.

4. Yanado

Yanado makes your work easier by organizing emails, tasks and events inside your Gmail. One click away. It also improves team collaboration, inside your Gmail. The place you live in. It’s deeply integrated with Gmail and Google apps. It has similar UX as Gmail. It looks like a Gmail. It feels like a Gmail. People live in their email client. Instead of taking them out of it, we bring everything they need to get the job done within their email client.

5. Wetransfer

6.   free  fast  private and easy image and file hosting
If you’re after a more straight forward approach, here is that does the same things as the application above, but focuses strictly on files and photos for rapid transfer.

7. Pocket

Do you know how many websites have you visited in total since the day you began to browse the internet? And how many of those sites would you like to revisit once again, but can’t seem to remember their name? This is where Pocket becomes really handy, as it allows you to efficiently save all your favorite links from within your browser, within a single click of a button.
