We could all use more time in our day.  While we’re all limited to 24 hours, there are plenty of tools to squeeze the most out of our time.  These 10 tools are some of my favorite for a variety of applications.  Hopefully they can serve you just as well!



  •  Evernote – The perfect browser application to capture all things digital and access them from any device.  Official Description: From saving thoughts and ideas to preserving experiences to working efficiently with others, Evernote’s collection of apps make it easy to stay organized and productive.


  •  Sparrow – Acquired by Google, this is a fantastic email application.  Superior user experience sets this one apart from the rest.


  •  RescueTime – Tracks all activity on your computer, and provides you reports on where your time is spent and what sites you frequent.  OD:A personal-analytics service that shows you how you spend your time & provides tools to help you be more productive.


  • 8tracks.com – 8tracks is the attractive sibling of Pandora.  Users create mixes based on moods, genres, or specific artists.  I’ve found way better music through 8tracks than ever through Pandora.  Try it for yourself.

  •  Boomerang for Gmail – Boomerang is a great application to schedule emails, follow-up, and reminders.

  •  Page Ruler – The third Chrome extension of the list, I use this one all the time.  Page Ruler measures the dimensions of any spacing or images on a webpage.  A fabulous tool for web development.

  •   Tweetdeck – While Hootsuite is the quite popular alternative, I’m quite partial to Tweetdeck.  The Twitter application updates in realtime, and enables users to search and schedule updates.


  •   WiseStamp – Emails signatures aren’t necessary a thrilling thing, but clean design can make a great impression.  WiseStamp offers a lot of creative freedom for customizing your signature.
