We Found the Most Indispensable Productivity Tools You'll Need for the Year
If you’ve ever tried productivity apps Pocket, Evernote, Wunderlist, or LastPass (and if not, you seriously should) and wondered whether you should upgrade to the premium versions—well, we just found your chance to do so for a whole lot less.
Basically, these productivity giants have teamed together to offer upgraded accounts on their services at a discounted cost. The Productivity Pack, as they call it, features one year of premium accounts on Pocket, Evernote, Wunderlist, and LastPass, three months of Dropbox premium, and a three-month digital subscription to The New York Times. Even if you’re only a user of a few of these tools, the pack is a steal—for only $60, you’ll receive over $215 in services. (To put it in perspective, the premium versions of Pocket, Evernote, and Wunderlist typically each run $40-50 per year.)
So, what exactly does the pack get you?
Easily the most valuable of the bunch, you get a year of premium Evernote membership—which should be enough to make even a non-Evernote user convert to the service. You get four times more space to save notes, files, photos, or anything else—plus everything on Evernote (including PDFs) becomes searchable. You get the ability to use the product offline, perfect for those impromptu subway brainstorming sessions. And you get some pretty cool tools that allow you to seamlessly turn your notes into presentations or to annotate PDFs.
You get one year of premium membership on our favorite way to stay up on all that industry reading, Pocket, which includes improved searchability of your articles, meaning you’ll actually be able to find that awesome tip you read about last week.
If you’re a big to-do lister, you’ll be excited about the year of Wunderlist Pro, which allows you to subdivide big tasks, add more helpful attachments to your to-dos, and, um, delegate more.
One year of LastPass premium not only helps you keep your passwords more secure (and keep yourself from forgetting them all the time), but it also allows you to access them from any of your devices (including your phone for when you’re on the go!) and to share them more easily and securely with team members.
And, as a bonus, you’ll get a three month trial of Dropbox Pro to help you store more files in the cloud and an eight week digital subscription to The New York Times—just to help you stay more informed.
It’s a pretty stellar value, especially if you (like me) have been curious about trying the pro versions of some of these products already. Oh, and it’s only available until Friday, so if it’s something you’re interested in, jump on it now!
