For lightening your workload
Google Assistant is much better than Siri at understanding questions and instructions. The AI-powered helper can schedule meetings, set reminders, and take dictation for emails and texts. “It’ll even tell you when to leave for the airport.”
Actions is a sleek new task-management app from the people behind Moleskine notebooks. The $12-a-year service lets you manage to-do lists “as obsessively as you want.” You can choose custom color-coding for your tasks or just type in a casual note and let the app put it on your calendar.
Pocket archives news stories and anything else you might want to read later. Save stories on any device and pull them up on your phone when you’re less busy—even offline.
Buffer frees you from having to freshen your social-media presence throughout the day. Instead, write multiple posts in advance and schedule their appearances.
