As most app enthusiasts will tell you, those pint sized programs are not just for crushing candy or slicing up fruit.
And despite the image above they're not just for mobile devices either. Apps can be plugged into your browser, and installed on your laptop.
The world of apps is jam packed with innovative, time saving, life saving methods for keeping you organized and productive.
And what's the harm in crushing a little candy in the enormous amount of time you've saved?
My top apps are
Carrot, because it punishes you for procrastinating with hilarious put downs.
Evernote, because it's a classic and continues to be so useful.
Zen Day, beacuse of the 3d visualization.
Swizzle is no longer around but there are plenty of alternatives for inbox management available.
