These days, smartphones rarely leave our pockets or hands. We take them everywhere we go and with the development of 4g capabilities and powerful processing, they can serve as an amazing productivity tool. From calendars and scheduling, note-taking and reminders, to mobile office suites, smartphones have slowly morphed into personal assistants. Below are 8 of our favorite mobile productivity apps:
Evernote Evernote, simply put, is note heaven. You can store notes with voicemails, recordings, images, and website links. Once you label your notes, you can turn them into reminders and share them. It's a great way to stay organized, not to mention that it syncs up all of your devices, so no matter if you're on your iPad, smart phone, or laptop, all of your information will be in the same place.
Dragon Dictation Imagine Dragon Dictation as a personal assistant following you around and typing up everything you say.

No time is wasted transcribing notes.
