Productivity apps extend the capabilities of our mobile phones. Many such new apps are released every month and here are five such apps which arrived in the month of November.
The selected apps deal with tasks management, tracking notifications, monitoring the device itself, and then there is one which works with meetings.
It works as an extension of the Evernote note taking app, letting users access the Evernote features right from their phone’s home screen. Using this app, one can store notes on the SD cards of the phone.
