Tablet PCs like the iPad, the new Windows tablets, or even the Kindle Fire can keep work and productivity right at your fingertips for as long as you can avoid the distractions.
1) To Do Apps
Basic “To do” tablet PC apps are great for jotting down things that you suddenly remember that you have to do. How many times have you been scrambling for a piece of paper and a pen or pencil and found none? Or if you did write it down, you then forgot where you put it considering the other pieces of paper you have with notes?
“To do” apps allow you to log what you need to remember to do, so you can later put it in another category if you need to or place information in your calendar. Whatever the need, having a “to do” app will also help you balance your work and home life. No more forgetting to pick up the milk and finish that 40 page report that needs to be done by the end of the week.
2) Project Apps
If you have a major project that you are planning or involved in at work or with your family, there are great tablet PC apps that only track the progress of a project. There are different project apps, but most of them allow you to track different aspects of the project and also remind you of the deadlines that are coming up.
If you are juggling multiple projects, there are also apps where you can clearly view on the tablet PC and arrange in the priorities that certain things need to happen. By keeping you on track, these apps keep you productive every day.
Viewing your calendar on a tablet PC is almost like viewing it on one of those weekly or monthly calendars that you write in with pencil, because there are always changes. With the tablet PC calendar, you can view a day, week, or month easily to see how your time is being schedule and easily change items with a touch of your finger.
When you can easily see what is going on in your schedule, it is easy for you to see when you have available time to schedule meetings, team planning, or even doctor appointments for you and your family. You can categorize business separate from your home schedule, and it will always be easy to review no matter where you are.
Another great feature of the calendar tablet PC app is that you can set a few reminders to keep you abreast of what is coming up in the future, up to the day of the event. There will be no more forgetting of important meetings or your personal responsibilities at home. Life gets busy, and sometimes we need a little extra help to see us through.
