- Microsoft Office Mobile (iOS and Android)

- IFTTT (iOS and Android)
IFTTT (If This Then That) is simple. It works by automating tasks called ‘recipes’. A recipe works by two variables, if ‘X’ then ‘X’. An example would be, if I update my Facebook profile picture, then change my Twitter profile picture too. There are thousands of premade recipes available within the app, you will most definitely find one to suit your needs – or you can create your own!
- SwiftKey (iOS and Android)
This app is an alternative keyboard for your phone. It adapts to the way you type, learning your typing habits and predicting what you might say next.
It is very intuitive and can learn from your typing habits within other applications. Just link your Facebook, Gmail or Twitter and it will instantly begin learning more about the way you type.
- Do (iOS and Android)
Any.Do is powerful ways you can keep on top of tasks, letting you manage important activities. You can split different tasks into various environments, for example, you can have an ‘Office’ section, for tasks you need to complete at the office, or a ‘Home’ section – for what you need to complete away from work.
You can also link it to your Chrome browser, letting you see your to-do list from you computer!
- Chrome Remote Desktop (Android)
If you are not having a great time with Microsoft Office Mobile, Chrome Remote Desktop is your answer. You can get full functionality of your desktop computer from your mobile device!
That’s right, not only can you edit your documents – you can save them on your desktop, open up Outlook and send it to someone.
