The Three Free Utilities that Increase Productivity series recently concluded. To recap, in the first part, I talked about LastPass and the need for having a great password manager that protects your passwords and other sensitive information in an encrypted file.

In part two, I talked about the outstanding note taking application Evernote. Evernote is loaded with features including the ability to capture notes with a camera, as a voice memo, or as text. It also uses OCR technology to scan images for text in order to make them searchable. Evernote works everywhere and supports multiple platforms. It's an outstanding tool to have in your productivity toolbox.

In the final installment, I discussed Workflowy, a very robust note taking / list making app that allows users to jot down thoughts, ideas, to dos, notes, etc. in a bulleted format quickly and easily.

The beauty about all three of these programs is that they have two user service options: A free option which for most people will be more than sufficient; or an upgraded “pro” option containing  advanced features that are well worth the price. In addition, their monthly or annual prices aren't going to break the bank.

If you're looking for tools that are going to maximize your productivity, you can't go wrong with any or all of these options.
