    "A handy organization tool, that can integrate well with tools like Siri and incorporate email, calendar and other notes. Only supports Gmail at the moment, which may be a deal breaker for some. It also doesn't handle duplicate tasks, but otherwise very nice. "

    "In general, Wunderlist is one of the best apps in this category - there's a lot to choose from, but they generally differentiate themselves by having a few features that built-in to-do apps might not. This program still does not quite work perfectly with the Apple Watch, though. There's still some sync-related bugs that need to be worked out, it appears. I'd recommend the app in general, but you might have to be more attentive when connecting it to your Watch to ensure that everything is working as intended."

    "MS OneNote syncs across your various devices, which makes it very handy to retrieve notes taken when on the run. With OneNote on my Apple Watch, I can dash off a few thoughts while on the train, and then expand on those thoughts when I'm seated at a computer at home. "

    "Slack is definitely the gold standard when it comes to communicating and organizing coworkers. I don't know that I'd personally categorize it as a productivity app--that makes me think of something like Office or Google Docs--but Google tells me that's perfectly legitimate. "

    "I don't like this at all. It makes you upload an app just to view it and could become more of a pain than it is really worth. Although it might prove to be beneficial in the long run, it really isn't in the beginning. And what if you don't have an Apple phone, you really can't use it or would have to find the comparison on the Android version."
