Leave the road rage behind. Waze has created a local community of drivers that just want to get from point A to point B without ripping their hair out. Type in your destination address and drive with the app open. Drivers can contribute traffic, accident, construction or other road data. Online map editors keep the map as up to date as possible.

Acrobat and PDF have come together to create Document Cloud. It communicates with online services so you can sign and send documents on any device. You can also store and track the progress of your documents. Prepare estimates, contracts, agreements, and other documents to be legally e-signed in a web browser or your favourite business application, then point and click.

There is a good chance you already have this app, but just in case you don’t…Evernote is an all-in-one type app that stores photos, webpages, notes, PDFs, audio clips and to-do lists. Also, the notebook feature can be viewed on your desktop or on the Web.

Combine your to-do list and calendar with this app and watch it learn your habits. Timeful will smartly suggest ways to build new productivity habits while checking things off of your list.

These are all good places to keep virtually anything all in one place and can easily be collaborated on and accessed. Store your photos, documents, presentations, etc. in one of these simple to use apps.

Email doesn’t have to be a big deal. Unroll.Me will allow you to unsubscribe easily from emails that are cluttering your inbox while Inky keeps them all organized.
