THE MOST IMPORTANT TOOLS I WOULD RECOMMEND TO YOU

I’ve decided to create a list of tools I highly recommend. I use all of the listed tools and I will never publish or promote an app/software that I have not used or tested. I have tirelessly searched for different productive/management/life-hacking tools and after years of testing, I can assure you that all the listed apps/software are among the best available on the market.

Disclosure: Please understand that I am using some of the affiliate links, which adds you no cost, but I can earn a small percentage of the sales which I mainly use for Your Inception development. Please buy any of the listed tools only if you are sure you need it. I can promise you that I will only publish the tools that I really use and recommend!

notability

Notability is my favourite note-taking app. For approx. 12$ (6$ for the Mac edition and 6$ for the iPhone + iPad) you get the absolutely powerful combination of a progressive note-taking tool and a smart synchronization between your devices. If you are using a stylus, Notability will serve you better than Evernote.

TRY OUT NOTABILITY

evernote

There is no doubt Evernote is the most advanced app with the most features (web clipping, file adding, images, scanning your handwritten notes, very powerful search system) that works on Mac, iOS, Android, Windows and on the web as well.

TRY OUT EVERNOTE
