Nozbe – Get More Work Done

Nozbe is a productivity app built for busy professionals. Users can collaborate on projects with friends or colleagues without relying on email, and they can sync their task lists across multiple devices and platforms, even without an Internet connection.

Once you’ve logged in to your Nozbe account, you can start adding tasks and organizing them into manageable “projects.” Start setting deadlines, then click the check box next to each task as you make your way down the list. You can view your scheduled tasks in a calendar, or as a list that’s been prioritized automatically. You can also set up “contexts” (like computer, home, or office) to remind yourself when would be the best time to work on certain tasks. Nozbe’s productivity system is completely customizable, which means you can set it up to fit your personal needs, however uncommon they may be.

Communicate with colleagues through the Nozbe system by adding comments alongside specific tasks, photos, checklists, or documents. Nozbe will send you an email digest showing everything your team has been working on. The platform functions on any platform, even when you’re working in offline mode. It also connects with a handful of the most popular business apps, including Google Calendar, Dropbox, Evernote, and Twitter.

Practical Uses:

  • Accomplish more tasks each day
  • Work together with colleagues on a major project
  • Leave comments alongside an assignment you’ve just given your intern
  • Remember important deadlines by syncing Nozbe to your online calendar

Insider Tips:

  • Add tasks through Twitter by sending a DM to Nozbe
  • Nozbe offers mobile apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android users
  • Connect Google Calendar to your Nozbe account
  • All of Nozbe’s native apps work in offline mode
