productivityweek

We’re always looking for new ideas around here, and when the concept of doing an entire week on one topic came up, we decided to give it a go. I mean, everyone loves productivity apps, right? So why not go really in depth with the topic and see what happens?

But now we want to know what you think. Did you like productivity week? If so, would you like to see other themed weeks like Game Week, Lifestyle Week or anything else? Let us know in the poll to the right, and give us some specifics in the comments. Thanks!

Well, it’s been a full week here at iPhone.AppStorm, and it’s all been about productivity, getting things done and generally making yourself a more efficient person. It’s been so hectic that maybe you missed out on something, or possibly you haven’t had time to catch up on all the big news. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered. Check out all the details after the break.

One of the great things I love about my iPhone is the ability to stay organized. When trying to coordinate schedules between myself and my wife, it’s so crucial that we know what is going on throughout each day. And now with a baby, it is that much more important that we work together efficiently.

The iPhone calendar app is okay — it gets the job done — but like anything else, I always try to see if I can find something different; something that will do the job just a little bit better. Week Calendar does that and more. It packs a ton of features into the calendar and I honestly believe this could replace the official calendar app. Let’s get into it more after the break.

The Apple iWork suite is a popular purchase for Mac buyers, and once the iPad versions came out, they became almost standard buys. But it wasn’t until relatively recently that it became available for the iPhone, and now all Apple platforms have the ability to manipulate and edit documents on the go.

In our second of this three-series installment, we’re going to take a look at Numbers, the spreadsheet application that’s part of the iWork suite. Sure, you can make spreadsheets on your iPhone, but do you really want to? We’ll take a look at the app and how it can work into your daily workflow after the jump.

There’s no doubt that going paperless increases productivity: paperless communication is instant, hassle-free, cheap and less wasteful. Much of the world, however, still relies on paper documents to relay important information. How can you, the forward-thinking iPhone user, integrate all this paper into your digital records? Many developers have created apps to help digitize paper documents into PDF files by scanning them with your iPhone’s built-in camera, without requiring you to take a perfect picture from a straight angle.

In this round-up, we’re putting five popular iPhone scanning applications to the test, comparing their features and how they all handle processing the same image. Find out which apps come out on top after the jump!

By far, the standard by which most GTD systems are measured against is the original book, Getting Things Done by David Allen. Not only did Allen outline how exactly to get your life on track, but he also sparked a revolution, and many of the apps mentioned this week follow that very system. OmniFocus for iPhone is one of those apps.

There are varying levels of GTD apps, from the very basic to the hardcore, and OmniFocus for iPhone falls into the latter category. Sure, you could buy another GTD app, but if you want one that really goes above and beyond, you should look at OmniFocus. In fact, why don’t you read more about it after the break.

Getting organized isn’t always an easy thing to do, but once you’ve decided to take that plunge, you’ll probably want to find an app that makes your life easier. But do a quick search for “To do” in iTunes, and you’re likely to lose yourself for a few hours in the results. How do you know what to choose for what you need?

Well, there are a few ways to do it, and it might even involve a little bit of experimentation. But if you follow a few basic steps you’ll be able to find one that works for you, and gets you productive in no time.

A key practice that can lead to better productivity is getting the things in your head out into the physical — or digital — world. While there’s no shortage of task managers out there to help you with those little nagging things that you need to get done, there’s a large market for other things that can be distracting as well. Desire aims to help you stop worrying about how much money you’ve saved up for a specific item, whether or not you can afford something, or how much longer you need to wait before you can get going on another project.

So does it work? Read on past the break and find out!

Some of the editors here on the AppStorm network have recently taken to using 37signals’ project management web app Basecamp. If you’ve never used Basecamp before, I highly recommend you check it out. It’s a really great service for organizing multiple team members and collaborating on projects together, and I’m really enjoying using it so far.

However, I immediately noticed two things that I wanted as part of my Basecamp experience. The first thing is a native Mac client, so I didn’t have to be logged into the web app all day long. The second thing I was looking for, for which I have found a very satisfying solution, is the ability to check up on my Basecamp projects on my phone.

This is where Headquarters comes in. Headquarters is a beautifully designed third-party iPhone app designed to keep you connected to your projects when you’re away from your computer. Want more info? Find it after the jump.

Weave is an unusual and cool task management app. It appeared on the App Store recently, and being free, there’s no excuse not to try it. It combines tasks, projects, money and time tracking all in a single application, making it easy to manage tasks and keep up with the time you use and money you spend (or earn). Let’s get into it after the break.
