As an accounting or finance professional, you’re always looking for ways to make work easier and more enjoyable. Some of those ways may be by better managing your time, improving your public speaking skills, or increasing your productivity.

No matter what your objectives are, these six apps can make your job even better.

Google Keep

If you love brainstorming at random times, creating to-do lists, and writing on Post-Its, this app is for you. Google Keep lets you capture, edit, share, collaborate on your notes and check off items in real-time from any device. Use the app to add notes, lists, pictures, and audio, including notes to self and things to remind your team. Organize your notes with labels and colors, and set reminders in your Google calendar. Sync all of your information across your devices, so it’s always with you.


Use this app to enhance your public speaking skills. Whether practicing for a presentation or wanting to improve your everyday communication, Ummo tracks your pace, word power, clarity, “ums,” “uhs” and other filler words you decide are relevant. The app analyzes your speech as you talk, then generates a report card with the customized metrics you chose.


If you’re responsible for managing a remote team or contract workers, you may want to use this app. Asana helps everyone collaborate on projects, track their work and results, and stay on task. Share conversations, notifications, to-dos, reminders, and requests from start to finish. Organize your tasks as lists or boards. Add due dates, assignees, followers, details, and files to your task. Seamlessly integrate the app with Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, Slack, Evernote, GitHub, WordPress, Jira, Mailchimp, Zendesk, Xendo, and other apps.

Pomodoro Timer

This is an excellent app to use if you’re easily distracted throughout the day. Pomodoro Timer helps with time management. Choose a task, work on it for 25 minutes, and take a five-minute break. The customizable timers that go off at preset intervals increase your productivity, so you accomplish more.


Capture, create, store, and share information to increase productivity with this app. Evernote lets you create and share to-do lists, documents, sketches, memos, photos, or news articles. Use the camera function to scan documents, business cards, and screens.


If you’re looking for data backup protection, file sharing capabilities, and device syncing, this is the app you need. Use Dropbox to store your files in the cloud and access them from anywhere with an internet connection. Sync your computer’s Dropbox folder with your online account for easy access.
