We’re all hunting for ways to be more productive. While some tech tools and upgrades can help us speed up our workflows, some can sadly confuse us or even slow us down. Today, we’re separating the useless from the useful, and sharing five great apps for getting more done in the most efficient way possible.

MarginNote Pro for Mac

MarginNote Pro makes organized note-taking easy for Mac users. Easily highlight text, write down notes, insert multimedia audio and video, and outline study points as you go about your work. You’ll organize your notes and absorb the information along the way.
