If you’re like most people, you’re always on the hunt for the perfect app—the one that does everything. The one that will finally replace all your other apps that do … well, almost everything.
This week on Monday Productivity Pointers, I’m here to take the pressure off. It’s perfectly OK to use multiple apps that do almost the same things. I’m going to show you how I use three apps to manage my daily to-dos.

It’s easy to post pictures on social networks, but sometimes we’re looking at them from such small screens that it’s easy to miss tiny details that can compromise your privacy—or worse, someone else’s.

In many online calendar apps, such as Google Calendar and Outlook.com, you can get a daily email of all your appointments for the day. It’s one email, and it contains a digest view of your entire day.

A long time ago in Monday Productivity Pointers, I posted a video about a fantastic remote desktop connection app called Crossloop. It was fast, it was easy, and there was absolutely nothing not to love about it. Using a desktop PC, Mac, or tablet, you could easily connect to someone else’s computer and either view it or remote control it.
A few months ago, the makers of Crossloop shut off the service. But today on Monday Productivity Pointers, I bring you a suitable alternative called join.me.
