Default Productivity Apps, Extensions, Etc.

What are some of your favorites?

So far, mine are:

Stay Focused (for Chrome users only) ~ Gives me a time limit for time-wasting sites. After my time is spent, I'm blocked from accessing them.

Writer or Die (thanks VintageMama!) ~ Gives me a strict time limit to complete work. I invested in the desktop version and am very pleased with the boost its given me.

Google's timer ~ A desktop app added to my sidebar gadgets. I use it to countdown time when I'm not using Write or Die. I switched to this after my timer from BTT Software (I think) stopped working. It's not a perfect replacement of my former favorite, but it does the job.

I just switched phones, but I used to use Docs to Go on my Blackberry to type rough drafts on the fly. There may be an app for Android, but I haven't seen it yet.

What are some of your favorites?

I used to use Write or Die all the time. After the way today has gone (with one darned article... don't get me started...), I think I'll have to pull it back up!

Yes, it's a great app!

Since so many of us use it, it sounds like we need to get some word wars going. I've never done one, but I'm looking forward to it.

Have to run because my 'Stay Focused' time is ticking (love that extension, too)!
