I’m a productivity fanatic. I enjoy wasting my life away reading and researching ways to make my life more efficient. Productivity was the first category of apps I browsed into when the iPad apps became available in the app store.
These are the apps I highly recommend you try out first if you’re a productivity pornstar too.
