Well, I concede. I’m somewhat of an app junkie. But I’ll blame that on iOS being such a great operating system, partly due to the support for developers to make fantastic apps that makes our lives a little bit easier. With that in mind, let’s look at the best free productivity apps for iPhone in 2020. Enjoy!

Free productivity apps for iPhone

This list of free productivity apps for iPhone highlights only the very best in class based on our (the writers and editors at GeeksModo) experience with the platform and our knowledge of

With that in mind, here are the Best free Productivity Apps for iPhone

1. Shift

Free

Shift is a bit of a niche app when it comes to workout apps for iOS. Basically, the app allows you to quickly switch between listening to podcasts when you’re resting between sets and listening to music while you’re working out. You just need to tap pause and it’ll switch over to the other mode. This app is a fantastic workout companion in the era of working out at home.

The app features one of the cleanest user interface of any app on the market. It’s incredibly easy to tune the timers for each mode, and the main screen simply features a toggle button between podcasts and music. One feature that I truly like about this app is that you can import podcasts from your favorite podcast player. I use Pocket Casts and the process of importing my podcast library was smooth and quick.

If you’re looking to make your workouts just a little more fun and focused, Shift might be the app you’ll ever need.

2. Collect

Collect is a simple idea and image sharing platform created by WeTransfer. It allows users to save images, files, documents, and notes in board-style formats, and then share it with others in an easy way. It’s perfect for collaborative assignments or projects, particularly now that remote work is becoming the order of the day.

IFTTT is one of the most interesting productivity and automating services available today. The service allows users to automate processes and link different apps and services together to customize and automate workflows. An example of an applet (IFTTT’s name for workflows) is one that turns your Philips Hue lights on at your porch when the pizza delivery from Dominoes is on its way.

IFTTT works by the simple formula “if X happens, Y will happen”. You set a trigger (pizza delivery on the way, for example), and then an action that will take place (Philips Hue lights turn on). As of 2020, IFTTT had over 500 connected services, so the supply of possible workflows is massive.

If you’re into smart homes and automation, IFTTT is definitely worth trying.

4. MindNode

Free

I’m a visual learner, so I’m generally a huge fan of mind-mapping software. when it comes to creating really Fantastic mind maps, MindNode is one of the best tool in the market . The free iOS version has limited features compared to the pro version or the macOS app, but it gets the job done if you simply want to quickly create a mind map.

5. Cardhop

$4.99Best Free Productivity Apps for iPhone

This is the only paid app in this list. If you’re looking to replace the native iOS apps with even better, third party apps, you should definitely try Cardhop. It’s a contacts app created by the company behind the fantastic calendar app Fantastical.

Just like Fantastical, Cardhop features a natural language input for search, adding and editing, and interacting with your contacts. The app gives you the ability to sort your contacts using groups (seriously, I don’t understand why Apple removed the group function for the iOS Contacts app!?) and Smart Groups. With Smart Groups, you can automatically group your contacts based on criteria that suits your needs, like contacts from a specific company or contacts that don’t have a listed birthday.

Cardhop syncs with your iCloud contacts, so you don’t have to manually transfer your previously saved contacts to Cardhop. It’s the app
Apple
should’ve made, but choose not to.
