It's the beginning of the new 2018 and as every year at this time people are occupied with their New Year’s Resolutions. They are thinking how to accomplish all of their yearly goals in just twelve-month period. In order to deliver on their big and ambitious goals, people will first need to clear their thoughts, get rid of unnecessary busywork and simplify their days.

All of that can be accomplished with the help of various mobile apps. They can help you in organizing your daily life, clearing up your mailboxes, converting your documents, keeping all your documents updated and always accessible and the list goes on.

However, more and more new apps are popping up every day so keeping up with the changes and finding the right ones can be stressful and time-consuming. We decided to create a list of the best and most useful productivity apps so you wouldn't have to experience that stressful never-ending scrawling scenario.

It can convert PDFs to more than 20 most commonly used file formats and vice versa. The app uses industry-leading OCR engine so converting scanned documents shouldn't be a problem.
