Apps for startups are very useful (and can even be crucial) for new companies.

As a founder of a startup, you want to commit 100% to whatever it is you and your team are creating. You do not want to, nor can you afford to waste time.

If you’ve ever found yourself asking these questions — “Did we miss something in our brainstorming notes? Has David made the interview call? Is the PowerPoint file I am looking at the latest version?” — then it’s time to use apps for startups to streamline your management process and boost productivity.

Here are apps we recommend for you:

1. Evernote

Every goal starts with ideas. Evernote is a note-taking app for you and your team to capture, brainstorm and develop your brilliant ideas. Ideas can be easily and quickly dumped out of your brain and onto your desktop or smartphone, whenever, wherever you like.

2. Quire

Your startup begins with one too. Quire is a simple, fast and lightweight task management tool made to help teams break down their ideas into smaller and smaller tasks, so they can tackle them one by one.

If you are struggling with building your startup, now is a good time to use one or more of the tools mentioned above. Your startup can be successful when you use the right tools, and spend the right amount of time on the right tasks.
