Mac Apps for Productivity




Improve your workflow, share ideas and solutions effectively, and collaborate easily with a shared purpose. With these apps, you can maximize productivity and learn how to use your iMac or MacBook to their full capabilities.


Here are top 5 apps for a productive day at work.



1. Pages



Pages is a powerful word processor that lets you create beautiful documents. Effortlessly create sensational-looking documents by choosing a template, adding pictures, videos, charts, shapes, tables and more. With pages, you can customize every detail from text styles and orientation, document layout, and image arrangements.


You can export your document as a PDF, Word file (.xdoc or .doc), Epub file, Plain Text file, RTF and Pages '09 file.



Find Pages in Launchpad, Spotlight search (press command + space), or ask Siri.



2. Keynote



Create stunning and memorable presentations for everyone with Keynote. Keynote is a simple app with powerful tools that lets you design beautiful text, create eye-catching slides, and unveil with cinematic transitions. And with real-time collaboration, you can easily complete your presentation with your teammates to bring your ideas to life.


Share your presentations through AirDrop and show with AirPlay.



Find Keynote in Launchpad, Spotlight search (press command + space), or ask Siri.



3. Numbers



Add everything up beautifully with Numbers. Numbers is a spreadsheet that gives you the option to start with a simple table, an endless grid, or a blank canvas, so you have the freedom to organize your data any way you choose.


You can share your progress with your team with real-time collaboration, AirDrop and AirPlay.



Find Numbers in Launchpad, Spotlight search (press command + space), or ask Siri.



4. Reminders



Access your to-do lists on your Mac and never miss an important task. With the new reminders app, you can create reminders with subtasks and attachments, and set alerts based on time and location.


Make sure to set up your iCloud to keep your reminders updated across all your devices. So when you're about to head out, you can set a reminder on your Mac and get the notification on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch.



Find Reminders on your Dock, Spotlight search (press command + space), or ask Siri.



5. Calendar



Manage all your events in Calendar and organize your work schedule. Calendar lets you add events from different accounts like iCloud or Google, and color code and create separate calendars for different areas in your life. The app can also help you set up event invites complete with location, time, and time travel.


Alert yourself and invitees when it is time to leave or when it's 30 minutes before the set time. Set up your iCloud to access Calendar on your other Apple devices.



Find Calendar on your Dock, Spotlight search (press command + space), or ask Siri.



These apps are all available in iOS and iPadOS so you can stay productive wherever you go. Find more Productivity apps on the App Store.
