Nifty add-ons for your tablet

LiquidText

LiquidText

People love this app because of its much-needed functionality of exporting important quotes and texts across multiple apps.

You can pull together excerpts from different documents and piece them together on LiquidText, search across all the documents in a LiquidText workspace, compare documents in a parallel platform and make comments referring to multiple documents (only for in-app purchase).

In the free version, users can read and interact with texts in a flexible environment, which is compatible with PDF, Word, and PowerPoint documents as well as web pages, import from Dropbox, iCloud Drive and email as well as import content from web pages or send to LiquidText directly from Safari.

The interactive feature includes organising and grouping excerpts and notes, tapping comments and excerpts to find the original source, pinching documents to compare different sections and collapsing texts to see annotated parts side-by-side.

Mindly

Mindly

For a scatterbrain like myself, organising thought processes can be challenging. Mind mapping helps one to focus and arrange their thoughts into manageable portions. The Mindly app helps to do just that, especially if you need to be practical and logical with task management.

The easy-to-use move, copy and delete functions are a big help to create your mind maps.

Overall, the app has great functionality and the design emphasises connection and functionality.

It is essential for thought structuring, idea collection, brainstorming, planning projects, preparing speeches and preparing for meetings as well as writing summaries for presentations.

The in-app purchase allows users to gain access to a range of export options.

MultiTimer

MultiTimer

As one user said, “Time is multi-dimensional. Always moving. Our brain has a hard time with fixed dates across time zones, but we can ‘feel’ when a meeting is just a few hours away. This app respects that.”

In terms of design, style and use, many users feel MultiTimer is the best timer app out there.

Multitasking is something all of us are accustomed to, so MultiTimer makes it easier to do just that. The app features workspace design with a custom grid of timers available in Countdown, Quick, CountUp, Pomodoro, Interval, Stopwatch and Lap timer modes, and it has advanced time configuration for days, hours, minutes, seconds and milliseconds and the option to add extra time to the active timers.
