Best Apps For Freelancers (It’s Not Just About Google)

Last week, BestVendor, a review site that looks pretty interesting, released an infographic that shows some of the most popular apps for freelancers. Venturebeat covered the release here.

Some of the results were predictable. In a survey of 97 freelancers, the company found that various Google apps made seven appearances in the top 25 — Google Calendar, Google Docs, Google Analytics. (I don’t know about anybody else, but I find most Google apps to be blunt tools. Google Calendar is OK, but it has more functionality than I actually need. I prefer the streamlined Apple iCalendar that came on my Mac. Likewise, Google Analytics is incredibly powerful … but there are other, simpler traffic analytics services that have served my purposes better. We use Jetpack here at $200kfreelancer).

There were a handful of interesting apps on the list, though, including Dropbox, which Elaine and I have used for several years, as well as Evernote, which I would love to try.

Please let us know if you have any favorite apps. And here’s a previous post on a trick with Gmail that I found really useful: A Killer Work Habit That Is Easy To Adopt.
