Tools I use part III will focus on increasing your productivity in communication, grammar, deep work or study, little notes and in Google Chrome. Some of the tools you might already know but hopefully not all the features as I try to elaborate on the most helpful once. Without further ado, please enjoy the tools below.
Instant language Translation
Google Translate – play.google.com and itunes.apple.com
As this is an obvious one to translate text, many might not know about the app having on-the-fly translation using your camera. See how it work in the video.

Some advertising from their website:
Stop the wrong music.
50% of us play background music while studying, working or inventing. But…it’s the wrong music! Mainstream music lowers comprehension and creates distraction because it is designed to connect with you intellectually and emotionally.
Use the right music!
Focus@will technology delivers various “Attention Amplifying” music channels scientifically designed to engage with your brain’s limbic system. This soothes the easily distracted fight or flight mechanism increasing attention span and general focus.
The science behind this.
We developed this in partnership with leading neuroscientists Dr. Evian Gordon (www.brainresource.com) and Dr. Stephen Sideroff (UCLA Professor of Psychology). Trials show typical 12-15% positive increase in focus biomarker and up to…
