As a blogger, we want ourselves to stay focused on our work to get success in blogging. In other words, we want to grow our blog to make money blogging.
I know it’s hard to focus on your work when you’re surrounded by so many distractions, but you have to be focused to work hard and smart to make more money from your blog.
That’s why today I’m here with some of the most helpful and productive mobile apps for bloggers that you should use as a blogger to make your blogging journey easier.
Let’s dive right in.

2. Google Tasks
As a solo blogger, you’ve to manage multiple tasks in a day and nobody is capable of remembering everything at all times.
Organizing your tasks with a to-do list can make everything much more manageable.
A to-do list can boost your productivity, it helps you clarify your goals and that’s why you get more done with a to-do list app.
I used a lot of task manager apps but I think Google Tasks is the best task manager and to-do list app, because of its elegant look and easy to use features.
Google Tasks lets you create a to-do list within your desktop Gmail, Google Docs, or the Google Tasks app.
It syncs across all of your devices and you can easily manage, and edit your tasks from anywhere, at any time.

I always use Google Docs to write blog posts. Because while writing I often collaborate with my team and it’s easy to collaborate here.
Also, in Google Docs it’s easy to format a blog post by using H2s, H3s, titles, font, bullet points, etc.
Also, the Grammarly Chrome extension supports the web version of Google Docs. So, you can easily check grammatical errors and enhance your writing in Google Docs.
The mobile app is so simple with a clean interface, it’s easy to use and by using all features you can easily write a ready to publish, well-optimized blog posts on your smartphone.
I love Canva and I think it’s an essential design tool for bloggers, digital marketers, entrepreneurs, and small business owners.
It’s a beginner-friendly and easy to use online design tool, and the best part is it has a free version.
I’m using Canva to design engaging Pinterest pins, blog graphics, social media graphics, E-books, and more.
By using Canva mobile app or web app you can quickly design almost anything using free pre-made and ready to use templates.
Also, you can collaborate with your friends and coworkers to work together and faster.

You can add labels and colors to your notes to quickly organize them, it will help you easily find them later.
Also, you can set reminders and If you want to find a note you saved, a simple search will turn it up.
I’m using PayPal for a long time to receive international payments from Google Adsense, business partners, and clients from all over the world.
PayPal app is a more simple and secure way to send and request money online. for you, if you’re a blogger, freelancer, or anyone who’s working online and wanna receive payments online.
Like me, if you open a PayPal Business account for receiving international payments, both of us could earn US $10 each!
So what are you waiting for?
Now, I’m not going to write a long essay on Gmail. LOL.
We all know about Gmail.
Gmail is an easy-to-use free email service developed by Google that saves you time and keeps your messages safe.
The best part,
You can set-up your professional email address with Gmail and manage your professional mail account from your phone.
A professional email address is the one that has your brand name or business name in it.
email@example.com is a professional email address.
You should use Gmail because of its organized inbox, it blocks spam and keeps your account secure.
Also, you can access Gmail right from your smartphone and anywhere.
13. Pomodoro Timer
The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s.
The technique uses a timer to break down working sessions into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by 5 minutes of short breaks.
As a busy blogger, you can use a Pomodoro Timer to use The Pomodoro Technique while you write blog posts or when you design graphics for your blog and social media.
It can boost your productivity because frequent breaks keep your mind fresh and focused.
Also, the timer creates a sense of urgency and makes you more responsible for your tasks and reduces the time you spend procrastinating.

It also allows you to view notifications from your phone in your desktop app or browser.
You can also view and send text messages, WhatsApp messages, and more to your phone from your desktop.
It’s really hard and messy to manage all your passwords and I think it’s impossible to remember all your affiliate accounts passwords, and lots of other websites login details.
