Even though they weren’t new in 2015, they continue to top our list for note taking and team collaboration applications. The ease in creating new notes, capturing files, voice memos, and more from virtually anywhere makes this application a must-have. Their premium version is fairly new and allows for extended services, too.

This platform offers an all-in-one communication hub that allows for searchable hashtags, the ability to upload images, links, videos and more. The UI isn’t as intuitive as many of the others that made this list, but we feel the positives this application brings far outweigh a “not as intuitive a UI.” We can only imagine with the adoption rate of this application that the UI will be updated in an upcoming version of this software.
This FREE project management tool is quite similar to the popular Basecamp project management application, but does so sans-email.
