Productivity apps are some of the most powerful tools modern companies have. Used well, apps can streamline a company's workflow and speed up the pace of business. There is the temptation to add more and more apps until every step in a process has been automated, and you hardly need human intervention at all. The market has responded to this pressure, and now there are more apps to boost your productivity than ever before. Thousands, in fact, and more are always being developed. This can lead to overload.
