Everybody talks about not having enough time to do the things they want, and every year, people resolve to try to do more. Productivity is the fourth subject we’re tackling in our series on getting you some tech help for your New Year’s resolutions.

This is my favorite topic, and it’s really hard to be inclusive with just five geeky ways. This bare-bones list is basically the five apps I would opt for if stranded on an island. We cover more of these apps in detail on the Nonstop Tech Podcast, so look there if you want to explore more options.

One of our favorite applications of all time, Dropbox, not only keeps most important files backed up, but pushes them to all of our computers and mobile devices. If you haven't used this application, go out and get your free account (with two gigabytes of storage) and enjoy having your access to the files stored in your Dropbox on your Mac, PC, Linux, Android, iOS. Dropbox even ties in with many applications and keeps your data backed up.

The basic Dropbox is free, but you can purchase extra storage for a fee.

    @theRemix first time I’ve heard of this. Playing with it now. Workflowy is like TaskPaper as a web app. Looks cool. I like the Mobile version too but the text file lover in me would love a way to save the file to dropbox. Nice call sir.
