At Web Courses Bangkok, we have tried and tested these apps for you! We have put in the hours on your behalf and selected a compilation of the top 10 apps and tools for startups, creatives and savvy users, saving you time and the frustration of doing it yourself.

The 10 tools we have selected for this month are as follows:

Automate-that-shit

automate that s***

Finding Automate-that-shit was like finding the ultimate secretary, without having to pay the full salary of a professional.

Running a businesses can be hard enough without having to follow up on medial tasks that should require standard responses and reactions. These “little” tasks can pile up, when you’re running a business for yourself. Eventually, this pile up turns into a mountain of “little things” and you end up getting nothing done!

A team of developers have come together to create Automate-that-shit (ATS). This nifty web app helps to reduce the “human-time” spent on shallow work, that could be handled my machines.

ATS creates functionality to allow scheduling/triggering of tools. These tools could do anything, from capturing data and screenshots to exporting online HTML tables onto excel spreadsheets.

With this application working for your business, you can spend more time on the things that really matter!

Screen Focus

screen focus

Designers and developers are often found working on multiple screens. Students, at Web Courses Bangkok,
are no different and often take some time getting used to the wider workspace.

The added distractions of the screens not in use can elongate production time and cause a loss of focus. Screen Focus removes these distractions by dimming the screens not in use, allowing you to focus on the task at hand.

When the additional screens are needed, a simple move of your cursor, over the screen, will brighten it up again. Once the cursor is moved away, the screen will dim again. This allows you to utilize the additional workspace, completing tasks more efficiently, without the added distractions.

Papier

There is no shortage of apps out there that allow for note taking. If you are managing a body of staff, attending meetings or even just recording your thoughts, it is important that you find one that works for you.

What sets Papier apart from the ocean of other apps is the simple design, its great accessibility and its added style.

While other note taking apps are crowded with unnecessary features, Papier allows you to focus more by only including the features that matter. Export your notes for PDF or Print, count characters and even sync or backup directly to Chrome.

Papiers’ Chrome integration means that you can access your notes at the touch of a button. Simply open your Chrome extension and edit your notes from any meeting, phone call or brain-storming session. Never scratch around for loose papers again!

Eggsecution

Being a student can put you in a tight spot, financially. In between the full time study, many do manage to fit in a part time job, but students will always be counting the little pennies they do have.

Eggsecution recognizes the student struggle and offers massive student discounts on various tech products. Discounts range from free access to platforms and apps, such as Zeplin and Figma, to massive discounts on others, such as 85% off Slack memberships.

With the price of student living as high as it is, you can’t afford NOT to have Eggsecution.
