From Gamified Productivity Apps to Employee Reinforcement Platform

These modern productivity tools range from gamified work apps to employee reinforcement platforms that aim to encourage staff with positive feedback. Standouts include social productivity apps that let users improve work habits alongside co-workers. In addition to staying self-motivated, users can seek support from friends while being accountable to a larger group.

Other notable examples include streamlined email apps that categorize priority and spam messages in order to save workers time. While examples like Google's Inbox app group messages according to subject matter and sender, the TL;DR email platform keeps text concise and caps messages over 30 words in length. This particular example is inspired by social media platforms like Twitter that are designed with a limited character count while ultimately cutting correspondence time in half.
