Put your tasks, goals, and potentially non-productive screen time on the center stage with the help of this productivity-oriented new tab dashboard
New tab tools, and even productivity dashboards in the form of new tab extensions, are definitely not a new concept. Considering just how good some of them are, there’s a good chance you’ve already used one, or even use one at the current time.
The main issue with productivity dashboards in the browser is that most of them are not as straightforward or as clutter-free as they want to.
Thankfully, this is not the case with Fructify, a new tab productivity dashboard built by two highschoolers passionate about two things: software and getting things done.
Introduction to Fructify
In essence, Fructify doesn’t stray all that much from the classic formula employed by dozens of other tools. It replaces your Chrome new tab “with a more productive workspace.”
It focuses on helping you with three important aspects: organizing your tasks, capturing your goals, and tracking your screen time.
To put it more simply, you can create to-do lists, manage goals, and track your screen-time so that you can determine if your online habits may prohibit you from achieving maximum productivity.
Onto the details
With the basics out of the way, let’s go a little more in-depth. To-do lists can be created, organized, prioritized based on their importance, and even labeled to help you visualize and find them with less effort.
You can also set reminders to get notified when you should start working on a specific task. Better yet, you can define how long you want to spend on each task. When it comes to defining goals, it’s worth noting that you are provided with various metrics to track your progress.
Another great feature is the fact that each specific section of the tool has a designated overview/progress bar/pie.
While by no means groundbreaking, Fructify deserves credit where credit is due. For starters, it’s incredibly easy to use (the provided tools, features, and meters are very easy to access), and has a premium feel to it with its stylish and functional GUI.
The project may be the brainchild of two high schoolers, but as it stands it’s a decent tool for boosting your productivity. What’s even better, the team behind it has big plans for the future with exciting new features such as a dark mode, cloud storage support, multiple device login, a website blocker, the option to drag and drop tasks to rearrange their order, and quick access to various useful Chrome apps.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used Fructify for Chrome and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
