Top Five Apps and Products to Stay Productive While You Work from Home | MacSources

Working from home is becoming a trend worldwide due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. Some people have done it for a long time, but others are brand new to the concept. I’ve worked for employers that encouraged employees to work from home to maintain a work-life balance. I’ve also worked for employers who didn’t know what “work from home” meant. I wouldn’t call myself an expert at working from home, but I’m definitely well-practiced in the artform and manage to keep home separate from the work. With that said, I have pulled together a list of apps, products, and tips that can be helpful as you navigate the work-from-home landscape.
