2. AwayFind: “helps you spend less time in your inbox while staying responsive to the people who are most important to you.”
3. RescueTime: “helps track what you’re working on, keeping a diligent count of what’s happening on your computer. While it cannot track and account for your every moment, for those that are spending most of their time in front of a computer, RescueTime is the best tool.”
