Productivity Apps for iOS and Android

Spring cleaning season is upon us! Perhaps your inbox could benefit from some downsizing and organization. Maybe you’re interested in optimizing your smartphone’s performance to suit your lifestyle. Here are some of the best productivity apps included in the FIS App Catalog to help freshen up your smartphone and your outlook on productivity this spring.

Lifestyle and Productivity

Tapingo Logo


Tapingo, a mobile food ordering application, provides direct service from 38 locations in Oakland and surrounding areas. Locations include Mad Mex Oakland, Panera Bread, and Chipotle. Users can place a custom order and either pick it up or have it delivered to a chosen address.

Eventbrite Logo


Eventbrite is an event application that allows users to create, promote, and buy tickets to events in 21 countries. Eventbrite is active in Pittsburgh, with events spanning from charity events to industry showcases and conferences. Eventbrite can help facilitate business growth and individual networking through both posting and promoting events and making attending events in the area as easy as the push of button. App Logo App

The app, a mobile offshoot of the popular website, offers voice search, audio pronunciation, translator, and word origin and history. The app also offers an offline mode and is optimized for the Apple watch. While the app is equipped to help you in your moment of need (spelling, definition, and synonyms and antonyms) the app keeps things light with quizzes, Words of the Day, and original content to supplement and enhance learning and curiosity.

Business and Security

MiniKeePass Logo


As the number of strong passwords we create to access our data and services increases, remembering them all can become a chore, if not a gamble. MiniKeePass, a password storage application, can securely store your passwords on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running iOS 7 or later.

Email Apps: Outlook Mobile Logo


One of the blessings (and to some, curses) of the smartphone is the ease with which users can view and respond to email. Microsoft acquired Acompli in 2013 and turned their email app into the mobile version of Microsoft Outlook. Outlook supports most of the popular email services. The Verge named it the best email app for iPhone stating, “If you want full control over your inbox and the services that surround it, Outlook is your only choice.”

Skype for Business Logo

Skype for Business (formerly Lync 2013)

With all of the features and functions of Skype, Skype for Business (formerly Lync 2013 on iOS) provides users with a simple way to meet and chat with members of their institution or business groups. Instant messaging, video conversation, content sharing, and meeting scheduling are all available on the app. Skype for Business is available to all Pitt students, faculty, and staff making it an indispensable and convenient resource for anyone looking to take full advantage of teamwork and communication within the workplace.
