Multitasking is actually a myth or an illusion we created. When you are ‘multitasking’, what you are essentially doing is task-switching, multitasking is the result of rapidly switching between the tasks you are doing back and forth.
The best apps for multitasking at work in our eyes are those that help you focus on completing one task effectively. While at the same time managing and maintaining progress on others too.
