If you’ve gone through our other categories, then you’re probably wondering what remote working tools could possibly be still left out to be termed as ‘other’ or ‘miscellaneous.’ Well, quite a few tools come under this category, actually. We might not have been able to classify them, but these out of the box tools are equally important to make your work easier, more exciting, and to enhance its quality.
For instance, consider a long day at work where your team members are all so preoccupied that nobody has had a chance to interact with the other members. Often, remote workers get so caught up in work that they forget to switch off and take a breather.

But, What can you do to avoid this rut? How do you make your work-life more interesting without having your team around to share the occasional joke or chat at the coffee machine?
That’s where these remote working tools come in.
Some fun remote working tools:
Consider Questup, for instance, it lets you have interactive Q&A sessions and engage your coworkers by letting them submit and vote on questions. Sounds like a great way to get your mind out of work for a while and have fun at the same time.

And if you’re someone who accidentally opens Amazon and ends up buying a fancy eraser an hour later since you had nobody to tell you that you don’t need it, then check out ReceiptLens and track your expenses.
