Tenxer is like a pedometer for email: It tracks your every email step and pushes you to be more productive. Tenxer links to your Gmail account and monitors how productive and efficient you are in responding, opening and deleting email. Once a week Tenxer sends you an analytics dashboard providing an at-a-glance overview of how efficient you were. The goal is encourage you to be more efficient when it comes to the email time sink.

Tenxer can also track your Google calendar and Twitter activity, turning both into graphs that let you examine time spent in meetings and replying to tweets. The mobile app also lets you manually keep track of everything from customer interactions and meetings to how many cups of coffee you consumed. You can sign up for the service online or download the company's free iPhone or iPad app.
