Smart phones are ubiquitous today. We have become so reliant on mobile devices to drive our entertainment, social and knowledge networks that they naturally begin to intertwine with our professional as well as personal lives.
Smartphones these days are coming loaded with apps and if not we’ve several options to download apps which we are even not required. So, let me ask you one thing, of the dozens of apps that you have already downloaded on your smartphone, how many do you use regularly? It’s actually fewer than you realize, a new study suggests.
There’s almost always an app for, whether “that” is a taxi service, food delivery, gaming, ticket booking, banking or for even having services at your doorstep. Smartphones apps are one of those things that are easy to hoard because they’re cheap, don’t take up much space, and it’s easy to forget they exist. Every other day it feels like there’s a new hot app on the market, but in reality people are plenty comfortable with their old standbys. Isn’t it?
People these days are using apps to meet all their needs. Here, we have listed down few apps which will make you smarter:
Evernote: It is your list keeper, note taker, voice recorder, to-do manager, webpage clipper, and all-around digital multi-tool. It’s overwhelming at first, but you’ll quickly find a vast number of ways to put it to good use.
Google Drive: Google Drive isn’t just a cloud storage service. In addition to syncing and storing your files, it also includes a powerful mobile office suite, so you can create and edit files from your phone. Drive can even store your files locally, for offline viewing and editing. It might not replace your desktop office utilities, but it comes surprisingly close.
Netflix: When it comes to mobile video streaming, Netflix is hard to beat. It boasts a massive (if unstable) library of TV shows and movies, putting a world of entertainment in your hand. It’s an app that’s no longer just about killing time. It’s also about keeping up with the conversation about the latest hit shows. The fact that it now lets you download (some) shows for offline viewing is a huge recent advance for the service.
LastPass: Humans are bad at passwords, and we’re bad at remembering things. Thankfully, there are password managers like LastPass. With a password manager, the app generates unique, complex passwords for each site or app that requires one.
Facebook Messenger: The trouble with most messaging platforms is that they require you to enlist your friends to join as well. Not so with Facebook Messenger, because most of the living (and even the recently deceased) population already has a Facebook account. Facebook Messenger is loaded with bells and whistles, notably a huge library of stickers, video and voice calling, and the ability to send SMS messages. This app is also surprisingly privacy conscious.
Paytm: As Digital India is gaining pace, Paytm has become the synonym for all your recharges and payments. It has been downloaded by over 1 million people and having over 27,000+ five star reviews. Paytm enables you make your prepaid mobile recharge, DTH recharge or data card recharge in less than 10 seconds. It means it provides you the best and most easy way for On-Line recharge and bill payment.
Nearby: Nearby is an android app help you to find people, places and content near you. It is a free android app available on Google Play Store. You need to visit the above link to install this app on your android device.
Google Play Music: As expected, Google Play Music grants you full access to your cloud-based music collection on the go. The app is clean, lined with handpicked playlists and custom radio stations, and even presents smart recommendations based on your individual taste and prior listening habits.
SwiftKey: If you allow it to learn from your phone’s history, it’s surprisingly accurate in its suggestions and auto-corrections. Install, choose the keyboard skin you want and you’re all set.
Avast! Mobile Security: After downloading so many apps, your phone is likely to attract virus from different sources. This is undoubtedly the best android security app.
WhatsApp: WhatsApp needs no introduction. It’s a messaging app that uses your net connection (or WiFi when available) to provide a cheaper alternative to messaging, video calling and even normal calling.
According to an industry report, India’s mobile app market grew sharply last year, outpacing the US, and ranked number one in terms of Google Play downloads, highlighting the vibrancy of the country’s mobile ecosystem. Indians downloaded over 6 billion apps in 2016, up from 3.5 billion in 2015. That 71% growth was significantly higher than the overall 15% growth in app downloads around the world.
So, now after reading this declutter your smartphone (uninstall redundant apps) and start using apps which make you smarter and also reduce you your time and effort.
