Article 3: Apps!
2014 has been another great year for app developers. Now, not only is it easier to develop apps, but the overall scope of app development has vastly increased. This is majorly due to wearable entering the market. Plus, most new OS’s are redesigned and rebuilt for integrating well with third-party apps.
Most apps that have made it to the top list are extremely well designed and perform tasks like no other. They all have unique features. Many of them are award winning apps. Largely, most of the apps are free of cost, and are available both on iOS and Android.
I have written extremely precisely about the features to keep it simple and self explanatory for everyone.
So here is the list:
1. Google Inbox
Inbox is Google’s latest take on the mailbox manager, aiming to make it easier for viewing mails.
Inbox is an elegant mail manager. Unlike all the other apps, its the most intelligently built to keep you ever productive. I’ve used this app for over a month, and its simply the best mailbox manager app you can get. Obviously, it only works with Gmail.
Evernote is an app to take quick notes on the go. Its well reputed and has a strong feature list.
Evernote has been my pocket and desktop pal for the last few days: I use it for writing blog articles, making quick, sharable notes and share my notes with other friends on Evernote “Work Chat”. Its a very usable app overall and a must have for the tech kind- who love managing notes and lists on phone rather than on paper.
3. Stumble Upon
Stumble Upon is used to literally ’stumble upon’ articles of your interests.
Ever felt bored staring at your browser of Facebook? Or ever wanted to pass time productive? Stumble Upon is here to help you! As a user, I’ve found the app really interesting… for reading great articles, generating ideas and visiting pages unheard of. Must have app for every phone, tablet.
Health app for regular sport activity tracking.
After using it for a few weeks, I highly recommend this app for sports tracking. I absolutely love the way they show my bests. There are free training plans for achieving your aims, unlike any other health app.
5. Two Dots
A simple game that gets really addictive!
Two dots is like the modern version of Candy Crush Saga. Its simple, yet beautiful and much more fun to play than other puzzle games. There are tips and tricks you learn as you play and the games gets slightly difficult every now and then, keeping the fun levels up.
The original game isn’t available for Android, though there is a mentionable alternative called Dots.
Music streaming app.
Saavn is for the music addicts who don’t want to download complete albums to listen to them. Saavn is completely free for listening to all the songs in their database, though you need to pay a monthly subscription to allow downloading music onto the mobile app.
7. Monument Valley
Another puzzler with a twist!
Monument Valley is one of the most successful mobile games ever, especially on iOS. It has a complete storyline, amazing immersive music and a bunch of levels that is a story about guiding princess Ida through an illusion-filled world. Its a short game but deserves all the recognition for all that has been done in the background.
The ultra modern social messenger.
If you are sick of the old WhatsApp messenger, get Wire! Its an extremely intuitive messaging app, unlike the boring UI’s of all other apps. This app is highly recommended for everyone, and will get you addicted as soon as you start using it.
9. Onavo Extend
Savings on your limited mobile data plan.
This app is for those who want to get more juice out of their mobile internet pack. It works by installing a VPN on your phone which routes all your requests via a server that compresses the data before sending, hence reducing internet data usage. Simple to set up and works quietly in the background.
10. Math 42
Great app for solving variable equations.
Math 42 is an eduction app that aims to teach students step-by-step how to solve equations. Its graphing tool can easily graph very large degrees, the highest I’ve tried is x^50! A good app if you hate solving complex equations.
Those were the top 10. Other mentionable apps include:
4. Khan Academy
5. Swiftkey keyboard
Thats it for today. Do download the above apps and see if you like them. Merry Christmas! Do check back tomorrow for more posts on Toppers of 2014. Enjoy your holidays Technonerding!
