A phone or tablet can turn into almost anything its owner needs, with the correct choice and use of apps. But with a marketplace full of thousands of apps, finding the ones that will transform your device can be tricky. Here are a few of our suggestions to get you started.
This handy photo editing app for iOS devices and Android devices is extremely versatile; you can edit every aspect of any snapshot you take with your phone, easily adjusting contrast, brightness, saturation, and more– plus more advanced features like masking and adding elements. It’s like a mini Photoshop in your pocket.
If you haven’t already signed up for the Netflix streaming service at eight bucks per month, this handy app will make you want to! Your mobile device will turn into your personal movie theater, streaming thousands of premium shows and movies anywhere you go. This really transforms waiting rooms, and it can be a lifesaver when driving with kids.
Organizing can be difficult– and the sheer number of organizing apps out there is overwhelming! But Google Keep, as with most Google apps, provides a clean interface and great practicality. Simply add an event or checklist, getting as detailed (think driving instructions, a reminder message sent to your inbox, etc.)as you want or leaving it basic (Buy Milk). The app will display a homepage with all of the additions you make neatly arranged like multicolored sticky notes on a white background. Anytime you want to check your to-dos, have a look through your notes and “throw away” the ones you don’t need anymore.
Although this is for iOS only, it’s too amazing to leave off of the list! This incredible app offers the user dozens of intensely realistic instruments, prerecorded loops, and more to play, arrange, and edit– all in the app. For amateurs and professionals, this is one fun and absorbing app.
Super-Bright LED Flashlight
This handy app really does make your phone or mobile device into exactly what it says: a super-bright, LED flashlight. Great for when you drop something behind the couch, need to unlock your door at night, or wonder what that noise in the garage was.
This is a must have for finding just about anything. Out and looking for a great place to eat? Yelp can help with that, need to find a auto expert to check your car? Yelp can help suggest locally trusted shops such as Island Muffler & Brake Shop. You can see which locations are nearest you, their hours, get their number and even read reviews on others experiences with the business. It is a great way to see what you near you and review a company before giving them your business.
Sometimes the simplest games are the hardest– and the most fun. Dazzlingly designed and delightfully flippant, this little game is well worth its modest price. We guarantee that you’ll be playing it constantly– and it’s simple enough to share with your child, should he or she need entertaining!
Facebook, Twitter, and More
Of course you can navigate to your preferred social media sites via your phone’s browser, but including the relevant app makes checking in so much easier. Facebook and Twitter, especially, have slick, well-designed apps that are a joy to use.
