6 Apps That Are Constantly Improving Our Lives || 6 Apps You Must Have : Information technology has been developing at an incredible rate in the past decade, and it’s made our lives infinitely easier than before. If you have a smartphone, a tablet or any other kind of handheld device, there’s a wide array of fantastic apps out there that you can install and use for virtually any purpose you can think of. In this article, we’re going to be talking about six of the most useful ones that will have you wondering how you ever lived without knowing about them (if you don’t already use them, that is), so without further ado, here they are.
6 Apps You Must Have
The majority of smartphones these days have a built-in GPS unit that can be used to determine the location of the smartphone via the signal from satellites that constantly orbit the planet. This can be used for a variety of different purposes, and one of the most used and most popular is definitely Google’s fantastic navigation and map application, Google Maps.
Whether you’re on foot, on a bus or driving a car, Google Maps can give you extremely precise directions between any two (or more, for that matter) points in the world, and show you how to cross the distance as quickly and efficiently as possible. It’s literally impossible to get lost anymore, as long as you have a charged smartphone with Google Maps installed on hand.
Online dating has been somewhat of a taboo when it first started becoming popular, but nowadays it’s widely accepted and it’s actually one of the main ways in which both young and old people can hook up and start relationships. The most used dating app on the market with the largest user base is definitely Tinder, so you’ve probably already heard of it at some point. Its user-friendly interface makes the app very intuitive and easy to use so hooking up with a member of the opposite sex is a breeze.
No longer do you have to hang out at bars, shouting cheese pick-up lines into the ear of a person you’d like to engage with romantically. You can handle that entire initial, awkward ice-breaking moment entirely online, so you can get to the fun stuff as fast as possible.
I don’t know about you, but when it comes to shopping it’s near the top of my least-favorite things to do ever. It takes a huge amount of my time and I spend ninety percent of it just browsing and window shopping, until I realize that I’ve wasted over an hour without actually buying anything. This is why I’ve turned to online shopping for virtually everything except my groceries, and I mainly do it through Amazon. Their Android app is very user-friendly, very efficient and eases you through the whole process much more quickly than if you’d have to physically wait in line somewhere. It’s definitely my go-to method of shopping these days, I can’t say enough good things about it.
This app is basically your cable subscription, only it’s useable on virtually any device you possess, there are no annoying ads, and you can watch shows on your own schedule. I know several people that have canceled their cable bill altogether and just signed up for a Netflix subscription instead. Not only did it save them from the constant, uninterruptible ads that they’re bombarded with on cable TV, but they also saved a ton of money on cable bills. The only real issue with Netflix is that it isn’t really available in all regions of the world, so it’s a good idea to have a VPN on hand in case you need to access it from somewhere else, or when you’re on vacation.
Evernote is the ultimate organizer app that thousands of people around the world swear by and after they try it, claim that they couldn’t live without it and all the organizing capabilities it offers. Not only can you input text-based notes, but you can also record your voice or take an important photograph and neatly organize it within the app itself, so you can access it in mere seconds anytime you need it. If you’re a forgetful person and need some order in your life, I definitely recommend that you give this one a shot, as it will change your life for the better.
Finally, this is an app that will turn all your future trips from logistical nightmares into purely enjoyable experiences. As you know, it’s not that easy to organize a trip, there are a million things that you need to take care of, and if you forget just one of them, it can be a pretty big issue (depending on what you forgot, of course).
TripIt makes sure this doesn’t happen by automatically organizing all your travel itineraries so you don’t have to, and can instead focus on other aspects of planning and preparing for the trip itself. All you have to do is forward all your confirmation emails from your hotel, your flight etc. and you’ll find all the information you need neatly organized within the app itself. A fantastic concept that I’ve been using on every trip since I discovered it a year ago, and it’s made things so much easier.
