A World of Apps: The 10 Most Convenient Apps

This article will highlight different categories of apps available from various app stores. Between Google Play and Apple’s App Store there are over a million apps available for download. From games to educational apps, it’s hard to decide which apps you need and which will just end up taking up memory space on your device.

This week we’ll be looking at the ten most convenient apps you could have on your mobile device whether it’s your smartphone, your iPod touch or your tablet. These apps are listed in no particular order and represent a small cross-section of the most convenient apps available.

1. To-Do Lists

Every person who has things to do needs to have a to-do list on their mobile phone. Every morning you wake up with at least 10 things to do. You either need to remember to pay a bill or visit the grocery store. This app helps you to organize your day while you are on the go. Having a to-do list on your mobile device allows you the freedom of ticking off all the activities you’ve completed for the day while playing your part in saving a few trees.

2. Note Pad

You’re on the road and you just need to take down some information but you don’t have a notepad or a pen nearby. This app turns your mobile phone into an instant note taker. Just use the keypad to type in whatever you need to remember.

3. Voice Recorder

Whether you’re at an amazing concert or making a verbal note to yourself, a voice recorder app is a very convenient app to have on your mobile device. It allows you to capture audio moments right onto your device because sometimes a picture is not enough.

4. Wikipedia

Every mobile device should have a wikipedia app for those moments when you really need some information but you’d rather not sift through the mountain of google suggestions. Having a wikipedia app on your phone is like walking around with an encyclopedia in your back pocket.

5. Navigation

Being mobile inevitably means being on the go. One extremely important app to have while on the go is a maps app that allows you to pinpoint your current location and gives you explicit directions on the best way to get to your next destination.

6. Flashlight

It’s inevitable. One day your keys fall behind your seat in the car and the ceiling light is of no help. Luckily, you downloaded that flashlight app that turns the flash from your camera into an instant flashlight. This app also comes in handy during blackouts, surprise parties or if you’re just too lazy to get up and turn on the lights. Just be careful, flashlight apps tend to drain your battery.

7. Email

If you have a mobile device you probably have an email address. Most mobile devices allow you the facility of linking your email directly to it through an app. That way you don’t need to wait until you reach home and power up your desktop or laptop to read your latest email. There’s nothing more convenient than that.

8. Messengers

We should all be aware by now of the myriad of apps available that allow us to keep in contact with our friends and loved ones via our mobile devices. Every mobile device should have at least one messenger on it. Messengers like Google Talk and Skype make communicating while on the go cheaper and more convenient.

9. Remote

This particular app turns your mobile device into a remote that can control other devices that are connected via wireless. You may not use it every single day but one day you’ll be in your bathroom and need to turn down the music on your laptop. Then you’ll be glad you downloaded this app.

10. Cameras

Every mobile phone should come equipped with a camera. Camera’s have become a standard part of the mobile experience. Being able to capture special moments on your phone allows you the freedom to share them with others via social media or you can just keep them to yourself.

Regardless of your motivation for using and downloading apps, one thing is for sure. Mobile Apps make life much easier.
