Our smartphones have come a long way from just having an option to call or text, to serving as a small pocket-sized marvel that can do almost anything for us. They have become an inevitable part of our lives and living without them is like living without electricity – unimaginable.
They have changed the way we listen to music, play games, watch videos, communicate with each other and above, they simply make our lives easier. Nowadays, all modern smartphones are packed with useful apps like email, navigation, photography, messaging and the list goes on. Most of those pre-installed apps are great, but they usually lack some useful features which is why each of them has at least one alternative on the app stores.
In order to unlock the full potential of your smartphone, you will have to spend some time searching for those useful and feature-rich apps. We decided to save you time and possibly your nerves by providing you with the list of the most useful apps available on the market.
We could easily say that IFTTT is one of the most useful apps available on the market. With this app you can create commands which will automatically carry out a set of basic tasks, such as saving Instagram images and uploading them to Google Drive, turning on your smart lights, sending messages when near the desired location and other everyday activities. The great thing about the app is that it has support for more than 500 apps so you can easily automate repetitive parts of your daily routines. Also, it doesn’t take too much time to master the app. Last but not least, it can be used in smart home automation.
This app is designed to replace your existing keyboard with a new improved one. SwiftKey Keyboard is one of the most customizable third-party keyboards available on the market. The app learns the way you type and adapts to your writing style by providing accurate autocorrect and intelligent next-word predictions which only gets better with time. The app has something called SwiftKey Flow which allows multiple language support, gesture typing, cross-device syncing of your library and other useful stuff.
PDF Converter Ultimate
This list wouldn’t be complete without one, more business-oriented app. PDF Converter Ultimate, as the name suggests is the ultimate converter app for your mobile device. Convenience lies in the fact that you can convert almost any file format with great accuracy right on your mobile device without the need to use your computer. It can convert PDFs to more than 20 popular file formats and vice versa. Even scanned documents can be converted with the help of industry-leading OCR technology and built-in document scanner. You can import your files directly from your phone, Google attachments or supported cloud services like Dropbox, iCloud, Google Drive and more.
You should permanently put your default alarm to sleep in favor of this app. Sleep Cycle analyzes your sleep in order to wake you when you are in your lightest sleep phase. By waking up this way you will feel relaxed and ready to conquer your daily tasks with a smile on your face. It uses your phone’s accelerometer and microphone to track your sleep and will display detailed sleep statistics and sleep graphs. The app is fully integrated with Apple’s Health so you can track all your data in one place.
Moovit is one of the best transit apps available on the market with around 100 million riders across more than 1800 cities and it offers the most robust and precise public transit information. What’s great about this app is that a new city is added every 15 hours. Line schedules and tracks changes are constantly updated because public transportation is highly unpredictable. The app has live directions with notifications, supports bike share, real-time arrival information and the list goes on.
We hope you will find these apps extremely useful as we did and that they will help you in your day-to-day activities. In case we forgot to mention some of your favorite apps, please let us know in the comments below.
