Mobile apps have significantly grown in popularity over the last few years. According to Statista.com, there were over two million applications available on Google Play and Apple’s App Store in 2018. This number keeps growing as new apps find their way to the market. As much as we love technological growth and development, having so many apps available makes it difficult to find the best ones. That’s why we’ve put together a list of seven apps that you need on your phone right now!
The Podcast App is great for those who are often on the go. The app features thousands of free podcasts. Users can subscribe to their favorites and get notified when a new episode goes up. This app is useful both in terms of entertainment and education, as there are hundreds of topics you can choose from. And the best part is that users can download podcast episodes and listen to them offline, whether while running, driving to work, or waiting in a line.
1Password is the kind of app everyone should have on their phone. It was designed to improve online security by strengthening passwords. This particular app is an affordable and high-quality solution for password management.
It helps users create secure and unique passwords, as well as log into websites by using their fingerprint. You can use the app for free for the first 30 days. Then you have to cover a small fee of only 2.99$ per month. Those who want a free alternative to strengthen and manage their passwords can try a similar app called LastPass.
VSCO is one of the most popular photo editing apps on the market. It offers dozens of photo filters that will make your Instagram photos stand out. Besides all sorts of filters and effects, VSCO allows users to apply detailed adjustments to the photo as if they were using a mini pocket version of Photoshop.
Users can download and use VSCO for free, though some effects and filters are only available to users who purchase the yearly membership of 19.99$.
NordVPN is another one of those must-have apps that you should download and install for security reasons. It provides high quality virtual private network services at competitive prices. A reliable mobile VPN allows users to browse the internet anonymously, encrypts all data traveling to and from the device, and keeps you safe from hackers.
It can also virtually change the user’s location to bypass geo-restrictions or access regional offers and discounts. We also highly recommend using a VPN when connecting to unprotected public networks.
Pocket is a convenient app that functions as a browser add-on. The app allows users to save articles they find online and store them in their “pocket.” They can later access the articles offline, which makes this app suitable for those who spend a lot of time commuting or somewhere with poor mobile coverage.
Evernote is a convenient note-taking solution that makes it easy to take notes on the go. The app allows users to take notes in the form of text, voice, photos, or videos and store them for later use. The writing platform includes plenty of formatting options that allow users to structure their notes and documents properly. The app also offers plenty of writing templates to make the note-taking process simpler.
Last but not least, Liner is a one-of-a-kind app on the market that allows users to highlight sentences and paragraphs while reading online articles.
Each highlighted sentence remains stored in the Liner app. Those who read a lot or do research via mobile devices will find the Liner app very useful. Users can also download the Liner browser extension and use it on desktop devices.
Mobile apps are not only designed to be fun and entertaining. Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store are full of handy apps that can make your daily routine easier or help you make the best out of your time throughout the day.
