Ten top apps for you to try out

Posted on: October 26th, 2013

I went to my monthly brainstorming breakfast last week and the subject this time was ‘My favourite app’. I thought I’d share these ten top apps that were among those discussed. I suspect you will probably use some of these already but, hopefully, there will be some new ones you haven’t yet come across. As far as I am aware most of these are free (or have a free version), except for eWallet:

1. Diptic
This enables you to create a montage of several images on your phone or tablet that you can post on social media. You are given a whole range of different templates and you simply select the images from your photostream that you want to include. Here’s one I did the other day:

2. Kindle
You can download the Kindle app for free from Amazon’s Kindle site to read ebooks on your phone or tablet. You don’t have to buy a Kindle.

3. My Fitness Pal
If you are looking to lose weight, you can work towards your goals with this great calorie counting app. You set a daily calorie goal and record your daily food and exercise. You can even scan in bar codes of food items for accurate calorie counting.

4. Snapseed
Snapseed is great photo editing software that will turn ordinary photos into fantastic ones. I also like PS Express which gives you ‘photo magic at your finger tips’.

5. eWallet
If you forget your various passwords, eWallet will store them securely for you on your phone. But don’t forget the password to let you access your eWallet account.

6. Skype
If you don’t want to be stuck at your computer or laptop when you make Skype calls, download the app and make Skype calls on your phone.

7. Citymapper
If you live in London or New York, Citymapper is a must. It shows you all the different ways to get from A to B, with suggested costs and timings. It even shows how many calories you will use if you walk or cycle there. I also use it  for the live bus departure boards.

8. Cake Day
Send someone cake wishes with this fun Cake Day app. And, when you blow on your phone screen, the candles get blown out!

9. Hailo
If you can’t find a cab, Hailo will find one for you. It operates in 15 cities in Europe, the US and Japan. You can hail a cab in just two taps and it will let you know how many minutes you have to wait before it arrives.

10. SignEasy
With SignEasy, you can sign documents electronically on your phone and tablet in almost any format: PDF, MS-Office, Open-Office, Text, HTML, JPEG, PNG and TIFF. A great paper-free way of signing on the go.

Which apps do you find most useful? Let me know in the comment box below.

    PS: I also really like the BBC iPlayer apps for TV and radio – they use up the battery but very handy. And, of course, all the social media apps that enable you to keep up with FB, Pinterest, Twitter etc on the go. Especially on the bus!

    Great suggestions here. I really like Tube deluxe. Has maps, journey planner, and live departure boards.

    last year fall I was away for several mtohns as I became my mother’s full-time caretaker while she was ill. And my wildlife garden finally succumbed to all of this neglect. The Norway Maple seedlings grew
