These days nearly everyone has a smartphone but are you getting the best use out of it? Apps have been made to help you waste time and have fun. But did you know that there are apps that could make your life easier? Here are some apps that are guaranteed to make your day go smoother and your life easier.
This handy app will help you stay organized. You can note down anything that you need to do. Need shopping but don’t have time? You can send the list to your other half. Need a reminder to pick up your dry cleaning when you leave work? It can do that too. Personal and work stuff can be shared, reminders set and help you tick off your to-do list every day.
When it comes to beauty products sometimes the packaging can be misleading. Think Dirty scans the barcode of a product and tells you how dirty it really is. This app is a must for the eco-beauty shopper. There are plenty products out there that claim to be clean but this app lets you check that out for yourself without the need for a degree in chemistry.
This app is a must if you are out and about. It can help you navigate most major cities in the USA and Europe like a local. Most apps give you the option of walking or driving around, but this app is synced with local transport and taxi services too. You don’t need to be online to get around either.
Flush Toilet Finder
Humans have some basic needs and needing to use the toilet is one of them. The Flush app will show you public toilets in the local area. This is great if you are in an area that you’re not familiar with. If you have a sensitive system or a recently potty trained toddler, this app could prove to be a life (and trouser) saver.
If you enjoy reading blogs and want to save an article, now you can pop it in a pocket. The Pocket app allows you to store articles, recipes and pages from social media so that you can find it with ease later. It can sync with your other devices and will work offline too. You never need to worry about searching for your favourite stuff again.
This app has been around for years now and it’s still useful. Music is always changing and if you hear a new song that you like but don’t know the name, Shazam can tell you what it is. This app made a name for itself in nightclubs by helping people get the name of that catchy tune. It didn’t matter what noise was in the background, it could still tell you, and this holds true today.
If you are out and need something, Yelp will help you find the business that you need. You can search for local burger joints to furniture stores. All of the information on the app is generated from user content and feedback. So if you are interested in the store you are standing in, you can find out exactly what other people thought of it.
When you are travelling in a country that does not speak the same language as you, it can be tricky to get around. iTranslate can translate any printed text into your own language. You simply snap a photo of what you need translated, and it will translate it for you. Now you won’t have to worry about your food choices on holiday.
This has become a big hit in recent years with its easy wake-up alarm. Sleep Cycle tracks you as you sleep and wakes you up when you are in a light sleep within a 30-minute window. If you are someone that does not do mornings then this app could help you face the day a bit better.
Let’s face it, everyone has a million different apps, email accounts, online shopping stuff. And you probably try to have a couple of different passwords that you use. But which one for which account? LastPass stores all of your passwords securely so that you won’t get locked out of your various accounts again.
If you spend anytime at all in a car, then you should try this app out. Waze helps you avoid traffic jams, speed cameras and accidents. It can even tell you if there is police up ahead. Now you won’t have to get stuck in a traffic jam to know that it is there.
