Free Apps To Make Your Life Easier
Free apps to make your life easier. Doesn’t that sound good? Each day I find I’m using more and more of my Droid apps and I wanted to share some of the best free apps I really love. These are all easy to use. I don’t like to have to spend a lot of time learning how to use them. You want to load those free apps and go, right?
25 Free Apps For You – Droid Apps and Apple Too
Amazon Kindle – Great for those eBooks! Easy to read and easy to purchase.
Brightest Flashlight – You never know when you will need a flashlight and this is one of the handier devices for a mobile phone today.
Buffer – I love this app on the phone as I can share anything anywhere at any time.
Calendar – Another one you must have to keep track of your appointments, vacations, scheduling posts out, etc.
DropBox – I haven’t used it yet but have it set up and ready to go. The drop box is a great way to keep all your files in one place. It is compatible with your desktop or laptop. Everything can be synced and easily found. You can read more about it over at Angela McCall’s post on “Save your business in the clouds”.
Facebook – Stay connected with family and friends via your mobile phone from anywhere at anytime. You can also use the Facebook Pages app and Facebook Chat.
Flixster –Not sure what movie to see? Just check out Flixster with your area location and it will tell you what is playing in your area; you can watch the previews too and purchase tickets. Love it!
Foursquare – I use it remember where I’ve been and to check out what my friends are doing, great for restaurant reviews too. A nifty app when you are on vacation.
Get Glue – Great to check into movies and shows that you are watching on TV. You can chat with others who are watching them. It’s like having your long distance friends and relatives in the room watching TV with you.
Instagram – If you love photos, videos and images this app is for you!
Key Ring – I love this one! This app saves me from carrying all those store tags around my key chain. It makes my purse lighter.
Mint – An app to keep track of your money, your spending and your savings. I had done this one year’s ago online and now they have a great free app to make it easy for you on the go.
Navigation – (Now called maps – by Google) This app is great if you are on the road for your job or travel. It can even suggest to you places nearby. I sometimes do cold calls and ask it “mortgage companies” and it will tell me those in the area to visit. You can even read the reviews of the businesses. There are several other navigation free apps available for mobile.
Pandora– A great music app on the go. I started using this one on my walks and the FREE apps version is great. You pick out radio stations that just play your favorite music. You can create up to a hundred of your favorite stations. With the premium app you can get NO ads, streaming select albums before they hit the store and Facebook integration.
PicsArt – One of the best mobile photo editor apps where you can become a great artist.
Pinterest – This is my favorite social media app. It is so intuitive and easy to use. It also has every function you need so that you don’t need to get to a desktop.
Runtastic – This is my latest favorite of free apps. I went walking at the riverwalk and I did not know how far the walk was. This app told me that and much more.
Tango – Text voice and video, great for video conferences. Everyone raves about this communications app.
Textgram – I learned about this app from Just Ask Kim. It is a lot of fun to create images with quotes.
The Weather Channel – I downloaded their app to get weather alerts as we are prone to severe weather in the summer. I love having the alerts pop on my phone and when I open this is what you see for the severe weather:
Twitter and Tweetcaster – I love Twitter and Tweetcaster helps me maintain several Twitter Accounts, I like that you can retweet with comments and see conversations, something that Twitter itself does not offer on mobile yet. I do use Hootsuite as well for one account and it has improved. I may go back to Pro if more improvements come along as some have since I last checked.
Tune In Radio – Great way to listen to radio when you are outdoors.
Viewdini – This app is like having a personalized video companion with you to discover, watch and share your favorite shows. You can connect with Facebook and your service providers to get more personalization.
Website Magazine – I love checking the latest info from them via their app. It is much quicker than opening their emails and reading each piece through. (It looks similar to the WP Touch plugin for WordPress.)
WordPress – A must app to answer comments on the go and on lunch. Great for approving or putting comments into spam too.
Do you use many of these free apps? What else would you add to the list?
