Top 10 Most Useful Apps

Today we are flooded with millions of apps because anyone who wishes can develop apps. With smartphones and now tablet PCs as a part of our everyday lives, apps have come to play a big role in how we obtain information, get entertainment, or simply just past time. I just found out about “Top 10 Apps That Will Change Your Life” that the Wall Street Journal Europe presented.
1.       1. Shazam: Have you ever heard a song that you love in a store but had hard time remembering the title? You can just “Shazam” the song now. With this application, you can just hold up your phone to the music and get the song title and the artist.
2.       2.  The Good Food Guide 2011: This is a British that lets the users read and write reviews on restaurants. It also uses Wifi to locate nearby restaurants.
3.       3.  OmniFocus: OmniFocus uses the GPS and Wifi to remind the user of the things on the “to-do” list according to the user’s location. For example, if ‘buying fruits’ is on your ‘to-do’ list, this application will remind you when you’re near a supermarket.
4.       4.  Drinks Tracker: this application keeps track of the user’s “ongoing alcohol intake.” This is very useful for those who are trying to cut back on their alcohol consumption or for those who are trying to control themselves when partying.
5.       5.  Data Vault Password Manager: this application lets the users save passwords, PINs, credit card details, and other personal information. All these infos are protected with strong security and you won’t have to worry about remembering all the different passwords for all the different apps and services.
6.       6.  Find My Car!: this application allows the user to easily find their parked car in a huge parking lot. Now you don’t have to wander around trying to look for your car. You can also record the visual information using the phone’s camera to follow the map even more easily.
7.       7.  Layar Reality Browser: this application uses augmented reality technology (which I will write about in more details some time later). You can hold up the iPhone’s camera to take a picture of your surroundings and this application will flood you with useful information. You can find good restaurants, bars, shopping spots, etc. using just this one application.
8.       8.  IMDb: IMDb stands for Internet Movie Database and it has all the information about both classic and recent movies.
9.       9.  Spotify: this application provides online music streaming on your smartphone. What makes this even better is that you can play back tunes when offline. Even when you lose wi-fi, you can still listen to your favorite music as if you’re streaming it online.
10.   10.  Word Lens: this application uses the phone’s camera to take a picture of printed words and translate it into another language. So if you’re travelling around the world and see a sign that you do not understand, you can simply use this application to translate it.
