Recently, we shared our must-have apps and asked you to share yours. Here’s what you came up with:
No surprise here—social apps help keep us connected to family, friends, and our ever-evolving technological world. Regardless of whether you think you need a smartphone or not, these apps have become the new social norm.
Secondary (but Incredibly Useful):
This isn’t so much an app, but it’s still incredibly useful. whether you’re searching through your emails or looking up an old contact, Spotlight Search allows for quick access to search through all of your accounts, applications, and web history.
One of the most entertaining and popular social apps of recent development, Snapchat can provide insight into your friends’ days, travels, or food. Adding your adventures to your Snapchat story keeps all your friends and family in the loop (regardless of distance). You can also keep yourself connected to world events with live updates from real users with their perspective.
While Soundcloud.com has been around for years, it’s when subscription-based music apps became the norm that SoundCloud found its way to the top again. With artists able to post independently and control their own profile, it’s even easier to discover new music. With minimal advertising, SoundCloud has become a current favorite amongst music apps.
Searching for a cheap lunch spot or something swanky for date night? Yelp makes it easy to explore the city around you. You can filter results by popularity, rating, price, or distance. As we mentioned in our previous post, Yelp is a must-have for any city dweller. Many businesses even give special deals if you check in or leave a review on Yelp!
Micromanaging your music library and playlists can be distracting and exhausting. Plug in your favorite artist and Pandora creates a radio station based on your preferences. My recommendation: channel your inner glam rock star with the fabulous David Bowie station.
An absolute must-download for big data users. Dropbox makes everything easier by being one of the leading cloud storage providers. Documents, photos, and videos can be accessed everywhere. Whether it be your phone, computer, or tablet—Dropbox is there for your backing up and sharing needs. Plus, it syncs perfectly with Parallels Access.
