Sometimes you just need to check on a few items and update a few things on your phone or Apple iPads, and to accomplish this the majority of Android apps you can find can help you do it. However, just because you can find an app to help you check something doesn’t mean you should use it all the time. Android apps vary in their usefulness. What apps work for you? Here are a few to consider.
Gmail and Google apps
With Gmail and the Google apps, you can have one user experience for a few different accounts. Whether you’re checking your email on your work account or your personal one, you don’t have to deal with duplicating inboxes.
If you have a group of people who need to update a shared project, Trello is an excellent tool for keeping all of them on track. You can also create cards for each person to keep up to date, and you can even share cards with other groups so everyone has access to the same information.
Every mobile device has a camera now, but for something more private, you can just take a photo with your phone and share it with others. However, what happens when that person turns into a ghost? You can still share your photos with your friend, but if they leave your phone behind, you won’t have any proof of them. Using the app Yonkers, you can anonymously share photos with your friends, and they don’t have to know you’ve been talking about them behind their backs. Further, you can also check WhatsApp activities with the help of WhatsApp tracking apps.
If you’re just looking for a simple shopping list app, Yipit is ideal for a number of things. You can keep shopping lists organized, find things at the store, see deals nearby, and so much more. You can even enter the name of the item in the search bar, and the app will help you find similar items.
Mail and Chat
Not everything is a communication app. If you just need to send an email or have a quick text, then Mail and Chat is a good option. There are a lot of options, but the free version gives you plenty of space to work with, including a clear inbox, tracking capabilities, and more.
Sometimes you need to use your personal Google account on other apps to get them to work correctly. For example, if you use Facebook, you want to be able to share photos and whatnot with your friends there, but it may not be clear how to do it or if you can do it without Facebook. However, if you go to Google+ and sign in, you’ll have all the accounts you use in one place. Then, you can easily share a photo with your Facebook friends without having to send them to a separate app.
If you’re looking for a place to rent, you can find a place on Zillow. You can check the photos, get some insight into the area, read reviews, and make a decision without ever leaving the app. You can also access Zillow in other places like Facebook, Google, and others.
If you’re traveling, you don’t want to pay for extra data. Many hotels and providers tend to charge extra for extra data, and they may even limit what you can and can’t do with it. ZenMate is a VPN for your phone or tablet that can help keep you safe while you’re on the go. You can check out a free trial and decide for yourself how you like it.
Contact by Evernote
If you need to chat with someone but you don’t want to have to deal with messaging them through an app, contact by Evernote is a great option. It’s a messaging app that also saves emails, text messages, and voice memos. It’s super simple to use and not at all creepy.
Many hotels offer free Wi-Fi, but if you’re not sure what is available, you may want to use Wi-Fi Checker to see. The service lists hotels with free Wi-Fi so you can save a little time and money by picking a place. You can also use the site to find out if the hotel is on any “do not stay” lists.
While Hotel Checker is all about hotels, Peek is all about finding public libraries and other public places with free Wi-Fi. When you enter a location, you can see if it has free Wi-Fi and what the speeds are like. If you need a hotel, but don’t want to deal with the hassle of dealing with check-in and the paperwork, this is a great option.
