Smartphones have to be one of the most popular technological advances to date. While some people still have the flip phone in use, the smartphone is the popular device of choice. Whether it’s an Android, iPhone, or PIXEL, these devices are helping people get their lives while on-the-move. One of the features that make these so great is the ability to download Apps. The Apps add special features to the phone and allow users to do a myriad of different things.
Whether it’s music streaming, taking pictures, reading a book, or dating…whatever it is there’s probably an app for it. Everyone has a different lifestyle so determining which apps are right for you really depends on that. After some conversation, the below apps are some of R4L’s favorites and APP-solute must-haves to make your smartphone pop.
Streaming Apps are everything. Streaming music and movies are one of the perks of having a mobile device. All of the music and movies that you need are available at your fingertips, whenever and wherever you want it. There are quite a few services floating around but Netflix, Hulu, TIDAL, Spotify, and Pandora are some of our favorites. They give us the music we want, the visuals we need, and access to some of the dopest promotions and exclusives.
Taking flicks are an absolute must with a smartphone. The cameras on some smartphones are CRISPY and if you have a good eye, the images you take are clutch. Aside from factory photo settings, apps like VSCO, SnapSeed, and Camera+ are some top notch photo apps. The use of filters and other editing tools help users take their photos to the next level.
Reading is always recommended but summer reading is pretty popular. People make lists of summer books to breeze through while they are on the beach, on vacation, commuting to work, or just sitting around on the weekend. Both iPhone and Android come with their factory reader settings. Apps like Kindle, Nook, and Goodreads are on point for keeping up with the latest book trends. It also eliminates carrying around a stack of books. Goodreads is especially cool because it links you with book clubs for discussions and recommended titles you might like. If listening to stories is your thing then Audible is the app for you. It allows access to over 180,000 book titles.
Social Media on smartphones has been a must since day one. Socializing and keeping up with the lives of others was made so much easier thanks to social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, and Instagram. While you shouldn’t base your life on other people’s movements, it’s a fun way to stay connected to others.
Smartphones make it easy for people who like to be ridin’ around and gettin’ it. Whether it’s Uber, Lyft, Via, or WAZE, these apps make getting around your local area a cinch. Driving or getting a car is made easier with these apps.
These are just a few of our faves but of course there are hundreds of thousands of apps to choose from. We didn’t even talking about the apps for dating or shopping or even yoga! Trust us, browsing your app store could prove to be most beneficial at upgrading your Smartphone situation. Get to it.
