Useful Apps

Back

The tech world has millions of software applications to choose from and as consumers we probably have at least fifty of them installed across all of our devices; but only a few of them are actually useful, or at least used on a daily basis. We realize that everyone has different preferences, needs, hobbies, devices, operating systems, etc., so the purpose of our article is to suggest some useful apps in several categories that perhaps peak your interest and or even become one you adopt in the future. As a side note, we reached out to our Facebook community and gained additional insight into what they were using so our variety was more diverse. None the less, read over our list and install one or two that you are unfamiliar with then have some fun.
