This is one of the most important weeks of the year for those looking to tap into the massive pool of mobile apps. The final few weeks of September are critical to the rise of apps in the App Store. It’s important to remember, though, that there are many must-have apps as well as those that will flop. Here’s a look at the must-have mobile apps for the final few weeks of the year:
If you’re one who likes to stay on top of the hottest topics, you’ll want to consider this one for the Apple iPhone and iPad. You’ll be able to keep up with breaking news and entertainment on the go thanks to apps like Twitter Flip. Plus, you can set particular preferences when it comes to where your Flip shows up on the screen. Just make sure that it’s not in direct competition with the iPhone and iPad. If it is, they may actually become less useful over time. At any rate, this one is a must for anyone who has a mobile device.
If you use the Amazon Kindle Fire or the Nook Tablet, you’ll appreciate the availability of some great apps. Apps that make using your device easier and more convenient include Maps, FantaTV, and Instantly Answers. With either of these apps, you can find out just where you’re located within the city or town that you’re in. You can also get the latest weather report, book a hotel, or view movie listings right from your Kindle or tablets.
Many people like to keep their device protected from water, even while it’s docked on a tabletop. For this reason, many portable devices now come equipped with slide-out keyboards that work great in shower environments or other wet areas. This is why the BlackBerry Storm will come with an excellent water-resistance feature. If you don’t have one yet, you’ll want to pick up one soon.
As we all know, we all need to take multimedia everywhere with us. If you own a camera or shoot videos with your cell phone, then you’ll definitely want to download the excellent Video Dome. You can watch your favorite videos on the big screen or take them with you wherever you go with the easy, one-touch video pod-style capabilities of the Video Dome. You’ll definitely be glad you added this one to your list of must-have apps.
Think about this, if you ever are lost in a foreign country, you wouldn’t want to send your data or pictures to your home computer. Right now, there is software that allows you to send images and photos by Bluetooth to nearly any computer with an internet connection. However, the technology is still new and you may run into some problems. That’s why the Wahoo Krome Wi-Fi Texting app comes highly recommended. It lets you send text messages from your phone to almost anywhere.
What if you need to access your email on the go? Would it not be great to be able to check your email from the road? With the iPhone or iPad, there are mail apps that will allow you to check your email while you’re on the road. In fact, you can even set up autoresponders so you won’t have to carry your laptop around every time you go for a business meeting. The BlackBerry Playbook is yet another handy device when it comes to checking emails. Check out BlackBerry Messenger for more information.
Finally, did you know that you can download apps for your iPad or iPhone almost anywhere? That’s right, you don’t have to go looking for the apps at the app store or at one of the major service providers such as the App Store, Google Play, and Apple’s own App Store. Now, you can get access to these great apps right from your home computer. All you need is a wireless connection and you’re good to go. You can use any of these apps at any time, no matter where you are.
