Apps Gents Should Have on their Smartphones
Hearing this word will conjure images of someone with a smartphone in hand. Chances are this person is playing Clash of Clans (or perhaps, Candy Crush), checking for NBA updates, or editing a picture. It's amazing that you can do all these things with a phone. That's the power of apps.
Simply put, smartphone applications help you navigate your Internet-connected and modern life. They help make your life much easier and more organized. They allow you to revel in some new forms of entertainment, meet new people, and gain new perspectives.
Below are some of the applications every man must have in their smartphones:
Notebooks are the ideal tools to record things, but you can't always count on them, especially if you're always on the go. You won't be able to write down things with pen and paper if you're inside a packed train or a moving taxi. In situations like these, Evernote is your trusty friend. Through this app, archiving and organizing things have become much easier. You can even use it to create a presentation. The basic tools to keep your things organized are free, but premium features, such as digitizing business cards, come with a price.
Quora or Reddit
Men should engage in intellectual conversations every once in a while. Other than conversing with some of your intelligent friends, you can meet new people and challenge your wits by joining Quora or Reddit. While both apps are for those who like forums, there are some differences to take note. For instance, Reddit is more concerned about current events and entertainment, while Quora is more focused on questions concerning heavy topics, such as Science, Philosophy, Business, and Literature.
If you feel like your car's GPS is trolling and confusing you, it's high time to download Waze. This app is simply a modified version of a traditional GPS navigation application. It's improved in a way that allows users to form a community, from which you can get information on traffic, road obstructions, and some shortcut tips in real-time. It will also help you find the nearest gas station that offers the cheapest fuel.
Think of Tinder as your loyal wingman. This social media application will help you find the one (or some new friends). Once you have downloaded the app, create an attractive profile and use its swipe feature to find potential matches. Tinder works through GPS. It presents potential matches to you based on their proximity to you.
Want to impress your mates with that fiery whiskey mix? Be your own bartender with Mixology. This app is simply a "cookery book" of thousands of recipes for alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. It can help you come up with cocktails, shots, and punches from scratch. Just keep this app a secret if you really want to impress people.
There's one thing the digital culture has taught us; we need to keep up with the pace of the modern life and respond to newly discovered needs. And to cope with everything that's happening in your life, you need a smartphone and a set of killer applications.
