It’s hard to remember a life without apps. Growing in popularity in recent years, we use them on a daily basis, whether it’s updating our social media accounts, tracking our calorie consumption or gaming on the go.
App stores are congested and competition is rife. Don’t waste your time with trial and error downloads — take a look at our list to find a host of must-have apps that will actually make your life easier.
Paperwork has been on the way out since we don’t know when, yet we still end up with a pile of papers, invoices and business cards. Make sense of them with Evernote Scannable, a clever app that helps you organise your most important documents.
Using your smartphone camera, you can scan the documents to create a digital library. As you’re never without your smartphone, it means you’ll always have the essential information you need to hand. What’s more, the app will even pull in details from LinkedIn and match them to your business cards, providing a more comprehensive contacts list.
Out of Milk
Co-ordinating a household can be difficult at the best of times, especially in the grocery store. Writing a shopping list can be difficult, especially when your better half fails to remind you that they’ve used the last of the milk.
Out of Milk is an app that puts an end to it all. Available to Android users, it allows you to create a digital shopping list that multiple people can add to and update. By updating your shopping list in real-time, there will be no risk of buying the same thing twice.
