It gets really difficult to pick out the best ones that’s actually useful and worth your time when you have more than 2 million apps to choose from for iPhone and Android. Honestly, if your expensive phones don’t have quality apps, it’s as good as useless. From games to photo editing apps, we have listed out our favorite apps of the year 2017 that are fun yet useful:
1. Super Mario Run
This nostalgic game becomes all the more fun as now instead of controlling Mario directly; you tap the screen for interrupting his default running motion while making imaginative choices. The Super Mario Run App came for iPhone in December which was already released for Android previously in March.
2. Microsoft To-Do
A list of chores designed for ensuring you don’t forget to pick up groceries on your way back home from work, how sweet is that?! Microsoft To-Do is an easy to use, beautifully designed app which consists of all the important deadline reminders.
3. The Great Courses Plus
We don’t mind if you want to kill time on your phone with the latest games flashing on the App Store, or by endless scrolling through the photo-sharing app you like. But if you want to invest your time in a better way, we are introducing this app to you. This app is full of fascinating lectures from a variety of top college professors.
This app lets users star in and create their own music videos. It has been popular since 2015, specially among teens, and shows no sign of slowing down.
These days, it gets really impossible to keep up with all the twists and turns of our 24/7 news cycle. Funnel is an app that streams the latest audio newscast from major sources like BBC, CBC, NPR, and more. It’s like having a single radio station with a huge variety of content to keep you constantly in the know.
Who is unaware of hashtags in this age? It is a tried and tested weapon for growing your fan base on Instagram. Ideally, you look for hashtags that are relevant yet not so overused that the photos get lost in the crowd. All you have to do is to tell the app what type of image you are uploading, and it will come up with a mix of hashtags to help you get the correct audience. Use Focalmark and let the likes roll in.
FaceApp uses AI to morph faces in photos. The app store is flooded with photo editing apps which lets you add filters and corrects the overall look of the image. FaceApp goes a step ahead and allow users to apply filters that change their facial features, age and even gender. Cool, right?
The iPhone’s camera has evolved a lot with time. The video editing app launched recently lets you add elements like emoji, filters, and text. These days, almost all the apps have such features. However, Clips is a little clever when it comes to adding captions. While shooting a video on Clips, you can just dictate the subtitle and the app will automatically add it in sync with what’s happening on screen.
