We all like to think we’ve got our essential apps nailed. After all, we’re nearly a decade into the smartphone era. What on Earth could we possibly be missing? We’ve got Uber, Google Maps, Twitter, Whatsapp and so on. But with more than two million apps now out there, there’s bound to be some that you’re missing. Take a look at these helpful apps you’ve never heard of before.
If you want to keep up to date with the latest weather, Swackett might be the app for you. Swackett wants to be a little different to the other weather apps out there. It doesn’t just give you the weather. It also tells you what sort of clothing you should wear when you go out. Granted, you can probably make your own mind up on that one. But hey, we all know how hard it can be to make up your mind what to wear anyway. Is it time to whip out your sunglasses or reach for the umbrella?
The modern smartphone has become a symbol of the current frenetic pace of life. But just like other tools, it’s how you use it that counts. This is where Calm comes in. The company behind the app want to change the way we use our smartphones. Rather than keeping us up all night, Calm is designed to help users improve their mood, sleep and relax. As such, the app offers users short meditation practices of different types. Users can choose between two and ten minutes sessions, depending on how much time they have to spend.
The idea behind Moviebox, or Showbox as it is sometimes called, is to provide streaming services on demand. What’s unusual about the app is that it isn’t available through the regular Apple or Android app stores. Showbox app download can be a little tricky to navigate. But once you’ve got it set up, you’re ready to go. Like YouTube, Showbox services are free to the end user.
Are you somebody who likes a bit of culture in their daily diet of news? Well, Daily Art could be the app for you. The idea behind this app is to give users stories about various classical masterpieces. Readers get to explore the lives and workings of some of history’s greatest artists, like Paul Gauguin and James McNeill Whistler.
One of the most common problems for people who cook at home is having all the ingredients you need for every meal in the pantry. Often, you’ll be missing just one or two, and it’ll ruin your dinner plans. Or will it? The developers behind the app realized that cooking is a hassle mainly because you never seem to have all the ingredients you need. They realized that an app could provide a simple solution to that problem. Substitution provides a list of ingredients you can use in the place of ingredients that you don’t have to hand. For instance, if you don’t have any buttermilk in your fridge, you can use vinegar and lemon juice instead.
