Top Free Apps for Your iPhone

Everyone loves a good freebie. When it comes to iPhone applications, some of them are really free while others are ad-supported. Users are OK with ads, but finding the right apps can be daunting. It is a bit time-consuming and difficult. If you are new to the App Store, this article can help you in getting the right app for your iPhone.

ResolutionTweet: ResolutionTweet is a simple iPhone app that can help users transform their Wish list into Will list. After launching this app for the first time, users can get into it with their Facebook account. Then they can start tweeting their resolutions inside the app. Their friends can comment, advise and motivate on their way to achieve their goals. When you commit to something in public especially with Friends and Family, you are highly likely to get it done. This is the basic idea behind the app. At present users need a Facebook account to use this app. I think the developers need to provide more options to signup in the future. ResolutionTweet is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad and requires iOS 4.3 or later.

Seal It Free: This is a social app that helps in recording deals between friends. Users need to create an account within the app to start making deals. Apart from proposing new deals, they can accept deals from their friends, assign witness to their deals and also be a witness to others deals. As they need friends to make deals, Seal It Free lets them invite a few through the phone’s contact list, email or Facebook. It is pretty easy to navigate around the app, but I think the developer should have included a Help section to it. Seal it Free is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad and requires iOS 5.0 or later.

Snake Returns: This is a classic game that helps users return to the time of black and white phone displays. It has two modes – Eat mode and Survive mode. As the snake eats more eggs, its body would extend and make the game more difficult. The game will come to an end when the snake bites its own tail. Players can control the snake in three ways – by tapping, swiping and using the motion sensor. Users can get additional features like – adding more lives, new levels and new snake designs through in-app purchases. This game is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 4.3 or later. The premium version of this app is available for USD 2.99.

It looks like we have finally reached critical mass with the plethora of iPhone apps available and one of the great things about the App Store is that so much on there is free to download. If you don’t want to spend much time in scouring the app store to find the right apps, just give a try to these few apps!

Top Three Android Smartphones Launched in the Year 2013

The year 2013 has witnessed the release of several smartphones that run on the Android platform. Reputed handset makers such as Samsung, LG, HTC and Motorola have released their own flagship products that compete with each other to attract smartphone buyers. All these handsets make the best use of the latest software and hardware technologies available in the market, which is why it is difficult to determine a clear winner among them. Here are the top three Android smartphones that have released in 2013:

a. HTC One: HTC was one of the first handset makers to launch their flagship model, which is known as HTC One. It is probably one of the best looking smartphones in this category of top models, as it sports a metallic body and a simple hardware interface. The screen-size is 4.7 inch with a resolution of 1920 pixels by 1080 pixels. One of the best features of this phone is that it comes with the highly acclaimed Beats audio system, which makes it the best choice for music lovers. On the other hand, HTC One uses its home-grown “ultra-pixel” technology for the primary camera. The device currently runs on Android Jellybean 4.2 version, which is scheduled to be upgraded to 4.3 in the near future.

b. Samsung Galaxy S4: Galaxy S4 or GT-I9500 is arguably the best Android smartphone for various reasons. The processor installed in the device clocks a maximum speed of 1.9 GHz and utilizes the quad-core technology. The size of its screen is 5 inches, which is well complemented by a superior screen resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels. The back camera is of 13 Megapixels, which is probably the best in the Android ecosystem. However, on the downside, Galaxy S4 still uses a plastic chassis, which makes it look less elegant in front of devices like HTC One.

c. Google Nexus 5: Nexus 5, developed by LG and released in late 2013, is a power-packed phone that provides the best components available at this point of time. The best thing about the phone is that it is the only device that currently runs on the latest version of Android OS, Kit Kat 4.4. Additionally, the quad-core processor runs at a maximum speed of 2.26 GHz, which is better than most other phones in its competitive zone. The Nexus 5 battery use 2300 mAh cells, which is relatively lower than the superior battery of Samsung Galaxy S4 (2600 mAh).

Smartphones and Mobile Apps: The Latest Craze

 Unless you have been totally oblivious to what’s going on in the world for the past couple of decades, you know how amazingly fast technology has been advancing. It has even come to the point that technology has become a very vital part of our existence. Gone are the days when one would need to turn on a computer to get connected to the World Wide Web. We don’t go to the internet anymore. The internet comes to us now, anywhere we may be.

I’m talking about smartphones and their capability to connect to the internet. These mini computers have become a big part of our lives. We don’t just call or text through them anymore. We check our emails, browse the internet, update our “status” on networking sites and even allow it to guide us as we drive. The smartphone has now become an alternative to computers and laptops. In fact, a lot of people report that they do not feel the need for computers anymore because of the smartphone.

Along with this trend, innovators of the mobile internet industry have made a lot of changes in the way we use smartphones. They have what they call apps, short for applications, which you can use to do almost anything on your mobile device. More popularly known as mobile apps, most of them work on specific platforms or operating systems native to the kind of smartphone being used. There are also some that are considered as cross-platform apps, as they can be downloaded and used by any smartphone of any make.

There are many different types of mobile apps and they meet almost every need of every individual smartphone user. One such type is the messenger app. It’s not just about the SMS or MMS anymore. This can come in a lot of different forms. In fact, a lot of smartphone makers have their own messenger apps that are platform specific – you can’t use it if you’re using a different brand of smartphone. But in less than 5 years, innovators were able to create messenger apps that can serve all smartphone users as long as they have data plans and internet connections through WiFi. Apps like Viber and WhatsApp even allow their users to send messages globally.

Another messaging mobile app that we can’t live without is the push email. This app is usually native to whatever make your smartphone is, but companies such as Google, Yahoo, and MSN have been busy making their email services available to their users independently from the smartphone device’s own app. They usually offer the email service with almost exactly the same user interface as the desktop version, making it easy for the users to move around with the familiar icons and “environment”.

And messaging alone is not the only app that’s being widely used today. Internet browsing, social networking, video calling, even money transfer, documents editing and time tracking mobile apps are now available on our little smartphones. With all these innovations and more going on as you read this article, can we be blamed for not being able to let go of our precious smartphones?
