It seems as if there's a plethora of different apps that are available to purchase at the moment. Some are good, some are not so good. The problems arise when it becomes increasingly difficult to differentiate between the genius and the frankly ridiculous. Hopefully, we're here to help clear things up for you in our Top 10 apps that you can download right now. In no particular order, let's begin.
Draw Something. This app really is incredibly fun and popular. You take turns drawing one of three words, meanwhile your opponent has a selection of letters to help them narrow down their guess. Due to the rather laborious nature of drawing, it can at times be rather slow. This is combated by being able to have several games going at the same time. It's perfectly suited to anyone that wants a cheap app that will waste hours of your life with mindless drawing.
Pinterest. I love this app, it's fast becoming the one of the best new social networking apps without any of the flaws. It's also extremely simple. The idea behind it is to basically share pictures you like and attach them to your own virtual Pinboard. It can either be your own photos or found on the internet. Similar to Tumblr but without the teenage angst. Moreover, using the search function it makes it very easy to find like minded individuals that you can follow in a matter of moments.
Instagram. If you have an Iphone you will almost certainly be aware of Instagram. Instagram allows the user to add a wide range of filters to photos in your library. The most popular filters seems to have a vintage effect that is very prominent now. Making your photographs look like they were shot with an old film lens rather than your Iphone. furthermore, you can easily upload and share your photos with your friends via Facebook, tumblr, Pinterest and twitter. The final icing on the cake for this great app is that it's completely free.
Plants vs Zombies. This is my favorite app by far. You can literally waste hours upon hours playing this fantastic game, i know i have. Basing itself on the structure of a simple tower defense game (something that is already flooded with competitors) this game has the charm to set itself above the rest. It's captured the attention of every level of gamer, whether you're the casual gamer waiting for the bus or the hardcore gamer wanting your next fix this game is for you. Forget Angrybirds, there's a new kid in town.
Shazam. This is one of the better music apps on the market. Shazam can identify songs by listening to them for a short amount of time. Merely hold up your Iphone to the source of the music, wait a few seconds while the app trawls through its large database for a matching song and it should identify it for you. It's perfect for when you have to know the name of a song when you normally can't find the information quickly enough. one drawback it seems is that even though it does have such a large database it really isn't feasible to have every song in the world on it. naturally there will be gaps in its knowledge.
Comics. This really does offer something different for the common procrastinator. Tired of playing games but still want to prolong doing actual work? well this probably for you. Comics allows the user to extensively explore a wide selection of comics from many large publishers, Such as Marvel, DC and many others. Over 12,000 in fact can be bought and downloaded and over 500 are free! There are a lot of classics in there as well. To further seal the deal, Comics is a free app, which obviously is a great deal.
Remote. This is a handy app that allows the user to connect through their iTunes from their Iphone onto their Mac or PC. You can use it as a remote to access your entire iTunes library which would be ideal for parties or gatherings.
Geocaching. Here you can be a part of one of the largest treasure hunts with your family and friends by becoming a Geocacher. explore for hidden treasures across the globe with an ever expanding community. for the relatively low price of £6.99 you can open up a world of discovery.
Dropbox. This will greatly increase anyones productivity. you can access your images, documents any manner of files anywhere. it is essential if you work on the go as you can quickly explore all your files remotely and easily for free. moreover, it makes it incredibly easily to share large file sizes or multiple files with others just as easily.
Dragon Dictation. This app is very intuitive and can instantly transcribe your spoken word into text quickly and problem free. it has apparently been proven to be five times quicker than using a keyboard and seems to be best used for short amounts of texts such as your facebook status, tweets or quick notes. A very practical app that's useful and free.
