As we welcome the new year, we also welcome a lot of change in our lives. However, one thing will remain constant, and that's our obsession for technology, especially our smartphones. The only thing that might change could be the rate of how much we use it on a daily basis. If you think about it, a lot of new features are added to our devices often. New technology is introduced and new apps are rolled-out to keep us entertained or to improve our daily lives.
To welcome the new year, here are a few apps you should use to help you become a better person. We're sure self-improvement and productivity will fit quite well with your 2017 resolutions:
Nike Plus Run
If you don't have a Fitbit, then Nike's Running app is the perfect substitute. Though it won't be able to detect details such as your heart rate, it can track your speed, running time, and distance. You can also sync some of your personal music as you run. Watch the trailer here:
My Fitness Pal
Let's face it, you're not getting any younger, which is why you need to keep track of what you've been stuffing in your gut. Thankfully, apps such as My Fitness Pal are here to save the day. Just log in the food you've eaten and a dropdown box will automatically appear containing the brand and the calories of your meal.
File sharing apps such as ShareIt can easily track another person's phone if you want to transfer multiple files. Trust us, it's way faster than Bluetooth. Take note, the phone you're sending your files to should also have ShareIt installed.
Note taking has also become digital these days and let's admit it, it's still not easy to type in your messy thoughts. If you can't seem to organize your ideas, you might want to try using a note-taking app like Google Keep in order to give you a clearer grasp of your mental notes. Not only will you be able to access it in other devices where you're logged-in to Google, its layout is also cleaner than other note-taking apps. See it for yourself:
Give this photo-editing app a chance if you're not too satisfied with the filters that Instagram has to offer. Though it's not a high-speed photo editor, it certainly does the job with pretty amazing results. Watch this video to polish your photo editing skills:
If you're the paranoid type who just doesn't trust other messaging apps, you might want to give Telegram a try. Apparently, it's the safest messaging app out there. So, just how secure is it? Let's just say that this is the messaging platfrom that ISIS prefers to use. If you don't believe us, then check it out for yourselves.
