I am not a single smartphone guy, and use every mobile OS, so I get the chance to try out lots of applications. We now find hundreds of thousands of apps, and it can be difficult finding new ones to try. This is the first instalment of a planned weekly smartphone app wrap gallery, where I'll post some thoughts on new and useful mobile apps, along with representative screenshots from those apps.
Mobile operating systems today are quite advanced, and come with lots of integrated apps and utilities. A lot is written about mobile applications and how many are available for each platform. I am guilty of installing something like 50 apps on my devices, but then using just five to 10 on a regular basis.
Remember The Milk
I have been looking for a good task list application that works across mobile platforms, and for a while I was using Wunderlist. They then updated the service and dropped Windows Phone support so I had to look elsewhere. I discovered Remember The Milk, and dove in to using it as soon as the latest Android version was released that offered a slick UI.
I love the way you can quickly filter your tasks on the left side, and then swipe back and forth to interact with the app.
I have about seven weeks until my next half-marathon, and after RunKeeper support appeared on my Pebble smart watch, I installed the latest version of RunKeeper on my HTC One.
RunKeeper is a powerful fitness application, and last year I signed up as an Elite member so I could do even more with it online. It works well on Android, and tracks just about everything I could want.
My family loves to go to the movies, and a local AMC theater near us has premium leather recliners with the ability to pick your seat before you get to the theater. With Iron Man 3 kicking off last weekend, and many more great movies coming soon, I find the AMC Theatres to be an essential app.
