All of us has got that one app we simply can’t live without.
It’s always fun to explore new apps and get suggestions from your friends. I asked a few of my colleagues about their favorite apps. Here’s what makes them tick and keep them glued to their screens, while improving their quality of life:
Favorite App: Tinder
Why: Tinder is a location-based social app. This app is great for meeting new people. It is an app which allows me to meet new people with the same interests as me. Users will only know I like their profile if they like mine back, which prevents any awkwardness and unwanted stalkers. Although your fate of meeting someone special majorly depends on the quality of your profile photo, it’s still a great app!

Favorite App: MeetMobile
Why: Meetmobile is a useful mobile application which let’s me check swimming events, meet up with fellow fans and coaches. It provides me with real-time information, results and scores.
Favorite App: Houzz
Why: When revamping and making renovations to your home, Houzz is a great app. It allows you to save, share and envision ideas. It provides you with the tools and information you need to complete your next home decorating adventure.
Overall it’s very user-friendly and just plain awesome!
Len van Zyl
Favorite App: Steam
Why: Steam is a gaming platform which allows users to play games from any Windows or iOS machine. Easy to use and safe.It has great overall design and layout.
Favorite App: Flycut
Why: This is apps lets you copy and paste more effectively. You can copy up to 40 different things and the choose which of those you want to paste. We all can benefit from this more often than not.
Favorite App: The Modern Day Browser
Why: It allows me to consume multi-media content from various sources. It is a highly customizable application that isn’t limited to any platform and is universally supported. It has a rich extension framework aimed at developers but can be used by the novice and intermediate without any knowledge of programming at all.
It is my window into the digital world, without it we would be nowhere.
Favorite App: HemingWay App
Why: It’s a web-based app which helps you to write the best pieces of text imaginable. (There’s a desktop version available as well) It rates your level of readability, highlights the passive voice parts which needs some editing, helps you out in the case of adverbs and when a simpler word can be used. It also checks spelling and grammar. So, every email I send out can be error free.
Hendri de Wet:
Favorite App: StatsBar for Mac
Why: It let’s me check my Mac’s current status such as memory space available, connectivity, CPU usage and even my battery health. It’s really a nifty app for people who spends most of their day working on a Mac. You can customize your dashboard to see only the stats you are interested in monitoring.
I think all of these apps are worth checking out. What’s your lifeline in the app world? Tell us in the comments.
