Apps have become our lifeline. In today’s world, they make or break our day-to-day life. Be it laundry, buying products online, or even getting food delivered to your doorstep, we can all agree on one aspect – without apps, our lives would be a heck lot harder.
With this in mind, here are the top five apps that are a must-have in your mobile repertoire.
Simpl lets you pay your bills, shop online, buy medicines and supplements, and even book movie tickets instantly. You just pay a consolidated bill for all your transactions after 2 weeks from the date of your last purchase. For example, if you spend Rs.5000 from the 20th to the end of the month, you will have to pay by the 10th of the next month. It even lets you pay your internet, broadband, and mobile bills. The credit limit is increased gradually as you continue making repayments on time, with the starting limit being Rs.1500 for new users.
Want to buy a laptop or a smartphone but don’t have the cash to spare? Why not go to Kissht?
Kissht lets you buy electronics, products, and anything you want without opting for EMIs through a bank. You get a Kissht-approved card which you use for shopping online, and the app supports various online and offline merchants, including big players like Flipkart, Amazon, Prestige, Playmart, and more.
Go Uber. We recommend Uber for sharing rides via carpooling or for booking solo rides. Sure, Ola is a local cab aggregator service, but Uber is not just restricted to India. If you’re travelling abroad and need a cab, Uber is your best friend. It supports vehicles like hatchbacks, SUVs, Sedans and many more. They even have a food delivery service called Uber Eats that delivers meals across cities.
Don’t want to pay extra charges for making voice calls? Try out Viber.
It lets you send videos, images, documents, and call your friends online using a 3G or WiFi connection. It doesn’t use a lot of mobile data and is popularly used worldwide. There is also a desktop app and free calling is available between Viber users.
5. Polaris Office
Polaris Office is a new kid on the block. It’s free, open-source, secure, and premium subscriptions cost way lesser than MS Office, starting at $3.99 a month. If that’s not enough to convince you, you’ll be happy to realize that it’s UI is a lot lighter and it’s the ultimate productivity suite with Dual UX Support.
Cloud storage is enabled which means you can edit docs on the fly using your SmartPhone, tablet, and PC, and seamlessly sync between devices. It supports storage on different Cloud services like Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, and has its very own cloud service known as My Polaris Drive. It doesn’t eat up a lot of your PC’s or Smartphone’s physical resources when compared to the Microsoft products which are a huge plus.
