Apps that boosts your productivity….!
Smartphones and tablets powered by Android are the most popular across the world as they give users access to a host of free apps, e-books and games. While the Google Play marketplace has a large number of apps meant for entertainment, it also has a huge repository of apps that boost productivity.
Want to know what more you can do with your Android smartphone? Here are five must-have apps for a productive lifestyle.
1.AirDroid is a fast, free app that lets you wirelessly manage your Android from your computer browser. Transfer files between Android devices and computers. You can cut, copy, paste, search, rename or delete files on the microSD card, receive, send, forward or delete SMS messages.
Furthermore, you can install, uninstall, backup and search apps, as well as do batch processing. The same goes for managing your photos, contacts, clipboard and ringtones. If you are a music buff, you can play, search, upload, download, delete, or set as phone call, notification and alarm ringtones.
2. Addicted to newsfeeds? Then check out Feedly. This is a new way to browse the content of your favourite sites, RSS feeds, Tumblr blogs and online video channels. Instead of having to hunt down for information, feedly uses RSS to aggregate the contents of the news sites you like and deliver them as a fast mobile-optimised experience.
Feedly is an RSS news reader re-imagined for Android phones and tablets. It makes browsing faster: the content of your RSS feeds are transformed into pocket-sized ‘cards’ onscreen, which load very fast and are easy to browse through.
3.Splashtop is the easiest and fastest remote desktop app to access your Windows, Mac, or Ubuntu from your Android phone or tablet, anywhere, anytime!
Get full access to all your applications (for example office documents, email, full browser with Flash and Java support), PC or Mac games, videos (1080P), and documents on your computer over Wi-Fi or 3G/4G with intuitive touch experience (supporting Windows 8 gestures seamlessly).
4.This one should delight the serial note-taker in you. A simple notepad application, the new version has a send feature built in – just choose ‘text’ or ’email’ etc, and off you go! No note is sent before its time, and all your punctuation and spelling remains the way you want it. It is also useful for more than just taking quick notes.
Because each note is simply a text file in a folder, an entire hierarchy or outline of notes can be synchronised on an item-by-item basis with notes on a computer by simply connecting your Android phone as a USB drive and using a free utility such as ‘SyncToy’. Any text editor on your computer can then be used to update the same data.
5. Easily the most feature-filled Android-PC remote, Unified Remote is an app that turns your Android device into a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth universal remote control for your Windows PC. Control your favourite programmes, mouse, and keyboard.
Some of the features that the free version of this app includes are: Automatic server detection, single/multi touch mouse, hardware volume control, quick switch using swipe gestures and an auto-pause for media when you get a phone call.
