15 of the best mobile apps of lifestyle that must have

1. Get The Flight Out

Category: Travel

If you ever need to fly home for a family emergency or just want to be spontaneous, you’ll probably need to book a flight at the last minute. Get the Flight Out, affectionately nicknamed “GTFO” (which usually has a slightly more aggressive meaning), it lets you type the name of an airport and see the next available flights to destinations anywhere in the world. It’s a quick way to view and access all your options in one place.

So the app is once you connect with your city airport:

Have you ever dreamed to ask your computer or mobile device to do something very, but very specific? For example, send an email when a new file in your Dropbox, or send a message with the local weather forecast every morning at 6.00.

I have good news: there is an app called “IFTTT” or “If This, Then That” (if … then …) with which you can create almost the command you can think of. In short, IFTTT allows you to set triggers for different events. For example, instead of spending a lot of time manually checking the news or your social networking accounts, you can be alerted to things that really matter.

The striking thing about this app is its simple configuration. The main screen guides you through the setup and lets you choose the first part of your statement, “If …” and then the second part, “then …”, or what happens when a trigger is triggered.

This is the statement “If …”:

3. Yahoo Weather

Category: Weather

There are hundreds of my time; iPhones even have a default time app. So, why you should take a moment to download Yahoo Time?

Yahoo Weather is one of my most beautiful design and easier to use than ever. It provides more information than typical weather apps, but understands the order in which the information will have more value to the user.

The app shows a beautiful image of the area (taken from Flickr) and provides hourly weather, the forecast for the week, a map, chances of precipitation, wind speed and pressure ratings, departure times and sunset sun, among other things. You can add more locations and then slide easily from one location to another. It is one of those apps that anyone can use without reading instructions.

4. Swarm

Category: Travel

Anyone who knows me knows I love to check in at different places on my phone. When Foursquare was divided into Foursquare Swarm and in 2014, at first I was scared. Then I realized that these two apps significantly improved my experience to record visits (SWARM) and explore new places (Foursquare).

Swarm is an app of “daily record” that lets you connect with family and friends and record the sites you visit regularly. While the user logs on Foursquare locations like him and his friends, Swarm gives you the opportunity to record visits in the types of sites that interest them.

For example, if I see my friends at the gym visits I recorded more times than I could calculate Swarm records in any physical activity center. It gives me the same information for restaurants and bars in general , rather than specific information about restaurants and bars where we always go. Warning: may increase the phenomenon known as FOMO (in English, “fear of missing out” or fear of missing something).

By launching Swarm 5.0 Swarm showed that continually improves on what we know about the typical routines of our friends. Here, I add my status updates and tagged friends

Mobile App Swarm

And here, I can see the profile of a friend with a map with all its records and trends based on the types of places that commonly visit:

5. Foursquare City Guide

Category: Food and drink

Foursquare no longer used for check in and share your location with friends. The new version of Foursquare was designed to help you explore new places in your current location.

Foursquare City Guide provides recommendations on places you do not know based on other users who you follow or topics that interest you. For example, if you specify that you like Thai food, Foursquare will always warns you when there is a Thai restaurant nearby.

Also, if you want to register a visit at one of the sites that you just met by Foursquare, you can access Swarm and you’ll have an integrated experience between the two apps.

All that happened to us we are enjoying a rich dinner with friends and suddenly the bill arrives. All hush and want to know how much money you owe. At that time it can take over an accountant friend or you can use Divvy.

No problem, you can easily separate dishes dragging items account to each person you select from your contact list. You can even add tax and tip.

8. Moovit

Category: Navigation

Let’s face it: public transport can be a convenient way to avoid driving and parking alternative, but not always work well. Often there are trains out of service, changes in programming or a bus line that always late, and this can turn your morning into a nightmare.

So there Moovit.

Moovit programming meets all trains, buses and subways that are close to you and shows you where they are and where they are going; even if there are delays in a particular route. It also shows you where they are on a map, how far are (in minutes) and how many stops would have to reach a certain destination.

Is there a faster way to get somewhere? Moovit can suggest it and show you where to go. The app adapts to the city where you are and continuously improved: it syncs with a new city every 15 hours.

This is what a user would see in Boston to follow a set of instructions:


And this is what he would see to verify programming a station:

9. Outlook

Category: Productivity

I guess you did not expect to include this lifestyle app. When Microsoft acquired a small calendar app called Sunrise in 2015, gradually merged everything I wanted this tool with its own mail and calendar tool. You know what was the result? A new and improved version of Outlook .

Outlook is a Microsoft mobile app that combines an inbox with a calendar of beautiful design that helps you organize your schedule by mail that you send and receive. From the main calendar view, you can see when you have meetings, with whom you will meet (with beautiful and practical photographs of their faces), where meetings will be held and even who confirmed attendance.

It also offers icons for keywords that you normally use to describe the type of event you are planning, so you can easily know how to be your week at a glance.

10. SwiftKey

Category: Utilities / Productivity

You’ve probably seen keyboards with touch screen where you can drag your finger from one key to another to form each word, instead of touching the letters individually. Combine this with a dose of artificial intelligence (AI) resulted SwiftKey.

SwiftKey offers keyboards that can touch or swipe identifying your speech and I suggest the next word. Believe it or not, help you write a lot less. You’d be surprised to see what the app features: for example, if you often write “Carla” and “Sofia”, eventually will suggest the word “Sophia” after write “Carla and”.
