There are apps, and there are apps. Some are more important than others, but in the black hole of the app-filled universe, we pick out a few that have been used, experienced, and enjoyed by people we know.

If you’re that list person, take it to the next level with this app that lets you create shareable to-do lists, of any sort. Not only can you organise your life, you can send one to your spouse or flatmate reminding that it’s their turn to do the groceries or take out the trash. You can even have a conversation on your to-do lists with whoever you’ve shared it. Maybe this one can finally make task management enjoyable.

CityMaps2Go Pro

A must have if you travel a lot and don’t want to get a mobile or data plan wherever you go. The app downloads maps of major cities — offline, searchable and zoomable ones — so even if you can’t read the signs in the local language or are just plain lost, you can find your way around. For all of us who’ve been there and gotten lost, this is a much-needed blessing. With detailed maps and in-depth travel content, including attractions, restaurants and local nightlife, you’ll never have to carry a paper map again.


All those happening looking Whatsapp profile pics of your friends are courtesy this app. I can’t tell you the number of people who’ve reco’d it. Turning any ho-hum shot into a work of art, it has minimal but elegant processing options and is credited for those all those suddenly “moodier” looking photos on Instagram. So much so, there’s talk that VSCO Cam might just be the next Instagram! Another talking point is the app’s online photo gallery, Grid, which is curated and if your photos are good enough, they might just make the list.

Yoga Studio

One of those go-to apps if you’re into yoga. You can pick your level (beginner, intermediate, advanced) and the type of class you want (flexibility, relaxation, strength), and how much time you have available, and it custom-makes a class for you. The HD video makes for great viewing. So by giving you the freedom to practise yoga according to your ability and intensity, it makes the lifestyle accessible to everybody. This app may finally be your answer to inner peace!
