Your best Apps of 2014?

Oh yes… Messaging Apps! So many released this year…

I've tried a few of them as I'm keen to completely replace my SMS and Phone features(!) but the main issue I have is that I hardly ever know anyone using them, so end up with 5 apps installed, all with one person in them.

Yes, Google Now has been one of my favourites for a long time, you don't think of it being an App really and that is great design in itself.

Two I really like, both for iOS:

  • Sunrise, a beautiful calendar app. The desktop version is also great, though I've had a few issues where meeting invites weren't being sent out.

  • Workflow, sort of like Zapier or IFTTT for iOS. I mostly use it to make gifs from my photos, but it has a few more serious uses as well wink

Here's a nice tweet, posted two years from now:

Hehe to the tweet… wink

I tried Sunrise and liked the Android app (as opposed to desktop version) but found it a little data heavy and also I quite like (seeming to be one of the few) that liked the redesigned Google Calendar app, so switched back to that. Mainly because it was more like Sunrise!

I'm a app whore. On my ipad I download every free app in the app store. Regardless if I want it or not. Try most of them and delete most of them. Almost every single app becomes free at some point throughout each year. Of course once you download it its yours forever. I probably own half the app store by now.

I love "acorns" "humin" and "jelly" for iOS

Mobile Odin Pro, MS Office, AirDroid, CM Security AppLock Antivirus to name a few good ones

Yeah incredibly annoying!

Iam an iPhone user i always use the app named "uCIC" and i love this app i found the app to be helpful when iam in searching for visual content on matters that interest me.

I like Go Sms Pro. smile

Clash Of Clans is the best i waste so much time for it. sunglasses

SwiftKey Keyboard. I love the emojies smile

few of the best I used

Snowball Beta
Workflow
Photomath
Hyperlapse
WeTransfer
smile

I'm not familiar with any of those, @parks_daniel. Could you tell us in a couple of sentences what each is for and why you like it? A few details are always more interesting than a list with no information.

I loved Snowball until Lollipop came it and then it was rendered useless inmo.

WeTransfer also good smile

CAN WE TALK ABOUT LOLLIPOP!?

What a piece of crap that is. It's been driving me nuts, especially lately. My phone slows way down almost every day, restarting doesn't help because it remembers everything that was running but I do it anyway. And the other day, I restarted and got some message that said "Command not found" when my phone turned back on and was stuck on a screen with a dead android with red errors coming out of his chest. It eventually rebooted itself from that, but it was unresponsive during it.

I hate Lollipop so freaking much. It has been nothing but a headache since I got it and has made my phone unreliable.

I have a Nexus 5 btw.

Odd I also have a Nexus 5 and have had no real problem with Lollipop. It may be App incompatibilities, not sure.

I don't really use many apps, I've uninstalled the ones I use that don't come pre-installed and it really hasn't helped a thing.
