iPhone users looking to lose a few kilograms will find healthy eating and fitness apps available in the Apple App Store, where all their mobile apps can be located. Going to the market becomes infinitely easier when your mobile app has created a list of the best foods for you. Not sure how much you should run in the morning? There are mobile apps that can mathematically figure that out for you based on your personal health factors. Still not enough? Nearly all the weight loss programs have created a mobile app for themselves. Getting fit gets easier when the mobile apps on your smartphone are leading the way.

Mobile apps can also make life a bit more entertaining. The popularity of mobile app games can be overwhelming. One popular game created for iPhone, Angry Birds, was in such high demand that the creators developed a version for Android phones as well. The mobile app is so popular that it partnered with an American film to release a special version of the game. Blackberry may find that the mobile app games developed for Android and iPhone are not available for Blackberry, as most Blackberrys are not touch-screen phone. Many will say that the best smartphone for gaming is the iPhone.


Mobile apps don t have to be productivity-sucking games. Some mobile software development companies focus on creating mobile apps for the sole purpose of increasing your productivity. If you find yourself without a pad and paper, which is not unusual, the mobile app Evernote exists to aid you in efficiently taking notes. You can take notes, pictures or voice recordings and send everything back to your computer when you re done. The best news? Evernote exists on most mobile app platforms. Catching up on the news or stocks is easy, too, because most major newspapers and news websites have created a mobile app. It s easy to find out the news of the day without having to tear through a newspaper.

Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Foursquare and all the social networking sites you can imagine have mobile apps as well. These mobile apps function just as the site does on your computer. Check in, check out, see pictures, and tell the world what you re doing but this time from your phone. While the sites have official apps like Twitter for Android there are mobile apps built by third party mobile app development companies as well, unaffiliated with the site. These are frequently free though ad-supported.

Mobile apps on your smartphone may seem like silly little details, but can be and frequently are integrated in day-to-day life. Health, fitness, shopping, work and anything else you can think of can be assisted by smartphone mobile apps… apps are here to stay!

Clicking around on your smartphone looking for sports updates or the weather isn t a simple function of your phone, it s a mobile app. Every useful tool, silly game and random gadget that you download for your smart phone is considered a mobile app. These mobile apps are changing the way people live on a regular basis from work, fitness to fun, but are they helping to make any of our lives easier, more fun or more productive?
