Three Android Apps that Make Life a Little Easier

In a rather short time, Android has become one of the most popular and widespread Smartphone operating systems around today. It seems that just about every person has a Smartphone device sitting in their pockets, although, with the endless number of snazzy complex apps around, very often people seem to ignore the simpler, yet extremely useful, applications that are waiting for you. We all know where to find pictures of cats doing funny things, or how to turn your phone into some top mobile casino. We all know about the pleasures of flinging kamikaze birds into unsuspecting evil pigs, or jumping and sliding through obstacles in order to escape the dreaded Temple. But what about the more practical features, that will help you in your daily life? Here are three perfect apps to make your life a little easier.

Super-Bright LED Torch

Besides the pain of stepping on a LEGO, bashing your shin or foot on some solid object in the early hours of the morning, is definitely up there on the pain-meter. We often find ourselves in situations where we need light, although are unable to find it. Sure, you can carry around a torch, although how often do you have a torch in your pocket, compared to how often you have your phone in your pocket? Thanks to this simple, and free, app, your phone can be transformed into a torch. Many newer Android devices already have this “assistive light” feature built in, although if yours doesn’t, problem solved!


This extremely useful and cross platform app essentially allows you to carry a mini radio DJ in your pocket. With a simple click of a button, it can let you know everything there is to know about the song that is playing. All you need to do is allow the microphone to gather a short sample of the song, which it then compares with the central database in order to return the answer. The best part of this app is that it then stores the details of every song that it has sampled. This makes it easy for you to take to YouTube at a later stage and play it again.

Splashtop Remote Desktop

Ever been away from your computer and found yourself in the desperate situation where you really need to access some information that is on it? Thankfully, this is now a problem of the past. Splashtop quickly and easily allows you to connect remotely to your computer from anywhere. All you need to do is install the Splashtop Streamer onto your computer, and you’re ready to roll!
