Top 10 apps

Apps by categories2

Hello CCC Members:

For my January presentation, I will be talking about the best smartphone apps to start off the new year.

Did you get a new phone for Christmas? After you set it up, the next step is to download the apps. The challenge is finding the cream-of-the-crop apps that truly take advantage of all that an iPhone or Android phone has to offer. I have put together a list of some of the best apps. You will find a bit of everything: top 10, news, finance, cloud storage, reading, photo editing, travel, etc. I use most of these apps so I can give you an insight from a user's perspective.

Where Can You Find Apps?3

App Store, Google Play, or just Google it!

In Google, type:4Apple:ios Skyscanner

Android:android Skyscanner

iOS and Android5Q: What's the Difference Between an iOS app and an Android app?

A: There is really no difference between the two. Some apps are only available on one platform. It boils down to your phone preference.

Before we get started6Most of apps here require an account.Suggestion: try them on the web first or create an account with a disposable email address (use Gmail)

Try different apps and pick your own. Many apps come with additional benefits via your account. Also, the apps mentioned here are for smaller screen sizes.
