5 Apps I can't live without

I use apps on all my devices, including my PC so this list is going to cover computers, iphone and android.  Trying to pick just 5 is difficult because I use anything that is fun and useful, anything that makes my life easier especially on the go. I use different apps to keep me entertained and my mind off pain if I feel ill, or I’m stuck waiting in a line/for an appointment so I like to have a range of things available.




Not in anyway related to facebook, FBReader is an app I have on my android tablet which lets me read any books or files regardless of file type. It’s free and means that if a book doesn’t come in kindle format I no longer need to avoid it. Great for uni pdf files as well and best of all, it’s free. You can pay for additional features but so far the free version has worked great for me. You can grab it at the Google Play store here.




HP Scan and Capture

When I got windows 10 (comments to yourselves please :P), my old (and I mean quite old) scanning program stopped working. I tried several different ones until I found this free one in the Windows store. Very simple and easy to use and works great. You can find it over in the Windows store.


Facebook Messanger

My fiance and I use Facebook messanger all the time. It’s just so much easier to send a message if we’re in different parts of the house, or if one of us is out and the other is at home. We also use it to leave notes for one another; for example, if one of us is out or asleep and has something to remind the other, we send a message. We’re guaranteed to see it the day. You can find it in the apple store, android store and so forth depending on what device you use 🙂 (Image credit: Talkandroid.com)




This is a very new addition to my list of apps and has very quickly jumped to this list. Latergram lets you set up and schedule instagram posts from your PC. That means you can use images on your PC and upload them to instagram – something that I love doing. I used to use another app for it but it died 🙁 Basically latergram sets up the post, but doesn’t post it for you. It sends the post to your phone/tablet as a notification and you then have to manually send it to instagram. So it’s not as perfect as it could be in that respect but still very user friendly. You can find out more over at the Later.com website.




Yes I am a Candy Crush addict 😛 I go through phases of addition to it, especially if I have studying or uni work to do. It is procrastination a bit, however, it also helps me focus and keep my mind sharp because I’m at the level where you things get really tricky. I find that it is important to have something like this, or a video game, to play in between studying/writing assignments so that my brain can relax a bit while still working. So yes, I have Candy Crush on everything (the original and spin offs, Soda and Jelly), as well as Heroes Saga, Royal Garden, Bookworm, Ruzzle Adventure and Plants vs Zombies lurking around for when I feel in the mood to play those too.


How about you? Are you apps strictly for one device? Or are they themed i.e. work/study related, travel, games etc. ?
