#2. SwiftKey

#5. Dark Sky

dark sky app will save your life weather app

So I’m usually not the type to go out of my way to pay for an app, and I’m betting the house that you feel the same. But, and this is a MAJOR BUT, sometimes an app is revolutionary enough to dip into that savings account you’ve been hiding away. For instance, most weather apps I’ve used in the past are downright boring, and are kind of a toss up of whether you’ll get accurate information. Dark Sky is that once in a lifetime, revolutionary solution I mentioned a minute ago. Plus this one might actually save your life…

#6. Wunderlist

Wunderlist will save your life to-do list app

I’m going to be honest here, I just like the name of this one. It’s reminiscent of Wanderlust and that’s good enough for me. A+ for branding app creator guy. Basically, Wunderlist is a standard to-do list app, but it’s one of the only available apps in this category which don’t look overly-professional or robotic. There’s an old saying in web design & car sales that goes something along the lines of “it’s all about the polish, man!”

  • Beautiful colors in the background. Easy to use. Tons of to-do list tracking features!

#7. Pocket

#8. SoundCloud

This is a personal favorite of mine! Sometime waaayyyyyy waaaaayyyy back in 2013 I started to get bored of hearing the same songs over and over on Pandora radio and Spotify. That created the need to explore the SoundCloud universe, and most of us haven’t looked back since. Forunately, SoundCloud is a music streaming app that connected BOTH underground and mainstream artists around the world. Its reach is still growing and growing, leaving you lots of tunes to check out and fall in love with!
