“Nifty” doesn’t even begin to describe our picks for some of the best utility apps. We’ve got phone finders, battery savers, taxi snatchers and even an app that repels mosquitoes. Yup, the power of technology is astounding.
Be prepared to add some new tools to your app arsenal. The best utility apps take ordinary tasks and make them extraordinary. Take a phone call, for instance. With the right communication apps, such as Sidecar or Skype, you can turn regular calls into more personal, visual interactions, making business trips away from the family much more manageable.
These useful apps also make the act of purchasing—whether you’re buying dinner at a restaurant or indulging in a new pair of shoes—much more manageable. With helpful calculator apps, you can quickly determine the correct tips and discounts to be applied to your bill. Don’t forget to shop around with handy coupon apps so you can locate the best price on a particular item.
At the very least, we urge you to download a battery-saving app, the most popular type of utility app on The Recapp. What’s the point of downloading other apps when you don’t even have enough data on your device to use them? Battery savers such as Android Booster and GreenPower premium let you know how much juice your phone is using, and they offer helpful tips to make the most out of your device.
