The first mobile phone I used was just that: a phone that I could use while on the move. It did have a calculator, snakes (the game) and a calendar, but not much else. When they launched mobile phones that could play he radio and had a built-in camera, I was overjoyed. It seemed to me that there was not much they could do with phones anymore; they could attach a Swiss knife, fit in a torch, or maybe shape it like a boomerang, but what else was left?
I happily realized that I was wrong once the field of mobile application development advanced at a searing pace and more and more innovative mobile applications flooded the market. At first I was not much interested in all these fancy applications; my attitude was: Do I need them? I dont think so.
But once I checked out an app store and was totally hooked. Now I cannot imagine my mobile without Facebook, Pandora, Evernote, Google Maps and YouTube player. The following are my five favorite applications.
Facebook: this application is available on all the smartphones and all Apple devices. Most of us are addicted to Facebook and its a great way to stay connected to friends and pseudo-friends. It also the leading mobile application; 200 million people have it on their phones. The mobile version is as easy to use as the one on the computers, once to get used to it.
Pandora: Are you listening to music while reading this article? Created by the custodians of the Music Genome Project, it is easily available on most of the smartphones. You can create radio stations that play a particular kind of music and you can further customize you station by giving thumbs up or down to the songs Pandora plays. Its simply amazing; only problem is you play it outside USA.
Google Maps: This is one application that makes me bless all those people doing mobile application development work. This application lets you store maps, see live traffic, gives your voice directions, lets you explore an area in 3D, allows you to share you location with your friends (also lets you see yours) and much more.
YouTube Player: Who wants to watch videos on the mobile phone? Thats what I thought too. Well, with YouTube players perfect resolution on almost all the phones everyone might get start watching videos on the phone. This application works very well with the phones and using the default streaming media.
Evernote: The undisputed king of note-taking. An example of really smart mobile application development, this application lets you snap a photo, speak your note, take screenshots, and type your note. It also makes your note searchable on the net. If youve taken a snap of a music DVD cover, Evernote will make the text on the DVD searchable!
