Pocket App for Mobile and Desktop

Lot would have already been discussed about this app / Plugin (Pocket – http://getpocket.com/) formerly called ReadItLater. This is an amazing app that keeps my reading websites across devices.

I have this in my Firefox plugin as an Addon in my laptop. As I visit new website which grabs my attention, I add that in the Pocket reading List. I have installed the android version in my mobile. So on the go what ever website I have added in the reading list before I continue reading it. When I use my IPad I continue with the same reading list.

It is also has a offline viewing feature. Were the website is downloaded for offline viewing when there is no Internet connection.

ubiquitous computing at its best!!

Camscanner for mobile

Gone are the days where we use a scanner for scanning a document for softcopy. Things have changed. If you are using a smart phone or tablet, let it be Android or IOS, Camscanner will replace your scanner.

i have been using in my smart phone and IPAD. It works like a charm!

The way it identifies if it is a photo or document is excellent. It adds magic colour to the document.

It can even process OCR.

It has lot of options of saving/sharing the scanned document. You can convert the document into a image or pdf. It also has options of sharing it through email, fax it or share it to any free upload facility website.

Here is a sample document that was scanned.

You can use this for scanning your day to day bills, prescriptions, documents for filing and what not.

It also allows to save it as pdf.

Daily Android Apps

If you are using a android phone, then there are quite a lot of good free apps available.

Facebook

This is one of my personal favorites, Very minimalistic, but has all the functions needed. I have stopped using Facebook (Desktop Version)

LinkedIn

Quite good, but lacks functionalities compared to desktop version, but still good to connect with your professional network on the go.

Google Reader

A very good app and very close to the desktop version. Right & Left swipe are cool.

Evernote

A very good noting app. You can take Text as well as Voice notes.

Drop Box

File sharing app, Instant synching of files from different channels.

Gmail

Apps for Gmail Desktop version, The only disadbantages is you need to refreshing (Synching) to get the latest emails. But over all very good app. Sending email with attachments is super easy.

Angry Birds

Popular App for gaming. A very good stress buster. Time killer.
