In one of our previous blog posts, we looked at A-Zs of start-ups making a difference in the world. Now, we would like to take a look at the different types of apps revolutionising our lives and making our everyday tasks and activities easier.
Connecting People Around The World
Ever since the introduction of Facebook, meeting and connecting with friends and family across the globe has never been easier. As long as they have a Facebook account, one is able to connect with them whenever and wherever they are with just a few clicks.
What if your soul mate is just a click away? That is what Tinder is all about. With just a swipe left or right, it is faster and easier to meet up with your potential life partner.
Want to call your friends or relatives abroad but the overseas calls are too expensive? WhatsApp solves the problem by using your Wi-Fi or existing data usage to make calls and send text messages.
Making Professional Photography Easy
With the introduction of Instagram, taking and editing photos using various filters have never been easier. Once you have taken a photo, just use the various filters available to change the look of your photos and voila! You have just become a professional photographer!
De-clutter & Sell
Have loads of items in your house but can’t bear to just throw them away? Post it up on Carousell and sell it to others who might have a use for your items. It’s like they say, “One man’s junk is another’s treasure”.
Discounts & Savings
Groupon has a huge repertoire of discounts and savings available for users to choose from. Ranging from Travel to Food & Beverage, getting the best deals and discounts has never been easier.
Travel & Transportation
Technically not an app, but it is still one of the most used mobile applications on Earth. With this application, one is able to get anywhere without the fear of getting lost.
Plan on travelling to another country for a vacation? Not sure which sites offer the best deals on flights? Just go to Skyscanner where it will scan all the sites and compile it all on one site for you to compare. These apps demonstrate that technology has truly made our lives so much more convenient and enjoyable—from connecting with people to travelling around the world all with just a click of a button.
