Ever since the introduction of smartphones, we have had those small inner dilemmas what app to install and if we will ever use it once we install it. And since we’re taking a lot of photographs and putting tons of music and videos on our devices, we could really use our storage, so it would be excellent if we didn’t download all those apps that we have no use for.
If you’re a guy, these are the apps that you should have on your phone. They cover all of the guy’s needs, and they will definitely make your life a lot easier.
Take a look:
For traffic and navigation
Of course, the first apps that you should install on your phone are the ones for traffic and navigation – especially if you’re an everyday driver. The most important thing that you should have is Google Maps (regardless of the phone you’re using – even iPhone users simply have to have this app on their phones). If you’re travelling somewhere, just make sure that you download the map of a certain destination and you will be able to use the map even offline, which can at times come extremely handy. Also, make sure that you have Navmii, which is a great app for traffic and navigation. What’s great is that it will always tell you which route is the quickest and best.
For looking good and feeling good
If you’re a gym rat, then apps that are fitness-oriented certainly have to find their way to your smartphone. One of the handiest ones that you should have is a free calorie counter (and there’s an excellent one with exactly that name so feel free to use it). Also, there are excellent apps for ready-made trainings that you can check out. Moreover, always have an app that you will use after the training. One such is the MindBeauty app, and even though it sounds girly, it’s definitely something that you need. You can book practically whatever you want here, so if you’re, for example, up for a relaxation massage in Hong Kong – this app will do the trick! You can also book sauna appointments near you, or anything else that will help you relax and calm those muscles after a good training. Definitely a must-have on your phone.
You’ve probably heard that Instagram is the most important social network of this moment, so maybe it’s high time you paid attention to the photos that you post there. There is a plethora of different apps you can use to make your photos look better, but take notice that VSCO is probably the most important one, and for a good reason. You can adjust the lighting and brightness of the photo, and also choose one of the numerous filters that will make your photo look stunning. Another app that can do this is Snapseed, so make sure to download both and see which one you like better.
For making someone happy
And we’re talking drinks and food, guys! Regardless of your sexual preferences, it’s always good to make your partner SO happy with a good cocktail and a good meal. One of the best things that you can have on your phone for this is the Mixology app that will tell you exactly how to make a great cocktail. It’s free and very much user-friendly, so you can bring that home-made Cosmopolitan on the table. As far as meals are concerned, there’s an even bigger choice of apps to download. For example, the best one would be the app called Jamie Oliver’s Recipes, which is free and helps you cook amazing dishes. However, if Oliver is not your cup of tea, there are other apps that are great for this.
And lastly, let’s not forget shopping. It’s a fact that guys hate shopping, so buying things from the armchair might just be what you need. If this is the case with you, make sure that you download Mr. Porter, an app that will help you browse through the catalogues of all your favorite retailers. Not only will you be able to order a piece of clothing or an accessory, but you will also be provided with many fashion-related tips and tricks (which perhaps you really need!) Another similar app that’s also great is ASOS, which features thousands and thousands of garments – from sports clothes to the smart ones.
Of course, there are hundreds of other apps that you can download, and feel free to do that – just make sure that you download the ones that are safe and that you know are good. The ones that are listed above are simply excellent – so make sure to have at least two!
