I love reading lists. I learned a lot from looking/reading other peoples lists. With that in mind, I would like to share my list of apps that I currently use:

Productivity

Evernote is a tool to help you remember anything (thats what their site says). You can write notes through this application and sync to all your devices via cloud. Great for note taking, research and writing. Its something like Microsoft OneNote if it was enabled with a cloud service and is multi-platform. Great interface, easy to use and best of all its free!

Wunderlist

An easy to use and pleasing to the eyes to-do list. It just works.

Pocket (formerly ‘Read it later’)

This app (along with Instapaper and Readbility) saves pages you come across on the internet for you to be able to read it later. Clean interface, available for iOS and OSX for free! (Has a few quirks that I don’t like though, you can read about it from my previous article)

Genius Scan

Noteshelf

Another note taking application. This one has security (password locking), customized notebook and paper material/template/look, drawing tools like pens and markers, image importing and smileys!

Day One

A beautiful journaling application with information displayed using a timeline, built in security and cloud functionality. If you like writing everyday, this is one app that you should get!

A shiny new toy! Lol. This one’s pretty neat. Its powered by twitter and is like a video version of Instagram. The app itself is user friendly, the idea and implementation is very nice.

Health and Fitness

iMuscle

Its actually a medical app to view muscles. How is it useful? Well, it has excercise recommendations for the muscles that you view and a section to build your workout regimen. Oh, and did I mention that the excercises shown are animated and in 3D?

Seconds Pro

A good interval training timer if not the best in the market right now. You can create you own timers for your routines or download ready made stuff from the interwebs. Worth the money!

There you have it. Do you use any of these apps? What are your experiences with these apps? Do you use apps that are not in this list that is worth checking out?  Write them down onthe comments section below.
