With the convenience of no advertisement breaks, people have started watching the content of Netflix more than television. The vast variety and a user-friendly platform have caught the attention of the youth. 

5. HealthifyMe


It has been found by some researchers that 80% of our body is made up of what we eat and do not exercise. Work, Eat, sleep, repeat has made us turn our backs to our unhealthy routine. Absentmindedly hogging on the food has become the new normal.

To keep yourself fit and eat consciously, this app is a person’s savior. Just add all that you have consumed in a day and it will calculate the calorie intake of the person. After which you can decide based upon your goal what food you need to uptake to achieve your desired goal.

8. Splitwise


This is a life-saver if you have a huge group of friends and you hate calculations. Imagine going on a trip to Goa with a group of friends.

All of you spend money as and when required but now think of sitting down and calculating each person’s share at the end of the trip. It will be a mood spoiler and a tough task to do.

Instead, just add all the expenses paid by anyone and everyone, and don’t worry about the calculations. This app will simplify debts between individuals and give you a consolidated data which will tell you who owes how much to whom. Isn’t it a dream come true?

9. Inshorts


In this busy lifestyle where we don’t have enough time in the morning to start our day reading a newspaper, this app comes in handy.

It will keep you up-to-date with all that is going around you in the form of a short and concise paragraph about each topic. With the option to customize your feed, and a variety of news genres, this app will help you keep you on your toes. 

10. Kindle

Carrying a book around is not possible at all times. But having a book to read without having to carry it physically can be a blessing.


This app provides you access to more than 1 million books. Imagine reading a book and unconsciously closing it without putting a bookmark, it might take you several minutes to come back to the page you left last time, but kindle has an option of navigation mentioned at the bottom of the screen that lets you go back to the last read page instantly.

So if you like to read a book, a magazine or your daily newspaper, this app will come in handy. It has an in-built dictionary which will help you while reading and will make your reading experience much better.

It will help you read on various devices such as phone, tablet, or PC. It will help you save space in your house by not building up a huge stack of hard copies of the books. 


I hope this brief article will help you with the confusion that you might face organizing and using your phone. These were my top 10 picks but there are several other apps that one might need in their phone. I have not included the apps that you need for your cashless payments or your banking-related services because that depends on personal preference. Several social networking apps are also not covered in the article because that too depends on the preference of the individual.
