Promote Your Favorite App that No One Knows About

Doris Yee

You've probably installed and trialed countless mobile apps to either improve or simplify part of your daily routine. However, we're constantly bailing on what (in the end) is a useless app. Lets call attention to apps that work but people don't necessary know about. Comment below.

Waze is a traffic locator and recorder by the community. I use frequently in the city of Los Angeles to best dodge car jams.

    I LOVE Centrallo - a productivity / organization app that was released this month for iOS. Co-founder says it will be launched for Android in June. All text / links / photos / videos are searchable, easy to use hierarchical lists, a central inbox to send things to you account and organize into lists for later. Also an amazing sharing / collaborating component. Highly recommend those into organization to give it a shot!

    I love the free app Livemapp! It has an awesome community of regulars posting pictures from all around the world. It's a cool way to show what's cool and interesting about where you live and to see the same thing from people that live in other places. I love that discussions that some pics have brought up and also just seeing daily life in places I would love to visit one day. It's a great mash up of the good pats of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I've added many places to my bucket list because of this app.

    After moving to San Francisco from Delaware last year, I've been using this app Ink to send greeting cards directly from my Droid (also on available on iPhone) to the mailboxes of my friends and family. In under a minute, I can select a design, personalize with my own mobile photo, type a message, and it arrives in my loved one's mailbox in about 4-7 days. It's only $1.99 to send which includes postage, and its convenience sure beats a trip to the drugstore! My mom absolutely LOVES receiving these from me!

      That is super cool. I love anything that turns digital into physical.

    My favorite app is Free2Work, which rates my favorite brands as to their efforts to address slavery and other labor abuses in their supply chains. Free2Work provides consumers with information on forced and child labor for the brands and products YOU love. Check it out and make your money count!

    Food On the Table. Shows you what's on sale at your local grocery store. Lets you search and save recipes, & add your own. It saves meal plans and automatically sends ingredient list. If it had a calculator and a scanner it'd be perfection. Today I used it in combination with newspaper coupons and saved $28.00 on a $104.ransaction

    • Douglas Sellers

      Awesome! I will definitely check that out.

    My current favorite app is Tapscape. They break smartphone, gadget and mobile tech news and provide reviews of the latest in apps and games for iOS and Android.

    My favorite new app is livemapp ( and it rocks. It's a app that has allowed me to travel the globe through my phone. Livemapp is all about posting what's going on around you, whether it's a cool restaurant, museum, park, street art, regular art, and everything else in between. It was a cool and interactive global community that loves seeing life and how it's lived in other parts of the world. I plan to go on some extended travel in the next 2-3 years and daily on livemapp I'm seeing new places that I want to visit.

    I swear by TeuxDeux for lists, but now I want to check out Clear! Can never have too many lists.

    • Doris Yee

      I feel like i haven't found an ideal to-do list tool for mobile on Android yet. Wish Clear was available for non-Iphoneys.

    I use Power Note all the time. It is a bookmarking and note-taking app. You also can save images from the web and take notes by speech. What's awesome is that you can access your bookmarks and notes anywhere. Power Note is powered by Diigo, a web highlighting (highlight excerpts of web articles and save it online) and bookmarking service where you can share what you find. I haven't used it's collaborating capabilities yet but it looks promising. And if you want you can choose to have public or private notes/bookmarks. Also it's great for organizing notes and making lists by using tags (which I don't use too much) but it helps when looking for specific notes from a long time ago.

    I've been using it for over a year now and I haven't had any complaints about it. It has served me well.

    Wow, I feel like I work for them giving all that info.

  • AutismMan11

    I have 2 that I use quite a bit. Live Binders & SymbalooEDU. Live binders is a great tool for collaboration. SymbalooEDU or Symbaloo is an icon based bookmarking app.

      • AutismMan11

        No, unfortunately, Live Binders is only available for the iPad.

  • Hillary Newman

    I love this question because I'm always on the lookout for new apps! Looking forward to giving Clear a shot.

      • Hillary Newman

        Gifboom is fun for making gifs. And I am trying to get into Lift, but haven't really used it that much.

  • Renee Solorzano

    Clear is my fav app for making lists. The design is beautiful and so intuitive.

    I also use Pocket frequently, no idea how popular it is. When you find something on the web that you want to read later, save it to Pocket, and it automatically syncs with your phone/tablet. It's great for catching up on articles that you are dying to read but don't have the time for.

    • Doris Yee

      I have Pocket on my Android was and was going to uninstall. I haven't found myself opening it up a lot. The one feature I absolutely love about it is whenever you copy a URL to your clipboard, Pocket - whenever you open it up next - will automatically ask you if you want to save it there? Love that intelligence.

    I'll introduce 'wechat', which is the most popular chatting app used by Chinese. You can 'look around' to see who is nearby you with the measure of distance; you can shake your phone to find the one who is shaking at the same time; you can sent voice/picture/video clips to your friends... Try it!

    • Doris Yee

      Can strangers initiate a conversation with you? It feels like a potential case of stalkers united.

      • Justin Jia

        They need to send friend request first, they can't send you msgs until you accept it.

      • Justin Jia

        No, they have Eng version, which is the one I'm using for now.

  • Jack Lyon

    Figure from Propellerheads is fun. It's a little $1 music app that allows you to create goofy little music loops in just a few seconds.

  • Ryan MacInnes

    I love clear, which is super simple and pretty to-do lists. I don't think it's too terribly unknown though.

  • Douglas Sellers

    I am a big fan of NetBot, the client. Super simple way to connect to the community (which is almost all developers at this point).
