Your brain has the ability to process information at godlike speeds of about 268 miles per hour (the top speed of a Bugatti Veyron!). In more practical scenarios, you often get an idea at times when you’ve least expected it to hit you - at work, at home, while travelling anywhere! With so much information being generated, the need for keeping track of your thoughts and ideas someplace safe and secure is inevitable. Enter Any.DO – your to do and task list app.
This note taking app is blazing quick and has a simplistic user interface which makes it all the more fun and easy to use. You can quite literally speak your mind as the app has voice recognition enabled. It also syncs with Google Tasks so seamless integration over multiple devices and platforms is possible. The app also allows users to share their data with colleagues and friends for better planning and task management.
So, how does it make your life easier? In the middle of something important and have a world changing idea? Pause and tell Any.DO. Need a reminder to go pick up your wife from the airport? Tell Any.DO. Have a personal target for tomorrow or this week? Simply pen it down and let the app worry about reminding you to finish it.
How much did you spend on your food last month? Did you spend a lot on gifts this Diwali - how much? How much of your savings did you splurge on clothing? If you can answer the above questions in a jiffy, you either have a super computer of a brain, or you’re a miser. Either way, with expenses increasing, keeping track of finances has been one of the biggest challenges to man in recent times. Say hello to iWallet - your smarter money management system.
This application lets you record your expenses with a few taps. You can categorize your spendings, analyze them and create budgets.

The mind and body yearn for peace. But in today’s crazy crazy world, man has forgotten to keep touch with the basic essentials of life. As cliché as it may sound, there’s a reason why health comes first in healthy, wealthy and wise. With Pocket Yoga, you have a personal yoga instructor wherever you go. This app shows you instructions and images for different yoga poses and guides you through the entire course.
So, how does it make your life easier? For starters, yoga helps you release the intense anxiety and stress you put your mind and body through. With all those features packed into an app, you can now practice it in a quiet zone in your office, your balcony or your nearby park or garden. There’s no stopping you from your peaceful life now!
Food, Another important aspect of your life - because you are what you eat, right? Nobody wants to look like a jackfruit anyway! This recipe app lets you discover new recipes, save your original recipes in the cloud and cook great food - with detailed instructions. Over 70,000 recipes means you’ll never get bored of your food.

Secondly, it helps you plan your food habits - what’s good and what should be avoided in an orderly yet fun fashion.

We’ve got so much overloading in our lives that we’d all love to have personal assistants. Vlingo is one such voice-powered assistant that can make your life easier. While driving, running, working or even when you’re too lazy to type on the phone – Vlingo lets you send emails, texts, call people, search the web, update statuses, get answers to questions – giving you a handsfree experience.
One instance where the app should really come handy is when you’re driving. The app has an integrated in car option that lets you wake up the voice system by simple saying Hey Vlingo. The automated assistant lets you call, text, navigate and even speak incoming messages. Now, that’s one free assistant that’ll do exactly what you want it to do.
