In the modern world, smartphones are an inextricable part of everyday life.
Just walking down the street, you’re bound to see quite a few people with headphones in listening to music, or with their faces turned down to look at a text or game.
But even with how integral phones are to the modern world, there are still some apps that people don’t take advantage of as much as they should. So here, we’re going to cover some of the most unique and useful apps that you ought to have on your phone.<
Kicking off our list is one that’s a little better known, but still useful and underappreciated.
Have you ever heard a song come on on the radio, sworn you knew what it was, but been unable to grasp the title from the tip of your tongue?
Alternatively, have you ever been at a bar where you’ve taken to a song being played but had no idea what it was called or who sang it?
Shazam is the perfect app for these situations. After listening to a song for a few seconds, the app draws from a massive list of almost every song in existence to come up with an answer.
It’ll be telling you within a few seconds what the song it’s hearing is, allowing you to expand your own music collection and enjoy it that much more. The app works so well that, as reported here, it was even acquired by Apple to work in coordination with Siri.
Ever wanted to be on a game show? Do you love and have an encyclopedic knowledge of all sorts of random trivia?
If so, HQ Trivia is the app you need. This twice-daily game show puts contestants to the task with a simple challenge: correctly answer 10 trivia questions straight (or sometimes more for certain challenges).
These trivia questions can get quite tricky, digging to the depths of all kinds of topics to keep winning from being too simple. And this is vital, really, because winners receive actual cash, despite the games being free to play.
Depending on the prize pool and a number of winners left after each game, you could be wrapping up a show with a few spare coins or a hefty chunk of cash.
But even if you don’t win, it’s fun to compete – particularly given that the app has expanded to include all sorts of themed quizzes aside from its core challenges, as well as occasional celebrity guest hosts (though a rival game is now putting celebrity hosts to use as well in an attempt to take over!).
