The Swiftkey 3 Keyboard:
Winner of the Most Innovative App at 2011’s Global Mobile Awards, the Swiftkey keyboard has shot up from one of the thousands of other keyboard Apps to the first choice in user-tailored keyboard design. The Swiftkey’s premise is simple: it gets to know you. It develops an understanding of the way you type over time, allowing for insanely accurate predictive text and an incredibly personalized dictionary. With constant ergonomic updates, huge numbers of colour schemes and themes and a spell check that gets better every time you use it, this is one App not to be missed.

WhatsApp:
The genius behind WhatsApp is in its prevalence. Currently available on all major platforms, including but not limited to Android, ioS, Blackberry and Symbian, WhatsApp is the ultra-interfacing instant messenger that everybody has been waiting for. Think Blackberry Messenger, but for everything.

Facebook:
No App list would be complete without the mighty Facebook. Since opening up to the world in 2006, Facebook has changed the way we interact with each other like nothing before. With over 1 billion users, Facebook has become the definition of social networking. Make a profile, post pictures, chat to old friends, update your status, the online translation of your life doesn’t get more complete than with Facebook.

Skype:
Skype is the logical next step of face-to-face calls on mobiles but offers it as a free, user friendly App for video calling people wherever they are in the world. Probably the most popular video chat App out there, a few extra reasons to download Skype include continually upgrading image/ sound quality, compatibility with Facebook and Hotmail and that it’s free to download.

TuneIn Radio Pro:
This App is not just a radio. It’s a radio that can tune into over 70,000 AM and FM channels. It’s a radio that can record and save transmissions to an Ipod with zero hassle. It’s a radio that has an incredibly accurate search, insane range and more nifty little features than you can count. Put simply, it’s the king of radios.

Spotify:
Another revolutionary, this time to the world of music. Forget CD’s, forget the Itunes Store, forget Youtube ads, Spotify makes everything about listening to music as easy as it should be. It’s free, it has a catalogue of just about every song ever recorded and it couldn’t be easier to navigate. Add to that friend’s recommendations, saveable playlists and a growing Spotify-App base and it’s easily the best music player App out there.

Angry Birds:
The seminal Android game of 2010, it seemed like at one point, everyone was playing Angry Birds. Combine simple, tactile, slingshot-a-bird-at-a-tower gameplay with cutesy graphics and hundreds of levels and you’ve got yourself the most addictive App of them all. 1 billion downloads can’t be wrong.Since its inception in 2008, Android has stormed the global market of smartphones and tablets and has revolutionized the way we work, play and use the internet.
