I have ranked these apps based on ease of use and availability and I am sure these apps will help you uncover your hidden brilliance. So here goes my list of favorite apps:


SCHEDULING APPS

APPOINTY


Is your business in a mess as you have to manage everything? Then this app will be a total game-changer for you!


Appointy is a simple, functional, and powerful app that makes scheduling super easy. It is one of the best scheduling apps for work. It allows you to accept appointments online, get integrated with social media, Google calendar, and automate emails/SMSes. Not only can you manage your business with Appointy but it also helps your business grow organically as you can create more lucrative offers, deals, and gift cards for your customers. Yes, all this with just ONE app!


No matter the size of your business, Appointy caters to everyone and there is a plan which will suit you for sure. Another great feature is that Appointy is really easy to set up and has a user-friendly interface design. The app also lets you customize it as per your preferences if you choose any of their pro plans! I loved the fact that I was able to change the color and theme of my calendar as per my current branding. Being able to add these little personal touches makes it really adaptable and flexible for its customer. So next time you walk out of the house, you will be completely stress-free as Appointy's got you covered!


EASE OF USE: EXCELLENT. AVAILABILITY: IOS AND ANDROID.


LAST PASS


Do you sign into Facebook with your Twitter password and it locks you out? Just can't remember passwords anymore? Last Pass is the best solution to your problem as it is your personal password organizing companion! The app claims that it helps in putting all your passwords on auto-pilot leaving you worry-free. This is the main reason for it being so convenient and easy to use.


It has some really cool features like a strong passwords generator which automatically sets an unhackable password for you saving you a ton of time and effort. Last Pass also enables you to keep your financial passwords, bank details, and credit card details safe and secure with just a click. You can store up to 1 GB of secure documents and notes on it. Last Pass has a wide range of plans and all plans help you in building a custom dashboard which makes it easier to find things. I highly recommend that you make Last Pass your password protector and manager now!


EASE OF USE: VERY GOOD. AVAILABILITY: IOS AND ANDROID.


AUDIOBOOKS APP

AUDIOBOOKSNOW


AudiobooksNow is like Disneyland for a bibliophile. Audiobooks allows you to carry on your day to day tasks while simultaneously being able to dive into the next book on your reading list. It has recently found it's groove and carved out space for itself in the saturated audiobooks app market.


AudiobooksNow has come out with a fantastic incentive where they give three free books and a 30 day free trial period if you go for their premium plan. It hosts a range of over 1,50,000 audiobooks to choose from. If you get the premium plan the app allows you to get a book every month from their Special Selection. The Special Selection is a killer bonus, which is a varying collection of bestsellers that changes every month. You can find titles from any genre in this collection whether that is fiction or non-fiction.


The app is slick and extremely convenient when it comes to the ease of using it. It seamlessly syncs with all your computers, laptops, tabs, and other gadgets. So, next time when you are out on a walk or cleaning out your wardrobe you can delve into the next chapter of that thriller you were meaning to finish last night with AudiobooksNow.


EASE OF USE: EXCELLENT. AVAILABILITY: IOS AND ANDROID.


TRAVEL APPS

OMIOTRAVEL


Thinking of traveling to Europe? Omio is the one-stop-shop for booking tickets for trains, buses, and flights in Europe. You can feed in the route you want to travel and Omio will show you all the possible travel options available. What I like about the app is that they show you if a mobile/online ticket is sufficient for the journey. If you’re comfortable with a small additional fee, then simply enter your personal details, review your journey information, and then enter to process your payment. You will then get your tickets emailed and are ready to go on your next journey! Omio makes travel in Europe really smooth and easy.


EASE OF USE: EXCELLENT. AVAILABILITY: IOS AND ANDROID.



QUSTODIO


With the information overload in today's age, parental control is necessary to understand the information your child is exposed to. Qustodio is on the market's leading parent control systems. It works across all platforms and the standard package covers five devices. That's quite a bargain for the price! Parents can set suitable rules for each device, all from one robust dashboard. Qustodio excels in web filtering your child's device for malicious links and software. Parents can enable getting detailed reports along with location tracking of their child which provides much-needed peace of mind to the parent. All in all, Qustodio is a must-have for all parents!


EASE OF USE: EXCELLENT. AVAILABILITY: IOS AND ANDROID.


ONLINE LEARNING APPS

LINKEDIN LEARNING


We all know about the awesome app Linkedin, but Linkedin Learning is an added premium benefit. Linkedin Learning is an invaluable tool for significant student learning. There is a high quality of videos and tutorials from industry experts in business from all fields.


It covers topics from marketing, human resources, creativity, and management. Also, the premium plan of this app is very attractively priced making it affordable to professionals and students alike.


One of the key aspects is you can engage with like-minded people and enhance your e-learning knowledge base. They have a minimalist interface design that I absolutely love and their sign up process is simple and streamlined.


The app allows you to set weekly goals and keep a track of all the videos you have watched. Linkedin Learning also sends out a full detailed transcript of the video you watch so you can maintain a record of the summarized version of the videos you have already watched. If you are on the train and its a long journey, invest in Linkedin Learning to watch some amazing videos and sharpen your skills!


EASE OF USE: EXCELLENT. AVAILABILITY: IOS AND ANDROID.
