Smartphone apps are so popular today that it’s hard to imagine how we used to entertain ourselves, exercise, and tidy up our office affairs without them. Every day, hundreds of new mobile apps are released on online platforms around the world. You can’t download everything to your phone, and there’s no need to. But we made a selection of interesting applications, of which many people may not have realized until now, but they do make life easier!
The main purpose of apps is to make our lives easier. To remember things we often forget about, to navigate to this online casino website more conveniently, to group data into convenient databases, to organize current affairs, or to provide quick access to resources. Here are some of them that will do this task well without too much human hassle.
The first thing that appeals to Bookmate is the synchronization between devices. You read on your tablet, continue on your smartphone or laptop from the same page where you left off on the previous device. To do this, of course, the device must have access to the Internet. But it is needed only for quick synchronization, you can read books offline, disabling all communication modules to save money.
The second is the payment system. You do not need to buy a separate book, you pay for a subscription for a month or year and read everything in the library, which is more than 500,000 books from 600 publishers in 9 languages.
But that’s not all. Bookmate is divided into two parts. The first is the app that you use to read. The second is the web service at bookmate.com where you can upload any epub or fb2 book to your library and read it through the app with exactly the same syncing between your devices.
If you don’t have your own books and you’re not ready to pay for licensed books yet, then you can choose from a variety of free books of world classics. These, of course, are not hits and novelties, but were ever priceless masterpieces so accessible? Yes, even fans of reading the masterpieces in the original should not forget about the possibility of instant translation of any word by double-tap.
Creators of the service did not forget about the social component. Once you connect one of your social accounts to the service, you can find your friends who also use Bookmate, keep track of what they’re reading and share your books and favorite quotes with them.
One last bonus is that you can give a subscription to your friend. You simply pay for a gift subscription and get a code that, when entered, makes your friend another lucky Bookmate user for a certain amount of time.

6. Coiner or Money Flow
Applications are designed to save and plan your budget because when you see what and how much you spend, it is much easier to control cash flow. The principle is simple: you enter your expenses and sort them by categories: food, transport, health, entertainment, and other items of expenditure. At the end of one or more months of use, you can examine in detail where your salary is “flowing away” and optimize your budget. But it is important not to cut back on things that improve quality of life and shape your mood: another cup of coffee in your favorite cafe is never superfluous.
