When it comes to iPad apps, we’ve all heard of Twitter, IMDB and Wikipedia but there’s a treasure trove of apps that most people haven’t even heard of. That’s why I’ve put together this list, to enlighten you on what you’re missing out on.
The 6 iPad apps you haven’t heard of are:
This YouTube Client will blow you away, a slick clean interface provides you with an easy way of consistently browsing your subscriptions or finding new, exciting channels. Due to this being a YouTube client app, it does need to adhere to YouTube rules and regulations, so be warned; some of the more interesting features may get pulled.
Jasmine provides a good-looking logical user interface along with some customization and easy browsing. Many of its features makes it a lot easier than the standard YouTube app to find new content and watch videos. If you are a regular YouTube watcher then you will definitely love this application.
An innovative traffic and navigation app which allows you to share where you’re driving to and from to other drivers on the road. This app is designed to save everyone time and fuel throughout their journey.
Currently Waze only operates in America and has proved to be incredibly popular which leads us to believe that its developers may be thinking about expanding into other countries in the near future. On the Waze website you are able to see a live feed of all the posts to Waze in real time so you can even keep up with the traffic at home before you set off on your journey.
This app is designed for the tech enthusiast who has trouble keeping all their important files in one place. A cloud computing application that allows you to access your files anywhere from your iPhone, iPad, laptop or desktop computer. It makes the need for syncing absolutely obsolete. You can even share these files between your friends via Younity or Facebook.
Younity syncs remotely to your iTunes account so you can have your files and music on your iPad, iPod or iPhone within seconds. If you do not have internet access or access to a computer you can easily download your files from the cloud on to your iPad, iPod or iPhone. Along with all these great features you can instantly stream your music and videos to your TV or stereo. An absolutely brilliant app that I use all the time, I highly recommend you take a look.
Effectively this is a glorified RSS reader, however the ease of use, slick design and additional features makes it so much more. With Flipboard you are able to create your own magazine, view your favourite topics for discussion as well as sharing the items you read so the whole world can know about them.
Flipboard is the number one social-news platform for your iPad; it allows streaming audio and video from the stunning print-style layout. I firmly believe that Flipboard had some sort of impact into the Google Reader feature being closed down. This awesome app allows you to follow pretty much any RSS feed, including Twitter feeds and Facebook feeds. This makes it really useful for the person who wants to collate their web browsing experience into one easy-to-use application.
Possibly one of the less exciting applications on this list. However, one of the most useful, if you are a student, or just feel you need to benefit from a productivity tool. The productivity tool that is iStudiez will help massively from a students point of view, with the ability to create different reminders for classes, assignments and timetables that sync to your iPad, iPod and computer.
Along with these wonderful features iStudiez allows you to track your grades and Grade Point Average to show your improvement and where you should be aiming for at the end of the year. If you are going to use any application to streamline your education and maximise your potential then this is the app for you.
I thought we’d finish this list off with a bang. Snapseed is a mobile photo editing, tweaking and sharing app which makes instagram photo editing seem like a neanderthal. What really sells this app apart is its great way of creating photoshop-esque editing effects with such ease.
Snapseeds extensive feature list and the ease in which you can fully utilise these can make any amateur look like a professional. This award winning application is definitely one to download if you are looking to give your pictures a little pizazz.
