Top 6 Must-Have Mobile Apps

Yamgo TV recommends 6 must-have mobile apps to download on your new phone during the holidays.

With the holidays fast approaching there is no doubt in anyone’s mind that millions of people around the world will be unwrapping presents containing a brand new smartphone this December.

Smartphones are now so technically advanced that they have some of the best features available and are fast replacing gadgets like cameras and Sat Navs- so now you only need one device instead of five. The apps we mention below have all been recommended because they make the most out of the existing features on your smartphones and we can guarantee that you’ll use them again and again.

If you’re one of the lucky ones that will soon be peeling the screen wrap from your shiny new Samsung, iPhone, HTC or LG then read on as we talk about the 6 best mobile apps to download that will help you to make the most out of your new smartphone.

1. First all you’ll need a great camera app. Why? To take pictures to show how happy you are to have your brand new phone of course! Paper Camera is our favourite camera app here at Yamgo. In an instant you can turn a photo into an amazing pencil sketch, comic book drawing or choose from several more fantastic effects that will be sure to impress your friends and family.

Paper Camera is £0.69 from the iTunes store or £1.19 from Google Play

2. So, now you have all these great pics what shall you do with them? Well it would be a shame not to share them…which is where Pinterest comes in! If you didn’t know already Pinterest is a popular social networking site which allows users to “pin” photos and images on boards that they create. You can upload your own pins (photos) or “repin” other users pins. Pinterest is a great tool that you can use to get inspiration for planning parties, weddings or home DIY projects. You can also use it for ideas on fashion, beauty and crafts-pretty much everything and anything can be found on this site and best of all? It’s the prettiest social networking site we’ve ever seen as millions of beautiful photos and images are pinned every day.

Pinterest is free to download from both iTunes and Google Play

3. If photos aren’t your thing then how about video? Everyone knows about YouTube but by having the app on your phone you can instantly share the epic videos you make for the whole world to see. All those high quality videos that you can now create could be the next big thing and in an instant your video could go viral, all over the world. Pretty neat eh? Having the YouTube app handy on your smartphone also means that you have instant access to some of the funniest and entertaining video clips on the planet which is sure to keep you occupied whilst you’re waiting for the bus…

4. That little introduction into entertainment leads us nicely to Yamgo TV. Now, we may be biased but we think the Yamgo TV app is pretty great. When you need an entertainment fix you can access the Yamgo app from your phone and pick from over 100 live and linear channels. There are 7 different genres to choose from including Fashion, Entertainment, News, Sport, Music, Lifestyle and Bollywood. The Yamgo app has entertainment for everyone, anytime and anywhere. If you can’t take our word for it then consider the fact that the Yamgo TV website alone has over 35 million visitors per month!

You can download the Yamgo TV app for free from iTunes and Google Play.

5. Yamgo covers a wide spectrum of entertainment but we know that Music in particular is a big part of people’s lives, which is why we recommend Sound Cloud. This app is the world’s largest network of bands, musicians, artists and creators of sound and music. You can upload your own audio or you can listen and share music created by others. Sound Cloud is the best place to share music you enjoy with your friends.

Sound Cloud is free to download from both iTunes and Google Play.

6. Google Maps is a necessity in a modern day smartphone. Whether you’re exploring a new town, city or country this handy navigation app is hard to beat. Find out what’s nearby including places to eat, things to do and places to see all at the touch of a button. We can’t promise that you’ll never get lost again if you download this app but it will sure make finding your destination a whole lot easier. Using Google Maps you can download directions for various modes of transport including bus, bicycle, car and by foot. You’ll never need a paper map again!
