Technology has made our lives simple. It has made its way into everything we do and is a major part of our day-to-day lives. Through smartphones, today we can access any information whenever or wherever we want. Now there are apps that will allow you to streamline your life a bit so you can sit back and enjoy the little moments.

These apps will help you sync those to-do lists, family calendars, play your favourite songs, protect your expensive gadgets and home appliances, find right places for your leisure time and start downloading your way to a good life! and help you find peace of mind in knowing everyone is where they need to be and that everything is in its place.

 

Amazon Alexa: The Amazon Alexa App has several features right from setting up your Alexa-enabled devices, listen to music, create shopping lists, get news updates. The striking part is that the more you use Alexa, the more she adapts to your voice, vocabulary and personal preferences, with this you also discover and enable recommended Alexa skills. You get to pick up where you left off directly from the Home feed with lists, shopping, or recently played Music and Books.

To add to this, you can set up your Alexa-enabled devices, control or check the status of your compatible smart lights, locks and thermostats at home or on the go.

Google Now: Google Now offers outstanding services to Android users and can also be helpful for iPhone users (where it’s known as just the “Google app”).

 

Like all virtual PAs, it responds to your questions, but it also predicts what you need before you know you need it. For example, it’ll let you know about traffic for your morning commute or record your parking location automatically. And, with its ability to communicate directly with many of your apps, it makes your phone an even more powerful and easy-to-use tool.

OneAssist: A multi-product assistance and protection app for Wallets, Mobiles, Gadgets and Home Appliances – items, on which people are extremely dependent on in their everyday lives. The plans are end to end solutions that not only cover the financial aspect of the loss but also help a customer through the leg work and the hassle with the damage or loss of their mobile phone, appliances or with misuse or fraud that may occur with credit and debit cards.

 

Last Pass: Smartphones carry our whole world—contacts, messages, payment information, eclectic music collection, pictures—so it’s hard to understate the importance of keeping everything safe and secure. Certain apps can make a big difference—protecting your data and securing your communications.

In these password-heavy times, having an app to manage all your login details for you can make a significant difference to your productivity and security. Enter LastPass, which can safely store passwords, shopping profiles, sensitive personal data, and more.

All you need to remember is one LastPass password, and if you’re stuck for new combinations for new sites, there’s even a password generator included for you. Besides working on Android and iOS, LastPass also works for on Windows, MacOS, and Linux, so you can secure your passwords across all your devices. A paid-for premium plan is available if you need to share the LastPass service with other members of your family.
