May's Essential Apps for Android, iOS, and Windows Phone

May's Essential Apps for Android, iOS, and Windows PhoneApril seems to have flown by, but a decent amount of stuff has happened. We saw more glimpses of plenty of upcoming films including Star Wars, Jurassic World, andMad Max: Fury Road. Super hero sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron came out, and it was awesome, LG announced the G4 smartphone at long last, we found out more about Windows 10, Game of Thrones came back, and the Apple Watch got released.

We saw a lot of glorious apps too, and we’ve been looking over the past four weeks worth to bring you the must-haves going into May.

iOS Apps

The idea behind Linkagoal is the belief that a lack of guidance, resources, and accountability are key factors in people not achieving their goals. The app is designed to tackle this in the form of a social network, allowing people to create and posts their own goals along with offering contributions to help other users people achieve goals of their own. [Free]

May's Essential Apps for Android, iOS, and Windows Phone Unless you’re using physical connections, transferring large files between devices can be tricky and or slow. If you want to be transferring files between your phone and your computer then you should use Infinit. There’s no limit on file sizes, or how many files you can send, and it promises to be 30 times faster than using the cloud (it’s also cheaper than paying for the intermediary storage). [Free]

Plenty of apps out there help you learn instruments like guitar or piano, but what about the drums? That’s where Groove Freedom comes in. The app is designed to let people develop independence on the drums, by practising various patterns. There are exercises for different drum types that will continue to challenge you as you improve in ability. [Free — with subscription]

Paying delivery charges can be expensive, but if want to pay a little bit less it’s worth giving Peership a go. Think of it as an Uber-like service for delivery: you use the app to say what you want (maybe you want a Big Mac, or a bag of grapes), along with how much you’re willing to pay for it. People nearby will be informed of your requests, and can accept it to get you what you need.

Android Apps

Sometimes typing on a keyboard isn’t enough; sometimes you actually like to write things down as you would on paper. That’s what Google Handwriting Input is for. As the name suggests, it’s a keyboard extension that lets you input using handwriting in one of 82 languages. [Free]

May's Essential Apps for Android, iOS, and Windows Phone Spam is all over the place, and now it’s starting to sneak into your device’s notification bar. Deactivating notifications on an app-by-app basis can be tricky, and might even deactivate the useful notifications that you want to see. Smart Notifications is a system that prevents notification spam, powered by the community. It should stop spam getting through, but if it doesn’t just report it to make sure nobody suffers it again. [Free]

There’s nothing worse than standing at the bus stop for ages waiting for the next one to pop along, especially if the bus stop inconveniently doesn’t have a timetable. Moovit is an app that aims to get rid of all that hassle by giving you detailed information on travel routes. This is the fourth version of the app, which comes with new features like searchable transport directions to any place you like, a favourites menu, and live ETA information. [Free]

If you’re going to be travelling with Virgin Trains East Coast, you can now access your tickets on your phone via this app. All you have to do is sign into your account and you’ll be able to access them. It’s limited for now, but more updates are planned, including the ability to buy tickets, check train information, and more. [Free]

There are a lot of cloud storage platforms out there, and I’d wager a decent number of people use more than one to try and get as much storage without paying for it. That can get complicated, which is why Cloud Mesh Pro exists. The app lets you organise all your cloud storage accounts in one place, as well as copying files between them at the tap of a button.
