    The Smartphone Feast 2014: Top 10 Apps to Download


    You are a medieval gunslinger reborn in an age of technology. Equipped with a sleek smartphone, you can take on anyone trying to mess with you. But wait! Have you loaded your weapon with some mean apps that can give you a winning edge? 2014 is around the corner; so let’s see what it takes to survive in the coming year:


    1) Yelp (iOS, Android, Windows, Blackberry): Locate restaurants, bars and other businesses in the vicinity. Find cost-saving deals and smile like a smart man. You got Yelp.


    2) Mint (iOS, Android and Windows 8): Made for the wise financial warrior, Mint is the ultimate weapon to create a budget, monitor financial goals, and set bill reminders.


    3) WhatsApp Messenger (iPhone, iPad and Android): The concept of free text messaging has reached new heights, thanks to WhatsApp. It’s somewhat similar to Apple’s iMesssages, but way more efficient and popular.


    4) Twitter (iOS, Android): Follow the world, notice the changes, and be a part of the happening events. Twitter is more than just sharing; it’s a tool to watch the world unfold around you.


    5) Evernote (iOS, Android, Windows, Blackberry): Perhaps the best example of a multipurpose smartphone app. Evernote will let you take notes, record conversations, make to-do lists, and capture photos.


    6) Wikipedia Mobile (iOS, Android): Why download the app when you can access the website online? Because you can refer to the saved articles offline even if you’ve no access to the internet.


    7) HealthTap (iOS, Android): The single best app when it comes to emergency medical advice. HealthTap answers medical questions from a database, which uses expertise of 50,000 doctors. Sounds reassuring?


    8) Subcommune (iOS, Android): Watch foreign videos with subtitles and enhance your knowledge by consulting the web via Subcommune. An original idea by a seemingly new player in the market.


    9) Lumosity (iOS): All hail the “gym for your brain". Lumosity is a brain training program that can considerably improve your memory and concentration.


    10) Facebook (iOS, Android): Needs no introduction. If you are a social guy, go get it. If you are not, still get it.
