What’s Your Favorite App (2015)

Last year at this time I wrote a post on my favorite apps and they were:

  • Flickr
  • Pocketcasts

This year Flickr and Pocketcasts still remain my favorite apps but I also use on a daily basis the following apps. All are available in both the Android and IOS platforms.

  • Yahoo News Digest  daily news stories – updated twice a day.
  • Medium – Published stories in tech, art and education from around the world
  • OK Google.  The ability to search with your voice using the Google search enine
  • Pocket  an application and service for managing a reading list of articles from the Internet

What are your favorite apps?



Android Material Design

Pop Quiz CTL subscribers. Do you know what Material Design is? Better yet. Should you care?  You should care if you have Lollipop 5.0, the latest operating system for Android Phones. I have the Nexus 5 so all my apps use the new OS. Material Design makes it easier for my eyes and the animation makes it quicker and fun to use .

Not all apps use the new Material Design. Below are screen captures for some of them and this article from The Next Web lists 15 of the top material design apps
