Our Top Picks for Mobile Apps

By February 21, 2013 No Comments


The world of mobile apps is constantly evolving and rapidly growing at a spectacular rate. More and more we are spending time with apps as they become more useful and purposeful for our individual needs. Apps tend to satisfy three main driving points to fulfill what the end user is seeking to accomplish; fun & entertainment, convenience, and learning. I asked some of the iPhone users around the office what their three favorite apps are, although some got excited and sent me quite a bit more. But hey, that’s the reaction we’re looking for when we want some solid recommendations. Check out the responses after the jump.
