The Best Video Chat Application For Android

Video chat on smartphones has come a long way in a relatively short amount of time, and the tools available for Android have matured from gimmicky to genuinely useful. You have a lot of great options, but we think that Google Hangouts deserves the crown for the overall best and most well-integrated method to see and talk with friends.


App Directory: The Best Video Player For Android

Playing videos on Android can be frustrating. Fortunately, BSPlayer offers the best balance between features, compatibility and ease of use.


App Directory: The Best Image-Editing App For Mac

When you think of image editors on any platform, your mind goes straight to Photoshop. For most of us, paying Adobe’s high costs will get us an app that does more than we really need. As a result, we feel Pixelmator will win the hearts of most users on the Mac. It handles just about every image-editing task you’d think to throw at it for less than the cost of two months of a Photoshop subscription.


App Directory: The Best Address Book App For Android

If you’re looking for a smarter way to manage your contacts, Contacts+ for Android is your best option. It brings a number of features to the table that help you quickly get in touch with your contacts and keep up to date with them.


App Directory: The Best Web Browser For Android

There’s no shortage of great web browsers for Android, and which one you use is largely up to personal preference. If we had to pick one however, we still think Dolphin Browser is your best bet for speed, features, gestures and add-ons.


App Directory: The Best App Updater For Windows

Wouldn’t it be nice if your Windows programs would all update themselves in the background, without you having to manually download every ding dong update that comes along? There are a lot of programs that will monitor updates for you, but the best we’ve found is Ninite Updater. Here’s why.


App Directory: The Best Web Browser For iOS

While mobile Safari does most of what you’d need from a smartphone web browser, and there are many alternatives that fill in the gaps, we prefer Chrome. Google’s browser offers excellent features, synchronisation and simplicity at no cost.


App Directory: The Best To-Do App For iOS

The iPhone has a remarkable number of iPhone to-do app options, but one of them shines above the rest. Any.DO is our top pick, thanks to its ease of use and smart feature set.


The Best News Reader Application For Android

Android has several great news readers and while many of them have gone by the wayside now that Google Reader is no more, others have stepped up to take centre stage. If we had to pick one that fits the needs of most people and packs in a ton of useful features, it would have to be the free, cross-platform, cross-device syncing Feedly.


App Directory: The Best Virtual Assistant For Android

The number of voice-activated “virtual assistants” for Android has exploded in recent years, ranging from the gimmicky and niche to the genuinely useful and broadly applicable. None of them are perfect, but we think that if you can get it on your device, Google Now’s rolled-in simplicity and array of genuinely useful tools make it the best personal assistant your can get on an Android device.
