No matter what mobile device you own, you will agree that not all the 2.5 million+ apps in Google’s Play Store or the 1.8 million+ in the Apple App Store are worth downloading. If you are like most people, you only search for and install those apps you need and never bother about the rest.

1. Just a Line

Big companies like Google have created an impressive arsenal of ARCore tools that developers can use to render new forms or reality. One of the best tools released this year is Just a Line, a unique mobile phone app that lets you create lines and objects with just your finger. With this app, you can sketch masterpieces on your device wherever your mind takes you.
2. Contact Tracing App
COVID-19 outbreak forced some governments to devise solutions that would help them trace people using their devices. South Korea was one of the first countries to develop a contact tracing app that proved highly invaluable in the mitigation of the spread of coronavirus. Using the contract tracing app, the authorities were able to find people who may have come into contact with infected persons in places such as airport lobbies, churches, and other public spaces.
3. Snap Search
User privacy online is a big thing. Increased surveillance means people want the assurance that no one is tracking their activities online. Some even shun popular search engines and use tools like Snap Search app, a simple browser-like tool that lets them make web searches or browse privately. Besides browsing, you can use it to make online purchases and even find the best betting odds on SBOBET without leaving digital footprints. How cool is that? Here’s the best part. This app comes with tracker and ad blockers out-of-the-box, and you can even integrate a VPN at a small cost.
4. Energy Ring
The world is not ready to sacrifice the front camera for full display on mobile phones, so we have to live with notches and rings on the front screen.
The developers of the popular Energy Ring app for Samsung devices came up with a unique Energy Ring that shows the power meter as a circle around the camera hole. Customize the thickness of the meter, change colors, and make other modifications to suit your preferences. The new version supports OnePlus 8 phones in addition to Samsung Galaxy S20, Z Flip, and A Series.
5. Scan-and-Shop apps
Mobile e-commerce is booming worldwide thanks to shopping apps. With a few taps, shoppers can find what they are looking for online, place orders, and pay securely. One aspect of shopping that’s gaining traction is scan and shop, an idea that combines online and off-line shopping. In 2020, multiple retail outlets have released shopping apps that allow shoppers to scan items and instantly access all the information pertaining to those products. These shopping tools are handy as they eliminate the need for human assistants, who are common across many shopping malls.
As mobile apps continue to evolve, we will see even more interesting ideas coming into life in the near future.
