Without mobile applications, a Smartphone is no more than an old bar phone that can only be used for calling and texting. The big screen, powerful processor, latest chipset, and dedicated GPU, all are useless if your phone has no mobile applications.
Today, the Smartphone comes with dozens of pre-installed mobile apps that can be used for various purposes. For example, almost every mobile comes with an internet browser so that we can use that for surfing on the net.
But even then, there are a lot of applications that are missing and you must install those apps on your mobile. These apps could be the gaming apps to kill some time, or there could be some utility apps that can help you in your office work. These could be the apps for helping travelers as well.
In this article, I will list down 5 must-have mobile applications that you must have on your Smartphone whether you are using an Android phone, or an iPhone.
