Apps To Know: Sunrise, Agent, Timberman & Google Wallet
Some of Rich’s top app picks for July
There are hundreds of new apps hitting the app stores every month. Here are some notables we love!
Sunrise is a great calendar app that not only looks beautiful on both Android and iOS, but it also connects to your various accounts to pull in information from places like Evernote, Facebook, TripIt, LinkedIn, Twitter and more.
Google Wallet never really took off as a way to pay but they’ve added some pretty useful features. First, you can use it to store your store loyalty cards – all you have to do is scan the back of them! It recognizes cards from many retailers – big and small. Then, when you’re in a store it will even remind you to use your card. Just added – you can now store your gift cards inside Google Wallet too – so you never have to leave home without them.
Agent does several great things for your Android phone – the best feature is how it mimics Apple’s excellent “Do Not Disturb” feature on the iPhone. Agent can keep your phone silent while you sleep but let in important calls and texts you don’t want to miss. Agent also remembers where you park, helps you save your battery, silences your phone during meetings and can even reply and read your incoming texts while you drive.
There’s not much to say about Timberman except download it. It’s a simple, fun game that it easy to play and tough to put down. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
