Free Apps That Purfylle My Life

Apps That Purfylle (embellish) My Life

Applications That Purfylle (embellish) My Life

There are so many apps available now it's hard to know what will be useful and what won't. I'll often try out new apps based on friends recommendations. I want it to be worth my time to download and learn how to use. I thought some of you might like to know which apps I use regularly; apps that I'd be sad if they went away; apps that I use daily or almost daily; apps I've been using for years, even before I started blogging. 

3 Web Browser Alternatives to Internet Explorer 

I run Purfylle from Opera because it has a great bookmark system, but I think I'll be taking a look at Vivaldi soon. 

Chrome has more plug-in options including Chrome Cast - which is just awesome! I tend to use Chrome for all my non-blog related browsing. 

And Firefox - I love to support open source! A lot of people use Firefox so it's good to make sure the blog is working over there.

Which browser do you use? It's important to see what your site looks like on various web-browsing platforms to make sure everything works okay, remember to check mobile devices too.

3 Cloud Apps

  • Google Calendar is an on-line calendar with reminders and loads of features, the more I use it the more I love it. 
  • Evernote so useful I wonder how I ever managed to keep track of everything before. I stopped using Evernote for a little while when I switched from my Android netbook to a Windows netbook but I've started using it again even on my Windows netbook as it is great for on-line collaborating. 
  • Google Drive an office suite with spreadsheets, documents, and more. If you have a g-mail account you automatically have access to Google Drive on-line.
More and more applications are moving to the 'Cloud' where you can access everything from anywhere so long as your device has internet access.

3 Image Editors

When I started blogging my internet data was limited to the 3GB each month via my mobile phone plan, so it was really important that I could edit all of my photos off-line and then upload them once they were web-ready. I know there are a lot of on-line image editors but I don't use any of them (although both Snapseed and Picasa have on-line access available).

3 of my Favourites

  • Notepad ++  source code editor. If you ever wished notepad would allow you to have 2 text files open at once you'll find this useful! If you edit code, you'll wonder how you managed without it. Get the HTML tidy plug-in to really help make working with code easier. 
  • FeedDemon free feed reader | RSS reader
  • FB Reader for Android free e-book reader
If you've never heard of a feed reader before you will absolutely LOVE them! You can add the address of all your favourite blogs and it gets all the new stuff for you to read so you don't have to bookmark them all or remember their addresses to visit them all individually.

Every night I like toread before I go to sleep so a good book reader is gold for me. There's over a thousand e-books I've read on my phone.

But the number one App that is absolutely indespensible is KeePass to help me manage my gazillion passwords.
