5 super-cool apps for Android smartphones

Different types of apps for a different type of device

The Google Play store is bursting with apps and it’s hard to figure out which are right for you. Instead of spending hours sifting through all the apps out there, choose from this list of five free apps that can make life a little bit easier. From simplifying your grocery shopping to winding down with a daily yoga routine, your smartphone can be your one-stop shop for a stress-free life.

1. Grocery iQ


Build shopping lists scanning the barcodes of empty items in your fridge (you can also use keywords to search). Fully customize your list so you can check off items in an order that makes sense with the layout of your grocery store. Our favourite feature? The ability to share lists between multiple devices and crossing off items in real-time on everyone’s device.

2. Kids Photo Journal by Lifecake

Free, in-app purchases

A digital timeline of childhood memories. This is the perfect way to share your child's growth with family and close friends, without having to share on social media. Loved ones are automatically notified when you post new pictures or videos. You also have the ability to use images to print photo packs, phone cases, posters, magnets, and more – straight from the app.

3. Daily Yoga

Free, in-app purchases

With over 50 yoga plans & workshops, 500 yoga poses with voice instructions and 200 yoga classes with HD video updated monthly this is the only yoga app you need. Choose between multiple sessions varying in duration from 5 to 70 mins. Available in 7 different languages (English, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Chinese, German, French).

4. Loffee


A music app designed for relaxation, motivation, and focus. Find the right soundtrack for challenging workdays or lazy Sunday afternoons lounging in the sun. No internet? No problem – listen to relaxing music even when you don’t have a network connection. Plus, each song has custom artwork displayed on screen.

5. ipiit


Have an allergy or dietary restriction? Input your concerns, then use the app to scan barcodes on food packaging to help you decide if whether the products fits in your diet, or find alternatives that are better suited to your needs. A solid choice for those who have kids with allergies or food intolerances.
