Take a look at these 5 free apps and see if there's something new your phone can start doing for you today.
1. Scan documents
These days, most smartphones sport powerful cameras that let you do much more than snap a few photographs. Apps like CamScanner for Android allow you to turn almost anything you can take a picture of into a PDF. With this feature, you can keep digital copies of business cards, receipts, and other important documents. You can even share documents via email straight from your phone, or you can send documents to a landline fax machine.
2. Monitor your heart rate
Measure your heart rate, watch every heartbeat with a real-time PPG graph, and monitor your cardio workouts with apps like Instant Heart Rate for Android, which uses your phone's camera in a way that's about as far from a document scanner as you can get. It uses the camera to detect color changes in your index finger that are linked directly to your pulse. Apps like these are fun to try even if you're just curious to see how they work, but they can also help you track your heart health and stay on top of your fitness goals.
3. Track your kids
Giving parents everywhere a little extra peace of mind are GPS-tracking apps like Life360's app for Android. This app allows family members to stay in touch and let each other know when they've safely arrived at a destination. Users can view the locations of friends and family on a private map, chat one on one, and even track a lost or stolen phone.
4. Use a surface level /tape measure
These practical apps turn your smartphone into a convenient multi-use tool. Bubble Level for Android uses your phone's accelerometer (the same thing that rotates the view of your screen when you change the position of your phone) to detect how level a surface is. Using this app is as easy as setting your phone on or against the surface of a given object. And never guess height or distance again with Smart Measure for Android . It uses trigonometry to measure the distance, height, width, and area of a given object. When using the app, all you have to do is point your phone's camera at what you want to measure, then press the shutter as if you were taking a picture.
5. Identify things
Just snap a picture of a product, painting, barcode, famous landmark, or popular image. If Google can match your picture to something in its database, it will provide you with useful information. You can even use it to translate by taking a picture of text in a foreign language.
These are just a few of the seemingly countless apps available for smartphones today, and more are being developed all the time. With so many apps available for free, trying out a few new ways to use your smartphone is both easy and fun.
