Netflix is the best app for watching Movies and checking out TV shows. With Netflix you can watch new movies and your favorite TV shows from the palm of your hand. Netflix does have a little bit of costs attached to it but compared to the facility it provides the price is relatively cheap. Netflix is the worlds number one Movie viewing app and is not only available for iOS and Android, its almost everywhere. It's worth the buy!
IMDb is another app for Movies, TV, and Celebrities but it is different than Netflix. Netflix shows you full movies and TV shows while IMDb tells you what's new and about new movie releases and news about celebrities. While Netflix is a paid app IMDb is 100% free. IMDb is the best app that you can find regarding which movies are about to be released and which movies are already released. It also tells about different TV shows and their timings as well. It also presents news about actors and in which movies they will or are acting in. Netflix and IMDb together make a perfect combination.
Pocket is another successful app. Time is very scarce in today's life for everyone and not everyone has the time to read everything they find on the internet. If you find an article or a anything of your interest online but don't have the time to read it at that moment, you can save it to pocket. Pocket will save that app into it's own storage and will then let you read the article whenever you want. Just mark the article as 'Read It Later' and Pocket will add the article to itself. You can then read the article anytime you want even without internet access. You can read whatever you marked as 'Read It Later' offline.
WhatsApp was released before 2012 but new updates has changed it completely from what it used to be in the beginning. Whatsapp allows you to message anyone you want for free if the person you are messaging also has WhatsApp. WhatsApp is basically a free messaging service that works over WiFi or 3G and saves you lots of money. WhatsApp is user friendly and you cannot only send messages but pictures, videos, and voice recordings. Messaging is slick and you even update your status, set a profile photo, and have group conversations as well. The only thing that it lacks in is a fully functional calling system.
Viber is another app like WhatsApp but the thing that Viber includes is the fully functional calling system that WhatsApp lacks. The best thing about Viber is that it is totally free! No costs at all! It works over WiFi or 3G and is great for a free app. You can call and send messages to anyone that has Viber on their phone. But if you prefer to type messages rather than calling then WhatsApp will be better to have and that is why Viber comes after WhatsApp.
