Smartphones have changed the way we work, communicate, translate, and do almost anything that our work and personal spheres entail us to do. I have been liking the way I intereact with my iphone and use some apps to enhance the productivity of my life. You will find anywhere on the internet the top 10 or the top 50 or the top 100 iphone apps but here I am going to introduce the ones that have changed my life.

Top on the list is EasyTasker a Project management App that allows you to track work projects, projects due, emails, and ability to push work to assigned individuals and synch tasks when and where you needs them all wirelessly. The ther cool things it can do is track timesheets, invoices, user groups and even paypal integration to buy tools that may be necessary for the project. All activites can be synchronized across all your computers.

TurboScan is next on the list, it allows me to to scan receipts, bills, documents save them as images and push them tas PDF to my business or personal email accounts.

aNotes or Awesome Notes is an app that helps me takes notes and classify them into folders, sticky notes, and collate them into books. The app allows me to synch and transfer to my gmail accounts Google Docs, Evernote and the unique ability to add wallpapers and pics as backgrounds to my notes. A plus for the traveller to paste that pic while note taking for your blog or your memoir. It’s also really easy to move notes around, change their look (there are eleven different themes), and sort them by name or date. An annoying feature for me but a boon for the many who forget to put titles on a note is aNote initially auto assigns from the first line, but can be easily changed by tapping the title in notes view. If ‘cool’ user interfaces is what you’re looking for, Awesome Note comes out with flying colors (literally!).

If your looking for a Genie among Apps look no farther, the App Genie is 26+ tool app set  that I love and among them one stands out the scanning of barcodes and isbn to check prices of products and books (in my case) and shop or order it from the cheapest place possible. You genie makes you an intelligent shopper indeed! The translator tool is not bad and helps you talk or email in multiple language. The country facts app in the tool set is a favortie pastime as it helps me brush on country facts and all the trivial useless facts that hopefully may come handy some day. The unit converter and the battery indicator has a guy that voices out the status of your battery and conversions. And the best part is its only $ go for will have no regrets.

The Bing and Google search Apps are next favorite on the lists and the best part is geo voice searching features, pulls up the nearest starbucks, car mechanic, shopping mall, anything and everything you are searching for. Intelligent/smart searches will be a subject I will be writing on in the future but these apps are wonderful and the best thing is these search engines are increasingly becoming "accent" sensistive which means they are able to understand English words spoken by non-native speakers a plus in times of trouble. Personally among the two I I have seen Bing working better with voice search but with added features of visual image search being more attractive than Google.
