Have you used more than one version of Windows? If yes, you would agree that no matter what utilities Microsoft adds into its operating system, you would still need apps to enhance your usability.
There are a couple of apps that can transform the utility of your windows PC. If you are looking for them, these are some of the best ones:
1: Last Past
This app is a savior if you want to make sure you remember all your passwords and you don’t want to be the victim of identity theft at the same time. It adds your ID and password to a particular program into the app automatically. It also helps in generating passwords. I use Last Pass for saving the password of my WOW account. This makes it easier to access the details of my WOW packages as well.
2: VLC Media Player
Overall, media players have improved but no one can beat the utility of the VLC player. It has been around for more than a decade. This open-source media is simple and effective. It supports a variety of platforms starting from Mac, Android, Chrome OS, iPhone, GNU to Linux. Plus, it runs a variety of audio and video codecs. You will love the way it works.
This mac app has come to Windows too. I find it cool because it lets you find apps and files. You can also use it for a quick web search. Some readers must be wondering would you want to use it when Windows already has a built-in search function. Because it’s more powerful and fast. It also supports plugins. You can customize your search and even translate languages within the app’s launcher.
It’s very useful in making thousands of versions of clipboard saves available rather than just one. It allows you to edit the saved clips, reformat them and share. Although Windows 10 has launched the ability to access more than one clipboard save, Clipmate is still very useful in practice for all users.
5: Flash Quiz
Some of us use flashcards when studying. Even if you don’t, it’s recommended to check out Flash Quiz. It lets you study with the help of flashcards, making it easier to memorize stuff. You can use this app for learning world currencies, flags, capitals, and even periodic tables.
It allows you to create your own flashcards and embed text, sounds, and images within to help you memorize the topics you wish to focus on the most.
6: Hide.me VPN
We all need a VPN at some point. It’s either the case that the website is blocked in your country or you want to browse anonymously.
Hide.me VPN is the ideal app to use. It provides you access to blocked websites or protects you from surveillance and hackers. However, there is one drawback. It’s not free. You can test it by trying it’s a free trial that offers 500 MB limit for 2 weeks. There is a trick to use it free. Renew the trial period. It’s perfect if you don’t use a VPN heavily.
It’s a highly popular language learning app. It’s now available as the windows app. It has 16 different languages that you can choose from. Starting from beginner’s level to the difficulty level, it will help you learn the language and even move towards typing translations. The best thing is its super easy to use.
8: Bamboo Paper
With just a touch, you can convert your screen into a notebook using the Bamboo Paper app. It lets you take notes or sketch on your windows device. Cool, right?
Bamboo Paper is flooded with tools such as pens and brushes that let you draw, write, color or annotate documents. Its user interface is very minimal. You can get started with it right away. You will find it very handy especially if you have a laptop.
9: Total PC Cleaner
You definitely need an app that lets you optimize and clean your system. The total PC cleaner is the one. It clears up the office, mail, app, system, browser and download cache. Once the cache is clear, it speeds up your system.
You can also optimize system memory by using this app. This is a useful feature when there are unwanted apps in the background hogging up the RAM.
Do you need an app that keeps you from the distractions and boosts your productivity? Sounds like you need Tomato. It helps you focus on the right tasks by using the Pomodoro technique. It helps you divide tasks into short bursts and complete them one by one while taking frequent breaks in between. Once the task is broken down into chunks, you are able to accomplish the whole thing effectively.
Just like the easy Wow Internet availability, all these apps are also widely available. All you have to do is download them and start using them.
