Hey Everyone!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m sure we all have our own list of favourite apps that we can’t live without. Being possibly addicted to technology, I know I have mine. For me, I’m always on the lookout for apps that make my life easier OR apps that connect me to the rest of the world. I’m not much of a gamer although on some nights, I just download a bunch if I need to de-stress! In fact, my tablet or phone is the first thing I reach for right before I sleep and right when I wake up! Here are my top five favourite apps that I love! I’ll be showcasing them on my new tablet – the Samsung GALAXY Tab S (10.5”) LTE- just because it’s bigger and a beauty. (Thank you Samsung Asia for sponsoring me this new tablet!)

If you’d like more information on the Samsung GALAXY Tab S (10.5”) LTE, here we go! It’s Samsung’s newly launched flagship tablet and I love it so much. I’ve always thought though – “hmm..maybe I don’t need a tablet” but nowadays, my workload is pretty crazy and I always need something that I can work with on the go. It is also so ridiculously light and portable despite the large size. I don’t feel the bulk at all and I really appreciate the slim design especially when I have to bring it everywhere with me. There are actually two colours that this tablet comes in – Dazzling White and Titanium Bronze. The one I have is Titanium Bronze. The Samsung GALAXY Tab S (10.5”) LTE is perfect for this and I have basically everything I need on this baby. Here’s the lowdown on the coolest features that I love about the Samsung GALAXY Tab S (10.5”) LTE!

First of all, the screen is amazing and the colours are vibrant and amazing. I showed it to my parents and they were taken aback too! Watching video on this with the Super AMOLED Display is certainly an experience in itself. I also love how it’s so portable and thin so that I can bring it on the go. The slimmer and lighter design means that I can now work wherever I am. If you have a GALAXY smartphone, you can easily share content. Copy and paste text or even receive calls* and messages on your tablet if your smartphone is out of reach with the SideSync 3.0. Last of all, enjoy over30 premium content and services worth more than $1,000 with the Samsung GALAXY Tab S (10.5”) LTE. (*For SideSync 3.0, this is only compatible with the GALAXY S5 LTE and GALAXY Note 3 With LTE only. More devices will follow.)

This includes GALAXY Gifts – Enjoy local and international content such as Toggle, SPH Magazines, Marvel Unlimited, GigOut! PLUS and many more – and GALAXY Life – Your passport to exclusive privileges, interesting app recommendations, content features, and lifestyle articles. Redeem exclusive privileges and deals at participating merchant outlets for GALAXY Tab S users on “GALAXY Life” app. I really like the SPH Magazines app because it’s so convenient. I have all my favourite magazines in one tablet and I don’t have to fuss over the pages!

Exclusive GALAXY Tab S deals include: E2Max – Enjoy 30 minutes’ bonus with rental of E2Max,  F1 Simulator – Free 10 minutes trial (worth $30 an hour), Party World – 3 persons for the price of 2 (worth up to $93), Play Nation – 3 gaming packages for the price of 2.

1. Beautylish

It’s like Buzzfeed for beauty. They have a ton of beauty articles on this app – from beauty news to the latest beauty launches to tips from your favourite famous makeup artists. When I’m bored, I’ll browse beautylish to stay current with the trends not only in Singapore, but worldwide.

2. Keep by Google

I love keeping my ideas organised and sometimes ideas and to do assignments pop out of nowhere! That’s why I always have Keep by Google. I simply paste a post it note of a thing I have to do and I can cancel it once I’m finished. It feels more organic than writing things down all the time and perfect for on the go.

 3. Buzzfeed

Oh my gosh, if I had a dollar for every time I read Buzzfeed, I’d be a literal millionaire. I wake up in the morning and I read buzzfeed and it’s the last thing I read at night. From articles about the current top news politically to what’s going on between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry to even the top 10 puppies to make you smile – you’ll find everything. Seriously, I’m not too much a person to watch the news or read the newspaper but after I started reading Buzzfeed, it’s become a totally different story. I am so in love, no joke.

4. My Fitness Pal

Because I have to now watch my weight, this is an amazing app to keep track of everything that you eat. Fill in foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner and keep track of not just your calories but your fat percentage. You can modify the serving size and you can create custom foods too!

5. Snapseed

Last of all, I get a lot of questions asking me how I edit my photos! I edit them with the Snapseed app! I used to use vscocam but I realised it kinda makes my pictures a little blurry sometimes. Snapseed allows you to edit ambience, brightness, contrast and saturation so it’s really on point. I love it!

So those are my top 5 apps! Hope you found this useful!
