I am, as I have freely admitted before, totally dependent on my smartphone. It’s how I run my life – both at home and at work. If I had to give up every piece of technology I own but for one device, the smartphone would be the gadget I’d hang on to.
Like everyone else who has become very dependent on smartphones, it’s the apps that go along with it that really make my smartphone the indispensible lifehack that it’s become for me. And as 2011 draws to a close, I thought I’d offer a round-up of my picks for the best apps of the year, as well as some background on why I love these particular ones so much. Not all of these were released in 2011, but this was the year that they became must-have tech helpers in my own life.
And here they are…
