Five boundary-breaking apps
With the Google Play and the Apple App Store each boasting no less than two million apps, it’s easy to get lose sight of the amazing technological developments that have been made by just a handful of apps.
So here’s a look at five highly futuristic apps that we use today. Whether you’re hunting down the latest cutting-edge sound, finding your nearest vegetarian restaurant or sampling some exciting online slots developments, check out these boundary-breaking apps!
This month saw the release of Pokemon Go in several nations across the world which signalled the true advent of augmented reality technology. Although the Google Glass project never really took off, this game has already raced to the top of the app charts thanks to the way that it places an endless series of digital creatures in our physical world that we have to hunt down – with a series of safety warnings that always accompanies the release of something unexpectedly great!
This music app was one of the first to truly illustrate just how smart and simple our apps could be. By just holding up your smartphone to an unknown song and triggering the Shazam app, the screen will be lit up with the song title, artist name and a handy link so that you can buy the track with just a click of a button!
There are several virtual reality casino apps already available which allow you to put on a headset and dive into an artificial environment where you get to play poker, slots or roulette alone or in multiplayer mode. Although such developments are only in their early days, you just need to visit Lucky Nugget Casino and sign up for a full list of their online slots games to see the incredible potential that such innovative gaming shows.
Gone are the days of struggling with foldable maps, as Google Maps quickly ushered in a way for anyone to find their way around a new environment from their mobile device. And with a great way to simply find your nearest restaurant, casino or gas station, or even just use Street View to explore some stunning landscapes, it’s an app that’s endlessly useful and entertaining!
This app mirrored the developments in online casinos by offering a digital way to access millions of songs from your mobile device at just the push of a button. By offering the user a way to make playlists and find out what your friends are listening to, it’s yet another example of simple yet groundbreaking app technology!
Nice list,I wouldn’t add or remove anything,but instead of Google Maps I am Using HERE WeGo offline maps because you don’t need network connection for it.
That does sound convenient because you don’t always have a network connection available to you.
Google maps is currently offering the best services and used most widely as far as I know, really a lifesaver when you had to dodge traffic in the peak hour.
I used Spotify before 🙂 it’s really good i just sopped cause I couldn’t find the anime songs I wanted :P.
It’s a good app to look for music.
I can tell apps that are usable o both Mobile and Computers does very well in the market.
There are more people using them if there are more platforms to use those apps on.
WEll.. this is such nice… i like it…
Spotify is what i hear being talked about all the time, people just can’t stop talking about it!
It is easily my favorite music app, the UI and the collection and features are just all too good.
Pokemon GO worth playing if you’re traveller …
It definitely is, I used to skip college at times just to roam around the city and catch some pokemon, it was really fun!
I don’t think Spotify was really that boundary-breaking of an app. Sure, it’s probably the most popular music streaming service, but I think most people just download music to their phone, so they don’t have to listen to ads or use up cellular data.
But Pokémon GO on the other hand was probably the most boundary-breaking. It pretty much changed sedentary gaming and made gaming more physically active by encouraging people to roam to different places in real life. And it was much different than any game that’s existed previously, and originated as an April Fools’ joke back in 2014.
