Kodi and Other Essential Apps That all Android and iOS Users Need

Both Android and iPhones come with certain pre-installed apps, and then the more popular apps, such as TikTok, YouTube, Netflix, and Spotify. Aside from social media music, and TV streaming apps, there are many other apps that you should consider downloading to your phone— whether you have an Android or an iPhone.


Technology has changed virtually every part of our lives, and the dating scene is no exception. Because of this, many people use dating apps for fun and even find long-lasting relationships. If you’re looking for a serious relationship, consider downloading the dating app Hinge. The company is pretty well-known for many things, including:

  • Alternative to casual dating
  • Being the app “designed to be deleted”
  • Having a zero-tolerance policy on harassment 


Many entertainment apps like Netflix allow you to download content to watch later. If this is something you do (legally), then you’ll need a media hub to keep track of all of your content. This is where Kodi comes in, as it houses all of your music, movies, TV shows, photos, and games. You can even add more content to your media hub.


More and more people are starting to take better care of their health, and it’s easier to do so with some of the apps available on iPhone and Android these days. The FitOn app has thousands of workouts to choose from, featuring HIIT (high-intensity interval training), meditation and yoga, and strength training.

For fun and healthy recipes, you can download the Tasty app. You can find recipes based on your specific dietary needs, and you can even find indulgent recipes for your cheat days.


Like health and fitness, another trend among the younger generation is investing. Investing is by no means anything new, but the things and the way we invest are different from the past decades. Robinhood is a great app to help you get started in the world of investing. While you’re investing, you’ll also want an app that will help you keep track of all of your finances, such as Mint.


Social media does a pretty good job of keeping us informed with the latest news and stories developing around the world, but it’s still good to have a reputable news source in the form of an app. The type of news app to download depends on the type of news you prefer to consume. For example, you’d download The Wall Street Journal if you’re interested in business and economics, and you’d download ESPN if you’re interested in sports news and highlights.


The 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic forced a lot of people to work from home— even if they didn’t have a computer. Fortunately, our smartphones can do almost everything a computer or laptop can do— especially with the help of these apps:

  • Dropbox
  • Google Docs
  • Office Suite

Apps like Slack and Asana also are very helpful for remote workers. All of these apps on your phone make it possible for you to travel with friends/family and keep up with work (if you’re a remote worker) at the same time.


Learning doesn’t stop when you’re finished with school— it’s a lifelong process. Reading is a great way to keep learning, as it improves brain function, increases knowledge and vocabulary, and helps with concentration. Unfortunately, not everyone has the time to read with their busy schedules and lifestyles. This is why the app Audible is a good option because it allows you to listen to books when you’re on the go.


Technology has also changed the way we shop and how we pay for items. For example, Amazon (which most people probably already have downloaded on their phones) allows us to order almost anything we need with just a few taps. Another way to make paying for items easier is by downloading the Paypal app. With this app, you’re able to use this as your payment method, receive payments, and notify you when a bill is due.


If you travel a lot, there are two apps that will be very helpful for you: Airbnb and Uber. Airbnb is a platform that helps you find lodging accommodations (almost) anywhere in the world, and Uber gives you a ride to wherever you need to go. You can even use Uber in your own hometown if you don’t have a car of your own.

Because our smartphones are capable of so much, we can use it for more than just talking, texting, social media, gaming, and watching movies and TV.
