Three Cool, New Smartphone Apps You Don’t Know About

Smartphone Apps

In today’s day and age, the smartphone has become as vital a part of daily life as the air we breathe and the water we drink. I don’t leave my home without my smartphone, and it is always within reach – even if I’m showering. One of the main reasons we love our smartphones as much as we do is due to the incredible list of applications we can download. From games to weather, we use apps every single day. But while anyone can talk about the same old apps, here at TechBreach, we’re all about bringing you the latest and greatest.

Be Heard: The App that Records you…5 minutes ago

Do you wish you could record something you just said, but didn’t have a microphone set to record? Well, there’s a new smartphone app that allows you to record anything that happened around you in the past five minutes.

The Heard app records everything going on around you and keeps it in a constant state of buffering. If you said something you wish you had recorded, whether a brilliant philosophical statement or a joke, all you have to do is go to Heard and tell it to record, and it will. However, if you don’t go to the app, your recordings will be deleted once five minutes have past, always providing you with the previous five minutes of recordings around you.

To make it even cooler, Heard allows you to sync the app to your social media feeds, making it easy to share your audio clips with your Facebook followers.  If you want to try it out, Heard will allow you to record 12-second clips for free, or for $1.99, you can buy the full app, allowing you to record the full five minutes of audio.

Find. Eat. Drink: It’s That Simple

We all know about the ever-popular restaurant application, Urbanspoon – the one where you shake your phone and the dials spin, landing on a random restaurant for you to check out in your area. Many users enjoy Urbanspoon, so why would they make the switch to Find. Eat. Drink.? Well, how about because it is curated by people who know what they’re talking about?

Find. Eat. Drink. is run and populated by chefs and bartenders, who have experience in the industry and know a thing or two about what makes a restaurant so great. With reviews, a breakdown of various restaurants, bars and cocktail lounges, along with chef interviews, this nifty restaurant app is in a league of its own.

Duolingo: The Ultimate Language App

A new, quick-paced language app for Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and English, Duolingo is a free application that uses an immersion system that focuses on images to teach you the languages you’ve been dying to learn. Whether you have a conference call scheduled with your clients in Spain, are planning a trip with your spouse to Italy, or need to brush up on your French, Duolingo has you covered. Unlike other language applications, Duolingo focuses on a game-type format that makes learning the new language fun. With no hidden fees and no distracting ads popping into the screen, you’ll be equipped to tackle the romance language of your choice in no time at all.

There are plenty of other cool apps that have recently been released, and more on the horizon. Check back in with us for future updates on what the latest and greatest technology has to offer.
