Favourite Apps of 2016

As 2016 comes to a close, it’s that time of year for the annual “best of …” or “favourite things of 2016.”

This post will be focusing on the apps that I used the most this year, so much that I consider them my favourite apps of 2016. Some of these apps might not have come out in 2015 but some have been significantly since last year’s post: Favourite Apps of 2015.

Some of these apps are just available on only one platform (just Android or just iOS) but some of them are multiplatform in which they are on both Android and iOS and have a web app as well.

The links to download these apps will be in the form of “Get on Google Play” or “Get it on the App Store” picture after each app description.

Pebble has announced that it will be joining Fitbit and stop operating on its own . That mean the company will shut down and they will no longer manufacture Pebble devices.

Michael Kors Access Dylan Review: Style over function

Android Wear smartwatches have been around for almost three years now, and even though they haven’t been as popular as the Apple Watch but nonetheless, they’re still on par with it.

Smartwatches running Android Wear come in all shapes and sizes and even luxury watch brands such as Michael Kors are creating their own Android Wear smartwatches with their take (aside from the software, which remains the same on all Android Wear watches)
