This is the first article of a series I’ll be doing. Here I’m going to list the apps I can’t live a day without, in the various platforms I use on a daily basis.

I decided to start with iOS, which is the one I like most in the phone category, that’s why I always carry my iPhone with me: Apps. But then I choose to start with Android because in my opnion it’s a more productivity OS, also I’m writing this article on my Eee Pad Slider using Google Docs.

Let me begin by listing the Android devices I own and use every day:

  • ASUS Eee Pad Slider
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab (the original 7″ version)
  • Samsung Galaxy S

I also have a Motorola Milestone (aka OG Droid) which I only use to test the apps I develop for Android. So I think it doesn’t count as one of my daily drivers. Now let’s begin with the app list:

Google Music
The best way to listen to my library whenever I go. It syncs my iTunes library with all my devices using the awesome Google cloud and albums that I like most and want to enjoy don’t matter if I have a internet connection, with a single tap and they get downloaded to my device so can be played offline. With a stuning UI and great features it’s by far the best music player for Android in my opinion. If you don’t want the cloud features you can check out DoubleTwist which a great alternative for people that just want their music on the device.

Gaug.es
In my opinion the best analytics service available. It’s simpler than Google Analytics and everything happens in real-time. The app shows all the information you can have on the desktop version and also lets you have the awesome AirTraffic Live feature that shows you in real-time, on a map, the detailed traffic on your site. Since I love to check out every second how my sites are performing I can’t live without it for a day.

Wunderlist
This is just the best task manager app ever invented. With a set of apps for every platform you can imagine from desktops to mobile devices. I use it to manage all the tasks I have to finish regarding my projects and keep them all synced across my devices. Definetly a must-have app for people that must be productive.

Google Docs
The most important app on my Eee Pad Slider. Everyone knows this app, if doesn’t know at least the service you should know. I use it on a daily basis to write my articles and long texts for work or school. I stoped using any office suite, this includes iWork and Microsoft Office, after switching to Docs last year. Don’t matter where I go I can view and edit any document I want.

I choose it instead of Instapaper because of the official support for Android and iOS. I love this app because I can keep all the articles I want to read offline and synced. Really a must-have for people that like to read a lot of articles on a day.

That’s it, if you have any other app you think is awesome please share on the comments.
