Mobile apps that save you from missing your PC

A PC is arguably the most important gadget anyone can have in the 21st century as it makes computation easier and can serve as a combination of other devices. Its usefulness surpasses almost every other electronic gadget and its capacity to multitask makes it quite a compelling gadget to possess. While the computer system has gone through significant improvements and modifications such that it can be so small in size that it can easily fit into a sling bag; there may yet be situations where the individual may be forced to be away from his/her PC system.

The most important apps on a PC tend to be the ones that have to do with accessing the internet, preparing word documents, playing audiovisual documents and games. Interestingly some of the most popular PC apps have been modulated into mobile versions; either it is the most sophisticated task manager software or just merely a gaming app that can be accessed via Smartphones thereby ensuring you don’t miss out on the fun even while you are away from your PC. Here are some mobile Apps that Performs similar Functions to PC Apps

WPS Word

Is an office software that can handle most if not all the functions that are obtainable on the Microsoft word PC version. The app allows the user to create and edit documents. It can also be used to prepare PowerPoint slides so that you can get to meet up with preparing the slides for your official engagements even while on the move. The app can also be used to view PDF files so you do not need to separately download PDF viewer. There may be other apps that can offer similar functions to this app, you are not likely to find a more robust Office suite like this app. However, it may take a while to get used to this app, especially the android version as it offers little variation from the PC version. 

Google Chrome

Is one of the most easily recognizable web browsers on a PC. This app is also available on mobile phones. This app helps to bridge the gap between the experience of browsing on a mobile phone and a PC. For instance, websites tend to display differently on a mobile phone than on a PC, but with this app, the browser can be set to desktop mode which then allows the phone to display the page as if it were viewed via a PC. So when out on an important trip like a hiking trip where you don’t want to pack a lot of stuff, you can simply access the web via your mobile Google Chrome. 

VLC Media Player

This app is an open-source multimedia player which can play most multimedia file formats and it is available on android and iOS platforms and other platforms such as Windows, Linux, and Unix. In a generation with diverse multimedia technologies, the capacity to play different media formats is a major attribute of a PC and it is apps like VLC that make this possible.  Essentially VLC satisfies the need for accessibility for different media formats and its android version functions in a similar way. Therefore if you are away from your PC, you can get to capture precious moments on your phone and send them to loved ones and they can get to play the video with their VLC player.  

Mail Apps

Email is one of the most common ways of exchanging official correspondence in the 21st century. While away from your computer you can still send and receive emails from the convenience of your mobile phone. All you need is to download the android app of your email platform to your Smartphone and with internet access, you can continue to send and receive official correspondence on the go. 

 The gap between a PC and a mobile phone is so small. Apart from the development of mobile app versions of PC apps, there is another way of synthesizing mobile and PC apps. For instance, the use of an app like Bluestack which is an emulator software can allow the android apps to be operated on the system. It doesn’t matter whether you will be away from your PC for a few hours or even for a few days, weeks, or months, with the right apps on your mobile, you will be performing most of the tasks and functions you are hitherto used to doing on your PC. All you will need to do is ensure that your phone has enough RAM and ROM space to power these apps to prevent the phone from lagging.
