Apps for Creativity


Using smartphones and tablets is a big help for every creative person with their business in mind and here is the collection of apps that can help in unleashing that creative spark everyone has inside.

These Apps are listed in no particular order and most are available for iphone, ipad and Android


First help for creative person, it is a cross-device easy-to-use app, which stores your notes, photos, to-do lists and makes it all searchable and accessible from web, smartphone or tablet.

My Price

Trying to figure out how much to charge clients can be stressful. This app helps keep new freelancers up to snuff on what price they should be charging clients. My Price not only helps you figure out pricing information — it shares three very helpful tips each week.

You need to register before using this app, and you will need to enter information required before it can give you an accurate price, but it’s a better option than having to find other freelancers with your exact skills and experience before you know what to charge.


• Clear 

Nice-looking list-keeping app that is really simple, quick and easy to use, no matter if you are creating notes or to-do lists.


• AppGratis

This app is so useful and popular among Android users that it was taken down from the Apple Store. AppGratis is an Android-only app that searches for and notifies the user of daily free applications, ranging from enjoyable to educational.

Upon installation, AppGratis automatically begins notifying the Android user of free apps on a daily basis. 

Hitting this notification takes the user to the easily manoeuvrable AppGratis interface, which gives the name and description of the app that is currently being advertised. 

It also keeps a catalog of old apps that may still be free using AppGratis, in case you missed a day. A great way to find new, useful apps free of charge, AppGratis is a must-have for the modern technology buff, opening the doors to new experiences within the electronic world each and every day.
