1. Syncthing

For those juggling between two phones daily, managing files stored on different devices can be a hassle. Enter Syncthing—an open-source app designed to seamlessly sync files and folders across multiple devices. Here’s how to use it:

  • Open Syncthing on both devices.
  • On the device you wish to share a specific folder from, click on the “+” icon located on the top right.
  • Name the folder and select the desired path.
  • On the other device, click on the hamburger menu and select “Show Device ID.”
  • Scan the QR code from the first device by navigating to the devices section and tapping the “+” button.
  • Accept the invitation, and you’re all set.

2. Groovifi

Ever stumbled upon a new song and instantly felt the urge to discover more tracks like it? Groovifi has you covered. This app categorizes songs based on various metrics, such as electronic, energetic, happy, acoustic, and more. With each song having its unique metrics, users can select a base song and find similar ones. Additionally, users can customize these metrics to their preferences, creating a personalized playlist.

Furthermore, the app offers the ability to filter songs by specific BPM and intervals, further refining the playlist. Here’s how to get started:

  • Open the Groovifi app.
  • Log in with your Spotify account.
  • Navigate to the desired song to use as the base.
  • Click on the song and hit “Apply.”
  • Adjust the metrics to curate the perfect playlist and then click on “Save Playlist.”

3. Video Summarize

For college students, going through hours of tutorials for a single subject isn’t always feasible, especially when most of us tend to leave things for the last minute. Fortunately, with AI revolutionizing various aspects of our lives, preparing for exams has become more manageable.

The Video Summarize app simplifies this process for users. You can simply paste the link of a YouTube video you wish to summarize. The AI then generates a document covering all the crucial aspects and even allows users to pose follow-up questions regarding the content. Moreover, users can share the document with others, thus helping them out as well.

4. Equalizer-Bass Booster

If you use your phone for extended periods, you may have noticed that speakers tend to lose some of their loudness over time, and earphones may develop imbalance issues between the two earbuds. If you’re facing these problems or simply want to better your audio experience, then the Equalizer-Bass Booster app is the solution you’re looking for.

This user-friendly app features an equalizer for those who prefer a customized sound profile. However, if you’re unfamiliar with equalizer settings, you can choose from various pre-made options, each tailored to specific audio preferences. Additionally, the app offers bass boost and loudness settings to enhance the bass and volume of your headphones and speakers. Moreover, if you’re experiencing volume issues with your earbuds, the audio balance setting allows you to adjust the output for a more balanced sound.

5. Color Changing camera

Repainting your house can be a headache, especially when it comes to choosing the right colors. While we may have clear ideas about the colors we want, they don’t always translate accurately into reality, as colors behave differently in various settings. This is where the Color Changing Camera app comes in.

This app allows you to point your camera at any object, select a desired color, and apply it to the item. Not only does this help you visualize the color, but it also enables others to judge whether the color would complement its surroundings or not. Although the app doesn’t work on white or black surfaces, it still provides a pretty good idea.

6. Rewind

It’s no secret that music has evolved in recent years and gone are the days of slow songs or even the hard-rock music of the 1990s. However, what if there were an app that let you discover music from that era? This is where Rewind comes in, as it is a music discovery platform that allows users to experience the billboard hits of past years.

Moreover, it also includes a quirky “Alternate Universe” section that reimagines the album cover of various tracks using generative AI.

However, it is important to note that this app is not a streaming platform, and users will need to install Spotify, or Apple Music to listen to the songs. Alternatively, they can listen 30-second previews of the songs for free.

7. Microsoft Copilot

Ever since their introduction in 2022, AI chatbots have taken the world by storm, and Microsoft seems to be at the forefront with its Copilot. Now, after integrating the chatbot into Windows, the company recently released the Microsoft Copilot app on the Play Store, allowing users to perform a slew of functions.

Firstly, unlike OpenAI, which charges a subscription fee for using GPT-4 and the DALL-E image generator, Microsoft is offering them for free with the app, albeit requiring users to log in to their Microsoft accounts.

But what exactly can you do with the Copilot app and GPT-4? In short, a lot. The GPT-4 AI is far superior to GPT-3.5, allowing it to comprehend and process information far more effectively. This directly translates to real-world applications like programming, where the AI can not only write code but can also improve its solution for efficiency.

Furthermore, users can also utilize the chatbot for different things, such as solving homework by scanning images, generating images, or even redesigning their homes and office spaces.

8. Artifact

With almost every major news site transitioning to a subscription-based model, keeping track of the news has become a little different. This is where Artifact, developed by Instagram’s co-founders, comes in. The app looks similar to X in layout and displays a curated feed of articles tailored to an individual’s liking.

Additionally, Artifact features a ‘Headlines’ tab, which, as the name suggests, includes the top stories based on a user’s preferences and also provides the option to rate articles, allowing users to align the news with their interests.

9. Open Food Facts-Food Scanner

In this day and age, where almost every food item is processed, keeping a healthy lifestyle can be a difficult task. Moreover, with companies hiding important information on labels, it is crucial to keep track of what you are eating. The Open Food Facts app scans the barcode on the back of any product and displays all the important aspects of any food product. These include the nutritional quality grade, the list of ingredients, additives, and even the carbon footprint of every item.

Moreover, the app includes insights about every additive and preservative present in the product, allowing users to make smart decisions.

10. Cashew

Keeping track of your expenses is one of the best ways to save money in this inflating economy. This is where Cashew comes in. It is a simple budgeting app that allows you to enter a specific budget based on the time frame and record your expenses. Additionally, the app includes several other features, such as attaching receipts when entering expenses and even tracking loan repayments.
