Weather Timeline:

Weather plays a vital part to plan your schedule and can often drop some surprises in your path. Keeping track of weather can be a tedious task, but with Google Pixel 3, you can get live weather updates periodically over the day. But major weather reporting apps including the infamous Google app make things more complicated to grasp. Weather timeline, unlike other weather reporting apps, doesn’t feature cluttered designs, animations, and meaningless graphs. Touted as a simple and elegant weather reporting app, Weather Timeline makes weather more straightforward to understand thanks to the usage of colors and clipart as opposed to numbers and symbols.

Whether you’re a student or working professional, Trello is a great way to stay organized. The app allows you to work solo or in teams to create boards, customize workflows, add checklists, and more. It is useful for large projects and is an invaluable tool for keeping things neat and organized.

Adobe Photoshop Express:

Our go-to app has to be Adobe Photoshop Express, which enjoys greater accuracy when highlighting specific objects to manipulate and edit. Great results are that much easier to get with a stylus that they are solely by using your fingers. Sure, Photoshop Express will never rival the sheer number of tools and features available in the full-fat desktop PC version of Photoshop, but you’ll probably never find a better companion to make edits on the move.

ES File Explorer:

Of course, we need an application to manage our files on our phone. Both the smartphones come with a file manager application that does the job. But limits the users to certain functions.

Through this, you can browse the files stored on your phone and online cloud services like Google Drive, DropBox, etc. Additionally, it has an inbuilt performance management tool that keeps gathering information about stored clutter.
