7| Instagram turned me into an amateur photographer
It’s amazing how a simple app like Instagram can become such an integral part of my phone. Instagram lets you add quirky filters to your photos and share them with your friends via a built-in news feed. You can also push your photos to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Foursquare, making it a one-stop app for all your favorite social networks. Instagram is only on iPhone right now, but the Android version is expected very soon.
8| Google Voice is the best way to keep up with voicemail
Whether you’re an Android or iPhone user, Google Voice is my favorite way to keep track of voicemail. All your messages are saved in the cloud, so you can listen to them later on your computer. Google also automatically transcribes your voicemails to text so you can read them instead. However, the transcription’s accuracy tends to be less than perfect.
Price: Free for iPhone and Android

9| Chrome is still my favorite browser
There are a lot of great alternative browsers out there, but Chrome is by far my favorite. I love its simple, minimalistic design and the fact that it usually runs faster than other browsers. If you have a Google account, you can easily sync your browsing history and bookmarks across all your computers that use Chrome.
