10 Android applications you need to kick-start 2019

I real­ly like the def­i­n­i­tion that Wikipedia — the online ency­clo­pe­dia — gives to the infor­ma­tion Age! Here is the def­i­n­i­tion: the Infor­ma­tion Age (also known as the Com­put­er Age, Dig­i­tal Age, or New Media Age) is a his­toric peri­od in the 21st cen­tu­ry char­ac­ter­ized by the rapid shift of the indus­tri­al rev­o­lu­tion.

His­tor­i­cal peri­od! As good vision­ar­ies, those who estab­lished this def­i­n­i­tion act­ed exact­ly as if they were speak­ing to future gen­er­a­tions. We are back to the future, as we said a few days ago on our twit­ter account about futur­is­tic gad­gets that were exhib­it­ed dur­ing # CES2019!

Indeed, those who do not fol­low on a dai­ly basis the extra­or­di­nary advance­ments of the dig­i­tal indus­try would come across s or sci-fi–like sto­ries about some of the tech­no­log­i­cal won­ders of our era that the above-men­tioned vision­ar­ies already clas­si­fy as a his­tor­i­cal peri­od.

Like the indus­tri­al rev­o­lu­tion that char­ac­ter­ized the end of the 18th cen­tu­ry and the whole 20th cen­tu­ry start­ed thanks to the inven­tion of the steam engine in … by James Watt, the dig­i­tal era began with the dig­i­tal Rev­o­lu­tion, also known as the Third Indus­tri­al Rev­o­lu­tion.

James Watt, the Scot­tish inven­tor, mechan­i­cal engi­neer, and chemist. His improved steam machine devel­oped in 1776 trig­gered the Indus­tri­al Rev­o­lu­tion in both his native Great Britain and the rest of the world.

The Third Indus­tri­al Rev­o­lu­tion is the shift from mechan­i­cal and ana­log elec­tron­ics tech­nol­o­gy to dig­i­tal elec­tron­ics, which began in the late 1950s to the late 1970s with the adop­tion and pro­lif­er­a­tion of dig­i­tal devices, espe­cial­ly com­put­ers.

At present, we are expe­ri­enc­ing the fourth indus­tri­al rev­o­lu­tion (4IR). The lat­ter is the fourth major indus­tri­al era since the 18th cen­tu­ry Indus­tri­al Rev­o­lu­tion. The 4IR is espe­cial­ly char­ac­ter­ized by a fusion of tech­nolo­gies that is mud­dling the lines between phys­i­cal, dig­i­tal, and bio­log­i­cal spheres. This new trend is com­mu­nal­ly described as cyber-phys­i­cal sys­tems.

On the oth­er hand,  the 4IR is marked by tremen­dous new tech­no­log­i­cal inno­va­tions in many fields, such as robot­ics, arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence, nan­otech­nol­o­gy, quan­tum com­put­ing, biotech­nol­o­gy, the Inter­net of Things, Indus­tri­al Inter­net of Things (IIoT), Blockchain, fifth gen­er­a­tion wire­less tech­nolo­gies (5G), addi­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing / 3D print­ing and ful­ly autonomous vehi­cles.

Ulti­mate­ly, the strik­ing fea­ture of the fourth dig­i­tal rev­o­lu­tion is the use of mobile devices, includ­ing the smart­phone. The smart­phone allowed the democ­ra­ti­za­tion of dig­i­tal tech­nol­o­gy towards the mass­es. In fact, the smart­phone is allow­ing mass com­put­er­i­za­tion of our soci­eties; includ­ing in devel­op­ing coun­tries.

Know­ing that more than 80% of smart­phones are oper­at­ed by android; we found quite rel­e­vant — as our new year’s gift — to come out with a list of the best android apps to have in 2019.

There are lit­er­al­ly hun­dreds of thou­sands of apps to choose from the Google Play. For that rea­son, we’ve col­lat­ed a few core apps that you need to real­ly kick­start your 2019. Some you might already have or heard. So, we had a look on the video that is embe­d­ed into the link below.
