The Must-Have Mobile Apps for 2019

The number of people who own a mobile phone in Australia is expected to hit 20 million this year, with the overwhelming majority of those being smartphones. Mobiles have become almost indispensable to our daily life and many of us can’t even go an hour or two without checking in. With the take-up of smartphones only set to increase in 2019, here are five must-have mobile apps.


Jane Austen once wrote that “without music, life would be a blank” – a sentiment that still rings true over 200 years later! With the advent of streaming services like Spotify, music has become a lot more accessible as people can carry an endless library of music around with them in their pocket. There’s plenty of other music apps for you to download too, like ones that allow you to listen to both national and international radio stations or apps that let you tune in to your favourite podcasts.


One of the most common New Years resolutions that people set for themselves is around exercising more and your smartphone can help you stay committed to your fitness goals for 2019. If you prefer to work out in the comfort of your own home, there are apps that can show you how to correctly do certain exercises, walking you through tailored workouts without ever having to hire a personal trainer. If you’re a runner, there’s apps that can track your steps, distance, calories burned and much more.



We could all afford to be a little more productive, so why not download an app to help streamline your life? There’s to-do lists to help you organise your tasks for the day, shopping lists to keep track of everything you need to buy for the week and even apps that can store all of your passwords in one single, secure place. If you’re out and about and need access to smart technology, there’s apps for digitally signing documents, editing PDFs and transferring files, so you can get more done in the day.


Games can help us switch off and decompress after a long day – as a result, games are amongst some of the most popular and well-reviewed apps out there. Whether you want to beat that next level in Angry Birds or challenge your brain with a Sudoku puzzle, the Apple App Store and Google Play Store have close to 20 subcategories under the main ‘Games’ category. No matter if you’re looking for Adventure games, Board games, Family games or Trivia games, you’re sure to find something to your liking.



In today’s ever-connected world, it can feel like we’re bombarded with constant news updates any time we log onto social media. Apps like Flipboard can curate your news from a variety of handpicked sources, allowing you to stay across all the latest developments in the areas of interest that matter most to you. Most major news organisations have their owns apps as well, so it’s easy to stay in the know as reported by your favourite channel or publication (especially if you turn push notification alerts on).

How to find the right apps for you

With so many apps out there, you might be wondering how to find the right ones for you. Google is always a good starting point, given the wealth of reviews and comparisons online, while the app stores themselves also allow you to search by category, view user feedback and read about their features.
