5 Apps To Look Out For In 2014

The previous year was quite a big year for apps. Many app companies were either sold for really big money or the companies were bold enough to reject multi-million offers from larger corporations.

There were plenty of new apps that came out in 2013 as well, although nothing particular really stood out. But the popularity of apps is expected to continue in 2014 as well.

Here are five apps that you should keep an eye on this year.

1. Personal Capital

The first app on this list has been around for a while now but it will continue being a success in 2014 because of the changing ways we use apps. Financial apps are becoming increasingly popular and in 2014 saving is essential in order to make the most out of your finances.

Personal Capital is one of those great saving apps that allow you to stay on control of your finances. It lets you view your transactions and accounts in an instant and will thus make it easy to ensure you aren’t spending too much money.

2. FitBit

Health apps are also becoming increasingly popular and there are plenty of different ones to go with. FitBit is one really exciting newcomer into the health app market and it is definitely worth trying out in 2014.

As this FitTechnica article points out the people behind this app have been really smart with their marketing strategy. The app is free to use and getting interested in this fitness-tracking app might also get you interested in getting the FitBit Force wristband that offers extra features. This is a really good lesson companies should take on board when developing apps.

3. Hearthstone: Heroes Of Warcraft

You might know about Blizzard’s World Of Warcraft game and if you are fan of the franchise you’ll be excited to hear about this new game. Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft will come out later this year as a free to play app as well as a computer version.

The game is a strategic card game and will suit adults and kids alike. The beta version on PC was hugely successful so this game might also end up being a really big favourite on mobiles as well.

4. Boom Beach

Another big gaming app that is not yet published is the Boom Beach game by the creators of Clash Of Clans. Supercell recently sold a 51% stake of the company to two Japanese firms and it is interesting to see how these developments might influence their new games.

Boom Beach is pretty similar to the type of gameplay you got to love in Clash Of Clans. So if you liked that game you will probably also enjoy this new edition to the field.

5. Notegraphy

This exciting app was launched right at the end of 2013 and it has already received quite a few downloads. In its function it is best described as the Instagram of text. Users can share their written text in social media with this app.

The twist is that the app formats the text in a really beautiful way. It uses different fonts, colours and backgrounds and makes sharing your thoughts much more exciting.
