Mobile Apps The Tech-Obsessed Can’t Afford To Go Without

Posted on June 3, 2016 by Nikhil P Naik

Let’s face it, most of us are a little tech-obsessed. Especially those of us who spend a lot of time on this website. The good news is that there has never been a better time for we techies to indulge our obsessions. There are literally hundreds of mobile apps, waiting to satisfy us, hiding in every corner of the App Store.

So without further ado, let’s dive in, and have a look at some of the best techies apps out there right now.


If you were a child of the 1980s or the 1990s, you’ll have fond memories of the NES. It was Nintendo’s first foray into the console market. And damn, was it fun!


Well, now you can relive that magic by getting an app, appropriately called NES, that allows you to play all your old favourites. You can launch yourself back into Super Mario, just like it’s 1989 again. Plus you can play a whole load of new games. As far as techies are concerned, NES is a little slice of heaven.



Most us of us have some sort of newsreader on our phones. But more often than not, the content is too general. It’s not techie enough. That’s where NetNewsWire comes in. This app is super helpful because it allows the tech-obsessed to read about all their favourite topics all in one place. The app essentially gathers up all your RSS feeds together in one place. And it scales across different platforms.

There’s a lot to like here. Plus, there’s enough content to keep you entertained for hours.

Farlex Dictionary

Farlex Dictionary

Even tech enthusiasts sometimes run out of technical vocabulary. That’s why it’s a good idea to have a dictionary handy. But who has a dictionary handy? Well, fortunately, anybody who has installed Farlex on their smartphone. called Farlex “one of the best free dictionaries that you can get.” And that should come as no surprise, given all the features.

The dictionary is great for anyone who works on technical projects, or just needs help with their homework.


The last thing that techies want to be doing is scribbling down notes on tiny bits of paper. It’s about as far as you can get from the techno-wonderland they want to live in.


Well, it’s Evernote to the rescue. This popular app is great if you want to record voice, save a photo note or caption and scribble down some text. What’s nice about Evernote is that you can sync it with your Evernote account and access your notes from any device. Nice, huh?


Techies aren’t well-known for their cocktail mixing skills. But the techies also knows that if he or she did ever need to make a drink, all they’d have to do is download the app.


Drinks is that app. Drinks is based on a database containing the recipes for some 4,500 different beverages. You can look up drinks by ingredient, search recipes, make new recipes and so on. This app might not appeal to those who just like to have a pint, but it’s nice to know it’s there.
