Thanks to the improvements made in our smartphones over the recent years, the apps available for download are far more advanced than they ever have been before. Social media apps are incredibly popular, as are shopping apps like eBay. Then there is the option of conducting your banking enquiries with an app, or even finding love. The selection of apps available is comprehensive, and there is an application for almost everything.

With the new year firmly underway, an array of popular apps are being continually downloaded and are on the receiving end of a number of plaudits as a result. Some apps have been around a while but continue to offer new and improved updates, while others are slowly rising up the ranks after being recently released or adding another functionality to their arsenals, be it additional sharing tools or a better all-around interface.

All you need is access to Google Play or AppStore, and there is a wide variety of apps for an array of different genres. E-commerce apps will always pull in the crowds, and then you have internet browsers like Chrome where you can get your racing and slots game on by checking more at or surf the web for a bargain online. There are apps for beauty, fitness, travel, art, cooking, dancing, drinking, gaming, movies, and a whole lot more. We really are living in a golden age for innovation when you assess the sheer amount of applications we can now access.

With that in mind, here is a look at some of the best apps for your phone in 2021 at the moment.
