10 essential apps for your tablet

10 essential apps for your tablet

The thing that makes tablets really useful is the apps. Unfortunately, there are literally millions of apps available. Fear not! I've done the research for you, and am bringing you the apps that every tablet owner needs to install. By the way, these apps are also great for your smartphone.

1. Don't lose your tablet
Sometimes your tablet or smartphone can grow legs of its own and wander off. Or, sometimes it has help from some sticky-fingered thief. Whatever the reason, Android Device Manager (Free; Android) or Find My iPhone (Free; iOS) can help you locate your lost gadget, lock it, and if worse comes to worst, you can remotely wipe your mobile gadget.

2. Manage your money
Creating and sticking to a budget is important, but time-consuming. You could spend hours slaving away over a checkbook or computer program. Simplify things with the Mint app (Free; Android, iOS). It links to your bank account so you always know just how much money you have. Then you can set up spending categories with a budget for each and in no time you'll have a real-time report on your financial health.
