    "Google Maps doesn't need any explaining, it is hands down one of the best and the original navigational tools. I never hesitate to pull out my phone and use the Google Maps feature,, even if I'm not near wifi I have my local city saved."

    "Spotify is a great music app with tons of songs available. In order to play music off line you will need to get the premium service, but this will allow you to download up to three thousand songs per device. Great when you need music but don't have a wifi connection."

    "This is a lifesaver! I drive in places where I often go offline and when I lose my navigational ability on my phone, I feel like I am screwed! Enter Mapfactor Navigator! This offline GPS app has so many offline maps and it has enabled me to continue navigating and not get lost even when I lose service. My phone service is awful so this has really helped. I don't know what I would do without it. "

    "Copilot is an excellent app if you travel in areas that don't have the best cell reception. Having lived in an area for several years that had spotty reception once you left the middle of town, Copilot can be a life saver and I highly recommend."

    "A great map tool where you don't need to be connected to the internet prior to the inital download. I found that it works much like a GPS device. There is a bit of a learning curve, but it is worth it. "

    "I use Pocket for EVERYTHING! In this day and age, there is so much information to be consumed. I am a knowledge junkie, but I never have the time to read everything I want to. So, I scroll through the headlines to be up to date, then save the articles I really want to read. The best part is that I can read the saved articles any time I want, even without any cell service or internet connection."

    "FeedMe is a pretty basic rss news manager. It does what it claims to but I found that there were sync problems on certain devices I own. I need to use it longer but right now it just feels average. I can say that the user interface is pleasant to use."
