We live in a world where we have an opportunity to use the little boxes that are in our pockets to book flights, hotels, cars, control our TVs, deliver groceries, request taxi rides and so on. Isn’t that amazing? We all know that there are millions of mobile apps available in the app stores, and there is a little chance that any of us even heard about a quarter of the apps that are available to us.

Yes, we all know about Twitters, Ubers, Facebooks and the Instagrams of the world, but what about those hidden gems and lesser known apps? What about new apps that are extremely useful, but nobody has heard of them? A lot of cool and helpful apps are destined to slip under the radar. So that wouldn’t happen, we decided to share with you five apps that are not trending but are still awesome and helpful to users.
