10 Best Tablet Apps For 2022

10 Best Tablet Apps For 2022

November 16, 2022 Off By Berry Mathew

A tablet is so much more than just a big smartphone. While tablets tend to run the same operating systems and app ecosystems as their smartphone cousins, the fact remains that you can do so much more with a tablet than you ever can with a phone. Their larger screens, extended battery life, and range of compatible accessories mean that if you’re a creative individual or just someone who wants to get work done efficiently, a tablet is effectively a must-buy. Here are the 10 best tablet apps 2022 has to offer.

1. Emma

Available for both iOS and Android, Emma is the ideal financial management app. It’ll do everything from checking your subscriptions to keeping an eye on your investments, and it does it all with a clean, minimalist user interface that still manages to keep you informed. If you’ve taken out personal loans and you want to know the status of your repayments, Emma will take care of that for you, so if you’re in any way concerned about your finances, you need to download this one.

2. Photoshop Express

Adobe’s pricing model may not be entirely to your tastes, but there really is no denying that Photoshop Express is the best image editing software for tablets right now. It’s a beautiful, easy-to-use program that boasts much of the same functionality as its desktop alternative. If you’re using a tablet with a large screen like the iPad Pro, then editing images on it will become second nature, so you need a program to match your ambition. Grab this if you work with images in any capacity.

3. KineMaster

Let’s get one thing out of the way: if you want to get the most out of KineMaster, you’re going to need a paid subscription. That’s because the app slaps a big watermark on any video it makes with the free version. If you’re serious about video editing, though, the paid version of KineMaster is well worth it. There are a host of editing tools on offer, including everything you’d expect from high-end video editing software, so give this one a look if you’re a video aficionado.

4. Google Chrome

The built-in browser for iOS is all well and good, but if you want to get the most out of an iPad, you’re going to need Google Chrome. Android users are already well-served in this department; Chrome is the default Android browser already, so you likely don’t need to do anything if you’ve got an Android tablet. However, it’s worth hopping onto the iOS App Store to grab Chrome; it’s simply a better browsing experience than Safari, unless you’ve got other Apple devices.

5. Spotify

Spotify boasts a big, beautiful, and clean interface on tablet devices. There are, of course, other music streaming apps available, but for our money, Spotify beats them all in terms of pure user experience. It’s got millions of songs available, as well as a range of great original podcast programming and powerful playlist creation tools. However you like to consume your audio content, being without a Spotify subscription (or any other service subscription) in 2022 means you’re missing out.

6. Genshin Impact

This one’s strictly for the gamers. If you love to play video games, then missing out on Genshin Impact definitely isn’t a good idea, especially if you’re a tablet owner. The game looks gorgeous on a massive iPad Pro screen, and more powerful tablets will run it with absolutely no problems as well. It’s a free-to-play gacha RPG that allows you to explore a huge, beautiful world, dispatching monsters and solving puzzles as you go. Non-gamers should enjoy its range of beautiful scenery as well.

7. WavePad

Apple’s GarageBand software is all well and good, but if you want true audio editing power, then we’d recommend WavePad. It’s got a great interface that’s easy to understand and use, and it’s compatible with both iOS and Android, so no matter what kind of tablet you have, you’ll be able to get the most out of WavePad. You can add audio effects, chop and move around waveforms, and even take advantage of VST plugins to add a host of third-party effects and filters.

8. Flipboard

If you’ve got a tablet and you want to consume news in the most attractive way possible, then Flipboard is the app for you. Flipboard’s creators describe it as a “social magazine”, and that’s a great way to summarise what Flipboard does; it gathers and curates stories that it thinks you’ll like based on content you’ve already consumed. Flipboard’s artistic and aesthetic leanings make it the perfect news app for taking advantage of a big, beautiful tablet screen.

9. Google Earth

What better way to get a true sense of the scope and scale of the world in which we live than to download Google Earth on your tablet? A big screen makes for the ideal way to spin the globe, pick a random place, and gawp at the majesty and beauty of our planet. You’ll find detailed satellite imagery of pretty much everywhere in the world, as well as plenty of other features that make the app worth having. When you want to take a moment just to feel small, Google Earth is ideal.

10. Crunchyroll

Not only does Crunchyroll boast a whole suite of anime to watch, but you can also read manga, making it the perfect way to indulge your inner Japanophile. If you want to see some of the most beautifully-animated works to come from Japan, then Crunchyroll on a tablet is the best way to do it; the huge screen of your device will make images look crisp and clean, and the same goes for manga. A subscription is needed to get the most out of Crunchyroll, however.
