Google Translate

Translate languages in real-time on your mobile phone

Juan Ageitos- tech marketer #spanglish
Super helpful when visiting far corners of the world. You can even have a conversation with the locals and they'll love your effort to communicate. You can download languages for offline use.

Try the camera. It's amazing
John Ababseh- Epiphany Enthusiast
Never know when you're abroad or get stuck in a situation where a quick translate could be necessary

Google Calendar

Spend less time managing your day, now on iOS

Ben Tossell- newCo
Gotta say that having Google Calendar everywhere just does it for me - I don't need a lot of the bells and whistles that others may.

Old faithful...
Matthew Blode
Within Google calendar, you can schedule an event or reminder as "All-day" which sets in on a day but not a specific time.

Google Photos

Automatic backup and unlimited storage for all your photos

Have an access to your pictures from wherever you are, get in touch with people over a topic, share your captures with others, put in your interest and get a feed filled with amazing photos and ideas, based on the connections you created! All that in a simple app called Google+ Photos!

Charounson Saintilus
It doesn't meet all your requirements, but consider the Google Photos app on mobile. If you enable the assistant, the AI can create albums and videos for you from the photos you've taken on a trip. You can also create albums and share them with the world or particular people.
Kesava Mandiga- Curious cat. Writer. Explorer.
Though Google positions it as a backup solution, Photos is a pretty solid photo management app for Android even if you don't use the backup option.
Anne-Laure Le Cunff- Founder @ Lysa. Ex-Google.
My favorite app for managing photos and saving space on my phone. With image recognition, location, and editing right trough the app, it makes it super easy to search through old photos, or to create collages and videos. It has lots of cool features but is still very lightweight, and it's very convenient to share with anyone, even if they don't have a Google… See more

Google Hangouts

New web app for Google Hangouts cross-device messaging app

Vladimir Cezar
It is free, reliable and works on both mobile and desktop.

Cross-platform is key here. I'm always on my iPhone or iPad, while other team members share screens from a Mac or PC.

Also has issues, but also free and most people have Google Accounts.

Google Slides Q&A

Helps presenters connect with their audiences

Anne-Laure Le Cunff- Founder @ Lysa. Ex-Google.
Google Slides Q&A makes it super easy to connect with your audience, receive feedback, and let people vote on the questions they'd like the speaker to answer. You can also let the audience ask questions anonymously. The best part: it works with any mobile device.
Ben Clark- I really fucking hate my username
Your audience can ask questions with a link and you can answer them and put them on screen

Google Trips

Exploring the world with all your travel info in one place

Lachlan Campbell- Hack Club design/JS—HS 🎓—they/them—🌈
Google recently released an app for traveling! I don't love it but it surfaces reservations out of Gmail automatically.
Jack Dweck- Product Manager at Unroll.Me
I agree with Lachlan. Google Trips has become indispensable when traveling. It automatically pulls in all of your travel info from Gmail (flights, accommodations, reservations, etc...) and let's you download an easy to read itinerary.
Chakkaradeep- Senior Program Manager, Microsoft
Hands down best app if you want to explore the area you are traveling. You can also download the details offline so you can plan something in your flight before you reach the destination.

Smarter, easier, and more assistive music streaming service

Napoleon Suarez- Founder, Fishbox
The subscription for this also gets you a YouTube Red subscription. No ads in YouTube is everything!
Lukas Rathmann- UX Designer @ PurePresents
It's also worth noting that you can upload your own stuff in case it's not available from them.
Francis Kim- Full Stack Human
I subscribed for YouTube Red and got Google Play Music for free

PhotoScan by Google

Photos from the past, meet scanner from the future

Austin Sandmeyer- Thinker/Student/Rockstar
I'd recommend PhotoScan too... Will take you time but you have no worries around losing them along the way.
ProductPearson
Really good app. Scans well and doesn't have the flash/glare issue that other apps seems to due to an algorithm that removes it. It's clever, but takes time if you have lots and lots of photos.
Anshuman Chadda- MD MPH; Physician Entrepreneur
DIY way to digitize old photos. I would recommend you use a really HQ camera and spend a couple of hours getting these photos digitized. Google Photos is Legit if you haven't realized yet. For individual photos, I would recommend using one off services like Upwork or Fiverr.
