Google Translate

Translate languages in real-time on your mobile phone

John Ababseh- Epiphany Enthusiast
When on the go, and in an area without your native tongue speakers, google translate is a must for simple phrases.
Aidha Shaikh- Software Product Manager
When traveling to places where I'm not fluent in the local language I find GTranslate helps a lot - especially using the camera to read food labels or signs!
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

Nirant Kasliwal- Maker, Engineer, <3 from India
This is probably the most common tool which is not used well. To me the formula is simple now: Better you manage your calendars the more you can have fun!
Omer Molad- Co-founder and CEO @ Vervoe
Pretty easy to use Google's calendar function for scheduling discussions across multiple timezones. Video link is added automatically.
Laura Roeder- Founder, MeetEdgar & Ropig
TIME BLOCKING is everything! So this is my most important tool for making my resolutions happen.

Google Keep

Save your thoughts, wherever you are

Tejas Kinger- SaaS Product Marketing @ Freshworks Inc
Possibly the best tool to use if you're already locked into the Google apps ecosystem. Love the fact that it syncs with my account and I can access it across my devices. The ability ti share notes and review them inside Google Docs is an added bonus. : )
Anne-Laure Le Cunff- Entrepreneur
I use Google Keep for quick notes, and Google Docs for things I'm already working on and want to keep structured. Google Keep makes it super easy to share your notes and review them inside of Google Docs when you need them.
Arun Sathiya- Happiness Engineer, Automattic
Totally my choice of note taking app too.

Seems like you are looking for something like Google Photos?
recon- Python developer
I'm pretty sure Google Photos quite literally replaced Picasa. Anyways, Photos is absolutely fantastic for categorising and displaying your photos. The AI to organise and separate objects, people, and pets is scarily good (and useful).
Prakash- Software Architect
The single app to backup all your photos and share with others. Special AI features with Assistant and ability to search within the photos.

Google Hangouts

New web app for Google Hangouts cross-device messaging app

Tejas Kinger- SaaS Product Marketing @ Freshworks Inc
Screen sharing over Google Hangouts. Nothing works better than this in terms of ease of use and simplicity. :)
Anne-Laure Le Cunff- Entrepreneur
Hangouts is now more targeted to business users, but it still does the job if you want something that's platform-agnostic, and using your Gmail address to log in.
Anshuman Chadda- MD MPH; Physician Entrepreneur
Let's not forget the most ubiquitous app everyone has that is also free and has tons of features like free phone calls, screen sharing etc

Helps presenters connect with their audiences

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
Anne-Laure Le Cunff- Entrepreneur
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.

Google Trips

Exploring the world with all your travel info in one place

Ian Rumac- Android Developer @ Undabot
Google trips is amazing! Instead of switching between emails and maps and googling stuff I need, I can just use one app that has it all - automatically gets tickets and hotel bookings from my email, downloaded an offline map, pinpointed the most important things on it and it even suggests stuff you can do. It's awesome.
Ivan Dimitrov- Growth Hacker @ pCloud
It shows you the best places to visit and creates an agenda if you need one!
T- Just another Frontend Developer
It's really good!

Google Play Music

Smarter, easier, and more assistive music streaming service

thomas ross- Startup analyser and investor
Google Play. It is much better than Spotify for the following main reasons: The app is more stable and doesn’t freeze or crash - this is very important for me. It is really annoying when Spotify freezes, and takes a long time to close the app and re-start, and this happens often. I find the collection of music is greater on Google Play. Its quick and easy … See more

Google's music subscription service. If you've used the Play Music app in the past, you'll be right at home.
Napoleon Suarez- Founder, Fishbox
The subscription for this also gets you a YouTube Red subscription. No ads in YouTube is everything!

PhotoScan by Google

Photos from the past, meet scanner from the future

Aaron M. Villegas- OntheSpot
test
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.
Ash Pearson- Product Manager
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.
