The average smartphone user has 40 apps on their phone. Younger users are at the top of the curve, with an average of 67 apps.

It's estimated that there is more that 3 million apps available, on either the App Store or the Google Play Store. You don't have time to go through them all, so you don't know what you could be missing.

Today, we present you with three underrated software nuggets that you absolutely should download.

what3words - Easily identify a precise location. The app is simply a map of the world, divided into 3x3 metre squares. Each square has a unique combination of three words in it. You can share or search for words to find an exact location. This can be used to meet up with friends, guide people at an event, or help emergency services and car breakdown services find you. Using three words is a lot easier than sharing coordinates. The app works offline, and allows you to save key locations.

MacroFactor - A science-backed nutrition tracker, bought to you by Stronger By Science - a well respected name in the fitness industry. You may have used MyFitnessPal or Cronometer for tracking your food intake. MacroFactor takes it to the next level by using smart algorithms which make dynamic weekly changes to your plan, so that you can reach your health goals. The app makes it easy to log and track your diet and progress in detail and with accuracy. There's tons of options and customisation, which allows you to choose between low-carb, keto, performance, or balanced diet preferences. MacroFactor was released last year, and is constantly being updated, developed and improved. This app costs $5.99 per month.

iNaturalist - A nature app that helps you identify plants and wildlife. Do you ever see something cool in nature, but have no idea what it is? Simply whip out the app and snap a photo of a plant or animal. A community of over 400,000 naturalists and scientists will help you identify the species, and share some information about it. By recording and sharing your observations, you'll create research quality data for scientists working to better understand and protect nature.

Enjoy the apps, and have a great week.
