Today we shed their soul balm and tell you about the applications that have long been available in Google Play , but no App Store because of restrictions imposed by Apple. Many owners of iOS-gadgets is the envy of what they are, of course, would never admit it.
Tasker ($ 3)
Tasker app will make your “smart” phone even smarter. It allows you to create profiles that automatically perform specific tasks when the situation meets the criteria. To make things clearer, let us explain this a couple of examples. Thus, the application can automatically launch the music player when you plug in headphones to the phone or gadget translates into silent mode as soon as you walk into an office. Profiles can be created countless, and there are even special sites for those who are too lazy to create their own profiles.
It looks like fun for geeks, but if you set it up right, your life will turn into a solid «It just works». If Apple has not made sure that the phone was able to automatically respond to SMS-message when you sleep, you could take care of it yourself. But, unfortunately, you can not.
Astro File Manager (Free)
If you use your iPhone or iPad to generate content, then you already know how it is sometimes difficult to get the resulting file from the application. So you have to cross your fingers in the hope that there is a phone or tablet application that can open the file or something to export.
Although in terms of creating documents Android is not far away, of course, it offers a lot more options for interaction with files. Astro File Manager app gives you access to all files stored in your phone. With this program you can transfer files from internal memory to SD-card and vice versa. About cloud storage, of course, does not even mention the need.

Why would you want such a function? For example, if you are too lazy and do not want to reach for the phone to reply to a message, or copy any file to it, you can do it right from your computer. Another reason to envy for the “Yabloko”.
SwiftKey ($ 4)

Apple is gradually opening up an API for developers, so it’s possible that one day counterparts SwiftKey and AirDroid may appear on your iPhone or iPad.
