Common iOS and Android apps used on both systems

 

Common apps between iOs and Android

 

If choosing either Samsung/Android or iOS, look at the tasks that are needed to be performed and if the apps to do those tasks are accessible.

 

Two specific apps which are not currently available on Android are the Microsoft Sound Scape and Seeing AI apps.

 

As the Seeing AI app currency mode doesn’t work with Australian currency, Cash Reader is recommended for both iOS/Android.

 

Where it  is not obvious what the apps listed are for, there is a short description.
