Whether you want an alarm that syncs with your body clock or a to-do list you can speak to, these are the apps you’ll need to make your smartphone smarter
The latest generation of smartphones comes with a panoply of apps to get you started, from email and photography to navigation, weather and video-calling services.

Here are 20 examples that will improve your smartphone’s stock features, and in some cases provide the functionality that is puzzlingly missing from apps in 2017’s starter packs.
