Fall is here, which means it’s about time to hunker down at home and prepare for the cold weather. That also means you have more time to spend on the Internet, whether it’s for work or fun.
And no matter what you’re doing on the computer, there is a Google Chrome app that can make your life better in some capacity. From organizational and productivity-based apps to fun games and activities that the whole family can enjoy, you’ll definitely want to take a look at some of the best options out there.
With that in mind, we’ve compiled five of our favorite – and the most popular – Chrome web apps out there this season. Be sure to check them out!
1) Google Classroom
A new school year is underway, and being able to work efficiently is certainly on the mind of teachers everywhere. With the Google Classroom app, teachers are able to save time, keep classes organized and improve communication with students. By weaving together Google Docs, Drive and Gmail, a teacher can easily create, collect and monitor assignments, provide efficient feedback, communicate easily with students (make announcements, ask questions, etc.) and stay organized overall.
There’s nothing better than a solid game that helps you pass the time. And there’s nothing simpler, or more fun, than a good snake-based game. Snakes is a popular Chrome game, and it’s exactly what you expect – eat the food, grow as long as you can and try not to crash. If you somehow haven’t played this type of game before – trust us, it’s addictive.
3) Planner 5D
Say you want to create your own interior floor plans, maybe for a brand-new kitchen or addition to the home, but you don’t have any design skills. No worries! Planner 5D makes it incredibly easy to create your own floor plans and designs, allowing you to even add real furniture from integrated manufacturers’ catalogs. With the app, you can work on the same project with other users, export high-resolution images, share your project looks with your friends and more.
4) Build With Chrome
Who doesn’t love building with LEGO® bricks? Using Google Maps as your base, you can now build your own LEGO® world inside Google Chrome. Simply click to place a brick of your choice and start building – the possibilities are endless and you’ll feel like a kid again as you stave off that pesky thing called work.
There’s an insane amount of stuff to read and watch on the Internet. Whether it’s an article or a recipe to save for later, there just isn’t enough time in the day to get to everything. Which is why you need Pocket, a popular Chrome app that won the 2014 Webby Award for Best Productivity App (in other words, it’s good). When you use Pocket, all of your content goes to one place, so you can check it out anytime and on any device. You don’t even need to be online to access it. The app has a great layout and it makes it easy to search for what you need (because your collection is going to get large), and best of all, it’ll change the way you manage your productivity on the Internet.
