10 Best Google Chrome Apps

Google Chrome apps are just like apps on your phone. Easy to install and fun to use. You can browse through thousands of apps categorized in the Chrome Web Store. They appear on the new tab page of Chrome. Here's a list of 10 of the best apps for Google Chrome. 
[Note: I haven't included games in this list. I plan to do a seperate list for those soon, so stay tuned!]

 1.The Weather Channel
Download here

A simple click of the app gives you the current weather conditions as well as predictions for the week, or the next couple of hours. You can also save up to nine locations(with nicknames) to refer to at a glance. Detailed forecast provides temperature, a radar map, sky conditions, wind speed/direction, humidity, dew point, barometric pressure, visibility, and a UV Index.

2. Hipmunk
Download here

This app is brilliant when it comes to planning trips. In minutes, it'll give you information about the best flights & hotels at your destination.
Although I'm no traveler, I still enjoy this app when thinking about imaginary trips.The flights are arranged according to either prices, agony, duration and timings.
Flight Listing

The hotels are shown as points on a map, complete with rates and reviews. They can also be sorted in a list by price, reviews and distance.

Hipmunk also allows for tabbed browsing, so you can go through several flights and hotel listings at a time.

Plus it also has live chat help. Although, you won't be needing it.

3. Earbits Radio
Download here

In the mood for some new music? This app streams ad-free music, similar to a band/artist of your choice. It has no membership requirement. You can also chat with others online.

4. Google Dictionary by Google
Download here

I think the title says it all. This dictionary gives you definitions from lots of websites and synonyms. Either by Double-clicking any word (a small pop-up bubble displays the definition). Or by using the toolbar dictionary. It retrieves these definitions online because of which its response time depends on your internet speed.

5. Pixlr-o-Matic
Download Here

This app is easily my favourite. It's amazing with transforming photos into vintage retro snaps. You can add three layers to alter your photo by adding filters, lightning and borders. You can do this to an existing photo or directly from the webcam.
Having fun with Pixlr-o-Matic

6. Read Later Fast
Download here

This is pretty handy when you want to read or refer to some online article later on. The app saves the page, making it accessible to you offline. A click of the app will open up your articles pretty quickly.

7. Aviary's Image Editor
Download Here

This app is an image editor with over 30 rich editing tools, which works with layers similar to photoshop. It can be used for basic editing upto complicated manipulation of photos. It's amazing how it has all these great features, packed into your browser.

8. Tweetdeck
Download here

This app opens up your Twitter, Facebook, inbox and more all in one window. Further more, you get a pop-up notification bubble for any new notifications on your social networks.
Although the viewing space feels cramped, my favourite feature of tweetdeck would be updating your twitter and Facebook at the same time. Also the pop-up notifications are pretty cool.

9. PsykoPaint
Download Here

Got some pretty cool brushes and styles to work with. Either on an existing picture or a new one.

10. Remember the Milk
Download Here

This is not your average to-do list app. Having an app available on your phone, email, outlook; it syncs constantly across all platforms. It's remarkable features help make the experience fun by things such as organizing by tags/dates/priority, share with friends & search.
