Qatar has one of the worlds highest smartphone penetration rate. In 2011, Qatar already had more smartphone per capita than countries like Singapore and Kuwait, according to a report by ICTQatar.

Mobile application market flourished since then. Some apps really make life easier and more enjoyable. Here are some of our favorites:

Uber

Finding a cab could be tricky in Doha. Uber offers a creative solution to this problem by matching you with the closest Uber driver upon request. This app is linked to your local mobile number and your bank account. Flat rate applies.

2048 and 3+

Simple games go viral. Recently, 2048 became a new addictive game. It is a single-player online game created in March 2014 by 19-year-old Italian web developer Gabriele Cirulli, in which the objective is to slide numbered tiles on a grid to combine them and create a tile with the number 2048.

This game also has a Chrome App.

A similar game called 3+ is also very addictive.

CamScanner

CamScanner turns your phone camera into a scanner. This app is perfect when you need to send a scan copy of a document. The app allows you to take a photo of a document. It intelligently format the photo into a digital file and can then recognize the text contained in the document in case you want to search for it later.
