What Apps Do You Use?

Hi Everyone,

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, but I’m here with a question that can help everyone!  What apps do you like and use and recommend?  These can be for fun or function or things that help with your life!  For example, I used to have an app that would link to my emails and accounts and tell me when packages were delivered!  It doesn’t work anymore, so I need a new one I guess!  Any other recommendations?

Truck is a fan of cheeseburgers, gifs of cats, and saying the F word. She has lived a bunch of different places but the internet is by far her favorite. Her main complaint in life is that food noted as "spicy" on a menu is never spicy enough.

    The best weather app is Dark Sky. It costs $3 or so but is worth it. It tracks rain very specifically about an hour into the future, so you can see “Okay, raining hard now, but in 20 minutes it will switch to light rain for 15 minutes, so I should wait to run my errand.” It’s amazing.

  2. My apps are very boring! The one I’m currently most excited about it my bank’s, because I can deposit checks by taking pictures of them instead of actually going there, which you all know is a big deal for me. I also love all my white/ambient noise apps (myNoise is my favorite, but White Noise is good too).

    • Yes! Bank apps rule. My husband is a tech wizard but makes me handle depositing checks because he can’t figure out that sorcery.
      Agree that white noise apps are great. We had one that was a lifesaver for the kids when they were babies.

      I think mobile deposits on bank apps are one of the greatest app inventions ever!

    I use Trello to keep track of projects and to do lists.

    Headspace is good for meditation, but I’ll be honest, I haven’t used it in a while.

    I want to get Duolingo up and running again. I might try to learn Polish.

    Seconding Duolingo, I’ve learned a surprising amount of French while drinking espresso in the morning.

    I have the Longreads app for in-depth articles and essays. Also Kindle for iPhone for insomnia reading.

    Spotify for music, and I think I’m going to start listening to podcasts there instead of the iPhone podcast app.

    Hotel apps are great for checking in and getting and getting a mobile key on your phone.

    Scrabble.

    I couldn’t live without Overdrive, the app to get eBooks from the library. Although they updated to something called Libby, I’m still on Overdrive. I have books on hold all the time and when it’s my turn to read them it’s like getting a present. I go through a book a week now because it’s all free!

    I just started using Fareness, an app to look at good flight deals. Google Flights is still the best, but this gives me some inspiration for which destinations might be affordable at the moment.

    Since I got rid of cable and no longer have a DVR, I use an app called TV Time to track shows I want to watch so I know when stuff is on without checking the TV guide every day.

    Oh this is my absolute best recommendation for anyone traveling internationally: MOBILE PASSPORT APP. Incredible. You fill out all the customs info upon return to the United States, then you go through the same line as Global Entry people (at least at LAX), which is empty. Except people pay and do an interview for GE, whereas this app is free. Instead of waiting for those kiosks to get a piece of paper to hand to a customs officer, you just flash the app and stroll right through.
