Hello SOTGC community,
We all have limited space on our phones, and, for those of us that have an iPhone with only 16G, you know how precious every ounce of space is. I have a limited amount of apps on my phone because, lets face it, I need more space for a variety of songs that will keep me motivated throughout my workouts and I take more pictures than my library can handle.
With that said, I cleaned up my apps, but there are five fantastic apps I cannot live without.
- The first one is Uber – a transportation network app that connects passengers with drivers such as cabs and black cars. How often are we in a city where we don’t know a taxi number, or, once we do, we have to wait a certain amount of time before one arrives? Uber makes it all that much more efficient. Not only does it show you all the taxies, black cars, and SUVs in your immediate area, but it also confirms via email the arrival time and picture of your driver. Also, for those of us that are uncomfortable taking a late-night cab, it gives us a sense of security that we can also share with family and friends.
- The second one that was recommended to me by a friend is called BandsinTown. I am usually the one that finds out my favorite band was just in town the day after. No longer am I left behind because now I have an app that gives me a notification of what bands or artists are in my local area based on my playlist already on my phone. So, now I don’t have to do all the work because I have an app that will do it for me.
- Pinterest has never made it easier for us to pin all these great food choices, however, once we get to the store, our grocery list falls apart because who has time to read all the labels? I know I am guilty of buying something because it says organic or zero grams sugar, even though it might be full of saturated fat or carbs. I now have an app that helps me make healthier choices. Fooducate is like having a personal dietitian whenever, wherever. The app allows you to scan your produce and immediately tells you how good your choice is or if a better alternative exists. Fooducate prevented me from buying butter that had a D- rating, and, instead, I got one with a B+ rating.
- For those of us who either have a hectic schedule or travel quite a bit, we know how precious every minute is. (I was taught time management does not exist because you cannot control time but instead its your energy commitment). When push comes to shove our workouts are sometimes the ones that don’t make the cut. With The Original 7 Minute app (a Johnson and Johnson app), we can squeeze in a quick workout as short as 7 minutes. It’s not about the quantity of time we spent at the gym but the quality. Even if we have 30 minutes in the day, the time it takes us to drive to a gym and change, we can finish up a good intensity workout at home. We are just a quick workout away from a good mood 🙂
- And lastly, the DailyQuote app that puts a smile on my face. I know I can use a pick-me up quote at times and oh, how often is it fitting to my exact situation. The DailyQuote app sends you a quote of the day to your phone at whatever time you set it at. I have mine scheduled to go off at 8 am, just in time to set the tone for the day. Attitude is also a choice we have, so let’s make it count.
I now shared with you my favorite apps that made my life easier. Join the SOTGC community and share your favorite apps that you have come to love. I am certain I am missing out on a few more so help me fill up my 16 G iPhone.
