There’s no disputing it—technology makes our lives easier.
Sure, it comes with a set of pros and cons, but it’s a massive help for the most part.
With over 2 million apps in app stores, users are faced with what seems like never-ending scrolling through this hefty list of apps. How do you know which ones are worth trying unless you go through the process of downloading them, testing them, and either keeping them or immediately deleting them?
This process is time-consuming and annoying, leaving many stressed and ready to toss the whole phone out.
An exaggeration, sure, but you get the point.
We figured we’d lend a cyber hand and give you the scoop on five apps you need on your phone right now. What makes these apps unique?
We feel it’s a well-rounded list that helps us achieve balance, productivity, and a little fun.
So, let’s check them out.
Why not start out with a little social media fun?
TikTok has literally taken the world by storm with over 2 billion downloads and shows no signs of slowing unless Trump has his way and gets rid of the app.
This app allows you to create lip-synching videos and create some cool edits all at the same time. Users have the ability to make duet videos with other users and also the capability to go live.
The videos are absolutely hilarious, but this is all the more reason you have to watch out! You’ll fall down the TikTok rabbit hole and lose track of time, but it’s great to give yourself a break with a few laughs here and there.
It seems like the pandemic we’re navigating will be around for quite some time, especially with cold and flu season approaching. This means stress and anxiety levels will continue to rise and be a concern for most of us.
This app is free (for the most part), and it asks you personal questions to provide the best meditation process for you. Each session runs between 3-5 minutes when you’re starting out, so it’s perfect for beginners.
Oh, and you have two voices to choose from, and both have soothing vocals that make the process easier in itself.
One thing quarantine has taught us is we don’t have to physically go into stores anymore when running errands.
This is where Curbit helps out!
The app contains hundreds of participating retailers to make life a little easier during such a challenging time. All you need to do is place your order and pull into the designated pick up area.
Also, the app uses GPS technology so team members can see right when you pull up, so your food or drink isn’t sitting there getting cold, melting, etc. Plus, you don’t have to worry about excessive wait times because the app lets them know precisely when you’re pulling in the parking lot.
This app is free, and you can find some of your favorite restaurants, delis, and coffee shops there.
Whether you’ve never heard of CBD, are curious about it, or you’re an enthusiast, CBD+me is excellent to have on your phone.
Going back to the current state of the country, it seems moving forward, it never hurts to have a direct line to CBD knowledge and experiences. This app allows you to track your experiences with certain CBD products, and you can see the same for others!
It’s like this; let’s take CBD gummies, for example.
Sure, they’re trendy, and CBD Gummies are pretty tasty. Still, they affect people differently based on multiple factors such as age, weight, metabolism, the concentration of the product, and more.
With this app, you have the inside knowledge going in before you actually try the product. It never hurts to be a member of different types of online communities, and CBD is no exception.
5. PocketLife Calendar
Who doesn’t love a stylish calendar?
This app is an over-organized, over-achievers dream. It’s compatible with Google, Outlook, iCal, Yahoo, iCloud, with fast syncing availability. You also have the ability to customize your backgrounds, create a notification widget center (more cool stuff to do with ios 14 update), send email notifications, and much more.
This app is free and available for iPhone, iPad, and Apple watches.
These days, we either have way too much time or too little time on our hands, so being organized makes life seamless.
Many app roundup lists we read focus on one area of life. Right now, more than ever, we need to utilize technology to the best of our ability to maintain balance and focus.
These are just a few of our favorites, but there are tons more, right?
