As much as we hate to admit it, our phone is constantly attached to our hands. Ever since Apple revolutionized the idea of apps, our phones became our personal assistant, physical trainer, healthcare doctor, teacher and mom – all in one. While it’s tempting to fill up our phones with apps like Angry Birds, Draw Something and Temple Run, there’s four FREE apps that every collegiette should have that’ll make life just a little easier. Thank you, modern technology.
My Days – Period & Ovulation Calendar: Ever wondered when your next period was coming but couldn’t remember when your last period was? My Days makes it really easy to keep track of your periods and even when to expect your next one. It’s a lifesaver knowing when to expect a period during a major event or vacation.
Sincerely Ink Cards: How do our moms always know when to send greeting cards so they reach people in time? With Sincerely Ink Cards, you too can send beautiful greeting cards directly to your loved ones straight from your phone. For only $1.99, the app sends a real greeting card through the good old postal system in as little as two clicks. The result? A beautiful greeting card personalized with your photo and personal message for every major holiday, or just to say thank you or congrats.
Shazam: Now you never have to wonder for very long what that awesome song was being played over the radio, at a restaurant, at a bar or even at your friend’s party. Shazam lets you sample music and discovers the artist and track name for you. It even lets you buy the song directly from iTunes.
Dropbox: Long gone are the days of carrying around a USB stick. With Dropbox you can upload documents, photos, videos and music straight from your computer and it’ll show up when you log into Dropbox from any other computer. The smartphone app makes it even easier to take all your content with you anywhere you go and access it even when there’s not a computer available.
