5 Apps Everyone Should Have

Haven’t downloaded new apps in a while? Have 6 screens of random apps on your phone? No matter what kind of iPhone user you are, check out these five free apps that will keep your thumbs busy until the end of the semester.

1.    Vine

This is the latest in a series of social networking apps such as Instagram and Snapchat, but it’s for videos! You can connect to all your friends and share videos with three different parts. It seems like more people are joining every day, so check this one out soon.

2.    Dropbox

If you’re sick of always e-mailing your self stuff to get from your computer on your phone or to a school computer, this is the perfect app for you. Create an account, download the program for your computer, and you can drag documents into your own online storage unit. If you need to check a PowerPoint or get a picture from your laptop to your phone, simply open the app on your phone!

3.    4 Pics 1 Word

This game is admittedly as addicting as Temple Run, but it will actually make you believe you are working some brain cells. Use your critical thinking skills to figure out what four pictures have in common and type it in as fast as you can to earn the most points!

4.    8tracks

You can finally access all your favorite songs on the go for free with the 8tracks app! Search a mood or a band to get a list of suggestions and listen away. This one is perfect for when you get sick of your workout playlist or want to switch up a study mix.

5.    Find my iPhone

If you don’t already have this app, you’re in for a treat after the next Bundy party. Login to your Apple or iCloud account after downloading the app and you’re all set. The next time you can’t find your phone after a rough weekend (or just when you think you left in the Science Center) go to www.icloud.com and type in your Apple username and password. Click on the Find my iPhone link to get an extremely detailed map of campus with a picture of your phone exactly where it is located!
