5 Apps I Can’t Live Without (iPhone 6)
So I think I’m kind of a traditionalist. I don’t really explore the app store or download every hot new app out there. That being said, there are still a few apps that help me with my day-to-day. Aside from social media apps (which I use frequently), here are 5 iPhone apps I can’t live without.
1. Pandora (Free)
I haven’t jumped on the Spotify wagon yet, and I’m still using the free version of Pandora because I find the interface very simple, and because I don’t necessarily crave specific music more than I like to listen to one genre or another. Pandora’s radio stations handle this well. Whether it’s music on a plane or train or impromptu dance parties with my kids (yes, I have a Kidz Bop station) I love Pandora for it all.
2. YouTube (Free)
When I do crave a song that reminds me, “of that time when…”, or I need to look up how to do pretty much anything, YouTube is my go-to. And of course, with thousands of nostalgic music videos, it also always proves to be a great distraction for a few minutes.
3. Slack (Free)
We use slack at MB3 to keep in touch and stay on task, so it’s an awesome direct-line to the office when I’m on-the-go. With instant messaging through group chats or direct conversations, it eliminates back and forth emails and pushes multi-tasking to a whole other level for me.
4. Cluster (Free)
I recently found Cluster thanks to a group of my friends. It’s all about group photo sharing – you can create a private event and invite people to share their photos and videos from said event all in one place. For me, since I never remember to take pictures, it’s an awesome way to relive occasions and memories from my friends and family’s photos and videos.
5. Beat the Traffic (Free)
I know that Waze is the new craze, but I use Beat the Traffic. I’m on the go a LOT, especially to NYC and Boston, and Beat the Traffic is does a great job of offering the most efficient routes and allowing me to, well… beat the traffic!
