Your average college student is stretched way too thin and feels that free time is a concept that only exists during breaks and summer vacation (if that). If you can relate to this, I don’t need to tell you twice that technology is an essential tool in accomplishing all you need to check off your list on a daily basis. Norton Antivirus for our computers and sturdy cases for our phones are just about as important as having insurance on our vehicles. Yes, it’s a silly thought but that just goes to show how present these devices are in our lives and how they help us to achieve the incredible amount of tasks and assignments that fill up our week days and even weekends. So, if you aren’t already benefiting from some great apps that can save you big on time and money, it’s time to clear up some space on your phones or tablets and get these on there.
It’s the fast growing alternative to your classic yellow cab that is taking over the transportation network industry and saving passengers loads of cash on rides. Request a ride from point A to point B for a fraction of the cost of your average taxi or share a ride with others at an even lower fare. Verified drivers are constantly being rated by passengers and vice versa- it’s safe, user friendly and cost efficient. If you’re like me and you couldn’t afford taxi services in the past, you’ll appreciate this innovation because it makes it possible for you to get around quickly, avoiding long bus rides and walking long distances.
This app is like pandora and itunes combined, but even better. Spotify allows you to create playlists from practically any musical artist out there and then play it on repeat. It is also known for its own excellent playlists in any genre you can think of and then some, and even provides playlists for your specific mood. For a small monthly payment, you can upgrade to Spotify Premium and cut out all of the ads and even download as many playlists and albums as you want to be able to play them without internet or data. This service is one of my personal “must-have’s” so that I can always have my favorite music on hand.
