5 Apps That You Didn’t Know You Need

When Apple’s App Store opened on July 2008, it had 500 applications for your iPhone. Today, it has more than 2 Million. If you’re an Android user you’re probably heading to the Google Play Store, which now has more than 2.5 Million apps. So if you’re tired of scrolling through countless apps and spending hours reading reviews just to find a useful one that you’ll actually want to download, we hear you! That’s why we’ve put together this handy list of five apps that you didn’t know you needed – until now.


Waiting for the bus for what feels like hours on end? You need Transit. With this app, you can view all the possible transit options around you, including Uber and even car-sharing options like Car2Go. You can also enter directions and it will find the best route possible while listing all the other routes – so you can make a decision that suits you best. It’s the most efficient way to get around.

7 Minute Workout Training Challenge 

Need to get in shape but always find an excuse not to do it? If you’re finding excuse after excuse to avoid working out, then this app is for you. This exercise app provides you with a variety of quality 7-minute workouts that need no equipment. That means you can finally get fit in the comfort of your home without having to scroll through endless YouTube videos to find the ones you need. Much of the content is free, but you can get additional workouts for an additional fee. So, no more excuses – it’s a lot cheaper than a gym membership and only takes 7 minutes out of your morning or night! 

Otter Voice Notes

There’s nothing more annoying than having a brilliant idea come to mind but you can’t make a note because your hands are tied or you can’t find a paper and a pen. Otter Voice Notes makes taking notes a breeze. All you need to do is talk into it and the app will automatically transcribe what you say, using AI technology. It also makes recording a meeting or an important speech simple. Once the audio is recorded, it will transcribe it and allow you to listen to the recording. You can even search for a word and it will find it in all of your recordings. You can also share recordings and store them in a cloud for easy access. Note-taking has never been easier.


If you’re like most people, you struggle to keep a detailed account of your finances. Fortunately, there’s an app for that too! Mint allows you to connect all of your banking accounts, retirement accounts and loans directly into the app so that you can keep track of your money. Plus, you can track your spending habits by setting monthly limits on things like eating out, groceries, or gas and the app will let you know when you exceed your limit. It can also provide you with helpful tips as well as insights on where you stand based on your financial goals. 


No longer just a restaurant reservation app, Open Table will now let you do some pretty cool things. If you have Apple Pay downloaded, you can actually pay for your meal with OpenTable. It also has an Invite Guests feature that will let you send dinner invitations and share restaurant reservation details through iMessage with all your friends. Hungry yet?
