App #1: Waze

Waze is truly one of a kind. It is a navigation app that live streams traffic. Not only that, it tells you where cops are, where potholes are, construction, traffic jams, where the cheapest gas is around you and more!

It's available for free on iPhone, Android, and Windows phones!

#2 Venmo

Venimo allows you to pay and charge your friends. You can say good-bye to being that a**hole that has to split the bill 6 times at a restaurant.

Did you know you can stalk your friends with this? It will track their transactions (but not the amount tho,) which show up on the feed.

Available for Android phones and iPhones!

#3 Afterlight

Selfies are becoming ever-so-popular. Admit it, you probably took one yourself. But for the ones who obsessively like to post these selfies to Instagram, the app Afterlight is for you. What it doe's is that it first locates your phone then doe's a 25 mile radius search, to help you find a doctor nearby.


The app just makes your pictures really cool by adding borders around it. But it's only available for the iPhone.


#4 NYT Now

Written by the same people who write the New York Times, this app will provide you a summary of some of the top news stories!

Available for the iPhone

This app is really nice!
