Apps of the Moment

We live in a world where our phones are typically attached to our hip (I'm guilty of this) and we use it for more than just communication. It has become our source for news updates, movie times, music and the occasional funny cat video. So today I'm discussing my favorite apps of the moment.

My friends and I are obsessed with sending each other funny gifs that represent whatever we're talking about at the moment. For those of you who don't know, gifs are tiny animated pictures, typically taken from various social media like television or movies. Giphy is a free app that allows you to search for a variety of different gifs and download them straight to your phone. 

A few months ago I bought a Roku and my life was instantly changed. I'm a huge TV buff (not my proudest accomplishment) and purchasing the $50 Roku allows me to stream Netflix, HBO Go and Hulu (along with a variety of other options) straight from my television. The Roku app on my phone is a built in remote control that allows me to access my Roku, choose and play my shows using my phone instead of locating my remove which is probably buried somewhere in my bed. 

Foodspotting is a visual guide to good food in your area. Instead of reviewing restaurants, you can recommend dishes and see what others are eating when you go out. This is great for me because first of all I love trying new restaurants but also I'm that girl who stares at what other tables are ordering and think to myself "that looks good, I want that". This lets me look at what dishes other people ordered at a restaurant straight from my phone!

A girlfriend of mine tuned me into this app when we were in Saint Maarten. In the summer I always have a fan blowing on me when I sleep, I like feeling cool when I sleep but I also like the sound it makes when I sleep. Once it gets cooler out though I will be putting away my fan but still missing that white noise when I sleep. Enter this free White Noise App, you can pick a variety of different sounds to play when you sleep, whether it be waves breaking on the ocean, the sound of rain outside your window, crickets or just the good old fashion sound of a fan. It definitely helps me sleep better at night (especially when Misa barks at the newspaper man at 4am!). 

What are your favorite apps at the moment?
