Our Favorite Apps Right Now


We all have a phone full of apps – some of which we proudly display on the front of our home screen and others we tuck away in a folder on the last page. You love Kimoji, but you don’t necessarily want the whole world to know you do.

Trust us; we’re obsessed too.

But instead of putting ourselves on blast, we put together a list of our favorite apps at the moment that you’ll never have to hide.


Mint is the perfect app for all those honeys making (and spending) money. Once connected to your bank account, the app records and categorizes all your financial transactions. Mint shows all of your purchases and allows you to create budgets for various things, like dining out, shopping, gas, public transportation, and more. After each month it shows you how much of each budget you’ve used.

Monthly Gift

There’s an app for pretty much everything. If you were wondering, yes, there’s an app for that. And by that, we mean that time of the month. Monthly Gift is here to help women stay on top of their health while tracking their menstrual cycles and providing daily birth control alarms, fertility updates, and reminders of their annual OBGYN appointments. Not only is Monthly Gift an app, it’s also a subscription box that comes with tampons, pads, liners, and CHOCOLATE. The box is delivered monthly to you just in time for that time.

LiveHealth Online

Moms have the busiest lives with work and household duties, so going to the doctor is just another unnecessary task added to their to-do lists. LiveHealth Online is a service that allows you to see a doctor in real time via live video from your computer or mobile device 24/7, 365 days a year (including holidays). Unlike packed doctors’ offices, on LiveHealth, there is no need for an appointment, and there is little to no wait time.

A typical LiveHealth Online visit is $49; however, it may be covered by just a co-pay, depending on your health plan. Dr. Mia Finkelston, MD, a family care physician who treats patients over the platform, told New You, “Doctors like me can virtually help patients with a variety of different health issues. Some of those issues include colds, flu, allergies, sinus infections, bronchitis, pink eye and other eye infections, rashes, urinary tract infections, and more.”

It is important to remember that virtual doctor’s visits should not be used for serious medical emergencies. Patients whose ailments, injuries, or sicknesses fall into this category should call 911 immediately.

Nike Training Club

We can all agree that despite our fit desires, it can be really difficult to actually hit the gym or come up with exercises to perform at home. Whether your bed looks extremely comfortable at the moment you were planning to head to the gym or you can’t exactly remember how to do that funky plyometric scissor jump. Nike Training Club is a brilliant application that will eliminate those problems. There is an extreme amount of content available for beginners to experts, and the app is completely free. With four different workout plan options – to get lean, get toned, or get focused – each section features long lists of various workouts for either 15, 30, or 45 minutes.


Summer aka jet-set season is around the corner. Soon enough, we’ll be switching to airplane mode and hopefully landing in one of the world’s coolest Air BnBs. Before packing your bags, download this essential mobile app to do some of the heavy lifting when it comes to organizing a trip and finding hidden airport gems. Skyscanner is a free global search application that enables people to find comparisons for flights, hotels, and car hire saving you time and money.
