I'm a firm believer in the fact that there's an app for everything (like Mooch for automating your budget and getting paid to stick to it). And while I'm sure this is true, it can be hard to figure out what apps you really need. That's why I've narrowed down my top picks to help you get through your day more easily and efficiently. These are all great choices whether you're at work or on vacation, so be sure to try them out!

1. TuneIn Radio

TuneIn Radio is a fantastic app for listening to live radio from around the world. You can search for local stations by location, or look up your favorite genre and listen to music, sports or news shows from anywhere in the world.

The best part? It's free! There are also premium features if you want them (like the ability to record podcasts), but they're not necessary if you just want an easy way to get new content on your phone or tablet.

2. Google Keep

Google Keep is a note-keeping app that syncs across all your devices. It's great for lists, reminders, ideas--you name it. You can use Google Keep to record voice notes and even add photos to your notes.

The best part? It's free to use and available on Android or iOS!

3. Wunderlist

Wunderlist is an app that helps you keep track of all the things you need to do. It's especially useful for creating and sharing to-do lists with others, so your family and friends can see what you're working on at any time.

The app allows users to create as many lists as they want, then organize those lists by priority or due date (or both). You can also share these lists with others via email or text message--even if they don't have Wunderlist installed on their phones!

This app is available on Android devices, iPhones/iPads/iPod Touches (iOS 7+), Kindle Fire tablets (Fire OS 4+), Mac computers running OS X 10.10+ and PCs running Windows 7+.

4. AccuWeather

AccuWeather is a great weather app that provides local forecasts, weather alerts and radar maps. It also has a feature that lets you check the weather at specific locations so you can plan your day accordingly. You can get the latest news and information about severe storms in your area as well.

5. Pocket Casts

Pocket Casts is the best way to listen to podcasts. It's easy, it's free, and it looks great.

  • Create a playlist of your favorite shows and listen on-the-go with Pocket Casts' offline mode.
  • Subscribe to any show in seconds or search for something new by name or topic (like "food" or "entertainment"). You'll find all kinds of podcasts here: comedy, sports, news--you name it!

If you're not sure where to start with podcasts but want an easy way out of this situation...pocket casts has gotcha covered! With a simple search function and an intuitive layout that allows users to easily find what they want quickly & efficiently...this app will become one of your favorites in no time flat!


We hope you've found some new apps (like Mooch) to try out that will make your life easier. If you have any other suggestions, we'd love to hear them! Leave us a comment below with what app has helped you out the most and why we should all use it too.
