Everybody's got a few apps that they rely on. Sometimes they're scheduling apps, note-taking apps, or photography apps - whatever it is, it's pretty amazing to think about how quickly technology is evolving. In my opinion, it's exciting so many entrepreneurs out there coming up with ideas to help make lives easier - that's what real capitalism is all about.
Here's a few apps I just got recently, I'm really excited to start using them more often.
Stop uploading your photos to Instagram and start uploading them to Foap, seriously. If you've got an artistic eye and enjoy taking photos as a hobby, this is a great app for you. It allows you to use that creativity and sell your photos directly on the app. No need to buy a ton of gear, if you can create quality photos, you can sell on Foap.
I'm not sure if everyone is as paranoid about putting chemicals into my body as I am, but if you're like me you'll love this app. It allows you to scan any beauty or skincare product and it rates it on a scale from 0 - 10. If the product rates between 7-10 it's ranked "Dirty". ("Product's ingredients have potential serious negative long term health effects.") Ranked 3 - 6 it's "Half N' Half". ("Product's ingredients have potential moderate negative long term health benefits.") And finally, ranked 0 - 2 "Neutral". ("Product does not contain any ingredients which have a documented potential negative health impact.") How cool is that?
The hardest part about learning to play with sheet music, in my opinion, is learning to read the rhythm. This app is all about rhythm practice, but, it makes you hear and read it first. Each day for 15 minutes it trains your ears to hear rhythm when you read it on sheet music. All you have to do is tap on the screen, and it pushes your skills a little farther every day.
I've been needing apps like these for such a long time but I guess you could say I just didn't know it. Growing up, I loved the movie Robots. When I started studying economics and re-watched the film, I was able to catch the significance behind it.
"See a need, fill a need."
The fact that anyone can say they "rely" on apps is pretty amazing if you think about it.
