According to a ton of studies, women spend around 8-10 hours on their phone a day. With that much time spent, why not spend it on something productive? Here are a few apps that could benefit women whether it be through organization, safety, or just plain fun.
- Period Tracker
There are thousands of apps to track your period but Period Tracker by GP International LCC is my personal favorite. It is so simple to use. You have a calendar and the app allows you to enter the dates you start and end your period. It shows you your light and heavy days so you know how many pads or tampons to keep in your purse that day. It also shows when you are ovulating and fertile – whether you’re trying to get pregnant or avoid it completely.
- 10 Daily Yoga Poses
What better way to start off your day than with yoga? The app 10 Daily Yoga Poses by Play Simple gives you 10 yoga poses that you hold for 30 seconds each. It starts off with easier poses and gets a little more difficult the more you use the app. It is definitely the best way to get the sleep out of your eyes and your blood pumping. And it only takes 5 minutes!
There are quite a few safety apps out there for women but the one that makes me feel the safest is SafeTrek by SafeTrek, Inc. The app is a lot more user friendly than most safety apps. After you enter your name and number, the app asks you to put in a 4 digit pin code. Then it displays a button that you hold when you’re in an area you don’t feel totally safe in. If you remove your finger from the button, the app asks you to put in your 4 digit code. If the code isn’t entered within 10 seconds, the app alerts the authorities of your location and help will be on the way.
- Our Groceries Shopping List
Whether you’re shopping for yourself, your roommates, or your family, Our Groceries Shopping List buy HeadCode is a lifesaver. You just enter everything you need to buy at the store and the app breaks it up for you into categories such as produce, bakery, or dairy. That way you are able to get everything you need from one section of the store without forgetting something and have to go back. This app is beyond necessary for keeping you organized in your busy life.
After a list of totally useful apps, you may ask, “What the heck is Snapchat doing on this list?” Well, I asked around 50 girls what the app they use the most is and Snapchat was the number one answer. What is the huge appeal of Snapchat, though? Well, instead of posting on Facebook or Instagram, you can share a picture of yourself or something you’re doing without the expectation of someone commenting or liking it. Snapchat is fun and more flexible than other social media and according to most girls, absolutely necessary to have on their phone.
So what are you waiting for? I know you’re reading this on your phone! Go download these apps and make those 10 hours on your phone more fun and productive.
