Must Have Apps for the Holiday Season
Even though the Holidays are upon us, that doesn’t mean that we as tech savvy humans will be spending less time on our smart phones. Whether you’re looking for new recipes or trying to avoid talking to your nosy cousin, you will need some helpful, attention getting apps on your phone. Here are my favorites!
If you don’t have Pinterest by now, where have you been for the last five years? 😀 Pinterest is a hub where anyone can create and share ideas. From unique recipes, to how-tos on how to roast a turkey, to step by step guides on making slime for kids, Pinterest is an app so many of us can get lost in. It’s also filled with gift ideas, so it’s one to keep on your phone year round!
If you’ve stayed too long at your host’s house because you’re having so much fun, or you’ve decided that you just can’t bear to hear any more of your uncle’s grossly over exaggerated stories, Hotel Tonight is the app you need. This app is designed specifically for finding you a hotel room on short notice. It aggregates nearby hotels at the best prices, and has a simple to use interface. I have used this app myself and I had no issues at all upon checking in to the hotel. You can look at amenities and hotel ratings before you book, and there are often coupon codes available.
Speaking of coupon codes; you know you need to shop this next few weeks, so why not make the most of your money? Retail Me Not is amazing for finding coupons and deals for your favorite stores and restaurants. You can find coupon codes to use online, or those for in store use. Users can also vote on whether or not a certain coupon code worked for them, so you won’t have to waste your time trying codes and seeing if one works. Black Friday sales can be found here too.
I haven’t yet met a person young or old who wasn’t fascinated with this app! Think of a character from anything–movie, book, television show. Akinator the Genie will ask you questions until he figures out who or what you are thinking about. This app is playable by even younger children, because most can answer yes or no questions about their favorite characters. Once you try it, you will try more and more because you realllly want to stump him 🙂
I hope this guide will help you get through the season with minimal stress and maximum enjoyment! Let me know some of your must have apps in the comments.
