(I use these apps every day, more than once per day)
YNAB, this is a budgeting software, and the software MUST be on your computer before you can use it on your phone. See my review HERE
Audible, audible.com is basically an audio book membership. The first month is free. I have used it for about 5 years now. My 6 children are all signed in to my account and we can listen to the same books. You can even return a book if you find it's not what you wanted. (I have done this a few times!)
Bible (YouVersion) my username is Rebeccahuff517 if you would like to see which Bible plans I am currently reading & what verses I highlight
Most Useful Apps
(use almost every day)
Waze, if you're in Knoxville, beep beep me!
HomeRoutine this app keeps me on top of my daily routines and it's fun to “check off” things on a to-do list!
WeatherBug, great for sunrise and sunset times, hourly & 10 day forecast, etc. I keep my daughter's city favorited so I can see if it will be a beach day for her or a stay inside day! Plus the alerts it sends for storms, lightning, etc. are useful.
RoadReady this app offers parents and teens an easy, educational and convenient way to log the state required supervised driving time with the click of a button & I like it because it is a Ford app, even though I drive a Dodge, my husband works for Ford 🙂
BrightNest if you own a home, trust me, you need this app. From their website:
