I probably use Venmo at least once a week. It’s a great app where you can pay and request payment quickly and easily from friends and family.

Headspace is another app I recently discovered, and am glad I did. This app teaches you how to meditate to help reduce stress – something many of us experience on the daily.

I’ll be honest this app saved my life in my math courses. Unlike other apps that simply show you the answer to a problem, Wolfram|Alpha shows you step by step how to solve the problem. While this app isn’t free, it’s definitely worth it.
