How to survive an earthquake? Take with you these 4 apps

Those who live in Chile, Mexico or Japan know that an earthquake is likely to happen, but the truth is that there are earthquakes everyday around the world and once per year there is a great earthquake somewhere, according to IRIS geological research. With this frequency it is always useful to be informed about what is happening around us, see how to protect ourselves from an earthquake, how to check if our loved ones are safe during an earthquake and how to help them if necessary.

To do so there are plenty of apps that are great tools to survive an earthquake. We have tested many of them and we have shortlisted the best ones to use when a natural disaster happens.



One of the most reliable sources to know if an earthquake is happening near us, in the case we have not felt anything yet, is the app

EC Report. It is a comprehensible news feed with information of all the earthquakes happening in the world from different reporting agencies and it is supported by the non-profit organization SOS Earthquake.  

Experts can predict times of more common earth movements, however they usually shake suddenly.  One of the advantages of being notified with EC Report is that it informs users about where exactly the event is happening, what magnitude it is and how to be ready for the replicas that follow the earthquake, which can be devastating.

EC Report works as a news feed for earthquakes around the world, including those that occur in remote islands and allows us to geolocate to have information about the area in which we are. It also displays useful news such as escape routes from the city, state of roads, water or electricity supply.

Users can notify when a seismic event is happening using the button ‘I felt it ‘. It is free and available for iOS and Android and has a desktop version.


One of the biggest concerns we have when we are immersed in a natural disaster like an earthquake is to know if our family, close friends and colleagues are safe. For this reason the best solution is to have a real time geolocation application such as Wave Application.

Wave enables users to share their location in real time with their loved ones on a private map, so they can stay connected at any time and know where the others are. In addition to sending the position it is possible to set a meeting point on the map that is visible to all, get the estimated distance to there and the estimated time of arrival (ETA). We can also select any of the users and see how to reach him/her and how long it would take us to get there.

On Wave we can select a session for a limited period on time such as 15 minutes or choose the unlimited waves that runs until we stop them, this last one is the perfect tool to use during an earthquake.


Those of us who live in an area with a long tradition of seismic movements such as Central America or Southeast Asia are more aware than anyone that it is necessary to know how to act after such a scary event that can leave us in shock. That is why SAS Survival Guide app is one of the must-have apps that we should have installed if we live or travel to areas with earthquakes.

This guide presents in a simple and practical way tips to get ready for a natural disaster, giving us the experience that elite training techniques of Britain’s toughest fighting force have. It is a great way to be calm if something happens as we are ready to deal with it.

Once the event occur, the application displays a list of tips that reply our most frequent questions such as where to take shelter? Is it better to be under a lintel of a door or under a table? Do we stay at home or do we go out on the street? All of them are answered by earthquake geologists and emergency experts.

For the more adventurous ones, besides instructing us it has a quiz to see how much knowledge we have learned. It is free and available for Android and iOS.


If something has happened near us, our neighbor would also have felt it and is the closest person we have to help us. Next Door is a social network app designed to be used in small communities and neighborhoods as a way to interact with neighbors, discuss local issues, talk with them, put ads on the virtual bulletin board and be on hand in case someone needs it.

This app was born as a way to help neighbors in their daily routine, however, it soon proved to be a powerful security tool. As the Daily Mail newspaper points out, a family in Houston, Texas, used Next Door app to ask their neighbors for help over the Hurricane Harvey and one of them came to rescue them in a canoe.

The application is now available in the US and it is expanding its service throughout the world. It is free and available for iOS and Android.

Best apps to boost your creativity for free

Being creative is a skill that can be enhanced if we know how to boost it. Although many of us think that it is an activity reserved for artists, creatives or designers, the truth is that being creative is suitable for everyone. It also has great benefits for our brains that can help us work better.

The are plenty of hacks to increase our creativity depending on the activity we are doing.  We might require some apps and tips to help us when we are developing a brainstorm and some different ones when we are getting stuck to reboot our brain. Let’s see at what stage we are and discover the best apps to boost creativity.


To start organizing ideas, to draw new connections and conclusions, the best thing to do is brainstorming. It is a fun way to free the imagination by throwing ideas, joining them to others and seeing the concepts that are formed.

One of the best apps to try is Simple Mind, an intuitive dashboard in which users can spread their ideas, make connections on the tree diagrams, add notes, charts and reorganize them as many times as they want. It has a free version for iOS and Android, which is good enough for organizing a business day or a plan. It also has a professional paid version for companies that comes with more features.

Especially for academic areas, one of the most recommended apps is Popplet, available for free on iOS, that enables professors to organize several diagrams for different classes, add tags and print presentations from them.


Challenging ourselves everyday while optimizing our work is simple. For example, if part of our work is building tables in excel, we should learn how to do dynamic tables, get basic notions of SQL and optimize our work. Or if we have to send a bunch of emails we could improve our performance by creating some templates and making lists on a CRM software. By doing this we forge new work methods with which to move faster and create new connections.

To optimize work users should first organize all their work tasks in a diagram to see which processes they can actually improve. To help with this, the app Udemy is an open course directory that offers online courses about several areas with explanations on how to improve certain tasks. For example, there are courses about how to code, how to define a framework, how to organize time at work or how to meditate, among others. It is available for free for iOS and for Android.

Another app of small courses is Course Guru, which boasts MIT and Harvard and other courses from reputed universities, all for free. In appearance courses are longer than in Udemy, so they are reserved to those users who have more time and desire to focus on a new knowledge. There is a wide variety of topics from music, to meditation, although we mainly find programming and finance. It is free and available for iOS and Android.


Searching for inspiration is an important part of the creative process and seeing other ideas definitely helps us to develop our own ideas. Depending on our job area, we can use generic apps such as Pinterest, a worldwide social network where people post their ideas for decoration, design, meditation, time management and much more. Be careful, it is so addictive. It is free for iOS and Android.

For designers, one of the greatest directories is Dribbble, an app with a desktop version that showcases the work of millions of web and graphic designers around the world. Opening an account requires an invitation from other member so it is reserved for people who are already in the design industry. It is free and available for iOS and Android.

Another interesting directory for designers is Behance. It works like Dribble but it is open to anyone. It is free and available for iOS and Android.


When we get stuck at work or in our daily life we need to make a pause and refresh our mind. Studies show that the best way to work is to do intervals of 90 minutes followed by breaks of 20 minutes.

In these breaks we should do a different activity such as having a coffee with our workmates, checking our social media notifications or doing any other thing that relaxes us. However, there are also specific apps that introduce a bit of peace to our life. One of the best is Stop, Breathe & Think, an award winning app that has more than 3 millions of users. It displays a meditation routine, enables users to register how they feel at any moment and find motivating tips every day. It is free and available for iOS and Android.

In addition to meditating, other researchers agree that listening to music is beneficial to reset our mind. Among the music applications we find fascinating large directories with artists from around the world such as Spotify, SoundCloud or YouTube, all of them free and available for iOS and Android.

However, we also love to create music by ourselves.There  are several fun apps valid for experts and amateurs in music such as Figure, an app in which users can compose a song by choosing chords and musical instruments. It is available and free for iOS.
Another nice app is Magic Piano, that provides a virtual piano and the possibility to create melodies while it teaches us how to to play it. This one is a simple and relaxing app, available for free for ios and android.

Best apps for navigating in the city in 2018

When we are in a traffic jam we often open Google Maps or Sygic or Waze to see the traffic in real time and save a few minutes by taking a new, clearer path. When we travel to a new city we no longer go to the tourist office for a map but open our favorite GPS navigator app and find the ‘duomo’ at first sight. We are expert users. That’s why navigation apps no longer seduce us with words like real time or precision. The future should offer us more. Therefore we have shortlisted what news we can find now in the world of mapping to find friends, avoid traffic and locate anything we want for you.


Some navigation apps strive not only to optimize the routes but to offer a complete experience for the users while they travel or commute such as having the possibility to see and compare petrol prices in the nearest gas stations, to find free parking spaces, to avoid accidents or to see the state of traffic.

All this useful information makes our daily travel more bearable, but if we could also use that time for personal benefits such as ordering food, that would be great. That is what somebody thought at Waze app, which has recently made an agreement with Dunkin Donuts to allow us purchasing coffee and doughnuts directly from Waze while we use it to drive to work. That means when we arrive to the store our order is ready to pick up.

This integration may be a faster way than simply using the breakfast brand’s own app. Presumably, we believe that it will use the ETA (estimated time of arrival) of the route we have chosen and notify the nearest store when we will arrive. Or so they should.

“It could be almost anything that a driver could order ahead and have ready for pick up,” said to Associated Press Jordan Grossman, head of Waze’s partnerships in North America. According to a Dunkin Donuts representative, the agreement made sense because both services are related to the time of the commuting, people drive to work and pick up a coffee and a doughnut on the way to the office.


Walking in the city with a navigation app to meet friends, to find the new sports centre, to go to a grocery shop or just to walk around without getting lost are some of our daily activities. What could be more interesting than adding to them a bit of virtual reality? We are not suggesting anybody to go hunting Pokemons like crazy in the streets, again, but to find useful information on the way.

By viewing the city through the camera of the smartphone, the app Blippar draws lines on the ground with arrows that tell us which street to take to arrive to our destiny. It also shows floating titles over the monuments and shops and places useful information of the city around marked spots. It is a completely new way of exploring a city and having interesting information beautifully placed around. The possibilities are as novel as the technology Blippar uses, which replaces the GPS with a system of Urban Visual Positioning System.

“The accuracy of Urban Visual Positioning can take location-based AR to new levels of engagement, for example virtual departure boards in front of train stations, interactive guides in front of famous landmarks, or even a virtual menu hanging on the wall of a restaurant”, said the company in its website. The apps is still a beta version but it will be released soon


Here is one of the most used navigation apps that was created by Nokia years ago and now has millions of users around the world. Its new alliance with Hyperloop will place its technology to their native app Virgin Hyperloop One. This app will soon include Hyperloop routes in its repertoire of transport options. As we know, Hyperloop is still a transportation prototype that is expected to reach 1200 kilometers or 700 mph per hour, but there is still no train built and running. So, why then is there an app that includes it?

According to the company, Hyperloop wants to start showing to the world what the trip will be like and prepare the navigation technology for it. It will not only be a navigation app but will also serve other services such as booking a trip or even booking a car with the integration of the Lyft transport app.

“Hyperloop is not just about A to B, it’s an end-to-end passenger experience,  that means no waiting at any point along the journey,” said in a statements Matt Jones, Virgin Hyperloop One’s SVP of Software Engineering. He also added: “Here shares our vision for optimizing travel. We will redefine the passenger experience by offering real time, on demand travel connecting hyperloop, other modes, and even indoor walking directions.”

We might wonder if Here will also integrate this experience in their app in the future. Stay tuned for it!


One of the most basic needs we have is to find people. When we try to find a physical store, it does not present so much challenges because it does not change its emplacement. However, people are in constant movement and it is difficult to find them in crowded places such as in city centers, bars, shopping areas or parks. That’s why the Wave Application app it is a great tool to find friends by sharing live locations on a private map in real time.

In Wave, group maps represent a new level of interaction between friends or relatives, because of the possibility of placing a meeting point on the map visible for all group members. In this way, when we are meeting our friends at a restaurant on Fridays we can see who is there if we are late, how long it takes us to arrive there using ETA, who is still at work and whether our friends have decided to go to other place. Wave also has a complete chat and millions of users worldwide.  

“There are no barriers for real time location services anymore, so our biggest challenge is to become an indispensable tool in all the smartphones users. That is why we are continuously developing new features to complete the user experience and applying H2H marketing approaches to better understand what our users need and do our best to give them those solutions” said Manuel de la Esperanza, CEO of Wave Application, in a statement.

What do you think of these options? For more information, stay tuned and discover the new features in the navigation and geolocation systems.

How you will move around in your city in 2018: Smart cities

Millions of people struggle every day to reach their workplaces and study areas in cities in where pollution and long commutes are decreasing the quality of life of the inhabitants.

Smart cities want to solve some of the most common problems that plague the big cities, but what are they? We list here some of the main concerns: pollution, traffic congestion, poor light efficiency and lack of safety for pedestrian roads.

Pollution is a global concern that is damaging the health of the population and speeding up the climate change. According to WHO it is a serious global health risk that is responsible for premature deaths and respiratory problems, especially in the most polluted cities in the world in Nigeria, Pakistan and South Arabia.cityscape-2394753_1920

It is worth to mention the quantity of vehicules circulating in massive cities. Just in Mexico City, the most congested city in the world, there are 5 million of vehicles and there are 30 millions of car trips everyday. In Jakarta 2000 new motorbikes join the circulation every day, according to a recent study by Citymetric.

In Europe Bucharest is the most congested city and a recent study of Tomtom estimated that roughly every driver spends 128 hours of extra time driving per year. Other very congested city is London, that over the past decade has taken a series of measures to reduce traffic. Those go from expanding the public transport network and bike lanes, to taxing the most polluting vehicles and cutting the city center completely to traffic.

Technologies for Smart cities in 2018 and beyond

To address these problems, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are basically collecting data from pedestrian walks and vehicles roads to better understand how people travel around the city and how to manage their flow better. There are complex devices that estimate how many people move around certain areas and at what time, as well as surveillance and sensors that do the same in roads.

There are various ways to determine the flow of people though, for example London Subway uses Wi-Fi pings to learn how passengers travel.

Citizens can also take advantage of real time location systems. For navigation, apps like Waze gather traffic in order to estimate if there is a traffic jam or an obstacle on the road.

People walking or driving to meet their friends in the crowd can also use location services in real time like Wave Application, a free app that facilitates the meetings by enabling two or more people to share their live location on a private map with their contacts.

Once cities have started to comprehend how their citizens move around the city, it is time to implement changes and improve their quality of life. These are the ones that can be visible in the smart cities of 2018:

Find a pak spot

Studies show that finding a park spot raises the congestion. To help people park their cars Palo Alto city developed floor sensors that warned via an app users when a parking spot is available. Now the city is expanding its use over the city.

As cities are introducing timidly electric and gas cars the question on how to distribute the charge stations around the city arises. Would they been in malls, as they plan to be in Madrid or in private parkings as the Hong Kong Baptist University suggests? Well, it really depends on the city as smart technologies are very adaptable. 

Light the city

The light consumption of the cities can be more efficient and better distributed thanks to the ICT information to determine when and where it is better to turn a light on or off. Thus, in areas with more traffic or with greater incidence of crime, the application could alter the brightness of the streetlights. In 2018 several cities around the world will use this system, like Wellington in New Zealand.

Safety of Pedestrians

The safety of pedestrians is another measure that we can begin to notice in Columbus, Ohio, that will implement an efficient crossing system in one of its streets. In Dubai we will see a passenger counter in one of its crossings to reduce the waiting time of the traffic light if there is a crowd. On the other hand, we will see new crosses adapted to people with less vision, thanks to a system of lights and signals in New York.

Reduce waste of water

The parks and forests of the cities are necessary for everyone’s health. Increasing their extension could be feasible if the consumption of irrigation water is reduced. To do this, cities such as Barcelona are implementing humidity sensors in urban parks that will determine how much water is actually needed to irrigate the parks.

As you can notice, smart cities are not only electric cars or Wifi Spots. The possibilities are endless and the New Year is bringing us amazing technologies to improve our daily life. What is your city doing to be smarter in 2018? Drop us a line!

2018 New Year resolutions and how tech, apps and gadgets will help you achieve each of them

It is the time to write the New Year’s resolutions, such as maintaining contact with old friends, having a healthier, more balanced life, studying, saving and so on. To help you finally achieve your goals this year, we have listed the 5 most popular ones in the world, collected from the Internet, google searches and surveys and we show you how to comply with the help of technology. Applications, robots and gadgets are at your service to help you achieve your goals for 2018.

1. Live life to the fullest


Living life to the fullest has been crowned as the most popular New Year resolution to begin 2018, according to a GOB survey. Experts relate this goal to an economic improvement, the crisis not being our main concern, to a greater awareness of the limited time we live and to the desire to organize all aspects of our life in the best possible way to enjoy every moment.

It is recommendable to start by introducing new plans each day, such as going to the theater to see an improvisation, taking dance classes or marking pictures of animals in nature. For those who need inspiration, the All Events in City app (free for iOS and Android) offers an endless number of activities to enroll in, sorted by proximity and thematic. In the same way, traveling is for many a way of living to the fullest, since it combines new food, new cultures and great experiences to remember. Technology in this case could serve with a list of applications for trips that you should not miss and that you can find here listed.

2. Spend more time with our friends and family

Christmas app

We are increasingly aware that social relationships make us happier, more prosperous and more ambitious, so it is not surprising that it is a New Year’s purpose to maintain them and regain contact with special people we do not see often. We all know that sometimes it is difficult to meet, we have endless groups to chat, we decide what to do and finally we have a hard time finding each other in the crowded centre of the city, calling over and waiting for them.

Wave Let’s Meet App (free for iOS and Android) is an application that facilitates the meetings, enabling people to share their location in real time and simultaneously with whoever they want when they are going to meet. Thus, people can set a meeting point on the map, see how to get there and where are the others with incredible accuracy. Once there are no long waits on the street suddenly meeting with friends seems much simpler.

While it is easy to meet for a coffee there are multiple ways to have a great plan with friends, such as spending a day outdoor hiking, biking or simply enjoying the nature. One cool gadget worth to carry on is the DJI Mavic Drone. This drone flies over the group of friends and records astonishing videos at  4K 1080p quality.

3. Get fit and do sports

Doing sports, living a healthy life, eating fruits and vegetables are part of our end-of-year purposes. We barely have time to go to the gym every day, prepare a healthy smoothie for breakfast and make an elaborate dinner. Therefore we like applications such as 30 Days Fitness Challenge (free for iOS and Android), which establishes a light monthly plan with exercises to do at home and without equipment of 30 minutes or less per day to strengthen our health and get those desired six packs.

For the adventure getaways we recommend to get a pair of wireless headphones, resistant to sweat and inclement weather and with enough battery for the entire day. One of the most popular brands of 2017 is Jaybird X3 wireless headphones, designed to cushion outside noise and calibrate the sound adapted to the movement by bike or running. They have bluetooth, equalized and a comfortable cable that connects both headphones behind the head.

4. Eat healthy

For all of us who are not experts in nutrition, counting calories it is already a tough New Year resolution. That’s why we love using applications such as Mealime (free for iOS, Android) that do it for us, at the same time they offer us tasty weekly menus that include the caloric intake and the necessary nutrients for each lifestyle.

If, in addition, a gadget can facilitate the task of cooking healthy soups and juices for us, great. Scott Soupmaker is a high-tech mixer that produces soups, creams, purées and pastes without the need for any knowledge on our part. The robot also comes with a function for the busiest: the one to clean itself. Lastly, for those who have any serious addiction such as smoking, it is a good time to curb the intake or cut it cold turkey with the help of Smoke Free app (free for Android).

5. Avoid procrastination and be organized

Procrastination is one of the great scourges of modern society. It is the ability to delay the activities that we should do and leave them for another time. Being more productive and avoid procrastination has become one of our main concerns, as well figuring out how to be more organized. There are several methods in which technology can help, such as the Todoist app (free for iOS and Android), which is a complete organizer for task and lists by priorities, colors, people in charge and deadlines.

Not only apps do a great job to help us stay focused, there are great gadgets to help such as  Atentif Hour Glass. This app uses the pomodoro technique that suggests to work for 25 minute intervals (called pomodoros) to rest 5 minutes. The clock alerts the owner of every stage while the sand falls. Simple and effective.

Have you felt identified with this list? Tell us in the comments what your New Year’s purpose is and we will help you find the app or gadget that best helps you. Happy New Year!

AI will be your perfect travel buddy soon

Artificial intelligence is introducing itself in our lives, from chatbots like Siri to complex tools that replicate our tastes, robots are learning from us and they might become our best travel mates. Just few days ago, Google revealed in its I / O conference its effort to focus totally on AI, something already anticipated when it introduces the predictive autocomplete in Search.

One of the innovations is the update of Google Assistant, an application that was born as Siri or Alexa, integrating the rest of the Google applications, as well as searches. This has enormous implications, since this application with the soul of a concierge can search our flights, reserve a table in a restaurant, buy our vacation package, as well as look for curiosities, send calendar invitations or make calls.

Facebook, Google, Twitter and other leading mobile technology companies are recommending us where to go and what route to take according to the traffic in the area, adding our events to the calendar, and warning of possible strikes. All of that using AI.

Taking out a bit of stress can make our lives easier and one of the key areas that are redoubling their efforts in the construction of audiobots, chatbox and others bots is the travel industry. We are already enjoying many of the innovations and the best is yet to come. Have a look at how AI is changing the way we travel:

Planning the trip

The options are endless and although the mail softwares are doing the best they can, many times we have to search for the name of the departure station or the exact time. It would be great if an app notifies us directly about our imminent trip.

Buying and booking are also part of a continuous search, sometimes we would like to have a secretary looking for the most convenient options, but the truth is that with a little help from a real travel agent, AI can make great advances.

This is what happens with Mezi, a web application in which the preferences that users write in a chat are understood by a software that automatically sends travel assistants a series of tags that contains all the information and increase the speed of their work.

Taking travel photographs

Google has also presented in its conference Clip, a smart software integrated in a camera that adheres to the mobile phone and records all day what happens. Once the high resolution images have been downloaded, the user must select the most interesting content of the day, achieving something that social networks never have: spontaneity.

Making the selection, however, is an arduous task for the user, so the software expects to learn over time which kind of moments make a good fit for the users.

Most of us would not like the idea of being recorded all the time with Clip. The reaction of the people will determine the success of this technology in particular.

Eating abroad: goodbye diets

When we go on a trip, we usually eat the first thing we want, taste the local delicacies and then feel guilty or even bad for the extra caloric intake. The last thing we want on vacation is to worry about dieting.  However, this Fitgenie nutrition app goes one step beyond the applications in which we introduce everything we eat and learn from our tastes.

It needs a bit of support on our part. We need to introduce in the app what we eat, how many calories it has and our diet, so that the app will improve their menus and diets to our particular taste with a bit of time.

Meeting friends

Moving in a new city, meeting friends, going to different places are a very important part of the trip. Normally, when we move around the city it is difficult for us to call or search among the messages where to find others, it is easier to share the location on a map.

Location sharing apps are now a reality. Millions of users use Wave Application to meet their friends in the city, see where they have gone to,  go to have dinner or find themselves on a trip, among other situations. In this case, applications such as Wave that use private geolocation, have places very welled thanks to a need of users: keep their privacy.

In the field of artificial intelligence, the possibilities of optimizing this service are endless. For example, a location based service with AI could suggest us to share the location with somebody if we are going to meet this person. Meeting friends or family is a daily activity and it is not surprising that artificial intelligence improves this part of our life in the near future.

Finding the ideal travel companions

In a connected world, traveling with someone who shares our same tastes is very comfortable and that is why there are so many web directories, forums and social travel applications. However, one step further would be to apply the matching engineering used by some dating apps to this topic and find the ideal travel companions.

For the moment, the closest thing to that is Grip, an application of business events that seeks to suggest and recommend in the events the interaction of some workers with others, since the most valuable connections can accelerate business agreements.

Currently, artificial intelligence is already learning from our transfers to inform us of the traffic in the area without our request, strikes, or the addresses of our friends.

As we see, artificial intelligence is now an assistant that is getting more and more more proactive. Maybe one day AI will choose our holidays and take away the stress of planning them. If it works well.

Time is money! These apps will give you some

We are more connected than ever to the online world and for most of us the smartphone is the perfect match for work, leisure and holidays. However, if we dress with data this time invested, we see that we spend 4 to 5 hours a day with our smartphones, according to two independent surveys of ComsCore and Flurry*, published last March.

Most of that time is related to social apps such as Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. We use GPS navigators, make calls, organize payments, play games or check the weather forecast. All of that occupy in total a sixth part of our day!

With such a daily activity it is difficult to disconnect, so we have shortlisted 6 super applications to curb your daily routine online and have some spare time.

Share your location with your friends and stop calling over

How many times a week do we meet up for a coffee, a movie or to do some sports? All of these plans usually require a previous bunch of calls and endless messages to organize it. With Wave Application, simply share your live location temporally with one or more people to see their whereabouts, set a meeting point that suits everyone and find them easily, even in crowded places. It is free and available for iOS and Android.

Make a payment as easy as sending a message

Paying the rent of the flat, solving that debt or organising the shared costs of a trip with friends are those tedious transfers that we do continuously logging into our bank accounts and asking for the payment details. Opt this time for Venmo or even Facebook, both apps make safe payments as simple as selecting a contact on the app, writing the amount of money and clicking Pay. Both are free for Android and iOS.

Get fit, eat well and sleep tight all with only one app!

The smartwatch that counts steps is not enough to chart your daily routine of exercise, food and hours of sleep. Instead of constantly looking at several apps, download Fitbit, the ultimate app to drive your healthy vein into your daily life connected to your wristband device. It has workouts, healthy tips, recipes, personalised notifications and it synchronises with a wristband or smartwatch.

Manage all the pictures automatically

A good part of the memories of the week would come from on our smartphone devices so Google Photos app is one of the best choices to organize them, upload them automatically to a cloud storage, share them with friends or even use their smart album feature to organize them by location or date.

Wait for the offers to reach you instead of searching for them

Traveling involves a lot of time searching for cheap flights and accommodations. Instead of spending so many hours on it, set alerts on Trip Advisor app so the app will automatically do the searching, check out the Best Value feature that shortlists the best choices based on previous searches and remember all the nice places visited on a personal timeline.  

Now you are all set! Try these apps and save time to do what you like the most!
