Favorite Mobile Apps as of 2013?
I know at one point there was a old App thread buried in this forum from quite a while back (+4 years?) but I cant seem to find it. So being things generally change and become obsolete so quickly these days, I figured a new app thread would be in order. I'm a Android ICS user on both my phone and Tabs.
Now that we're around 5 years into the Smartphone Revolution (Palm Treo's and Pre's don't really count, seriously), what are your most used apps at this point? Mine are listed below in the frequency I use them and a brief "why". 1 being the most:
1) Sirius/XM Channel 207, NHL Network- I listen to it from 7am est all the way until they start the War Room replay at 2pm est. Once they do that, I move to:
2) IHEARTRADIO- Island 98.5 (Hawaiian/Reggae/Jawaiian) until I leave work. The Morning Crew there is thee Funniest group of 'clean humor' dudes on the radio. If you are are easily offended by people making fun of EVERYONE's ethnicity (Hawaiian thing) and cant understand Pigeon English, don't bother.
3) Weather Bug Elite- Not very accurate with the current temps and stuff but has one of the best day-to-day radar interfaces out there. If I'm out in the ocean on the boat though, I switch to NavPro.
4)Starbucks- I have a Starbucks 100 yards from my office and visit it 2 times a day so this app is a no-brainer. You can "load" and "reload" the app with $$. It keeps track of your "stars" which are reward points that accrue and add up to free coffee drinks. I'm a Gold Member now about 20 times over and get at least 1 voucher a month for a free Java of my choice.
5)Key Ring- Do yourself a favor and take all those stupid ass Reward Cards that physically destroy your wallet and look dumb on your key chain and scan them into this app!!! Once you're in the system, you get daily coupons and specials that you wont normally see. Just yesterday, I got a alert from a local Grocery store named "Farmers Market" saying they were having a 3 hour sale starting at 12 noon on Snow Crab legs. So after work, I swung by there, flashed the coupon on my phone and bought 15 pounds of AA grade (Top Grade) for $4.99 a POUND!. That is $4.00 off the regular and posted cost. *BOMB*. Get this app if you do any kind of shopping...food, clothes, anything. Its Free.
I'll post more later...
