5 lifestyle apps you need.

5 lifestyle apps you need.

I recently came across an app that helps you split a bill amongst a group and it got me agreeing that there is an apps for almost everything these days. Can you quickly tell how many are on your phone without counting? Mobile apps have become really useful to a point one can feel inadequate without them. I have so many too on my phone but here are some I use the most or find more useful after the everyday social apps:


1. Period Tracker: PMS & Ovulation calendar.

For the ladies. I have used this app for the past 10 months. It gives you menstruation cycle detail alerts and notifications. You get notified when your periods are near by the exact number of days, when ovulation starts, when periods is delayed, if you have a high, medium or low chance of pregnancy and more. All you have to do is enter the details when your periods begins, ends, how you are feeling etc. If you can’t keep track of your cycle this is a very simple way to do it and know what exactly is going on.



2. Money ++

Enter your daily expenses, income, accounts and it calculates everything for you. You have the option to categorize your expenses and the statistics shows where you spend your money the most, your general expenses, income, and your balance.

If you want to be more money conscious then this app is for you.

PS: Also here is my go to blog on personal finances. Simply written and mostly relatable Refined Currency – The new age of Women & Money.

3. Kindle

I used to prefer reading hard copy books, I still do but based on how hard it is to get the latest books in stores in Dar es salaam Kindle has been my go to.  Its fast, reliable and the scrolling can lead you to finishing a book in one night.  The fact that I have my kindle library on my phone and can pick whichever book I want to read whenever and wherever is a plus.
