Sometimes people focus their time on the mainstream apps like Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, etc and don’t realize how many useful apps there are on the app store. Some of these can help our daily lives by relieving stress and making everything easier in different aspects of our life.

My Fitness Pal

My Fitness Pal is an app to track diets and determine your calorie intake, which helps people balance meals to help get in shape and also has meal ideas and ways to exercise to achieve your goals faster.

Cacciatore says, “My favorite part of the app is reading the different meals I can be making for myself instead of eating out.”

The app knows how fast users are traveling on the road and redirects around any kind of traffic that  might be ahead. It also alerts any construction, accidents, cameras, and even if there are police officers on the road.

Senior Marykate Urbanski says, “Waze has helped me get to events on time and redirects me around any kind of traffic.”

Uber/ Uber Eats

Uber is an app which is very convenient when you need a ride and can provide that in minutes. Uber Eats is also convenient when you don’t feel like driving to pick up food, but would rather have it delivered right to your front door. Depending on where you live, the restaurants could be very limited but also could have a lot of options.
