'Must Have' New Apps

Joseph Coupal - Monday, January 21, 2013

For those of  you who live in our apartments in Blacksburg, VA we thought we would share with you some of the hottest apps. Get fit, get organized and have fun with these must haves for your smart phones:

Obstacles XRT will help you get in shape, anywhere

Start off the year by getting in shape. Obstacles XRT is an exercise app that you can use from the comfort of your home, hotel room, or anywhere you have a clean surface to work out.

The app creates obstacle courses for you to follow along with. The exercise routines are fairly short ranging, from 20-40 minutes

Camera Awesome will helps you to become a better photographer

Camera Awesome is available for the iPhone and iPad. The app helps you to take striking photos quickly.

And besides just helping your photos to stand out, Camera Awesome is packed with features like focusing the lens in one place and setting exposure in another.

We also love the video time travel, which captures video 5 seconds before you hit the button, and the 1-Tap awesomize feature, which works to automatically fix dark spots, blurry photos, and more.

EasilyDo will help you to get organized and stay on track

EasilyDo's goal is to make your life simple. It alerts you with time to go and time to leave texts so you're always on time, merges duplicate contacts, and helps you file emails.

If you connect EasilyDo to your social networks it will even tell you when a friends birthday is and allow you to send a gift all without leaving the app.

See one movie per day with MoviePass

Start 2013 off with a subscription to MoviePass, the app/service that's like Netflix for movie theaters. For about $30 per month you can go see one movie per day at theaters across the country. Available on: iPhone

Use Uber to hail a cab from your smartphone

Uber's mobile app lets you request a private driver from any city the company services. You don't have to worry about cash because Uber will charge your credit card and email you a receipt. Tip is included.

You really can just hop in, get driven to your destination, and hop out

Waze, the social turn-by-turn navigator

Waze is a crowd sourced traffic and turn-by-turn navigation app. Besides helping you get around, Waze knows the fastest way to get where you're going and users actively report accidents, hazards, police, speed cameras, and road alerts.

We love how social the app is and how it's a one stop shop for everything drivers need.
