Why Sorority Girls Love Periscope

So, we just caught wind of Periscope and can't believe we hadn't heard of it before. For those of you who are not familiar, Periscope is an app that allows you to actually hear the views and thoughts of your favorite profiles live. So think video like YouTube, but LIVE! It's the perfect avenue for us sorority girls and other women and men for that matter to speak our minds freely and actually get live feedback. If you like what someone is speaking about, you can give them a heart. The more hearts you get, the higher they flutter on the screen...we love! Periscope is literally the newest app craze and if you want to be Periscope famous then you should probably jump on the bandwagon. Lucky for you it's available on both iTunes Apple Store and through Google Play for you Android users!

The 'Way of Life' App

We are all about breaking habits and setting goals! With school fast approaching for many of you or the dreaded realization that NYE is around the corner and you haven't made due with your resolutions, we have found an app that we think would be beneficial for you. This amazing app is called the 'Way of Life' app and its goal is to help break habits and commit to goals by literally tracking your progress. You can view your tracked goals in a weekly and monthly manner with the pro version. On your phone you can set reminders and receive notifications daily associated with your goals. It is a great app if you have an extra couple of dollars to aid in keeping you on track for your personal and professional goals. If you want to attend more sisterhoods with your sorority sisters, exercise more, read more insightful books and the list goes on, we recommend this app to keep yourself more accountable!

The Nextdoor App

Have you ever heard a really loud noise outside of your apartment, dorm or house and wondered what it was? Have you ever seen a suspicious individual in your neighborhood and really wanted to call the cops? We got wind of a super cool app to help you build a community with the people around you to temperature check your area and it's called The NextDoor App! This app is a free and private social media platform for you and your neighborhoods to stay in the know of neighborhood activity. Co Founder Karen recently found the app to be useful when she heard a car alarm go off in her neighborhood at an odd hour. Based on the app, she was able to read that a couple of blocks away there had been some car break ins. To be proactive, one of her neighbors called the police to report the suspicious car alarm going off. Though it ended up being a faulty car alarm, it made both her and her neighbor feel protected and knowledgeable about their surroundings.

Online Dating: How Is It?

Well, there is no denying it. Online dating has been taking over as the source of several relationships. We have heard about them all whether it's "swiping to the left or right" with the ever so popular Tinder to Coffee Meets Bagel where you can focus on one profile of someone at a time. Then, of course there are the originals like and Black People Meet and eHarmony where you set up a profile and literally hand pick the types of profiles you want matched with you. Recently we even heard about an app for group dating called "Grouper"--gotta love it! Below are a list of dating apps we have heard through the grapevine. Check them out and weigh in on your experience with any and all of the dating apps by leaving your comment below!

8 Best Apps To Make Life Easier

The Check App proactively stays on top of your bills and monitors your bank accounts and credit cards, all in one place. When bills are due or funds are low, this app will let you know. One of our favorite things about this app is that you can get reminders of when bills are due and either pay them on the spot, or schedule a payment later. Best of all, this app is free!Evernote is a free app that helps you save notes across all of the devices you use. This app helps you stay organized, save your ideas and improve productivity. Evernote lets you take notes, capture photos, create to-do lists, record voice reminders--and makes these notes completely searchable, whether you are at home, at work, or on the go. Some of the key features include the ability to sync all of your notes across all your computers and devices, search for text inside images, share notes with friends and colleagues via social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, and organize notes by notebooks and tags to name a few.
Food on the Table is a meal planning and grocery list app. With thousands of recipes and over 16,000 grocery stores connected to this app, you know what your next meal is and what ingredients are needed at the store to make it. There are endless ways you can take advantage of this useful app such as making a weekly menu for long days at school or work with the meal planner, to shopping smarter using their grocery shopping list template, and creating budget friendly meals for our college conscience friends. Get in shape with a healthy grocery list while staying within budget by using this app!
When you can turn your phone into a basic tool, how can you complain? We absolutely love the Flashlight app because it comes in handy during those dark moments where we need some light and a real flashlight is not in arm's reach. The best thing about this specific flashlight app is that it comes with a compass! 
 Who wants to wait till they get to a computer before they can check the status of their bank account {not us!}? Whether with Chase or another bank, most banks allow you to do your banking from your mobile device where you can manage your account, make deposits, find ATMs and much more. Our favorite feature on the Chase Mobile Banking app is the ability to cash a check right at the palm of your hand. Simply take a picture of the front and back of your check and MAGIC, your money is deposited into your bank account and you didn't need to step into the bank. Of course, this app is free too!  
Lose It! is an awesome app because it helps you set a daily calorie budget. In determining this budget you can track your food and exercise, and stay motivated to make smarter choices and achieve your weight loss/fitness goal.  It is pretty simple to use which makes staying on track easier especially for those of you busy at school or at work.

 Need a quiet place to study and use the internet? Throw your WiFi cards away! With the WiFi Finder app, you can locate the nearest FREE WiFi spots. Not only does it tell you where it is, but it also shows you through providing a detailed address and GPS location on the map. Lifesaver!
