5 Free Mobile Applications To Make Your Life 100x Better

Wednesday, July 20, 2016


Thank goodness for all the FREE stuff on the Internet! As a digital native, I make sure that I maximize my Internet privileges to make my busy lifestyle more bearable. So today, I would like to share some of the mobile applications that made my life 10000 times better! I hope that you find them helpful too!


1. StumbleUpon
StumbleUpon allows you  to conveniently browse random articles on the Internet without manually searching for each one. With just a simple tap, the app would automatically generate different Internet sites that fall under your chosen category. So basically, you just hop from one site to another until you find the article that you actually like.
Even if you don’t have a specific article in mind, StumbleUpon makes sure that you can find something interesting to bookmark. I like that the categories are very broad and it’s up to you to find your own niche. It’s a great way to discover new content without the hassle of having to make everything specific.
This is perfect for you if: you want to be knowledgeable on different topics. 
Bonus tip: Don’t forget to put your bookmarks in various categories. For instance, my StumbleUpon account has the following categories for easy navigation: Beauty, Skincare, Intellectual Growth, Interesting Stuff (online games, trivia, fun facts, etc.), Fitness, Future References (tips and lifehacks!)


2. Spendee
I had a recent realization that my college life is going to end very very soon. The thought of finally stepping out into the real world scares me a bit so I made a personal promise that I would be more financially responsible now that I’m 20. I decided to start saving up for my emergency fund so that I can have some money on my bank account before I officially graduate next year.
I use Spendee to track my daily expenses. It’s fairly easy to use since you just have input your expenses and the app does the rest of the work. I believe that if we know exactly where our money goes, it would be easier for us to adjust our spending habits.
This is perfect for you if: you want to budget your salary or allowance.
Bonus tip: Input your expenses immediately. Don’t put it off for too long because you might forget some minor (but very significant!) expenses.


3. Rewire
Rewire is a habit tracker. Every time you perform a task, a green chain appears to indicate your success. The catch, of course, is that you have to do the activity for X consecutive days in order for the chain to continue. 
This is perfect for you if: you want to develop a habit and commit to it. 
Bonus tip: Use the Rewards option so that every time you complete a task for X days in a row (it’s your call!), you’re free to have a guilt-free cheat day. 



4. Shopee 
I just downloaded this mobile app a few days ago but I already know that it’s the perfect shopping companion. Whether you’re a seller or a buyer, Shopee surely makes everything easier. I don’t know how Shopee does it but man, they have lots of crazy good deals! You actually get a PHP 100 discount for just signing up. That’s pretty cool, right? 
This is perfect for you if: you want to start a small business OR you’re just a big fan of online shopping. 
Bonus tip: Check their Instagram every now and then to score limited promo codes and coupons. 



5. Bloglovin’ 
I’m a Bloglovin’ newbie but I love the fact that I can stalk my favorite blogs in an instant! I also discovered that a significant percentage of my blog traffic actually comes from my Bloglovin’ account so yay! I actually went on a following spree last week so I’m now following 200+ accounts. No regrets. 
This is perfect for you if: you want to stalk your favorite blogs in a single platform. 
Bonus tip: Put a Bloglovin’ badge on your website to make your account more visible. 



If you want, you can follow me on Bloglovin’ by clicking this link:

(See? I followed my own advice!!!)
What are your favorite mobile applications? I would love to read your list too! 
P.S. You can now pin this article! I'm giving Pinterest another try so if you like my post, feel free to pin it on your boards. Thank you for visiting my blog!

  3. I used to be obsessed with StumbleUpon on my computer a few years back! I discovered so many amazing sites and information from it. All of these sounds like amazing applications. I don't really like using my phone other than social media and the usual communication things though because the less I play with it, the less I end up buying anything online >_<

  10. I really spend a *lot* of time in play store finding apps that can help me become productive and actually improve my lifestyle lol I will definitely download Spendee and Rewire! Hahaha thanks for the tips! I am currently loving "Since" app, you can input different infos like "Since I drank softdrinks" (if you're trying to stop drinking haha) and it will count the days since you last did it! There's no limitation on what you want to count! :)
