Google Search is an awesome App that is free and beyond useful.

I Google everything. And now, Google does darn near everything for you!

8. The Weather Channel
Do I even need to explain this? Living in Louisiana is a bit of a guessing game. Even when we check the weather, it’s hard to be sure that you’re preparing yourself correctly. It can literally be 80 degrees here one day, and 34 the next. So, what does this mean? This means that any smart person in Louisiana who wants to successfully and safely fulfill their day, should check the weather-often. The Weather Channel App is reliable and provides you with push alerts when there is severe weather approaching. You get the latest tropical storm and hurricane updates-which is also a must here. You can also access videos and save your favorite travel route and commutes to see how and if the weather will impact them!
Instagram is one of those Apps that isn’t started based around a website. And, while I am aware that they are still working on the website version..it’s nowhere near the same! Instagram is a free app that allows you to take and share photos and videos with friends, family, & whoever follows your feed! With Instagram you can take & share videos up to 15 seconds long, access custom designed filters, blurr effects, unlimited upload, quick and easy sharing with other social networks, and interaction with others using instagram and so, so much more!

Let’s admit it. Adult life can get a little boring. And, despite the fact that I am pretty sure this App was made for another reason, it entertains the heck out of me! Snap a photo, draw something funny on it, and send it to your friends! You also get a ‘snap story’ where you can save snaps you want everyone to see. These snaps stick around in your ‘story’ for 24 hours before the disappear! Watch what you snap though!
