6 Apps That You Need To Check Out


My new favorite app is Moment. With this app, you are able to track the exact amount of time you spend on your phone daily. I recently read “#Donotdisturb” and it really got me thinking about how much time I spend looking at my iphone. Let’s just say too much! Ever since I downloaded the app, I have been spending less and less time on my phone. I’ll talk about this more in a later post, but I highly recommend downloading this app in the meantime.


2. Shine

Do you need a little positivity in your life? Shine is the ultimate cheerleader and advocate of self care. Every morning Shine will send you an encouraging message to start your day on the right foot. Self care is something I value greatly, so this app is a must for me.


3. Libby

This app is great if you love books like me. Libby lets you check out up to 10 audiobooks at once… for free! The only thing you will need is your local library card. Once you enter your information, you are able to check out audiobooks from the library(without the hassle).


4. Hibooks

Apparently my friends are aware of my book addiction because I had this app sent to me by numerous people last week. It is like Netflix for audiobooks! Yes, really. This app is similar to Libby, with a couple more conveniences:

  • You never have to wait for a book to become available. All books are at your disposal, all of the time.
  • This app has even more book titles than Libby. 50,000!

The only catch is that you have to pay $9.99 a month. For me, this is absolutely worth it. I was paying $25 a month to get 2 book titles from Audible. I am in heaven now.


5. Goodreads

This is my last book app, I promise. Goodreads has completely changed my life over the last couple of years. This app lets you track all of the books you are reading and add new ones to your wish list. Feel free to add me on Goodreads, and we can check out what each other is reading. If you want to know more about how I have read 139 books this year, you can check my post about my tips and tricks here.


6. Kahoot

My sisters got me hooked on this game when I visited Texas. This is a trivia/ question game where you get to compete against other players, and it covers all different topics. Apparently teachers use this quite a bit to test students on school subjects. While we did find it fun to do those subjects, we also enjoyed playing trivia about memes, books, riddles, and Disney.

    1. Of course! I am glad you liked it:) Let me know which ones you try!

  9. This was such a helpful list. I just downloaded Libby and I’m excited about all the books I’ll now have access to. I need to figure out if I’m limited to only reading or listening on my phone. The description on the Appstore didn’t mention that. Nevertheless, I’m excited about this one in particular. Thank you for the recommendation.
