With the year almost out of the way (and finals approaching), this month’s trending apps in the App Store and on Google Play will help to organize yourself for a new clean preface on social media and on your daily routines for the following year:
Used for group messaging and great for class team/group assignments, the app is known for its unique format for clear communication throughout every level of document organization. Slack instantly syncs across all devices and is compatible with dozens of other apps and services (like Dropbox) to make your job simpler and easier.
- Uber Eats
With Uber Eats, ordering food is simple — especially if you’ve used Uber before. Browse the menu of available restaurants to order from and pay straight through the app by linking your credit or debit card. You’ll then be given an estimated delivery time and you can track the location of your order in real time.
- Nintendo Switch Online
While it may not be the perfect solution — forcing you to use your phone in addition to your Switch console for voice chat — Nintendo’s just-released Online app offers the most convenient way to play Splatoon 2 with friends, and thus earns a spot on this list. Currently, Splatoon 2 is the only game the app supports, though this is sure to change over the coming months. Next year, Nintendo will begin charging a $20 yearly fee to use the Switch’s online features — but until then, the app remains free.
Calm is a meditation app that offers guided sessions for beginners, along with programs for those on intermediate and advanced levels. You can choose from different breathing exercises, adult bedtime stories, or soothing nature sounds to use during yoga.
Spotify is changing the game for the entire music industry. It’s free on PCs and tablets, but $10 a month if you want to fully use it on iPhone. It’s worth it. You can listen to full albums and create playlists.
As of this month, the following apps are not only popular within their respective app categories, they’ve also reached a new high in downloads and rankings online. Keep in mind that starting towards the end of this year, many apps within the gaming and food genres will be starting to add new deals following New Year’s Day on in-app purchases.
