So you just graduated from college…now what? Before the real world hits you too hard, we came up with 5 free mobile apps to help you get adjusted to your life outside of school. These apps will help you manage the 5 most important aspects of your life: productivity, finance, health, social and alas, your love life. Enjoy your first years out of school stress-free with help of technology.
Productivity – CloudOn
As a recent college grad breaking into the industry, first impressions are important. CloudOn centralizes all of your working files in one workplace so you can work outside the 9-5 routine, and impress your boss with your work ethic! Now, you can easily view, edit, and share your files on Microsoft Office through your favorite cloud storage services Dropbox, Box, and Google Drive.
Finances – Manilla
Rent, food, credit card bills, travel expenses, student loans, car loans — you’ve seen it all. If you’re struggling with paying on time, budgeting your money, or even remembering login information, our friends over at Manilla have a solution for you. Their free app securely integrates all your accounts so you can easily manage your bills and budget for them — like a real adult!
Social – BlockAvenue
BlockAvenue lets you see what is happening up your block and around your ‘hood. Currently a website-based service, BlockAvenue gives you the low down on the hottest restaurants and bars, with reviews from city locals and a grade from A to F from BlockAvenue’s secret algorithms. BlockAvenue is also a great resource for everything else social-related, such as locating local ATMs, gyms, and grocery stores to recent crimes in the area.
Health – Fitocracy
If you still got the dreaded Freshman 15 from college, don’t sweat it. With Fitocracy, you have the support of an entire social network of health gurus, other aspiring athletes, and your own friends to help you get addicted to being fit. Fitocracy sends you daily workouts in the form of a challenge so you can earn points once completed and beat your friends in the quest to be the fittest of them all. Even Arnold Schwarzenegger approves!
Love – Coffee Meets Bagel
Moving to a new city not only means a new job and new friends, but also a potential new beau. Our team here at Coffee Meets Bagel has created a free dating service that uses your social network to introduce to you one “bagel”, or match, everyday at noon, so dating is fun and easy — the way it’s supposed to be. Register now on our website or follow us on @CoffeeMBagel to stay tuned for our official app launch later in the summer!
