5 Apps I'm Loving

I got an iPhone 6 in July, thank heavens, and because I had absolutely no space left, I got the 64 gig. I know that's a bit much, but because they don't sell the 16 gig anymore it was my only option. I really hope I never fill it up enough to need anymore space than that (#hoarder), but for now I'm enjoying having so much extra room for a few not-totally-necessary-but-I-want-them-anyway apps. Here are the 5 I'm currently loving. 
She Reads Truth
 It's really important to me to keep growing in my faith even on my busiest days, and this app makes that very easy. Well, as easy as it can be I guess. I heard about this in my bible study and originally just got their emails every morning. It was nice to start each day with a lesson/devotional, because then no matter what, I'm starting my day off in a good state of mind. Once I realized they had an app, I found so many more features. The app has devotionals, the entire bible, lessons you can download to get one every day for two weeks, a month, or a year, and inspirational bible verse backgrounds/screensavers. I really love how easy they've made it to look up a verse, read the bible, or just follow along with a lesson plan whenever you want to/can. Everyone's schedules are busy, but SRT makes it easy to put your faith at the top of your priorities. 

Swork It
  I do not like to sweat. I do not like to work out. But I do like to actually fit in the clothes I spend $$ on, so I've gotta do some sort of exercising. I really like swork it because you can basically control everything about the work out and you can do it from the comfort of your home. You choose and area you want to work on, whether you want something a bit tougher or more relaxing, and how long you want the work out to be. I'm a fan of the 10 minute strength workouts but also the yoga ones. It makes working out extremely easy because they show you what moves to do, time you, and talk to you the whole time so you don't have to stare at your phone the whole time. I. Am. In. Love. 

Time Table
 I am OCD about scheduling. I really have no problem saying that. I love inputting exams and events into my planner, syllabus week is my favorite time of year, and nothing is more exciting to me than a color coded calendar.That's where time table comes in. It's basically just a color coded scheduler, but I like that I can see day view and then week view and each different task has it's own color. It's not revolutionizing my life, but it's really nice to input everything on Sunday and then have that with me 24/7 instead of my huge planner. 

Well Spent
I do not manage money very well. I've said it before, but because I'm saving for Europe next summer, I really am trying to do better about saving my money. This app makes it so easy to set a budget for different areas of your life like groceries, gas, fun, etc. and then keep track of each purchase in that area as your budget gets smaller and smaller. I like seeing which areas I spent more on and then adjusting my budgets each month. Seeing so visually how much I'm actually spending on eating out or going out makes me realize how much more careful I need to be, and it's great. 
  Here's your warning - this game is addictive. I make myself feel better about how much I play it by saying it's a brain game, which I really think it is, but honestly it's just calming. It's not timed and the only record you have to beat is your own, so it's more relaxing than other games, but it does make you think because you have to make the blocks fit together to get rid of rows, so there is a bit of a challenge to it. It's super easy once you get the hang of it, and it's really nice for times when you're waiting for class to start or you're awkwardly waiting for the bus in the morning. 
What apps are you loving right now?
