These apps suggested on Ask Reddit are going to make your life a whole lot easier.

1. Tailor. It stitches screenshots of texts or social media posts to create one full image. I use it to capture texting conversations all the time.

2. Quality time. It passive aggressively rubs in your face how much you use your phone. Open the screen and it shows how many times you’ve activated the screen. Wanna see that email notification? Gotta roll past the real time timer saying how long you’ve spent on your phone. Plus you can lock out all or individual apps for up to 24 hours without locking you out of essential apps.

3. Tunity. You can basically scan any TV (restaurants, bars) and hear the audio through your phone if the TV volume is too low or far away for example. It’s pretty wild!

4. CardDiary, it’s a journal app. You upload one picture every single day of the most interesting thing you did that day. After a while it’s really nice and nostalgic when looking back at it.

5. TooGoodToGo

Don’t know if it’s a thing in America but in the UK I use it on a daily basis. Restaurants/cafes/hotels join up and sell “magic boxes.” They’re always at least half the price of their regular food but usually less, and you just turn up at a specified time and get a randomly selected box of food that’s going to go to waste.

Some places let you pick your own, others you just get what you’re given, but it’s saved me a lot of money.

6. CamScanner. Got a homework assignment or drawing you want to post or share? This app will take a picture then make it look like it was scanned, so lines can be darkened and everything easier too see and read. It really beats the hell out of bad lighting and blurryness. All without a scanner.

7. Anylist. Basically an app my wife and I use primarily for shopping. Helps us plan meals and save money and when you share a list, you can each add to the same list.

8. Sleep Cycle. It tracks your sleep quality and the alarm clock wakes you up in a period you set when it determines it will be easy for you to wake up. Works like a charm, makes mornings easy.

9. A Soft Murmur. I’ve never heard anybody talk about it before but it’s fantastic. It plays the sounds of rain, thunder, wind and waves, and has sliding bars beside each for you to choose the exact prominence of each of these sounds (slide it to the very left to not play a particular one.)

I turn it on and have it in the background while I read and while I sleep and I love it.

It’s a free app but there’s also more sounds available to purchase like fire, birds, crickets, white noise, coffee shop and singing bowl

10. Virtual Hope Box. Mental health app. It’s designed specifically for PTSD, but honestly it’s great for any variety of anxiety or depression. It’s also completely free without ads.

11. Radio Garden, so many radio stations around the world available at your fingertips. Love it!!!

12. Loop – Habit Tracker! I use it to control I do my Spanish lessons on Duolingo each day, that I workout every other day, that I take my pills, that I remember to see everything as an opportunity. It’s a great simple app, and the dark mode is beautiful.

And it’s free with no ads!!

13. Skyscanner app. If you are planning on traveling please download this. Have used it many times, found a ticket to Ireland from the USA round trip for $350. That plus AirBnb and you have some seriously cheap trips, my parents literally couldn’t believe it.

14. Alarmy. Have trouble getting up in the morning? Download this, and your phone will scream until you get out of bed and go take a picture of your microwave.

15. Forest! It’s a game that lets you plant a little tree or bush for 5-120 minutes and doesn’t let you click out of the app until the timer is over. This let’s you be more productive while not having the temptation of your phone. If you do exit out of the app, it kills all the trees you have planted and leaves behind a shriveled bush

16. Daylio. It’s a free, simple daily mood tracking app. I got it on new years to track my mood and activities and it has helped me tremendously. It’s simple and fun enough to use that it doesn’t feel like a chore or stress me out, and I can look back and see what made me feel good so I could turn bad days around. I’ve always wanted to be a person that kept a journal so I could remember and separate days in my mind (mental illness is a bitch); and this is the only thing I’ve ever stuck with daily. Today I’m on a 142 day streak!

17. My Fitness Pal (when utilized properly) is really good too for helping lose weight and keeping track of what you’re eating, how much water you’re drinking, exercise you’re getting etc.

18. Flo is my go to for keeping track of my periods.

19. Gas Buddy, tells you all the prices of gas around you and you can go to the cheapest station.

20. Notification History Log.

The number of times I’ve swiped a notification away by mistake… This little app allows me to go back and take a look at what I’ve missed.

Also allows you to look back at WhatsApp messages that someone sent but later decided to delete. Some cracking drunk texts have been rediscovered using this method.

21. Night Sky helps you find constellations and planets in the real night sky using your phone’s location and gyroscope.

22. Transit is an app that gives real-time data on busses and other public transportation services (including GPS locations of the vehicles!). I used it in Canada in a few cities in my province, it might work elsewhere.

23. Should I Answer. It’s free, and can auto block spam callers if you’ve been called by them before. It also has reviews from the called, saying what the number is (call center, debt collection, car dealer etc…)

24. iNaturalist. You can take pictures of living things and it can suggest what species it might be.

25. Google’s Arts and Culture, it’s also a website.

Basically Google unbeknownst to most people teamed up with art galleries and museums worldwide to take extremely high def pictures of thousands of pieces. There are paintings, sculptures, posters, historical artifacts, photographs, etc.You can explore if by movement, historical events, specific colour, artist, whatever. There are ever changing curated online exhibits, virtual tours of museums, extensive articles. They’re also working on lots of fun experimental toys, trying to play with where art and technology mix.

A must for any artist or history fan.

26. Idagio. The best app for listening to classical music ever. It lets you search by composer, performer or name, and it has recommendations.

27. Duolingo, I know that everyone jokes about the owl but really, every time I open the app up I’m astonished. It keeps education free, it pays homage to languages that might have died without their help, it has High Valyrian, a fictional language. All of it is for the price of a few ads, they aren’t even video adds, they’re just pictures that you can quickly click out of. The lessons are easy too, the hearts thing is a bit annoying but it really is worth it and they make words easy to pick up.

28. If you have an iPhone, there’s an app on it called “Measure”, which uses your camera and you can select two points and measure the distance between the two, pretty nifty.

29. Flipp. For those who grocery shop often, it’s a nice way to view current sales around you.

30. Water Time Pal – reminds me throughout the day to drink water and tells me what I should be taking in. I have it set for 2400mL and I get a notification every 2 hours.

31. Libby – you can borrow audiobooks and books from your local library.

32. Taste. You rate movies/tv series, and by your ratings it gives you things you might enjoy watching. Plus it tells you which are on Netflix, Amazon etc.

33. Waze. Social traffic mapping, where users can report the live status of road hazards/closures and traffic with a pleasant to use layout.

Oh and did I mention speed traps?

34. Alltrails, it shows you all the hiking and biking trails near you with ratings and filters and it’s just awesome.

35. Be My Eyes is a great app! It was created to help blind people become more independent throughout the day. Anyone can register as either a blind person or a volunteer. If a blind person needs help using a vending machine, finding the right color shirt, or adding the correct ingredient to their meal, a volunteer is just one call (video chat) away. I get a call every few weeks and I always feel so good after helping someone and having a good conversation.

I encourage all my friends to get this app and definitely recommend it to you guys!

36. Google Earth. You can see almost every spot on this planet without moving you butt or spending a dime. I’m an avid traveler.

37. FishBrain. The app is used to log the fish you catch. It uses this data from the community to give info like: good fishing spots for each species, most successful bait for that spot, etc…

The premium version gives the entire charts, not just the top listing. It also gives a chart for what hours the fish are most likely to bite.

38. GymBook. Been using it for a couple of years. Great way to build different workouts and track them.

39. Migraine Buddy. It’s a free app that helps track your migraines and factors that may be contributing to it as well as relief. It also has articles that shed some light on the subject, and it tracks your sleep with eerie accuracy.

40. Poop map. With it you can keep a record on where you’ve pooped and how you rated the experience. You can also share it with your followers and see others ratings.

41. Webtoon. I don’t ever really see it talked about. It’s free, it’s got tons of great comics, I highly recommend it.

42. Scanbot. I’ve been using it to scan receipts and other things to track my spending for every week.

43. Instapaper for saving articles from the web for offline and format free reading.

44. For those of you that need to talk to someone but don’t know who to talk to or how, I recommend Replika, it’s a personalize self-learning chatbot that will try its best to either cheer you up or at least keep you company during darker times. The developers don’t keep track of what’s its learned unless you submit something to them (like if it sounds like it’s going crazy and there might be a problem with the code). All of your information is stored clientside. It has easy access to the suicide hotline and other help hotlines. I use it myself, it’s really been helping me.

45. Splitwise makes keeping track of split bills with my partner and friends super easy. Recently went on holiday with my partner and a friend and basically whoever had their card most readily accessible paid at the time, and we worked it all out with this app. Super easy.

46. Notification Notes. It lets you put notes on your lockscreen. Simple, useful, does what it says.

47. Google Trips is amazing.

My first solo trip was to Thailand and I didn’t know how to plan a trip and it wasn’t great.

My second solo trip to Japan was amazing because of this app. Firstly, any relevant emails that you recieved through Gmail get added, so all of your hotel and flight reservation info are in one place. It also saves them in Google Maps for you so you don’t need to remember to pin them. Phone numbers and addresses too, so you can show a taxi driver. Most places have detailed transportation info: from how to get into the city from the airport, to miniscule rules for public transit, like if they only exit from the back doors of the bus so you don’t look like an ass. They mine Maps for tons of restaurant reviews. I like that you can choose what’s really close, or cheap eats (great for breakfast) or when you don’t want a lot of fuss). It can create customized day plans for you, or adjust to what’s near by you at the moment.

There’s tons of other cool little features too. And you can download most of the info in case you don’t have data. I can’t recommend this enough!

48. If you’re a parent in the UK, there’s an app called Hoop which is really bloody good. You type in the age of your child(ren) and how far you want to travel, and it gives you a comprehensive list of all the activities available for your child in that area. Parenthood can be incredibly isolating, especially for first time parents, and this app is a great way to see what’s happening and get out of the house.

49. I’m really enjoying Drops, which is a visual vocabulary app for learning non-English* language. I can hold a conversation in (broken) French due to learning it when I was young, but I’m certainly not fluent and I’ve learned about 400 new terms/phrases in the past few months. When you learn a word it pronounces it for you as well as shows you a simple graphic representing what the word is, which I’ve found has really helped my absorption (though I recommend turning on the feature that lists its English translation after you solve each puzzle, because sometimes I would forget what exactly the word I learned meant because the graphic wasn’t as specific as I needed it to be).

You can play for 5 minutes every 10 hours, though if you maintain a streak you earn bonus time, and after every session there’s an option to watch an ad to earn an extra minute. You can pay to get unlimited access but I actually really like having short sessions twice a day, because I’m definitely the type to want to learn as much as possible as fast as possible, and then burn out on it because I didn’t pace myself.v

50. Paprika. Save recipes while stripping out the backstory about how the author’s childhood was shaped by the whimsical strawberry garden she had access to in rural Vienna.


Am Humble and simple but hate *shit* I'm popularly address as Ballotech due to my optmost ideal and researchs on technology, I graduated from federal poly Ede and represent my able faculty and various research ground.

If your card is swallowed, do not ignore it or leave it for a few days until you have time to deal with it. Not only may this compromise the security of your account, but it may also lead to your details being stolen, and may also implicate you in any malfeasance/misgivings that take place after your card is lost.

To reduce ATM problems;

  • Do not be one of those people who take their cards on holiday without checking when they expire.
  • If possible, use an ATM inside of an actual bank branch or outside of the bank branch. This is especially a good idea if you are travelling abroad and using ATMs. There is less risk of fraud if you use an ATM inside a bank and if the ATM eats your card, you can simply talk to one of the bank tellers to resolve the issue.

  • Sometimes if there is an error during your transaction, your card may be ejected when the error resolves itself, or when the machine is rebooted.
  • Do not keep all your cash in one place and on one card. Plus, keep at least a little paper cash around in case your card is swallowed or accounts are frozen.

  • If you are abroad, take your passport with you because they can use it as ID to verify your identity with the bank.
  • In some countries it may be a good idea to use ATMs during the day because sometimes an employee may be able to retrieve it for you.

When the ATM machine eats your ATM card, this is what you are supposed to do;

Recently, this very situation happened to me I used my ATM card while travelling abroad and the machine froze with my card in it. I was preparing to call the bank number on the ATM but waited about 10 minutes first. After ten minutes, the machine restarted and my ATM card was spit back out. Needless to say, I did not put my card back in.

If waiting for 10 to 15 minutes does not resolve the issue, well move on to this. Note down the time the machine swallowed your card and try to be as specific as possible. Note the date, the place you are, and the type of machine (if possible). For example, is it an ATM outside a bank and/or controlled and branded by the bank, or is it a stand-alone ATM in the street, or an ATM in a mall. Does it have a name, brand logo, and/or any other details?

Is there a number you can call on the machine itself, or any helpful information that may be relevant? If so, you should make a note of it and have a quick look at the ATM to see if it has been tampered with. You may want to use your phone to take a picture of the ATM and the numbers on it so you can show a bank later.


The bank or institution you use will have its own rules and own definitions. Some will say you have to raise a claim with the bank, others will say that you have to raise an inquiry, and some may say your account is frozen and freeze your account until the matter is resolved.

It is not wise to contact the ATM provider unless the bank you use and the ATM provider are the same company. In this case, your problem may be resolved a little quicker. When you raise the issue with your bank, they will often contact the ATM provider, but if you raise it with the ATM provider, then they will refer you to your bank and/or account provider.

If you can’t find the bank associated with the ATM, look for the contact number on the ATM (there usually is) and call it for support. You may be able to get a technician to come to the location right away and deal with the issue.


You have to understand that every bank and account provider has their own way of dealing with swallowed cards. Some banks will destroy any cards that are swallowed by their machines. If you lose a debit or credit card, you should be able to cancel that card over the phone almost 100% of the time, but you may need to remember your telephone banking passwords and such.

There are some banks and accounts where you can cancel your cards over the Internet, and some allow you to cancel or freeze your cards with your mobile. It is also highly likely that you can cancel your card by walking into a branch and having the staff cancel it for you.


Every developed country and/or state has some sort of regulatory body that may be approached if it is taking too long to fix your issue. It usually takes around 15 days to get your problem fixed.

Sometimes you may get lucky and get your card back the day after, or may cancel your card and get a new one after a week. If there is an investigation, it will usually take around two weeks, and if you need a refund of sorts, then it will probably take 15 working days.

If you have been trying and trying and still haven’t had any sort of luck or success with your bank and/or account provider, then go to the regulatory body that deals with this sort of thing, which is usually some sort of financial ombudsman.


There are times when a machine has been tampered with and is actually running very slowly, which may make a person believe their card has been swallowed when it is really taking its time to get out. There are also times when the eject function is weak and only pushes out the tip of the card to the point where it is hard to see. There are also other machines that want you to put your fingers into the indent to pull out your card.

There are times when ATMs are tampered with so that they reject and spit out your card after a few minutes, so it may pay to stick around for a little while and see if others are able to use the machine.

In the US your card is often ejected far sooner than in Europe, where your card is often rejected after all operations have been concluded. There are some countries that use more pin numbers or less pin numbers and you may have just entered the wrong pin a number of times. There are also times when the exchange rate muddles the issue and you accidentally take out more than you meant to, or reach your withdrawal limit without realizing.

Making her feel needed is one of the sure ways to win her loyalty [Source/acceleratetv.com]

Making a woman fall in love can be very easy, but what about keeping her feeling the same for longer?

It takes another set of things in a relationship that a man can do to make a woman stay loyal to him.

Here are three keg to a woman’s loyalty;

1. Be trustworthy

The most important thing a man can do to make his woman stay loyal to him is proving to her that he’s worth being trusted.

In simple terms, a woman’s loyalty is largely dependent on how much her man trusts her and even more on how much he scores when it comes to her trust.

Do not show her love today and later go out with somebody else.

2. Make her feel needed

Nothing feels as fine as being needed. Once a woman feels needed by her man, she will have no reason not to stay loyal to him.

As a man, you should show her how important she is in your life.

Call or text her whenever you can, and always say things that can make her stay.

3. Be an ambitious man

Every woman would want an ambitious man; a man who has a future.

Show her that you have a purpose in her life and your own life.

Set some goals, work towards them and let her know about them.

Money can’t buy loyalty, just put efforts into your relationship.
