Great Apps In 2020

We live in a technology driven world that allows for almost everything to happen online. This is a list of the best apps I have found in the last while. As you guys know I love tracking activities so expect to see some tracking on here. I did exclude most social media or social media assistant apps due to the fact that they are the most downloaded apps, so I would assume everyone knows about them already.

Goodreads

This app allows you to log books you’ve read, read introductions to other novels and it’s algorithm provides you with novels you would enjoy based off ones you’ve read before. It allows for rating and reviews of books, which you can use to determine if the book is for you or not! It is free and the app even encourages you to set a reading goal for the year!

iMal

This MyAnimeTracker app is the apple version. It has a rating system for anime and allows you to track your anime! You can read reviews and see community ratings on shows as well as stats from each show as well. It also has a manga sections that works the same way!

Pintrest

This may have started out as a DIY site, but is has shifted over the years to include recipes, fashion, fandom, fan art, beauty, etc. I have come across so many great blogs, cleaning hacks and recipes on this site over the years that I couldn’t recommend it more. I would say almost every dinner we eat is inspired by something I saw on Pinterest.

AllTrails

This app will tell you every obscure and main trail in the region you are in. When I was in British Columbia I loved using this app to not only find new trails to hike, but directions on how to get them even when they didn’t show up on Google Maps. They give excellent information on trail conditions and the difficulties you may find on them. They even include casual walking trails suitable for small children and elderly individuals.

Sephora

Keeping an eye on this app can help you save so much money on your cosmetics! Items go on sale all the time and you can check it out without having a million spam emails hitting your inbox daily. It also lets you keep track of your Insider points and you can shop online on your account with the sale prices without having to get shouldered and bolstered around in the mall.

NFB Film

This is the National Film Board of Canada app. The short films are always worth a watch. I have found this app has helped introduce me to art I never would have found on my own and cultures I didn’t understand before plunging into the content created about them. There is a wide variety of projects that appeal to nearly every audience.

Reminders – Apple

Anyone with an iPhone has this app, but do you use it? I keep track of my bill payments, rent, grocery lists, to do lists and more in it and it’s incredibly convenient. Until last year I was still doing a paper grocery list that I lost constantly and never had a pen handy to mark off products. I love using this app.

OpenTable

This is a restaurant reservation app that allows you to gather points when you eat out. It has community reviews of restaurants and always link to restaurants websites so that you can check the menu. People are welcome to share photos of their meals, so you can see an accurate representation of the quality available before walking through the door.

Have you tried any of these apps? What were your thoughts on them? What apps do you think should have made the list? Let me know in the comments!
