7 apps every woman needs to have

You didn’t think you needed a personalised news feed - did you?

7 apps every woman needs to have
You might not be aware of this, but there are certain apps that no woman should live without. Yes – these include shopping apps. But to be fair, we’ve included both pro and anti-shopping apps.

\nWe won’t further spoil the list for you. Take a look yourself, you can thank us later.
7 apps every woman needs to have
1. Your very own personal assistant

\nAnd it’s Awesome, too. Literally - it’s called Awesome Note.

\nBasically, it’s a personal organiser app that’s pretty much like a personal assistant. It has a built-in calendar, to-do list, party-planning section, photo journal, travel diaries, and anniversary reminders. You’ll wonder how you ever survived without it…

2. Your last-minute beauty emergency rescuer

\nYou know when you’re close to a nervous breakdown because you have an event in an hour and all nearby salons are fully booked? We do.

\nThat’s why we’re eternally grateful to BEEM: the new Dubai app that finds and books your emergency beauty appointments anytime, anywhere. All you have to do is select your preferred treatments, time slots and locations, and BEEM instantly finds you several choices to choose from. It also has a GPS system to help you get to your location hassle free.

3. Your personalised news feed - so you can block Kim Kardashian and Donald Trump news

\nFlipboard, a social news app, allows you to filter only your main interests in one place. So instead of being bombarded by Kim Kardashian’s latest app update, you can actually skim through inspirational morning quotes and millionaire success stories for self-motivation.

4. Your cost controller – to make sure you still have money to eat after you’re done shopping

\nWe’ve all been there at some point. It’s an addiction, that shopping habit. Thankfully, there are apps like Cost that help you control your finances.

\nNot only does it allow you to manage several accounts and categories on your phone, it also creates mini data visualisations to show you exactly how much you’ve been spending and on what and how much you have left.

5. Your secret weapon to stopping your partner from wearing THOSE trousers again

\nGQ men’s magazine app: This might sound like a conspiracy – and it might very well be one – but it’s for the good of everyone involved. Allow me to explain: because most men don’t like spending much time on their style, you can do it for them. How? Simply by skipping through GQ men’s style magazine.

\nThat way, you can innocently and casually share a dozen style dos – and don’ts - over, say, dinner.

6. Your virtual retail collection that’s waiting to be found/bought

\nAdmit it, you have over a thousand screen shots of looks you liked on Instagram and Pinterest style accounts. To free your photo album (for more selfies, if you will), try Pose app.

\nThe photo-sharing app combines Instagram and Pinterest and asks you a series of questions to determine your style. It then suggests other fashion-forward users for you to follow and creates “collections” where you save your favourite “poses,” AKA fashion looks. The best part is: all the posted items are tagged with brand information.

7. Your fitness nightmare – now less scary

\nFor one, Nike Training Club by Nike is a women’s app that allows you to work out from the comfort of your living room. It supplies you with over a 100 workout videos by Nike trainers and super athletes.

\nThe best thing about it? Instead of the usual large muscular men yelling at you to complete those final 50 squats, you get a slightly less scary but still muscular woman.
