With over 1.2 billion apps in the App Store (and only so much space on your phone), it can be overwhelming to search for new apps. We’ve decided to dive in to the ‘Top 5 Apps For Students This Summer’ to help you out a bit (and keep you cool).
Poshmark- We all have clothes hanging in our closet (collecting dust!) that we never wear. Poshmark is a new app that allows women to snap a picture of their clothes, post it, and receive a direct deposit transaction three days after a buyer purchases the item.
Browse through thousands of closets right from your smartphone. Looking for something specific? Utilize the search bar to narrow in on your favorite brands.
OfferUp- Looking to decorate your new college apartment? Before heading to Ikea, make sure to download OfferUp. Similar to Poshmark, OfferUp is a simple and safe way to sell items in less than 30 seconds. OfferUp is a place to sell not only clothes, but furniture, cell phones, electronics, cars, jewelry, and more- all for a great price!
Starbucks- The Starbucks app allows you to pay for your coffee with the tap of your finger- without having to dig for your wallet. In return for using the app, Starbucks will you treat you to a free reward after earning 12 stars in the store. The BEST part about this app is that you can send and receive giftcards from friends and family!
Heads Up- If it’s good enough for Ellen, you know it had to make the top 5 list. Guess the word on the card that's on your head from your friends' clues before the timer runs out! Choose from over 18 different categories which include: celebrities, movies, animals, accents, characters and more!
Mint- There are two kinds of people in this world - Those who are great savers, and those who love to spend. From Intuit, the makers of TurboTax, QuickBooks, Mint Bills, and Quicken: the free MInt app helps you spend smarter and save more. You can easily add all of your bank accounts, credit cards, investments, loans and more. It’s very easy to creating a budget, bill reminders, and tips for reducing fees and spending money.
