App Review: Apps help geo-locate reminders, plan fitness routine

Having too many apps with similar functions hinders your ability to find the right app for what you want.

Here are four life improvement tools that can actually make an impact instead of sitting on the fourth page of your iPhone home screen:

1. Cal – Cal is a planner with a user-friendly interface. It has geo-location reminder technology, setting up reminders to go off based on where instead of just when. Students can set reminders to buy a specific type of scantron as soon as they get to campus or automatically pull up a shopping list when entering Safeway.

2. Feedly – Feedly is an innovative tool helping minimize social media distractions by encompassing all feeds from your social media accounts in a magazine-style priority platform.

3. Gain Fitness  A fitness app is not necessarily on most people’s favorite app lists, but this one made the cut because of its flexibility. It doesn’t matter whether you only have five minutes or two hours, Gain fitness creates personalized workouts that adhere to your time constraints as well as help keep you on track to losing those extra pounds.

4. Bitcasa – Being a cloudbased storage app, Bitcasa might not seem like the app that would be used on a daily basis, but it is a must-have in a student’s collection with its spectacular interface, easy maneuverability and 10 gigabytes of free storage. It helps to save uploaded notes, study guides, presentations, photos and any kind of data on your mobile device for easy access without having to rely upon the storage space.
