With spring approaching quickly, making sure you have these 2018 spring must-have apps for things like gardening, fitness, home, etc. is essential. When the snow clears and the clouds open and we have sunshine and warmth, it is almost a guarantee that people get right to work prepping their gardens for the upcoming months. One of the most popular apps for gardening for 2018 is “Gardening Companion.” It is a free app that affords the viewer thousands of articles, and photos and videos on a number of different topics. From how to garden to solving common problems in the garden, this is a must-have app for anyone garden lover.
Don’t worry fitness lovers, we haven’t forgotten about you! There are a plethora of fitness apps out there to download that will keep you in tip-top shape. Whether you’re in the gym working out or out there training for a 5k, some of the top apps for 2018 will help you reach your goal. One app is “MyFitnessPal.” While this isn’t an app that gives you different workouts and tips, it is the perfect app to catalog your calorie intake and make sure you’re getting the right nutrition. Something that is essential to a healthy fitness style. Another is “ACTIVEx- HIIT Workouts.” This app allows the user to be able to create their own High-Intensity Interval Training which they can make sure is right for them. But, if that’s not what you’re looking for, they also offer spin workouts as well as personalizing your own plan for a 5k or 10k, or even if you just want to get out and run, you can do that too. While all those features sound great, they aren’t the only great things about this app. The difference between this and so many other fitness apps is that it allows you to create a kid-friendly workout to help get your children active and moving around. Unfortunately, this is an app only offered on iOS but for all, you Android users out there, “SWORKIT” is a perfect alternative. While it is available on both iOS and Android, it allows you to set a goal for yourself and when you input your fitness level, it spits you out a six-week workout plan that is specially designed just for you to help you reach your goal. You can check out the app for ACTIVEx here!
Now, there are those of you who love to spend all their time outdoors in your garden or working out, but for those of you that love to spend your time inside taking care of your home, there are apps just for you. One very popular home shopping app is “Chairish.” With this app, available on Android and iOS, you can buy or sell high-quality, pre-owned furniture all in one place. The app does all the work for you. You just upload a picture of the particular item(s), then the curators of the app decide which ones to sell and the company takes care of the rest. Shipping, payment, and returns are all covered by the company. However, because they make it so easy, if your item(s) to sell, you keep 80 percent of the sale and the company takes the other 20. Some people may not find it ideal but being able to just upload your item(s) and let the company do the rest is easy and hassle-free. To some people, this sounds great, but to others, not so much. If you’re someone who doesn’t like the idea of only getting back 80 percent of your sale, then there are plenty of other apps out there for you. One is “Hutch.” Hutch lets you shop for furniture by having you upload a picture of the desired room and then the app places furniture in the room that matches the style. With this particular app, it’s very easy to use and its mobile device friendly, being available on both Android and iOS.
Just as an added bonus, if you’re someone who is looking for an easy video editor on your phone, to create a professional looking video in just a few taps, “Quik” is the perfect app to have. This popular and easy app is available for both Android and iOS making it universal across mobile devices and one that produces great results. With the app, you can import photos or videos from your camera roll, or even Facebook and Instagram. With all its features, the editor allows you to add highlights to your clip, change the format, and even add a number of different filters. And if you feel so inclined, the creator allows you to add a title to your clip as well. When you’re done, there is no hassle to upload it. You can save it, or even share it directly to Facebook or Instagram. It is a great hassle-free way to create videos right on your phone.
