Brrrrr. It’s cold outside! As the weather gets crappier and the past traces of Halloween start to disappear, we find ourselves surrounded by mugs, gloves, annoying Christmas songs, and less hobos on the streets. To keep you as warm as you were in your mother’s womb, here are some apps to check out!
1. Starbucks – Free for iOS/Android. What’s a better app than Starbucks for any God-fearing people? You can use the app as a way to pay for your next drink at Starbucks. Reload and transfer balances between your credit cards to your Starbucks app. You can also use the app to locate the nearest Starbucks so you can be the only hipster in the shop! App Man found this app to be very useful, easy to learn, and convenient! Be warned though, as this app will make you a Starbucks slave. 4/5
2. Allrecipes.com Dinner Spinner – Free for iOS/Android. Since winter is so cold, why not make some food to stay warm? An easy and fun way to find unique recipes, Allrecipes.com allows you to mix and match with different ingredients. You can scan your ingredients and see what you can come up with. And not only can you share your lists with your friends but you can also seek recipes to fit your dietary needs including gluten-free and vegetarian delicacies. 5/5
3. Sears Canada – Free for iOS/Android. Need a scarf? A jacket? A hat jacket? A hat jacket scarf glove? What? The Sears Canada app gives you instant access to all the products you can find available on the website, Sears.ca. You’ll be able to find tons of well-known brand products and view reviews before making purchases. As well, there are daily deals and a Sears weekly flyer. App Man found this app to be extremely useful, and he swears Sears Canada is not paying him to advertise. He just really likes Sears. 3.5/5
4. Pocket – Free for iOS/Android. Got a little bit of battery left on your phone? Pocket allows you to sync your favorite websites and view them offline. It automatically syncs to where you want, including your tablet, phone, and computer. Not only that, this applies to videos as well! So that means you can watch your favorite porn on the airplane! Yay! 4/5
5. Songza – Free for iOS/Android. Because winter is sure to be cold, harsh, and quite depressing, Songza will guarantee that you won’t have to resort to strange acts to keep yourself in a positive mood. Playing music at the right time, Songza allows you to choose any “mood categories” such as Working Out, Brand New Music, etc. and it will play the music that fits best in that category. You’ll be able to discover new music genres that you might have never cared to listen to and purchase music if you want. App Man gives Songza 5/5 due to its possibilities!
