Oyster is a digital library that allows access to over one million books, with a monthly subscription of $9.95.
Users call it “Netflix for E-books,” since it is a streaming service for books.
While readers are free to explore a variety of genres, they still have the option of getting an expert recommendation from the application’s editorial team.
If you love to cozy up next to a good read, Oyster is definitely for you.
Once Oyster becomes familiar what the user is reading, it will recommend books accordingly.
This app is amazing for people in all situations, but it especially benefits those who are constantly on the go.
“For commuting, grabbing a solo lunch break, or any other reading on the go, Oyster is my favorite,” stated subscriber Alana Heiss.
All that reading will definitely make you hungry, leading the user to download the Mogl app.
Mogl is a dream come true for people who love to dine out.
There are over a thousand restaurants in over 250 cities that have partnered with Mogl, giving users cash back when using the application.
Users are able to link their debit or credit card and use them at any of the restaurants listed, such as Euro Cafe and My NY Pizza, and they will earn cash back.
Once alerted that the cash has been received, the user has the option of donating the money to a fundraiser of their choice.
“I seriously recommend this app if you love food, and new places,” said student Amanda Tamimi.
The app IFTTT (If This Then That), merges applications to get tasks done in one motion, referred to as “recipes.”
The app allows users to simultaneously share content with each other.
For example, a weather app texts the user the forecast each morning and automatically download a photo to dropbox from other apps.
The opportunities are endless when you have an application like IFTTT. With technology like this you can “put the internet to work for you,” according to their ifttt.com.
Flow Free is a classic, addictive game that will bring those childhood memories back to life.
Players have to connect a series of colored circles to create a pipe flow.
While pairing all the colors, you must cover the entire board to solve each puzzle.
Sounds easy enough until they overlap and all the pipes break. Bummer!
When games aren’t enough, movies definitely do the trick.
MovieFone is a must for movie buffs everywhere.
You can even buy your tickets before arriving. How cool is that?
“I think this app has a lot to offer if you’re a fan of movies,” said student Tammi.
The New Year has only just begun; hopefully these apps will benefit Coyotes in their stressful everyday lives, and provide entertainment, ease of mind, and food for your belly.
