Below are my top 6 iPhone app picks for Entertainment, Work, Security, What’s Around Town, Fitness, and Travel. I hope you enjoy and please give me app suggestions or feedback in the comments.
AirBnB is an the app/service that allows you to find accommodations virtually from locals around the world. Just enter the dates you are planning to travel and the city you are going to. Then you’ll get a list of available housing locals are renting out in the area. AirBnB is a great (and often better and cheaper) alternative than renting a hotel and is almost always a much better way to get the “local’s” experience of a place.
Couch to 5k -Free
Couch to 5k is an app designed to help the average, non-runner get into a routine to help them get fit. The name speaks for itself when describing what type of fitness level you can start off with, so there is no need to worry about how long it’s been since you last sported those dusty trainers.
This app uses a time frame of three times a week, for 20-30 minutes for nine weeks to allow users to go from virtually no exercise to the ability to run 3.1 miles.
