I come across a lot of apps as Business Insider’s resident app expert.Some apps are great. Others are total duds. But there are only a handful I use every single day.
These apps are all useful and fun. They help me stay informed, on task, reach goals, make sure I look good, and keep me entertained.
You may have seen a few of these before, but that’s because I really stand by them and actually use them each day.
Next, I'll open Mailbox to check the emails I missed overnight. Mailbox is awesome because it helps me me get my inbox down to zero. I can even set a specific time for an email to pop to the top of my inbox.
Before I roll out of bed I scroll through Tweetbot to see if I missed any interesting news overnight. Tweetbot is the best iPhone Twitter client around.
As I'm walking out the door I'll fire up a playlist on Spotify. Spotify's $9.99 per month subscription lets me save playlists for offline listening. That way I can continue listening on the subway when I have no service.
Sometimes I'll forget to look in the mirror before I walk out of the door so I'll use the regular camera app to make sure I don't have any toothpaste in the corners of my mouth.
