Google Maps

The days of bulky paper maps are officially a thing in the past. The ultimate travel companion, Google Maps can help you navigate not only your community, but the country – and even the world! It offers several key functions, including step-by-step voice navigation that can sync up with your car’s speaker system. It even recognizes when you’re on foot, giving you directions as a pedestrian.

Weather Channel

There are a number of great applications out there for weather, and this is among the best. It gives you more than just the temperature in your local city, but also humidity, dew point, visibility, pressure, UV index and wind. It also gives you the hourly forecast, 10-day forecast and push notifications when potentially dangerous whether is coming to your area.


From keeping up with friends to uploading photos, the Facebook application connects you to the world. It’s the perfect app for finding news stories, challenging your friends, and yes, killing some time!

Banking App

Most major banks have an app for mobile banking. From Comerica to Chase, these apps allow customers to access your finances when you’re on the go. You can transfer funds around, view account balances, and see if checks have cleared. These are just of the functions your bank’s app has to offer.


What’s the name of that song on the radio? Just “Shazam” it! This app is incredibly sophisticated, yet super easy to use. All you have to do is open the app, press the Shazam button, and hold your phone near the music output. Your phone will do the rest, combing through thousands of songs to populate the song, artist and album.


Instagram turns every cell phone user into a professional photographer! You can take beautiful pictures, apply an artistic filter and other settings, and upload them directly your favorite social media channels. The app is constantly evolving with new features that make your photos even cooler.
