Our lives are revolving around phones now, and to make things worse, applications are getting more exciting by each updates. We are definitely devoting a lot more time on mobile applications. Free applications are awesome, and for the paid ones, well, they better be worth the money! Other than your games and social networks, here are 5 applications that we’ve picked for you that you NEED to download (if you haven’t) because they are crucial in your life, more important than Farmville in a way or another.
Not a stranger to many already, the Carousell community is still growing strong and bigger each day. I love the application for its convenience. For a person with much items to clear, this is a place where you can sell your new/old/unused stuffs to people. Simply snap the photo, edit, add description and viola – your item will be listed: entirely for free! It is a great way to get rid of stuff and maybe get a good bargain for you. As much as an item hoarder as you are, maybe it’s time to clear some of your unwanted things for others who want it more than you. Give them a new home!
Get free $100 credit when you sign up with an account. You can use the virtual credit to pay for the public sporting facilities. Use the application to book badminton courts at the nearest stadium, or be it to buy tickets to public pool. ActiveSG is an application that inspires and hopes to inculcate a sporting lifestyle for everyone. Now there should be no excuses regarding the inconvenience and costs to using public sporting facilities.
It is THE application to have if you need to know where to eat, very much an online mantra of food places with reviews, offers and addresses. Join in the community of gluttons and good food lovers! The application makes it so easy to add a review and rate a place. This is a must-have application for people who are often indecisive when it comes to meal times. Another reason to fall in love with this application: the avatar and rank system to encourage more usage! It is time to eat well and get competitive.

5) Time Hop
Ever wondered how much you have changed in the years? This application will either make you cringe in fear or smile in nostalgia. You can travel back in time by connecting this application to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, among other social networks to see what you have posted year/s ago on the same day. They also feature some iconic news that happened to the world on the day itself. This application made me glad that I’ve changed for the better in the years.
