My Top 10 Favorite Apps

*These are in no particular order. These apps are featured for Androids and are not guaranteed to work with IOS.


Robinhood: This is a great app for those that like or want to invest. I have invested in quite a few stocks using this app. It’s easy to use and you aren’t charged a fee to trade. Best of all, if you use a referral code, you get a free stock. So, you have nothing to lose! Stocks are down and will eventually go back up. Stock UP! You can sign up here:  https://join.robinhood.com/lavonnr7


Ally/Ally Card Controls: So this app is for those of us that have an account with Ally Bank, which is an online-only bank. All deposits have to come from a check, direct deposit, or Zelle. However, you can withdraw money from the thousands of ATMs that Ally partners with. But, what I really love about this app is the fact that you can turn your spending off and on at any time. Not only that, you can choose what categories you want to turn off and on. For example, if I don’t want to use my card in a department store, you can just click on that category to disable purchases. You will get an instant text/notification that your charge was denied. This is great to avoid fraud.


Fetch Rewards: This app is great for those that constantly grocery shop. You get points for scanning all your grocery receipts. You get bonus points if the item you purchase is a featured item on the app. Once you get up to a certain amount of points, you can use them to spend on gift cards. Sign up here and get 2,000 free points: $2 in points when you snap your first receipt. https://fetchrewards.onelink.me/vvv3/referralsocial?code=TM95T


The Pattern: This app has gotten me together and told me about myself. You put in your name, birth date, time, etc. and it will tell you about the different “patterns” and cycles you go through, throughout your life. It gives you the dates of how long the cycles will last, etc. It’s a cool app and it made me reevaluate myself and the things I do. You can friend me on this app: MoonResident


Keto: I am currently a part of the Keto lifestyle and this app has helped me to watch the carbs I take in. You track what you eat and it gives you a breakdown of the foods’ nutritional values. It’s better to scan the barcode of the food you consume for accuracy, if applicable. You also track your activity, water intake, measurements, plus add notes. 


Keto Diet Recipes: On the Keto lifestyle, there are certain things that you can not eat so, I am always trying to think of creative recipe ideas. This app has those recipes. I feel like I have become a better cook since starting the Keto lifestyle. 


Ibotta: Another great app to use when your grocery shop. You can also use it when shopping at major retailers. With the cashback you save, you can send it to your PayPal account or put it on a gift card to use at one of your favorite stores. Use this code to join: Just use my referral code “hoqxmeo” at registration. Sign up at → https://ibotta.onelink.me/iUfE/8cc13c64


Rakuten: PLEASE use this app when you shop online. You get cashback from most of your favorite stores. Like Ibotta, the cashback goes into your PayPal account. I use this every time I purchase from Amazon. I even used it to get cashback on my recent phone upgrade. This is a great way to have a little extra cash in your pocket.


Let’s Meditate: It’s in the name, Meditate. This is a great app to use if you need some time to breathe, calm down, and/or focus. There are a variety of guided meditations to choose from: from mindfulness, self-love to abundance. This helps me when I am feeling a little overwhelmed with work or sometimes life in general.


Bejeweled Classic: Before there was Candy Crush, there was Bejeweled. This game is absolutely addicting to me; it’s 7 games in one. It’s more than just matching 3 or more jewels. They made it a challenge with the Poker, Ice Storm and Butterflies levels.
