Bring! Grocery Shopping List
The paper shopping list hanging on your fridge is old-fashioned, and it's time to move over to a digital solution. Bring is a grocery shopping list that makes the practical old list modern and user-friendly. Everyone in your household can collaborate on a shopping list so you'll always know what needs to be bought. It also helps you shop by recipe and stay informed about local deals.
Pixel Art: Colour by Number Game
This color by numbers app is great for relieving stress and taking your mind off of things. The controls are easy to use and there's a ton of art to choose from, with animals, flowers, mandalas, plus other themes, and even 3D objects. New designs are added each day, and you can turn your own photos into pixel art and share them with your friends.
Speedtest by Ookla
Are you getting the speeds your internet provider promised? This speed test app can help you find out now and track results over time. What's even more interesting is the crowdsourced coverage maps for every mobile provider across the US. When you're considering switching carriers, you can use this tool to check if there's a dead zone in your neighborhood.
