Measure | iOS
New app that comes with iOS 12. The new Measure app allows you to use augmented reality (AR) to measure lines using only the back camera of your iPhone. The Measure app works pretty well in a pinch if you find yourself without a tape measure near you.
Skiplagged | iOS & Android
Skiplagged is different than most travel apps because it searches a little-known area of bookings called “Hidden City” flights. Essentially, these are flights that can be booked more inexpensively than normal because they occur as layovers to other destinations. It’s a complicated process, but basically, Skiplagged sifts through all the possible combinations in order to get users the cheapest flights possible.
TAB | iOS
Everyone dreads the moment when it’s finally time to split up the check. Tab makes it easy. The app allows you to snap a photo of your receipt, designate items for individuals in your group, and split up the prices, tax, and tip. You can share the receipt with others, and the app even supports Venmo — so there’s no excuse for that one friend who always seems to dodge the bill.
RunPee | iOS & Android
The RunPee app exists to improve your movie-going experience. The database is updated weekly, whenever wide-release films open in theaters -- to tell you the best times to run and pee, without missing the best scenes. The built-in Timer will alert you, by discreet vibration, when a Peetime is coming - so you don't have to worry about bothering the people around you in the theater.
