Our Top 5 Apps We Love This Week
Some of Fueled's favorite apps this week!
Every week at Fueled, we share an internal anthology of the week’s greatest new apps. As mobile app developers, we’re lucky to hear about and download cool new apps every day that make our lives easier, entertain us, or keep our eyes and hands busy in awkward situations.
Here are some things we’re keeping our eyes on this week.
There’s nothing worse than seeing the perfect outfit online and having to wait days or weeks to actually wear it for the first time. We know what we want and we want it now! Stylr is a free app available in the App Store that will help you find the clothes you love in the stores around you. Now you can browse through clothes in nearby shops and know if your favorite items are in stock and available currently in your size. You can also browse through categories like color, price, store and brands.
Download the free Strava Cycling or Strava Run iPhone app to track your bike rides or runs via GPS. Both apps are also available for Android. Once you’re done, your workout data summary is sent automatically to strava.com so you can analyze your performance, track your progress, join fitness challenges online and watch how you’re stacking up against friends and locals for a little kick of motivation.
Double Music Player
You've forgotten your headphones for your subway ride to work and your best friend kindly offers to share hers with you. Suddenly, listening to the screaming baby for 16 stops sounds like a better option than her nails-on-a-chalkboard jams. Some people have awful taste in music, but we know you’re not one of them. Fortunately, with the Double Music Player app, you can listen to two different songs for each headphone and control volume settings independently of one another. Now you can share, bond and remain close while enjoying your music. It's almost as sweet as a double rainbow.
Ever wish you could limit your Instagram feed to just the hotties? Perhaps you only want to browse your followed fashion and style blogs? We know you’re tired of seeing your mom’s awkward selfies but don’t have the heart to unfollow her. With the new InstaFeed app you can build custom feeds to categorize your browsing experience. Separate family, co-workers, friends or any others and interact with their content freely on Instagram.
Microsoft Office Mobile
For all you Word and Excel-philes, the moment has finally arrived! Microsoft has made Office available on any device with the launch of its Office Mobile for iPhone app. The app is available for free for users who subscribe to its cloud-based Office program that costs $100 per year: Office 365. Your work doesn't wait for you to find the nearest computer and neither should you. Now you can access, review and edit documents on-the-go in Excel, PowerPoint, Word and OneNote.
