Lyft (Free): 

Everyone asks how I survive in LA without a car—and the answer is Lyft. To save money, I usually use the carpool feature.

Snapseed (Free): 

This app makes photo editing a breeze! My Instagram feed became so much more beautiful once I started using it.

Acorns (Free):

Wish you were better at saving money? This app rounds up each purchase I make to the nearest dollar and invests the change.

Podcasts (Free): 

I’m obsessed with knowledge! The Podcasts app gives me my fix of subjects like economics (EconTalk), philosophy (Sam Harris), and theology (The Liturgists).

Venmo (Free): 

All my fellow freelancers rely heavily on Venmo. I use it to make quick and easy payments to band members, photographers, videographers, etc.

Voice Memos (Free): 

You never know when artistic inspiration will strike! The Voice Memos app captures my songwriting ideas as soon as they hit me.

Slack (Free): 

My coworkers at Ballotpedia are located all around the country, but Slack helps us stay in touch by allowing us to send quick messages to individuals or teams.

Crowdfire (Free): 

Social media management is made easy with this app. Every day Crowdfire prescribes actions I can take to grow my online presence—and then it helps me execute them.

Health (Free): 

Working from home makes it dangerously easy to be lazy, so I use the built-in Health app to count my steps and log other measurements.

Sleep Time (Free): 

I’ve been monitoring my sleep for years with this app. I love the ambient sounds, and it helps me make sure I’m getting 8 hours of sleep each night.
