Apps For Men
With the Fall coming up, I wanted to write a “Top 10” list of men’s apps that would be useful for them. I have listed out 10 apps, I’m sure there are a ton more, but these 10 cover all areas of a man’s life and can help make the day to day a little bit easier.
10. WatchESPN – Sports Related. Free.
Every man needs a sports app on his phone to catch up on scores, find out at what time the big game is on and to even watch sports live. The WatchESPN app is available in both the Android and iOs marketplaces. Live streams are available with no additional cost to the user.
9. Dark Sky – Weather App. $3.99
Dark Sky has new technology that will predict when it will rain or snow at your location with down to the minute notifications. They also provide some really cool visuals with stunning maps and pictures. It’s only available on the iOS marketplace and it works to keep you from getting wet, literally.
8. Valet – Men’s Fashion. Free.
Valet is a men’s fashion magazine app that provides up-to-the-minute news and stories based off of grooming and culture and style. It’s tailored specifically for the iPhone and it’s very easy to navigate. They also provide some style resources depending on your location and they teach you how to take your own measurements and easily save them.
7. Packing Pro – Travel App. $2.99
PackingPro is the pro version of the packing app. It allows you to easy create lists of items that you’ll need when traveling. The upgrade includes pre-packed lists for couples, families, business people and campers. Once you add something to your suitcase, you can cross it off the virtual list so you will never forget anything again. Available in the iOS market.
6. TipMaster – Dining Out. Free.
TipMaster is perfect for those of us who don’t know how to tip properly or how much to tip. It includes options for difference percentage of tips and you can even split the bill if amongst friends. Figuring out how much you should leave your server won’t be a problem anymore. Available on the Android marketplace.
5. Tie A Tie – Clothing App. Free.
I have no idea how to tie a bowtie let along know what the a Windsor knot is. This app shows you how to do all of that plus it teaches you how to fold pocket squares and tie a scarf correctly for men. The app is available in both the iOS and Android marketplaces and I highly recommend this to any guy who is in the same boat as me.
4. Mixology – Cocktail App. Free.
This is one of my favorite apps of all time. I have a bartender certification but whenever I’m not sure how to make a drink, I pop open this bad boy and type in the name of the drink and bam, ingredients in no time. It even gives you a few modifications for the drink and different liquors to use to make it. Plus, it makes you look awesome slinging drinks together. Available on iOS and Android.
3. Men’s Health Workouts –Fitness App. $1.99.
The Men’s Health Workouts app pretty much takes the magazine and provides the exclusive workouts to your phone. It’s only available in the iOS market and it includes workouts from top coaches, athletes and fitness experts. They have over 165 exercises available.
2. PinchMe – Free Stuff. Free.
PinchMe was one I heard of on the radio. Whenever big brands have new products they want consumers to try, they send samples to PinchMe and they box it up and send it to you. You have to log on quickly though as samples go fast. I’ve gotten an array of things from coffee to condoms and it’s all free. They just ask you to fill out some feedback on whether or not you would buy the items in store. PinchMe is available on iOS or from your desktop.
1. NPR News – News App. Free.
NPR news is probably the least bias news app out there. I think it’s important that any man know what’s going on in not only the United States but the world as well. It makes you look more intelligent to know what news just broke and where. It’s available on both the iOS and Android marketplace.
I’m sure there are a bunch more apps that you men could recommend. Write me some more ideas and I’ll take a look at them for next time!
