National App Day

National App Day was Sunday, December 11. In honor of that, the MOBLZ staff compiled a list of some of our favorite apps. Check out what our group of developers, artists, managers, and designers picked out.

Game Apps

Genshin Impact
(Google + iOs)  Welcome to the beautiful fantasy world of Teyvat. Step into a huge open-world of adventure and mystery, where heroic quests await. As a traveller from another world, you must find your lost sibling and unravel Teyvat's many secrets.

(Google + iOs) Tropicats by Wooga is a puzzle game where you earn prizes and objects to build civilization on a tropical island inhabited by cats. Snarky and fun with a little bit of adult humor thrown in to make you literally laugh out loud. Fun and VERY addictive.

Payment Apps

(Google + iOs) This app allows you to send money instantly, spend, save and invest as well. It’s safe, fast, and free to use. It’s a great way to be able to give a gift to someone you don't know how to buy for.

(Google + iOs) Venmo allows you to send and receive money and is a great app for splitting the costs of things, such as a meal. You can add notes to help remember what the money was spent on. You can also use it as a payment app for groups like Scouts or sports teams.

Our Favorite Paid Apps

(Google + iOs + Windows This is one of our development team’s favorite apps. It’s cross platform meaning there are desktop and mobile versions. You can take it everywhere and still use it from the comfort of your desk. It’s a great source to save your notes, recipes, etc and have them sync across your devices.

(Google + iOs) SkyGuide is an app designed to help you identify that star or planet you’re looking at in the sky. It makes really nice use of AR to help orientate you.

(Google + iOs + Windows + Browser) ToDoIst is a great productivity tool that allows you to keep up with all of your tasks and divide them into categories, projects, and subtasks. It’s also incredibly useful on multiple platforms, including mobile, Windows integration, or just a browser tab. Most of the features are free to use, but the Premium features allow you to be more creative with your lists, including reminders, labels, and integration into your email client.

Business Apps To Watch

(Google + iOs) HotSchedules is an employee scheduling app that allows employers to create schedules and communicate with their team. It allows employees to swap times or release shifts and has one-click approvals for managers.

Food Apps

(Google + iOs) How can we not suggest that you get this app if you live or work in the Research Triangle (RTP) or Charlotte markets? Also coming very soon to Orlando and Houston! MOBLZ is the only mobile vendor relationship management app, but it’s most famous for helping get food truck schedules out to people who love to eat at them.
StreetFood Finder
(Google + iOs)  This is a neat little app that allows you to find food trucks in your area.

(Google + iOs) TouchBistro is a point of sale system (POS) that many businesses use for their online ordering system.

(Google + iOs) If you travel, you probably have the Uber and Lyft apps installed on your phone. If you live or work in a metro area, you need to install DoorDash. It’s a food delivery app that connects local restaurants and customers.

Mental Health Apps

(Google + iOs) HabitMinder is designed to help you form healthy habits and keep you accountable with mini apps and session screens. It will also track hydration, encourage exercise, and more.

(Google + iOs) Calm is a tool designed to help with sleep and meditation. It helps to lower stress by guided meditation, sleep stories, and breathing exercises. Calm is our pick for their detail to design, good support, and great app flow.

(Google + iOs
Joyable provides personalized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) programs designed to help people with anxiety or depression. It’s basically mental health coaching.

(Google + iOs) Things are hard right now—get the daily support you need with the Shine app, the #1 self-care app created by women of color. With the Shine app, make caring for your mental and emotional health a habit. Learn a new self-care strategy every day, get support from a diverse community, and access an audio library of 800+ original meditations, bedtime stories, and calming sounds to help you shift your mindset or mood.
An app is not a substitute for proper mental care. The mind is an organ. Just like you do cardio to help your heart, you need to take care of your mind.  If you feel depressed and overwelmed, the Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 800-273-8255.

Miscellaneous Apps

(Google + iOs Do you receive an inordinate amount of spam or robocalls?  Robokiller may be the app for you. Instead of just blocking numbers, which get changed constantly, the tool monitors and detects voice patterns from the scammers and spammers.

(Google + iOs) This app maps your dog’s walking routes. You can enter each of your dogs to track them as a pack or individually. The best part about this app is that it allows you a chance to earn support for your local animal shelter or rescue.

(Google + iOs) Strava is a fitness tracking app that can record your favorite routes, map a local bike trail, and analyze your training stats. It’s also a social site, meaning you can share your routes with friends and compare notes.

(Google + iOs) Shazam is a cool app that allows your device to recognize a song that is playing and let you know the name and artist. It will also allow you to play the song on Spotify or other services. You can even buy the track from Google Play Store.

Our Final Suggestion

It seems everyone is streaming shows and music continuously. People are binge watching NetFlix for six or more hours per day! We tech people are used to working on computer screens and even invest in special blue-blocker glasses to cut down on glare. Most of our readers aren’t in that category and haven’t been conditioned for that much screen time. As a tech company, this may sound counterintuitive to say, but head to your closet and find a board game and play it with a family member. If you live alone, get a deck of cards and play Solitaire out on your porch WITHOUT a computer screen. Pace yourself and remember you have neighbors and family members that need your attention too.
