    "Google Maps is a must if you are going out and exploring the town/city. It's great for finding nearby places to eat or shop and great for finding how to get there as well."

    "I use this app every single day to plan out what I'm going to be doing later on in the week. For instance. I won't plan a fishing trip if this app is showing me that bad weather is on the horizon that would make the trip kind of miserable. Instead, I will switch the days around to take advantage of the weather I want. It's nice to have a weather forecast at my fingertips. The accuracy is very good as well!"

    "Just like you, I LOVE being super enraged when trying to listen to music. The problem with today's music is it's too relaxing. That's where Spotify comes in. With its barely navigable features, spotty streaming, and random acts of skipping songs you too can feel that deep seated rage of why won't this thing just work! "

    "This app is not what I was looking for. I was hoping for something to help me discover new places when I go out on the town. App works well, but not what I wanted. "

    "I was hoping this app would help me with my social anxiety but unfortunately it didn't really. The meditations were usefull after I was home to relax some but it didn't diminish the anxiety I felt while I was out."

    "I like that it tells me how far I ran and how many calories I have burned. I follow my friend's and we see each other's activities. I like to see my friend's activities because we help each other out. It is a lot of fun. "

    #7Weather Timeline

    Weather Timeline
    This is a simple weather app that focuses on summarising the next hour, the next 48 hours and the next week so you don't have to. Graphs, animated radar maps, extended forecasts, and even almanac data are all available here, so it's gorgeous and powerful at the same time.
