    "Evernote is an app for recording notes, texts, etc. and it offers so much more than the official note taking apps that come with the iPhone. In Evernote, you can record your voice, create memos and just generally record events, etc. much better. Evernote is a fantastic note taling and recording app. "

    "Khan Academy has one of the ugliest websites that I have ever seen. With that said, it is effective. They offer quizzes and lessons on so many subjects that it's a great resource for educators as well as lifelong learners. While the site is not attractive, it is relatively intuitive and absolutely useful."

    "As an independent music player, Spotify is more than capable versus the other official one, such as Apple iTunes. It lets you listen to music and discover related artists and songs, which is great when you’re driving and you should have minimal interaction with your phone. You can listen to the songs you like with some advertisement in between, or sign up for the premium membership and listen to songs ad free. One downside is that some artists, such as Taylor Swift and Coldplay, have boycotted streaming on Spotify, so if they are your favorite artists, you’re out of luck. "
