We all enjoy apps that help us in our everyday life.

We found a handful that you might be interested in adding to your collection.

Groupon: Groupon is a service that allows customers to save money through the use of virtual coupons. You can find deals on almost anything – from beauty and spas, health and fitness, to dining!

Zombies, Run!: Run in the Real World. Become a Hero in Another. Only a few have survived the zombie epidemic. You enter the game as Runner 5, one of humanity’s last hopes, en-route to one of the last remaining outposts. They need your help to gather supplies, rescue survivors, and defend their home. This is an app unlike any other. Complete dangerous missions, scout out supplies, and dodge zombies – all on your daily run! This app is available through the Apple App Store and on Google Play!

Poolsuite FM: While it is not the official start of the summer, the temperatures are rising. Poolside FM was conceived one awfully rainy summer in the Highlands of Scotland – a virtual vacation, if you will. Poolsuite FM is the ultra-summer music player, transporting you to a virtual vacation where the sun never sets. Grab another Banana Daiquiri and pick from a number of sun-drenched music channels, each lovingly curated with the sole purpose of lifting your spirits. This app is available only on the App Store for iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
