Sometimes it's nice to sit in bed and go ham on Netflix, but lets not be that person that sits in their 450 square foot apartment on the regular. Fever has been the best boredom solver for me since I've been in New York. The app lists events that relate to your interest: music, art, food, exercise, fashion, party, Brooklyn, culture, etc. Separate the events going on that very day, tomorrow or later in the week. The best part is RSVPing to a party right on the app, sometimes getting free admission! Get some sunlight people.
Yea, you knew this was coming, but it's seriously a life saver. Whether you are lost in the streets of New York, don't want to deal with subways or just want to cry because you were stupid enough to wear heels...Uber is there to pick you up fast. I even used it to move all my stuff from apartment to apartment when I was switching areas. Yes, that Uber driver may have hated me, but it sure did save me money not renting a uhaul. Fun fact: the driver can rate the customer! This way, if other drivers have left bad reviews on you, guess who has to suck up those extra few blocks in heels?
I'm really not up for walking to the grocery store and getting a weight lifting work out from lugging bags back to my apartment. Oh, and then there's that cooking part. Maybe it's 9 pm and I'm still at work, not wanting to leave my desk because all hell will break loose if I do. Seamless cures the hunger or your stomach, laziness of your legs and lack of time to eat. Order anything from your phone or on the site. The satisfaction of food coming to you? Nothing greater.
I don't do confusing. I like intuitive, actually, I enjoy an app a 5 year old could navigate. When it comes to subways, most have missed a stop, got on the wrong one, or even gone to the end of a line (never get really involved in a good book on a subway). KickMap Lite is the subway map that I prefer over Embark, HubStop and Exit Strategy. The maps are easy to follow and won't have you going to Coney Island on a Thursday night.
Unfortunately, Smorgasborg doesn't happen everyday of the week. I would live in that little pack of food vendors if I could. Menu Pages finds restaurants and allows you to browse through their menu before walking in. The most handy is being able to filter results by price, distance, cuisine and popularity. I love finding new places to eat, and the reviews provide me with tips on what to eat or if it's a local place. For some reason, Yelp just isn't doing it for me anymore after Menu Pages came around.
