"I don't think I could live without Foursquare. No matter what city or side of town I am in, I always use the app to discover new restaurants, coffee shops, and tips." —Alexis Bendjouia, editorial intern
"You have millions of to-do list apps, but none of them are powerful enough to make lists of lists. It sounds silly...until you try it. Additional features include shared lists, emails that can add more items to a list, and just general ease of use, so you spend less time managing your to-dos and have more time to do." —Siddhant Mohalanobish, platform engineer
"Shazam is hands down my all-time favorite app! Working in a creative environment, I'm constantly exposed to great music — Shazam helps to identify it. When I hear an amazing song while on set, backstage at a show, or played in an ad, I'll open up the app and it will recognize the artist, song, and album."
—Bethie Girmai, fashion assistant
"I was never a 'write it down' person. I couldn't be troubled to carry a book, a pen, or a journal with me anywhere. But, Evernote is on all my devices and it integrates photos, voice, and text memos, so it becomes my mental dump no matter where I am. I also use it to collaborate on ideas with people. My wife and I plan our vacations and home decor with inspiration notes and checklists. It's a staple for all of my R29 meeting notes, ideas, and things to remember. The UX is great, the features are useful, and it's with me everywhere." —Aziz Hasan, creative director
"I'm compulsive about writing, keeping, and crossing things off lists, and this app keeps them organized across all of my devices. You can also share lists with friends and family, so it's great for grocery shopping, wish lists, and assignments." —Julie Bogen, assistant social media editor
