All About Apps Summer 2019


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.

Be sure to check these out!



USPS Mobile United States Postal Service: As the world becomes more and more digital, brick mortar stores seem to be disappearing by the month.  We now rely on online retailers for many items, and these items must be shipped.  If your next online purchase is on the way and arriving via the US Postal Service and you want to track it, the USPS Mobile app is the quickest and easiest way to do it.  Just type in the tracking number and you will know everything about your incoming package.

ESPN+: If you are a big sports fan with a busy life and do not have time to sit in the living room and watch your favorite teams on your TV, ESPN+ can stream thousands of live events to several devices not just iPhone and Android devices.  And of course, it keeps you up to update on all the scores from all the games.

ColorSnap Visualizer: Are you considering painting your house or maybe just a room that could use a brand new coat of paint?  Sherwin-Williams is ready to help with this with ColorSnap Visualizer.  With its Instant Paint Tool you can see how 1,500 different colors could look on your walls using augmented reality. With “Match a Photo or Pin” just tap a photo and drag to find the desired color.  The “Paint Calculator” allows you enter the dimensions of the area you wish to paint and the app will estimate how much paint you will need for the project.

Fandango Movie Tickets & Times: This is the number one movie ticketing app available.  You can select tickets from your favorite theaters, get access to Rotten Tomatoes reviews, and check out new movie trailers.  You can rate and review movies and share it with other Fandango users through Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.

Snaptee | Print, Design,  Clothing: Ever wanted to design your own T Shirts to fit your personality and style?  Snaptee is the answer.  If you snap your design this app will print it and send it to you.  Fun tools can add to your designs. The Snaptee community allows you to design, shop, and sell your unique tees just using the app.
