Flipboard isn’t a new app — it launched about five years ago. However, this app has really grown in popularity as its developers have taken aim to increase its usability and function. Between Twitter, Facebook, and a million news channels, it can become very daunting to keep up with news and new content. The whole point of Flipboard is the ability to gather news in one spot. Flipboard caters what you see based on your interests, which makes it a lot easier to navigate through news stories and other content you love.


Most of you probably already love and adore Bunz, but for those of you who aren’t aware, Bunz is a beloved trading zone for Torontonians. Originally started on Facebook, you can trade almost anything and everything on Bunz with one rule: no cash transactions allowed. The other rule about Bunz is never speak about Bunz, which, unfortunately, I have just broken.

Okay so you have to pay for this one, but Google Cast is one of the coolest apps out there for TV lovers. With Google Cast you can watch or “cast” any show from your laptop or mobile device onto a TV screen. In order for this to work, you must purchase an actual Google Cast device that plugs into your TV’s HDMI outlet. The app itself is free, and once you have your Google Cast plugged in and set up, the app works like magic.

Waze isn’t a new app, but it’s definitely improved a lot since it first launched in 2013. Waze is a unique traffic app that records data based on what users are reporting. For example, this app will take into account travel times that other users have taken in order to predict travel times for future users. Users can also report traffic jams, accidents, and other road blockages. Another perk: Waze can also tell you where the cheapest gas station is.
