This time of year can be pretty hectic and difficult to get through. Sure there’s holiday cheer and the shared happiness of friends and family, but getting it all to work – gifts, travel plans, etc – can be a real chore when you’re having to balance the added work load on top of the usual amount of work that only gets worse as the end of year comes around. Luckily, there are a few apps that can make your holiday that much easier.
A lot of people find themselves traveling during the holidays and unfortunately, travel plans don’t always pan out. You never know when Uncle Joey’s truck is going to breakdown or when you may need to take a last minute flight instead of the holiday road trip you had planned. That’s where Hail A Cab comes in.
It’s a free app by Yellow Cab that can help you locate taxis in real time, help you hail the closest one, track its location to know exactly how long you have to wait, and even schedule future pick-ups.
The holidays almost always result in a mess, which is where Handybook becomes a godsend. All you have to do is input your zip code and a preferred time to have a vetted professional handyman come by and clean up for you or even make DIY repairs. Everything from tree removal to furniture assembly is offered.
This wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t bring you a useful shopping app to help you get through the holidays. Fancy is a shopping app that offers same day hand-delivery in over 60 major cities. It’s free, available on all devices and is extremely helpful when it comes to last minute shopping decision.
These are just a few of the apps that can make your holidays a lot easier this year. Browse through your phone or tablet’s app store to see what holiday-saving apps are waiting to save you.
