One look at the apps on a person’s phone could give you an insight into their personality and how they spend their time. I have a wide variety of apps on my devices, from games J to social media, an e-Bible, and some productivity apps. We’ve scanned the web and compiled a short list of recommended apps for the working lady.

Uber (iOS, Android) (Free)

Uber simply sells itself. This is hands down one of the most talked-about apps in recent years. Uber serves as a private driver in over 50 countries, which is amazing if you travel frequently as you don’t have to worry about flagging a ride, not having sufficient foreign currency to pay for your ride, or getting duped into overpaying for a ride. Upon setting up an account, you can request a ride within minutes and select between vehicle types from individual drivers to “black cars”. Once you’ve arrived at your destination, Uber instantly charges your credit card and emails you a receipt!

Do you use any of these apps? Which other apps would you recommend?
