Hot apps: Discover the top trending apps on campus

It’s no secret that most of us spend half of our day on our phones, and can you blame us? With all of the amazing technology off ered to us at just a click of a button, it seems that our phones have become our extra limbs. So, of course, DIG is going to give you the scoop on the hottest apps being used on campus right now. With these apps, you won’t be able to take your eyes off your phone.

Bumble: This app has everyone buzzing around campus. Similar to Tinder, this app is a social media dating app that allows you to connect with other singles in an unintimidating way. What makes this app much different than Tinder is the fact that the ball is in the female’s court. Yup, you heard us right. While both genders can swipe right to connect, the female has to initiate the conversation ultimately for the guy to have a chance to message her.

7 Minute Workout Challenge: With Spring Break a few weeks away there’s no wonder why this app is trending. 7 Minute Workout Challenge will have your body in beach body shape in no time. Some of the cool features this app offers are full audio, video, image and text instruction for every exercise routine, ways to track your activity and even charts that monitor your progress. It’s like having your very own personal trainer from the comfort of your home and at a very affordable price of $2.99 in the App Store.

OfferUp: As a college student, you’re either always looking for a deal or trying to get extra cash, and that’s exactly why this app is trending. OfferUp allows users to buy and sell items to other users who are nearby. This app is a perfect way to make money on those old shoes, clothes and bags that you no longer wear. It is also perfect for finding those items you wish to have at a bargain price. It’s basically an online consignment shop, and we’re here for it.

Waze: Never wonder about traffic or getting a ticket again. Waze is the lifesaver we’ve all prayed for. We all know how terrible Baton Rouge traffic can be at times. Without a moment’s notice traffic can go from very light to very heavy, leaving you in standstill traffic for what seems like hours. Well, fear no more, this trending app gives users all the information they need when it comes to traveling. The app offers GPS navigation, live traffic alerts and even live police detection. Never be clueless again.

Photoshop Fix: While we know you’re beautiful just the way you are, if you are looking to get rid of that stubborn pimple or that horrible tan line, Photoshop Fix may be the perfect app for you. This app allows users to change almost anything about their photo and of course, it definitely comes in handy when it’s time to post to Instagram. Now you really can be flawless.

Airbnb: This app is perfect for your upcoming Spring Break trip. Airbnb is an app much like any hotel app. The app allows you to select locations, dates and certain criteria that match with your situation. Whether you’re looking for a shared room on your stay or looking to rent an entire home to fit you and all 10 of your friends, Airbnb is definitely the place you will want to start. Not only does the app offer amazingly rad places to spend your vacay, but also at a price that beats expensive hotel rooms. With all the great benefits of Airbnb, no wonder this app is trending on campus.

SoundCloud: We’ve all heard of the site SoundCloud, but did you know there was an app? Yup, SoundCloud has made its way right into the palm of your hand. Listen to all of your favorite new jams and even upload your own songs using the easy user-friendly app. Oh, and did we mention the app is free? So no fees to listen to what you want when you want.

Snapchat: Still causing such a frenzy in the social media world, this video/photo app needs little explanation. If you aren’t already snapping, you aren’t living. With all of the new face features offered through the app it has become one of college student’s favorite pastimes.
