Think Dirty – If you follow me on Instagram, you have seen me talk about Think Dirty on many occasions. Think Dirty allows you to scan the bar code of your cosmetics and other personal care products to determine if they contain toxic ingredients. I am so in love with this app that I don’t purchase a product without checking Think Dirty first. We know that new products are being released on a daily basis, so everything I scan doesn’t pop up in the app. However, I have learned so much from Think Dirty that I can now say that I am a more confident and conscious cosmetic shopper.
Non-GMO Project Shopping Guide – The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization that is committed to protecting a food supply that does not contain genetically modified organisms (GMO). Similar to Think Dirty, this app allows you to type in food brands to determine if the product contains GMO ingredients. You can also use the app to locate retailers in your area that sell non-GMO items. Additionally, the app also includes tips for how you can avoid GMOs, including a list of GMO crops and common ingredients at risk for GMO contamination. Make sure your phone is always charged when you go to the grocery store because this app is super helpful.
EWG’s Food Scores – EWG’s Food Scores is a database designed to help consumers make healthier, more eco-friendly food choices. Each food item has a rating of 1-10 based on nutrition concerns, ingredient concerns, and processing concerns. When I first started using this app, I was SHOCKED to learn how many organic and non-GMO brands were still considered bad for you and bad for the environment. If you are focused on consuming sustainable, healthy food, then this app is a must-have.

Every Dollar – Similar to Mint , Every Dollar is a budget tool to help you get out of debt and save money. I prefer Every Dollar over Mint because it is based on the Dave Ramsey plan. His plan is biblically based and has built in milestones that help you stay encouraged as you work toward your financial goals. Plus, I am a visual learner so I find Every Dollar to be more user-friendly and easier to understand.
Clue – I have never been one for period tracking apps until I discovered Clue. I am very in tune with my body but this app is awesome for planning a vacation around that time of the month. Based on factors such as sleep, exercise, energy, cravings, moods, pain, and other categories, Clue predicts the dates for your next period, PMS and the days you are more or less likely to get pregnant. In my experience, this app has been pretty darn accurate. I would especially recommend this app to someone who is considering going off the pill, or for someone who is trying to conceive.
Verses – Verses helps you memorize Bible scriptures through games. Example – it will scramble a Bible verse, and you have to unscramble/re-order it. It also has games similar to “fill in the blank” where part of the Bible verse is displayed and you have to enter the remaining words. Verses is based on adaptive learning, meaning that difficulty increases based on your progress. The only downside to this app is that the KJV version is the only free translation.
She Reads Truth – The Bible will always be my #1 go to resource for spiritual growth. However, She Reads Truth has some really good devotionals. There are lots of shareable images, downloadable scripture lock screens for your phone (which helps with scripture memorization), and customizable notifications that will remind you when to read your devotional throughout the day. This app is perfect for any woman on the go that is struggling to find balance throughout the day. There is also a He Reads Truth app as well.
