So here is a list of five really cool apps you didn’t know you needed but will absolutely love.

1. Zombies Run!

We’ve all imagined ourselves as the ultimate survivor in the event of a zombie apocalypse. Well, this app will test exactly how long you would last should the flesh-eating living dead overrun the planet. Use this app to make your morning jog a little bit more and add some impetus to go that extra mile a little bit faster. How it works is really simple: plug in your earphones, launch the app, follow your mission instructions and outrun zombies while earning supplies.

2. Drunk Locker

You know that feeling of regret when you wake up in the morning and see your call log after a night out on the town? Drunk texting is embarrassing and you should be able to protect yourself from your intoxicated self. Drunk Locker allows you to restrict access to your social media profiles, email, and other messaging apps to prevent you from posting that unflattering selfie or calling your ex until you are in a position to make better decisions.

3. Duolingo

4. Photomath

Most times maths gets the better of us or maybe you know a student who is having a hard time with the subject. The Photomath app solves simple to complex maths problems for you. All you have to do is take a picture of the problem and it will solve the problem and give you an answer.
