“I don’t have any cash on me.”
“I only have twenties.”
“I’ll pay next time.”
How many times have you said those words to your friends, or had them said to you? Let’s face it – with no urgent need to keep cash on you anymore, it’s getting harder and harder to fairly split checks, cabs, tabs, bills, etc. That’s where Venmo comes in.
Venmo is a FREE app that allows you to pay your friends back instantly and safely – from your bank account to theirs, and vice versa. Just select a friend, choose an amount, send a message (optional), and hit send payment. I don’t know how I didn’t learn about this app until recently, but I won’t go another day without it. I intend on approaching my landlord about using Venmo for my rent payments too!
Venmo is now available on iPhone, Android and Blackberry phones. How do you use Venmo? Tell us what you think!

Let’s be honest, saving money is hard! We’re young and we want to have fun (and it usually costs us money). It might seem too early to start seriously saving your money, but the earlier you start the easier it gets – and the more you’ll save. I came across this app called Impulse Save that lets you save your money right from your phone – how cool is that? What I find to be really great about this app is that you can also use it from your computer. Here’s the simple breakdown – you create an account and securely link your checking account. Then, you can create your saving goals and set the amount you want save each week, and then it will tell you how long it will take until your goal is reached. It’s super easy and extremely practical for all college students. It’s easy to spend your money, so why not let it be easy to save too!
Available on both iOS and Android.

You’ve probably checked into a location, but have you ever checked into a TV show? With Viggle, you can do just that. It’s a free app that gives TV-watchers rewards for checking into the shows they’re watching. Viggle automatically identifies (in a way reminiscent of the Shazam app) the television shows its users are tuned into and awards them points once they’ve checked in. Points can be redeemed via the app’s rewards catalogue for tons of different items, including gift cards and movie tickets. Feeling generous? Points can also be converted into donations to charity. Now THAT is cool.
What’s even more fun about the app is that users are encouraged to play along live. Answer trivia, see what others are Tweeting, and vote in polls. If you’re already watching the show, you might as well get points – right?
