Download Worthy: Venmo

“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!

Download Worthy: Viggle

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?

Have you ever used Viggle? Post a comment below and tell us your favorite feature!

DIY Dorm: Customized iPhone Cases

Most iPhone cases are super cute, but who wants to drop $30 – especially when you can make your own for about $10. I found these awesome ideas that are easy and adorable! Check them out and maybe you’ll have your latest DIY project!

Studded Phone Case – Everyone knows studs are a hot trend right now, so why not carry that over to your iPhone case. All you need is an iPhone case (you can get them on Ebay for like 5 bucks!) iron on studs (look at Etsy for these), a ruler, and some super glue.

1) Measure your desired placement for the studs and draw out the lines to make sure that your studs are evenly placed

2) Once your is placement drawn out start to superglue each stud into place and let it dry overnight

3) Once it’s dry you can pop right into your phone and now you have a stylish (and cheap) new phone case!

Feather Phone Case – This super cute and trendy case only requires a clear phone case and a feather or set of feathers (you can find these at your local craft store). Make sure your feathers are flat enough that they will fit inside the case.

1) Take your feather or feathers (depending on your preference) and cut to fit inside your case

2) Lay it flat on the case and pop your phone in

3) This one is also easy to mix and match so your feather can match your outfit everyday!

Do you have any ideas for your own phone case? Post a comment and we’ll share it with our readers!
