There are literally hundreds of new must have apps which are released every day. Many of these apps fall to the wayside or aren’t relevant to a millennials unique taste. While SnapChat, Facebook, and Instagram have become everyday staples – like a hammer in a toolbox, there are lesser known apps which you should consider if you’re a millennial looking for an edge in today’s competitive market.
Here are the top 10 useful must have apps every millennial should consider.
