Hello, 2012, and welcome to even more tech-savvy ways to make your life easier. If you are like me, your cell phone has become more than just your passageway to communication and may as well be surgically attached to your hand. Here are three different apps you need to check out to stay ahead of the times and make your busy college life easier.
Kinek is an established alternate delivery service that offers secure retail locations for students to have packages shipped to from any retail store, website, or individual in the word. Simply download the iPhone app (there are no monthly or sign-up fees), and then choose a KinekPoint location (more than 1,300 retail partners across the United States), to have items shipped to during the checkout process. When the package is delivered to the KinekPoint, it is then stored in a secure location. The student is notified via text message, email, or Smartphone app notification and can retrieve the package and pick up other items from the KinekPoint all in the same visit.

Ever been chatting up a new flame at a party and find yourself wondering about your future and your true compatibility? There is a new and tech-savvy way to connect and find how compatible you are with everyone you meet. The Moonit Social iPhone app is free and offers valuable insights into your romantic relationships. Users can view their percentage compatibility and a short, entertaining paragraph of tangible advice on what to appreciate, what to look out for, and what to work on for that particular pairing. After receiving relationship compatibility results, users can continue the dialogue by chatting with each other using the messaging functionality right inside the app, and make plans to meet up in person. It is wonderful for romance, friendship, and business relationships.

Facebook is great for many things, but creating an invitation list in not one of them. It’s actually incredibly labor intensive; you have to literally look through your friends/fans and choose people one at a time. Obviously, this doesn’t work for a party planner who’s trying to invite a couple thousand people to a special event or a Greek event organizer trying to do the same. With the new Usher app, an event organizer can select Facebook friends by category (sex, age, location) and send them an invitation. Then they can issue secure tickets that attendees can receive on their iPhone. The day/night of the event, attendees simply show their ticket on their iPhone to the gatekeeper. As attendees check in, the promoter can see the real-time check-ins on his/her Usher app. So, from the moment you invite a guest to an event until they check in at that door, you can track and manage everything with Usher. It’s the first really efficient way to tap into your Facebook fan base for events.
