5 must-have apps for Cuban expats

Phones make our lives easier, no doubt about it! Keeping in touch with your family and friends, finding a restaurant, greeting in a foreign language, keeping track of your expenses are only some of the benefits the phone apps have to offer… And the number of mobile apps is growing rapidly; according to statistics, the App store boasts close to 2 million of these apps while Google play has over 2.2 million apps. However, with such a large number of applications available for your phone, it can become difficult to find those golden ones that will improve your life abroad.

The last thing you want when moving to a foreign land is to get sick. But that’s likely to happen. It could be a change in diet, different minerals in the drinking water, or simply a “local” disease that your body hasn’t developed an immunity to. Doctoralia removes a bit that worry by letting you search nearby health facilities. It allows you to build a list of favorites, and in some cases, even book appointments.
It works in 21 countries, including all of North America, most of Western Europe, and most of South America.

After using all your life mostly Spanish, getting familiar to a new language may be a challenge.
With Duolingo you can learn English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Irish, Danish, Swedish, Russian, Ukrainian, Esperanto, Polish, and Turkish. The app improves your speaking, reading, listening, and writing skills using real-life situations as the basis for teaching.

The best part about this app is that it offers a map of most major cities for offline access. While the memory requirements are large, the fact that you don’t need to chase Wi-Fi or pay tons of money for data is a huge benefit Citymaps2Go takes pride in.

Let’s face it, expenses are always a concern, no matter how much money you make. From monitoring spending habits in specific spending categories to tracking goal savings progress, Mint helps you be more aware of how much you are spending and maybe save the money you spend on things you don’t really need.
