A Mark Cuban-Backed App That’ll Unlock Your Paycheck Early + 4 More New Apps

As much as we love getting out and enjoying spring, these April showers definitely make us want to cozy up on the coach and binge on our favorite things. So while we’re lounging around at home this weekend, we thought we would catch up on a few techy chores that don’t require putting on *actual* pants — including finally updating the software on our laptops, cleaning out our inboxes, and deleting all those pesky unused apps on our phones. After you’ve accomplished the hard task of making some much-needed space on your phone (RIP Pokemon Go), here are five brand new apps to treat yourself with on your lazy April weekend.

1. JobFlare: If you’re looking for a more interesting way to search for jobs than simply browsing LinkedIn, check out this fun app. JobFlare comes with six rapid-fire games designed *specifically* to measure the key qualities that employers are looking for, including logic, math, and verbal skills. After you play a few games, job seekers are sent relevant job postings from JobFlare’s partner, ZipRecruiter, via email based on their performance results and profile. Beat your high score and win your dream job, lady!

2. Dave: You know something is legit when Shark Tank phenom Mark Cuban invests his hard-earned moola in it. This brand new app is designed to outsmart overdrafts and help you take back your paycheck. Simply connect your bank account and Dave (the adorable financially savvy hipster bear) will tell you how low your account balance will get in the next seven days. If you’re going to be in the red, Dave lets you unlock a portion of your upcoming paycheck at zero percent interest… all he asks for in return is a tip if he helped you and a dollar per month up front.

3. Zola Weddings: Planning a wedding is mega stressful… but this sweet new app makes organizing your “I do” to-do list easy. Not only does the app help you find your wedding website and select your guest list, but you can also sign up for your registry and make your own customizable checklists too.

4. Funnel: After spending the entire work day in front of a computer, the last thing we want to do is go read current events on yet another screen… no matter how much we want to stay informed. Luckily, this awesome app hosts hourly audio news summaries from outlets like BBC and NPR so you can get your daily digest of news without the eye sore.

5. Scamoji: If you haven’t heard of Joanne the Scammer yet, stop everything you’re doing and start Googling. Honestly! This hilarious suite of over 100 custom Joanne GIFs and emoji are perfect for nearly *every* occasion. Live your best life, boo.
