Apps to Aid Hurricane Sandy Relief

Hurricane Sandy Relief Apps Podcast Coming Soon!

Here at Dailyappshow we are beside ourselves as we watch what has happened on the east coast of the United States due to Hurricane Sandy. Being on the other side of the United States we feel a bit helpless in situations like this. As I was thinking about all that has happened as I tried to fall asleep last night I thought to myself, apps could help in so many ways. I wonder if people are even thinking about this? When you are going through a devistation, an app might not be the first thing you think of. The truth is that there are many great apps out there that can help people through this. Just on the top of my mind are navigation, list making, survival tips, relaxation and so many more apps that could help people in certain situations.

In photos I saw online of people who were evacuated to somewhere safe, I saw people on their phones and tablets playing games and watching movies. You can count on the fact that people made it out with their smart phones and tablets. In their down time they may be searching for apps to help them out with certain things and you can bet their loved ones are searching for things that can help them too.

Below is an ongoing list of apps and their categories that can help during this time. We will do our best to add to this list and keep it up to date over the next few weeks. If a developer offers their app for free, we will make sure to list it in bold.

This list will be updated periodically, so check back as the list will grow quickly.

Our prayers and best wishes go out to those effected by Hurricane Sandy.
