6 Apps Every Foreign-Educated Healthcare Professional Should Have

In this day and age, we have virtually everything at our fingertips. We can make calls, text our friends, and even see each other face-to-face if we want with the help of an app like FaceTime! We can also find coupons and cheaper gas, as well as where there are events happening in our city and what the quickest way to get home is.

If you’re a foreign-educated healthcare professional who is new to the U.S., here are the best apps for you to have on your smartphone. You’ll be glad you downloaded them!

1. Waze

If you’re trying to get home from work and don’t want to sit in traffic, this is the app for you. Waze analyzes different routes available and finds the quickest way home for you. The best part? The app is free and so much better than Apple Maps.

2. Whatsapp

This is a great (and free!) app that you can use to make phone calls and text your friends who are overseas. Say goodbye to expensive rates for overseas calling. You can now message and talk to all of your close friends and family members without having to pay a fortune.

3. Coupon Sherpa

Looking to save some money on groceries or a shopping trip out with your friends? If you want to go to the store to buy some new clothes or a pair of shoes, check out this app first, where you can find a ton of coupons for your favorite shops. You can also find great deals on restaurants!

4. Gas Buddy

Once you move to the U.S., you’ll have to get yourself a vehicle so that you can get to and from work. This can be very exciting! However, you’ll also become responsible for having to put in gas to keep that car running. This app can help you find the nearest gas station with the best price! You’ll never have to overpay for fuel again.

5. Skype

Texting and calling are great ways to stay in contact with friends and family, but what if you want to see them face-to-face? Download Skype and you’ll be able to use the app to video call each other for free! You can also use FaceTime, but if you don’t have an iPhone, Skype works just as well.

6. Uber

Want to go out with your friends but don’t feel like driving? You can just order an Uber! With this app, you can order an affordable car ride to your destination, and someone will come pick you up in a clean car and get you from point A to B. You can ride by yourself, with others in a carpool, or jump in with your friends and all ride together instead of taking a taxi (which can be much more expensive).
