AllTrails is a handy guide for adventurers looking for running, hiking, and biking trails. It offers details about the trails — more than 100,000 all over the world! — including difficulty level, elevation, and length, according to Redditor Wookiepuke. App users can also post pictures of trails and leave comments and reviews for other users. And, yes, it tells you if the trails are dog or kid-friendly, too.

Khan Academy is a nonprofit organization that provides free online educational tools to help students learn. Being a “student” doesn’t mean you have to be in school, however. In this case, being a student just means you have something you’d like to learn more about. The app, suggested by Redditor Colgate_and_OJ, has information and learning tools on a variety of subjects, from art history to astronomy, at multiple learning levels.

Mealime is a recipe app that, as Redditor theblartist states in their post, lets the user enter information about their tastes and diet goals before recommending recipes that correspond to said information. Thanks to its ability to streamline recipes to a user’s preferences, the app should save plenty of time on deciding what to eat.

How many times have you been trying to watch something on TV but the sound is either muted, or background noise makes it impossible to hear? Tunity allows users to simply scan the TV screen, and the app streams the TV audio straight to your device so you can listen with headphones. Redditor mike-mag adds that it’s ideal in loud, crowded bars where maybe instead of chatting it up with the guy next to you who won’t stop talking, you’re actually trying to watch the game.

Libby, recommended by Redditor awkwardlyonfire, essentially functions as an e-library. As long as you have a library card, you can access and borrow your library’s collection of ebooks and audio books for free. The app allows you to link your library card and then browse your local library’s collection. Simply download a book if you want to read it. All of your “loans” are automatically returned on their due dates. No late fees! It’s the library without having to actually get up and go there. Perfect for global-pandemic-like conditions.
