Apps every SB needs:
•PayPal/PayPal here- here is a free card scanner that they will send you. I use my paypal for nannying so it’s a “business” account but if I ask for something and daddy doesn’t have cash or PayPal I can take plastic this way lol also, PayPal has a card that they can send you where your $ can actually be used off.
•Venmo- I really use this more with my friends than with SDs BUT this is an easy way to request cab $ or whatever and you can set it to private. Huge perk is customizable profile so you don’t have to use your real name. Also, this dumps into any account you want to add and doesn’t have any fees.
•Cash- this one I’ve only used once but it is also customizable so you can use a fake name and everything else. This one is for people who don’t want to download an app, they can pay online with a link through here.
•Google Wallet- hooks up to your e-mail (see: fake Sugar e-mail) and also gives you a card. This is another money transfer app that I like because if it’s using your sugar e-mail everything should be locked down and private and because having a card is nifty. This is the card I use to pay for flights that I’ve sent SDs through Google flights.
•Google Hangouts/Google Voice- you have to have google voice but hangouts allows you to send/receive pictures which is huge. You can also choose your area code with this which makes it a more “real” number than most other apps I’ve seen.
•SA- because while it’s salty as hell sometimes you find a good one, and it’s always good to stay online.
•Airbnb- I love this for when I’m traveling to be with my SDs, hanging out with friends, or in between travels. It’s also amazing because you can find last-minute rooms reasonably which is important if something goes awry with an SD/POT. I never would stay with an SD here and use these as my places to decompress that they don’t know about. & they’re usually super homey.
•Hotel Tonight- for when you’re traveling with your SD or for when you/your SD just can’t wait to get home. Last minute hotels as opposed to Airbnbs.
•Truecaller- search anyone’s number to see if they’re a real person/who they say they are! There are better sites for this but Truecaller ain’t bad.
Feel free to let me know if there are any that I need to add. I know I just reblogged some info about PayPal/Venmo/Google Wallet & SW that’s really helpful and important so check that out too.
