From life-saving apps to ones that keep us entertained and connected, we present to you the following necessary apps to help you survive this quarantine.

Tiktok comes on top of the list and as much as we all might be ashamed to admit, it turns out the app is so much fun and a great time killer, we blame it on celebrities for making us so addicted.

Also, try to include your family members in some of the videos, the results are hilarious!

House Party

House party is an app that took over the entire world in just a few weeks! It is a social media app that allows you to video-chat and play games with your friends, the closest thing you will get to hanging out with your buddies!

A bit similar to house party minus the games, Google Duo is the highest quality video calling app, It’s simple, reliable, and works on smartphones, tablets and on the web. It will help bring all your loved ones in a group chat and it is also ideal for work conference calls. 

Down Dog

Down Dog is a great application for exercising, it will get you a brand new yoga practice every time you come to your mat! Unlike other apps that pre-record videos, this one won’t make you repeat the same workout over and over again.

AND it’s free until May the 1st! We love apps that understand what we’re currently going through.

Headspace

With everything we’re going through, meditation is truly much needed to help us pass time while simultaneously managing stress. Headspace offers courses, ranging from the basics of meditation to others that help you stay positive, like “Happiness.” Or shorter ones, like “Breathe,” that encourage you to take a quick 1-3 minutes from the day to relax. Download the app and discover the rest!

For those of you watching the incredible series ‘El Ekhteyar’ and I’m sure we are a lot! Embrace yourself because the upcoming episodes will witness the final stage in the life of the great hero Mansy.

Episode 25 witnessed already the transfer of ate great Ahmed el-Mansy (Amir Karara) and his men to El-Barth village in Rafah, following several terrorists who moved there.

This has of course led Mansy and his brave men to follow their lead, to rid us of these terrorists. El-Barth was the place of their martyrdom and so we’re very near to the end so hold your tissues!

After all, the show really highlighted the dark terrorists’ principals, thoughts and ideas that are based on blood, betrayal, and opportunism.

We’re absolutely loving and enjoying every second of the series that managed in just 25 days, to remind us of the deep love we have for our beloved country and appreciate the army even more.

We’re certainly not ready to say goodbye yet but we’ll forever be thankful for the chance to follow this heroic journey.
