I came across this one a few days ago. It’s a “social savings” app called Reach. You can invite a small (or large) circle of people, set a shared goal, and begin to auto-save towards it while tracking each other’s progress. Asides from the shared goal VP, I imagine it’s a great way to use peer pressure to force people to save. If I know that my “friends” can see my progress, I’m a lot less likely to be frivolous. The app’s still in beta, but do check it out when you have the time (I really mean right now).
Support them on Kickstarter, too.

As far as I can recall, I’ve owned seven phones in the last nine years, four of which forcefully ended up with people who needed them more than I did. Out of the remaining three, I recall handing one down to a younger sibling and disposing another in a waste bag during spring cleaning. I haven’t given much thought to where my current phone will end up when it no longer serves its purpose. Until now.
