Here are 5 things you should know.
1. There is a free library app that lets you borrow e-books and audiobooks.
It’s called Overdrive. After downloading it, you need to choose your library and enter your library card information (Step 1: get a library card). Any e-book or audiobook your library has on file, you can borrow for free. The app is a little clunky, but hey, free books!
2. There is an app that makes contacting your government representatives, voting on legislation and signing petitions incredibly simple.
It’s called Countable and it’s so easy to use. This screenshot includes an example. It’s a very simple interface and it gives you thorough details on what happens if you support or oppose each action.
3. Verizon Wireless will start offering unlimited data again, the first time since 2011, starting on Monday the 13th.
If you are on a grandfathered unlimited plan now is the time to finally get a new number or pay next to nothing, in comparison, for your next phone.
