Age: 25 Lo­ca­tion: Los Angeles, Cal­i­for­nia One-Line Bio: Alma is a copy ed­i­tor for bal­lot­pe­dia.org, a po­lit­i­cal en­cy­clo­pe­dia used by jour­nal­ists and ev­ery­day vot­ers. She also sings and writes mu­sic, which you can lis­ten to at hearalma.com.

Lyft: Ev­ery­one asks how I sur­vive in LA with­out a car— and the an­swer is Lyft. To save money, I usu­ally use the car­pool fea­ture.

Snapseed: This app makes photo edit­ing a breeze! My In­sta­gram feed be­came so much more beau­ti­ful once I started us­ing it.

Acorns: Wish you were bet­ter at sav­ing money? This app rounds up each pur­chase I make to the near­est dol­lar and in­vests the change.

Pod­casts: I'm ob­sessed with knowl­edge! The Pod­casts app gives me my fix of sub­jects like eco­nom­ics (EconTalk), phi­los­o­phy (Sam Har­ris), and the­ol­ogy (The Li­tur­gists).

Venmo: All my fel­low free­lancers rely heav­ily on Venmo. I use it to make quick and easy pay­ments to band mem­bers, pho­tog­ra­phers, videog­ra­phers, etc.

Voice Memos: You never know when artis­tic in­spi­ra­tion will strike! The Voice Memos app cap­tures my song­writ­ing ideas as soon as they hit me.

Slack: My co­work­ers at Bal­lot­pe­dia are lo­cated all around the coun­try, but Slack helps us stay in touch by al­low­ing us to send quick mes­sages to in­di­vid­u­als or teams.

Crowd­fire: So­cial me­dia man­age­ment is made easy with this app. Ev­ery day Crowd­fire pre­scribes ac­tions I can take to grow my on­line pres­ence—and then it helps me ex­e­cute them.

Sleep Time: I've been mon­i­tor­ing my sleep for years with this app. I love the am­bi­ent sounds, and it helps me make sure I'm get­ting eight hours of sleep each night.
