Thanks to technology, there is a unique mobile application to accommodate almost every aspect of life, from cooking and parenting, to dating and working out.

With the endless pool of options at our disposal, we might miss out on some special apps that are worth downloading.

Arabs have created their fair share of useful applications catering to the needs of people in the region. Here are seven Arab apps that will simplify your life:

1. Yo Neighbor (UAE)

Launched in March 2017, Yo Neighbor is a UAE-based "sharing" app that enables users to borrow items - such as camping gear and electric appliances - from each other.

Communication takes place on the in-app messaging platform, but payments are made in cash.

The app is available in the App Store and on Google Play.

2. SwitchDXB (UAE)

SwitchDXB is a health, fitness, and wellness mobile app that will inspire you to try fun and exciting activities, ultimately helping you lead a healthier life.

From soothing rooftop yoga classes to energetic HIIT sessions underwater, the app caters to people with all sorts of needs and preferences. The SwitchDXB app allows its users to book and pay for the sessions on demand.

The app is available in the App Store.

3. Altibbi

Instead of checking your symptoms online and getting a false diagnosis that makes you more anxious than you already are, try downloading this app. 

It enables you to talk to an actual doctor in just one click, skipping out on the waiting room altogether.

The app is available in the App Store and on Google Play.

4. JustClean (Kuwait)

Avoid the long queues and waste of time while waiting at a laundromat for your week-worth of dirty clothes to be cleaned and dried. 

JustClean is a Kuwait-based application that helps residents pick a convenient laundromat online that would take your laundry and return it smelling all fresh. 

The app is available in the App Store and on Google Play.

5. Kill My Routine (Lebanon)

With our fast-paced lives and daily routines, we all need a breather every once in a while, especially one that consists of trying something new.

To make the best of your weekends and days off, download Kill My Routine, an online platform that matches events with the user's interests and preferences. 

The app makes personalized recommendations based on multiple characteristics including age, personality type, and fitness level.

The app is available in the App Store and on Google Play.

6. Jaleesa (Lebanon)

Finding a reliable and trustworthy babysitter to take care of your children can be pretty challenging, but Jaleesa steps in to save the day. 

The platform helps parents and guardians in Lebanon find trained babysitters and nannies, and offers informative tips for parents. 

The app is available in the App Store.

7. Soudfa

If you've had no luck finding your match in the offline world, you might consider taking your efforts to the virtual one.

If you're interested in limiting your search to Arabs and Muslims, the Arab dating platform Soudfa is a must-try.

The app is available in the App Store and on Google Play.
