Useful Free Apps That Every Franklin Student Needs

Ciao amici!  I’m not here to tell you to download Spotify, the FUS App,  or the SBB App. While those are especially useful, they’re also obvious. Before I begin, some other obvious and necessary apps are Whatsapp (a messaging app primarily used everywhere but in the USA) and the Covid Certification App (Swiss QR code is valid in EU countries as well).
