Women in the tech world are doing some pretty amazing things. From apps that can help you delay a text to apps that help teens manage stress, women are creating great apps that can have a positive impact in your life.

Here are some great apps that were created by some amazing women:

On Second Thought:

On Second Thought is an app that can help delay those pesky texts you might regret sending in very early hours of the morning. The app also helps when autocorrect changes your message without you realizing. On Second Thought was co-founded by Maci Peterson, who helped create technology that allows you to delay messages for up to 60 seconds. In those 60 seconds, you have the option to change your mind and recall the message. There is also a curfew feature that will hold those texts you might send while inebriated.

According to the app’s website, “We’ve all sent messages we desperately wished to take back. That’s why we started On Second Thought, and why we’re passionate to make sure the chance to fix embarrassing mistakes is standard on every phone and in every app. Over 80 percent of texting Americans use messaging in a professional capacity. Companies are making it easier to send money, confirm an order, or contact customer service via text. With more at stake in our messaging ecosystem, we want to update the user experience to match the new demands we’re putting on the medium.”

On Second Thought is free for download and available on Android devices.

Hey! Vina:

Hey! Vina is the Tinder for finding new friends. Olivia Poole, the founder of Hey! Vina, created the app in order to build a community of women who make each other feel supported and happy anywhere in the world. Poole told TechCrunch, “Our goal is to help people find sisterhood and connection and helping them go through life. We want people to see that they have allies and have backup when they share their stories and a shared connection in their experiences.”

Hey! Vina can be especially helpful for anyone moving to a new city who might need some help finding new girl friends to rely on. According to the app’s description, “You can tap into wherever you are in the world (or in your life!) to meet new friends when you travel, move to a new city, transition life phases, or simply want to grow your social circle.”

Hey! Vina is free for download and available on iOS and Android devices.

Safe & Sound:

Safe & Sound was created by five teenagers – Chloe Westphal, Marina Stepanov, Stephanie Lopez, Genesis Saucedo, and Amanda Arellano – to help other teens manage and deal with the stress of their everyday lives. They also created the app to help teens who are dealing with depression. Their hope is that by creating a place for teens to go when they need to talk and be heard, they can reduce the number of shootings that happen in schools.

According to the app’s description, “Safe & Sound is a way for teens to manage the symptoms of stress, anxiety or depression to prevent any negative actions on others or themselves. The app provides teens with several tools to use including daily stress and motivation, S.A.D. 101, and other resources and hotlines teens might need.”

Safe & Sound is free for download and available on Android devices.

Use any one of these apps to support women in tech and their fantastic innovations!
