Welcome to the Not Just a Mom Link Up hosted by myself, Adrienne, Jen, Joanne, Lauren, and Sarah! This month, we are talking about our favorite phone apps! I have an iPhone XR which I love, and use a ton, of course. I took a look at my apps and see I have a lot I should probably delete, and there are those that I use all the time, which are obviously my favorites. I look forward to hearing about yours!
I should probably organize my apps differently! You can see all of my unused apps at the moment with the cloud icons on them. The other day I realized that YouTube was even like that! My first page is basically messaging apps and social media. I suppose I should move all of my most used apps to the first page…but the truth is I’m used to them the way they are!
My second page is where I had added a few folders and tried to organize. But I haven’t updated it in awhile. This is where I have games, but also Goodreads? I am now inspired to reorganize… I also have some lesser used useful apps on there like my UPS tracker, my library app, Venmo, and Lightroom, which I use to edit all my Instagram photos.
Page 3: even more apps that I should remove, plus all of my audio listening apps! The NFL app is obviously seasonal, it gives me alerts on scoring and such. I use Snapseed for editing some of the time.
Finally, page 4 with even more unused apps. A lot of them are TV channels for casting to the TV, but they’ve all gone to the cloud. Seeing Zoom in the cloud is pretty funny! I don’t normally use it on my phone.
Well, I guess I’ll be reorganizing for the next hour…somehow things always get messed up when I try to move my apps around, which is probably why I don’t do it often.
And as for my favorites, here are the apps I use the most often:
Instagram. Obviously. Cross Stitch World is my favorite game. It’s very relaxing! I play it while I listen to audio books, so I’m not sure why my audio book apps don’t show up here – probably because I use a few different ones depending what book I’m reading. Candy Crush is also a favorite game. I use the Notes app to draft my Instagram posts, which is why it’s up there. Goodreads is obviously an important one. And SB Live is a game show type game that I play for 10 minutes almost every evening, so that’s why it’s shown there as well! It’s part of Swagbucks, a point earning website, and you win points towards that.
