Do you like to ensure that your time is used effectively and not wasted? While waiting for a bus or for someone, do you use your mobile phone to keep yourself occupied? Do you enjoy getting inspiration from social media?
Last week, we started a blog series on “5 Mobile Apps I Cannot Live Without” and I shared my thoughts on the mobile apps that are very important to me. Today, Sam, our content lead, is going to share with us the love-hate relationship she has with her mobile phone and the top 5 mobile apps she uses to keep herself entertained while being on the go.
The mobile phone – I have a love/hate relationship with it.
When you’re lost on a deserted part of the island void of people (which is increasingly rare these days) and you’re trying to find your way home, the mobile phone is a godsend.
When you’re waiting on an important text from someone who takes forever to reply you, the mobile phone never leaves your sight.
When you receive a call or a text you don’t want to entertain but you know you must, the mobile phone is a pain in the butt.
The mobile phone is convenient and I love it! The mobile phone is convenient and I hate it.
Here are my top 5 apps in no particular order:
I think this app doesn’t require much introduction.
Free text messaging, funny and rude emojis! What’s not to love?
The Pinterest app is great for collecting ideas and inspirations on an aesthetically pleasing pinboard.
I use it to get inspired by other people’s stuff. I like to follow health and fitness boards, see the insanely sculpted abs on those of other women, feel bad about my body for about 5 seconds and then proceed to chomp down on my cheeseburger guilt-free.
I like viewing Youtube on my phone even when I have access to it on my laptop. Viewing movies on a smaller screen sounds ridiculous, but its comforting somehow to me :p
I use it sometimes to learn things on the go – things like cracking open a coconut.
Spotify is a great music app that has pretty decent playlists created by the community.
I listen to Spotify on my daily commutes and I pretty much can’t live without it. As a suggestion though, Spotify should come with a feature that reminds you not to leave you earphones at home.
The most frustrating game in the universe. Curse whoever introduced it to me! I spent an hour and a half of my life trying to get a score higher than my friend. But it was time well-spent, because I beat her (for a whole day).
I keep it on my phone for nostalgic reasons.
That’s all we have from Sam. Stay tuned for more posts on “5 Mobile Apps I Cannot Live Without” featuring my colleagues and their Must-Have mobile apps!
