They say that you can tell a lot about a person by looking at their phone. So I thought why not share the mobile apps that I have on my phone now.
Quora is like Yahoo Answers but multiple times better. Described as the best source for knowledge, it’s a question-and-answer site where questions are asked, answered, edited and organized by its community of users. I find myself spending hours and hours of my time just browsing through answers to diverse range of questions on literally almost everything. A definite must have mobile app.
I’ve been a Redditor (reddit user) for 2 years now. So what is Reddit exactly? Reddit (contraction of I already read it on Reddit) is a collection of content from around the internet. It’s divided into different categories called Subreddits. You’ll find all sorts of stuff here. So you’re into Science, eh? go to AskScience subreddit. You want to know what people think when they shower? Welcome to Showerthoughts subreddit. Oh, so you fucked up at your work today? No worries, post it on TIFU or just read what kind of shit other people do.
Hate it or love it, Instagramming is a form of art and there is nothing better than a picture to tell a story. Instagram app is easy, fast and free to use.
I use Pinterest mainly to find and collect photos for future reference. It’s one of the best platform for self expression. When I’m bored, I check Pinterest, add pins and organize my boards. It’s addictive in a good way.
I’ve ditched Pandora and Deezer to use Spotify. I love the option of playing whatever the hell I want and they have all the music that I want to listen to. Best part is it’s free!
Tumblr is a microblogging and social networking site and it mostly caters to the younger crowd. If Twitter and WordPress would have a baby, it’ll be Tumblr, lol. In Tumblr, I can freely express myself without being judged by anyone and most of the stuff that I share in Facebook and Twitter are from Tumblr.
If you like buying stuff online, I highly suggest that you check out Shopee. Shopee is an online marketplace where you can buy and sell right from your mobile device. The app is very easy to navigate and it’s totally safe to shop here. When buyers make a payment, it will be sent first to Shopee and will only be released to the seller once the buyer receives the item. Transactions are covered by “Shopee Guarantee” that protects both buyers and sellers from fraudulent activities. They also offer free shipping and COD (cash payment upon delivery) on most items.
MyFitness Pal is considered one of the best calorie tracking apps on the market now. I use their app to log the food I eat and it helps me manage my calorie intake. They have a huge food directory and their app is also easy to use. Before using MyFitness Pal, I would normally consume 2,000 to 3,000 calories a day. No wonder I’ve gained so much pounds. I’ve learned that in order to lose weight, decreasing food intake is much more effective than increasing physical activity. The best thing about this app is it makes me think twice before I put food in my mouth.
Figure1 is the Instagram for healthcare professionals. Well, I am not a health care professional but through this app, doctors are able to post and share photos of medical cases which are mostly bizarre. View rare conditions, innovative treatments, and teaching cases from around the world. If you like seeing weird medical conditions, I highly suggest you get this app.
If you’re still paying for cable TV, for the love of God, cut it off, upgrade your Internet connection and switch to Netflix. Netflix has a very good collection of movies and TV series and you can access it to almost all devices like iOs, Android, Smart TVs, Streaming boxes, etc. Sure, you can torrent stuff online (which I still do sometimes) but Netflix is just more convenient and reliable. No commercials, no ads and you’ll have full control of what to watch.
Youtube is love, Youtube is life. ‘Nuff said.
If you have an app that you want me to check out, just leave a comment below.
Til Next 🙂
