Tag Archives: there’s an app for that

Mobile Apps overload?

The “There’s an App for that” claim for the iPhone makes me cringe. How many of the Apps we have in our mobile devices do we actually use?

I am not  a good exmaple to start with as I am not an early adopter of anything technical and I tend to stay away from what the crowd goes for, so any Apple device is a no go area for me. I have though not too long ago acquired an Android powered device which I really like. I have browsed the Android App store up and down and tested a number of Apps, some cool stuff but I only keep the ones I actually use.

Here is my humble short list of favourites

  • Gmail App (native to Android)
  • Peep (for Twitter)
  • Facebook (on the mobile browser)
  • Orkut (on the mobile browser)
  • Google Maps (use it a lot in conjunction with GPS)
  • Google Calendar sync (native to Android)
  • Music player (native to Android)
  • File Browser
  • gStrings (Guitar tuner)
  • Youtube (native to Android)
  • Droid Locator
  • A couple of games
  • Daily Sudoku (Embarrassing I know, but great for calming my ADHD)

How overloaded is your mobile? What are your must have Apps?
