My phone is an ultimate resource for me. Interestingly enough, the thing I do the least with my phone is actually talk on it. I don’t talk on the phone very often, but there are several apps that I use daily to keep my life together.
Wunderlist. Wunderlist is a list app. I love it because you can have shared lists, so Hubs and I can simultaneously add items to our grocery list. This is also helpful if we split up in the store because we can see as the other person checks off items. Wunderlist also syncs across devices, so I can add things from my computer and see them on my phone, and vice versa.
Google Photos. Google Photos makes the list because it automatically backs up the photos on my phone. This allows me to delete photos from my phone’s storage, but still be able to access them easily. Prior to using this backup method I had so many photos on my phone I had to delete photos to be able to take new ones. Google Photos also has an Assistant function that reminds you to back up photos, automatically creates collages from similar photos, and shows you the photos you took a year ago on the current date.
Kindle. The Kindle app is a great way to have your Kindle books with you all the time. Even if you have a Kindle you probably don’t carry it around all the time. I love when I have unexpected downtime and I’m able to whip out my phone and continue reading a book. The reading quality is really good. You can manipulate the lighting and text size for what is most comfortable for your eyes.
Google Calendar. It is supremely important for me to be able to update and view my calendar on my phone and desktop. The synced Google calendar is perfect. And because I’m a Gmail user I get the added functionality of being able to add events from invitations I get via email, and things like flight and hotel reservations are automatically added to my calendar from receiving my email confirmations.
What apps can you not live without?
