Today I decided to share what's on my phone, because why not? You're going to notice how organized my apps are and how I don't have so many like a lot of people do. I like to only keep apps I really need and use often and I don't have any games either (I never find myself playing them). It is one of my biggest pet peeves when people have a very unorganized phone or have a count on an app icon like 100+ messages or emails.
The first thing you see when you unlock my phone is the apps that are always there with an iPhone, I like to keep them exactly the way they are. On the last row though you'll see how I added four apps down there. I have the app Outlook which is what I like to use for my emails, I don't use the Mail app anymore. Then I have Remote which is for Apple TV users and an app called Sleep Cycle. With this app you charge your phone, keep it beside you and set up a time for it to wake you up (I put an alarm on the actual Clock app though to be safe) and it records your sleep. Once you wake up you can see how your sleep was like when you were awake, when you actually slept, went into deep sleep and woke up without realizing sometimes. Last thing I have is the Extras folder with the apps that come with Apple and I don't really use.
Next, when you swipe left you just see four folders. The one that I use the most among many other people is the Social one. On this one we have Twitter, Instagram (user: mystictalesblog), WhatsApp, Facebook, Skype, Pinterest and Bloglovin'. According to my battery usage info on settings, Instagram is the app I spend most of my time on. At least 40 minutes a day, that's crazy.
Next folder is Photography. I used to have quite a few apps on there but realized I didn't really need them. The only ones I use is VSCO for editing and Squaready for flipping a picture of myself horizontally when needed. Then we have Entertainment, where there once again is only two apps. I mostly like to watch YouTube videos on my laptop but the app is a must have for when I'm not able to open my laptop and iBooks is where I like to read my ebooks.
Last folder we have is the one with the most apps, Essentials. First app is Wunderlist which I have talked about in previous posts before, if I'm not able to plan out or write down my tasks on my planner this is the app I use. Then we have Goodreads. I love using this app to see what others are reading, check reviews, put books on my wishlist, books I've read and ones I've bought and need to read. Overall, it's a great app for readers. TeeVee is the only app I've purchased and paying $2.99 is worth it. I watch way too many shows (to find out the shows I've watched and am currently watching click here and here) and because they're a lot I like to keep track of them with a good app like this one. I get notified and there's a count on the icon when a new episode of a TV show launches which is very efficient for me.
Then we have Groupon, Google Maps and Translate. Next app is Monthly Cycles which is perfect for you ladies if you want to keep track of when that time of the month comes. After that we have a religious app and Dictionary/Thesaurus. If you have trouble sleeping or relaxing the app ICanBeFree is very helpful. I like using the Stress Relieve session on school nights when I can't seem to stop thinking, I just play it with the lullaby and I fall asleep easily afterwards. The last three apps are PayPal, Waze and Starbucks. I haven't had the chance to use Waze yet but it is an app that immediately and precisely informs you about traffic and how long it would take you to reach somewhere. I've just now downloaded Starbucks to start collecting points whenever I get a drink from there.
Which of these apps will you be downloading?
