Apps, How Important Are They?
For the average person, their phone is a second limb and the interactions we have with our phones are on one app or the other. Every other day, new apps enter the market and new updates for the old ones. The changing face of how we work and how we socialize means that whether we like it or not, we get to spend time on our phones.
Doctors and other health specialists advice that we spend lesser time on our phones. Ways to achieve this includes spending less time on social sites and totally deleting some others. Anyway, there are apps that constitute daily functioning for most people especially for work-related stuff.The internet is the school that has no exams.

Below are my 2019 most used apps;
1. Panacea: Gone are the days of always carrying a book around. Now, I have the books right on my phone.
2. Whatsapp: Don’t ask me why. It's cheaper than calling the one thousand and one contacts on my phone.
3. Twitter: Have you seen the drama that goes on there! And those intelligent trends... Twitter is news platform, gist center and social hub all in one.
4. Canva: A design app that allows you create logos, banners, etc. You don’t need to have pre-design knowledge because designing with this app is very easy to learn. There's a premium version but even the free one allows you do a lot.
5. Gmail: Because emails are such a part of the corporate life.
6. Yoga : Yoga is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India. Yoga is one of the six orthodox schools of Hindu philosophical traditions. Its benefits include increased flexibility, increased muscle strength and tone, improved respiration, energy and vitality, maintaining a balanced metabolism, etc.
The one I use gives me a daily reminder when it's time to stretch and a step by step text and video guide to doing any pose. Check any app store for something that works for you.
7. Flo: This one is a menstrual cycle tracker. On it, you can make entries to track what changes your body goes through in the course of a month. It is also useful for someone planning or not planning to get pregnant. It also serves as my diary of some sort. You know how, sometimes, you feel a certain way and do not know whether to blame it on your cycle or not.
8. Dictionary : This one goes without saying. New words are always flying by and one has got to be ready to learn.
9. Chrome: The internet is the school that has no exams. Access to information is a must in these times.
10. Office Suite: Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc. are very important for my daily function.
My camera deserves honourary mention. And my reminder. What were your most used phone apps in 2019?
