Mobile Applications


Dear readers,
I have missed you all. I have been very occupied in my personal life which is why I wasn’t able to write on my space for a few months. Today I am writing about my android mobile applications.
 Home screens and installed apps
It is impossible to deny, that we are now truly in the digital age. If we have to name one gadget which has changed our lives the most, we have to give the credit to our smart phones. They have really changed our lives tremendously. We can’t even image life without it as we have become so dependent on it. It’s surprising how we survived without it only a decade ago. Most of us have a lot of applications installed on our phones. These can help us keep our lives organized, keep us entertained, note down our important lists and also navigate the way. We cannot even imagine life without our cell phone.


 StarTracker, Calendar and Pinterest respectively 
Our worst fear has become losing our mobile phone. I remember when my HTC Wildfire was stolen from my office in 2010, I was devastated. My groceries list was in there, all my phone numbers, To-do list and my weather forecast. Everything turned upside down. Having said all this, I also believe in minimalism and so I try to keep my applications as few as possible and uninstall anything which I may not be using. Due to the prominence of this gadget in our daily lives, I thought it may be interesting to share my most current applications. Following is a list:
 
Built-in Apps I use most often
Clock/Alarm clock
Calendar (Saved important family dates for yearly reminders, has made life stress-free)
