So I was looking for a reader replacement. CIO Online put together a nice list of alternatives. After reviewing that list, I decided that feedly seemed to be the app that best met my needs. I downloaded the feedly add-on for my browser(s) as well as the app for my mobile devices. And that got me thinking... do I need the app on my mobile devices? After all, mobile devices tend to become clogged with too many apps, and mine are no exception.
And that got me thinking... what mobile apps am I really using?
A number of months ago I did a post about my favorite apps here. Reviewing it, I noticed that I still regularly use most of the apps I listed there. But, those critical... use every day... can't do without... are few. In fact, I had listed 9 apps I said I use every day and another 16 I use often.
I realized, though, that there are really only 4 apps I use every single day. And, if I didn't have access to these 4 apps every day, my day would be less productive. And, if I had to replace one or more of these apps it would be, at best, a pain, and maybe not possible at all.
Here's the list of my critical 4 apps (in no particular order):
- DoggCatcher (with the Presto Sound library) - for podcasts (blog post)
- Audible - for audiobooks (blog post)
- Google Task Organizer (GTO) - I've tried many todo list/organizers and like this best
And yes, I did remove the reader app and add the feedly app.
What are your critical, use 'em everyday, gotta have 'em, apps?
