Seemingly everyone has a smartphone nowadays. These mini computers are widely available and have changed the way that we go about our day to day lives. Thanks to smartphones we are able to stay connected to the internet in every way and have the luxury of installing useful applications. Here is a quick primer for the types of apps that you’ll want to include on your homescreen.Email: It probably shouldn’t come as a surprise, but having an email app installed on your phone has to be a priority. So much gets done through email now. You can use it to email your employees, or read one that your grandchildren sent to you. Most professional communication now happens through email and having it on your phone will ensure that you’re never behind or missing something important.
- Fitness: Apps can be a great way to keep you motivated to reach your fitness goals. There are apps available to keep track of the steps you take, how many calories you burn throughout the day and even reminders of when you need to work out! You don’t need to keep more than a few fitness apps, but do some exploring and find the best ones that fit your goals.
- Social Media: It should be no surprise th
at including a social media app (or four) on your smartphone is suggested. Millions of people use social media each and every day, so keeping your favorite site’s app on your phone only makes sense. Again, you don’t need to keep every app you use, but keeping the top two or three that you use every day is a good idea.
- Groupon: In addition to finding deals on products, you can also search for restaurants in your area. The Groupon Pages section of Groupon helps you find the best restaurants. You can read reviews and recommendations, find basic business information, and see if there are any deals available.
Not everyone will keep the same applications on their phone, but everyone will have some applications. Find the ones that mean the most to you and put them on your homescreen, that way you won’t have to think twice about accessing them.
