As much as I hate to admit it, I spend way too much time on my phone, computer, iPad, etc. then I do actually interacting with people. No, I’m not anti-social nor do I quiver at the thought of having to engage with other people (although I do think EIS, hahah s/o to Ijeoma). However, if I’m being honest with myself, 70 percent of my day is spent connected to some form of technology. Whether I’m at work, class, home, car, I am, in some shape or fashion, connected to the cyber world. From laptops, to tablets, to smartphones, it seems like I would be completely lost without the modern day, instant gratification, type of technology that I’ve become so accustomed to. I do sometimes wonder whatever happened to the days when you had to check the yellow pages for ya homegirl’s number? Or heading to Ask Jeeves to get a MapQuest print out for your 9 hour car ride? Or what about using slow-ass dial-up to instant message your friends on AIM (who needs texting anyways?). If you agreed with any of my last three points, I need you to get with the times sistah girl! No shade to those who appreciate the 1990-2000s technology struggle but let’s be real: we all have busy schedules and the more we can get done in a 24-hour period the better. So naturally I’m an extreme advocate for maximizing my time as efficiently as possible. Below are my top 10 must have app every 20-something year old should have on their phone that don’t include Snapchat, Venmo, Pintrest, Facebook, or Instagram.
I hope this list is helpful to some of you guys. Let me know if you have or have tried some of these app.
