I'm linking up with all the "Not Just A Mom" bloggers. Today the conversation is about favourite phone apps.
Honestly, I don't have a ton of apps on my phone. I don't get excited about each and every place I know having an app for me to access information from my phone. However, I thought I would share the few apps I have that I use fairly regularly.
Honestly, Instagram is probably my favourite app and I check it multiple times a day. I keep up with my blog friends, I keep up with some family members this way, I see what local businesses are up to, and I keep up with friends from church. Instagram is my absolutely my "go to."
Yes, the MLB app is one I often check during baseball season. Nothing makes me happier than seeing notifications from my Jays pop up. This is one I check almost every day during baseball season (which starts in 24 days!!!!!!)
Before Covid, the Disney Cruise app was another one I checked regularly. Before you set sail, you can have a cruise countdown which is so fun. Sadly, our cruise app is currently counting down to a cruise we're not actually going to take (thanks for nothing Covid), but hopefully one of these days, we will be able to cruise again.
You likely aren't as familiar with this app, but this was where I tracked my virtual Camino walk. It's the app for The Conqueror Challenges. I finished my walk this past Thursday (whooo hooo!!!) and now I'm trying to figure out which virtual walk I want to do next and when I want to start it. It was so motivating for me to log my kilometres!
Yes, I like Gardenscapes. I can't remember when I started playing it and I can go a week or so, forgetting to play, but I do like this game. I need some way to garden virtually when I can't do it for real! Hahaha!!! I also have Homescapes downloaded but I don't love it as much and don't play it near as often.
Before Covid, I kept up with coupons through Flipp and would use it for price matching. However, most grocery stores around here have stopped price matching, due to Covid, so I haven't used this in about a year. If we get back to "normal" and stores will price match again, I have a feeling I'll use Flipp more often.
I technically have the FitBit app on my phone but I've never been able to get it to work properly, so I use it on my (very old) iPad. I don't check my FitBit as often, except to track my kilometres for my virtual walk, but I do wear it constantly still. One of these days, I'll probably break down and get an Apple Watch but, as you may have figured out, I'm just not all the tech-y.
I do have a few other apps that I've had to download for the kids' activities (TeamSnap for Sam's baseball and TalkingPoints for Rachel's classroom this year) but I don't use them regularly. Other than that, I don't really have a lot of apps on my phone.
I'm looking forward to reading the other posts in the link up to see what apps I might be missing out on. Or maybe there are some other people out there like me -- not hugely into apps -- and I'll delete even more of my apps. Hahaha!!!
PS. Edited to add, since reading some of these posts I've already downloaded two more apps -- a water reminder one and a hiking one, so I highly suggest you check out the other posts in the link up. You can find the link up here.
