Weigh In - What’s your favorite phone app?

Weigh In - What’s your favorite phone app?



What’s your favorite phone app?




According to an article by TechCrunch.com, in 2008 the iPhone App Store had just surpassed the 10,000  app milestone. Today, the App Store inventory has exploded to over 425,000 apps. That’s a staggering new amount of apps being released every single day.


The less tech savvy may ask, what’s an app? Mobile phone applications, known as apps, are small pieces of  software which are sold online and can even be downloaded for free, giving smartphone users extra – and  often novelty – applications. There are, literally, apps for everything, from apps for cooks to apps for outdoor lovers, apps that track your money or your time, apps for moms and dads, and lots of apps for going out or working out. There are apps for special interests, like golf or photography, even an app that acts like a piano. And apps aren’t just available for iPhones. Apps are also available for Blackberrys and most other handheld devices.




Mind boggling, really. I’m a person who often claims Facebook fatigue and considers shutting down that  app. However, despite the limitless possibilities available, a recent tour through the Freehold Mall held some app surprises. Many people didn’t know if they had apps, or not, on their phones and a surprising number of tweens and teens just own basic cell phones, sans apps. The most popular app I encountered at the mall was overwhelmingly Facebook. Also popular was something called Angry Birds, which I had to look up when I got home. For those not in the know, Angry Birds is “Dangerously addictive but deceptively simple. Angry Birds lets you employ cartoon birds as weaponized projectiles in an escalating war against a posse of  egg-stealing green pigs. (Don’t ask.) Revenge relies on vectors and basic principles of physics, but the gist  is to use a slingshot to angle an ‘angry bird’ at the smug little pigs. The real challenge? Putting your phone  down once you’ve started.”




Ok, so if you need to fill up some time, check out these apps. Here’s a list of 2011’s most popular phone  apps, according to Time Inc. Magazine:
