My Favorite Phone App

Writer Wednesday

It’s Writer Wednesdays again!!

This time, my friends and I are chatting about our favorite apps on our phone. I have to admit, my phone is overloaded with apps—some I rarely open, others I don’t go a day without using. Some I’ll cry if they’re accidentally deleted. 😀

Which one is my favorite? Heck, that’s impossible for me to answer. In part because it depends on the time of year or the season or the moment…

But to keep this blog short, let’s see if I can narrow it down.

I have the usual suspects—Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram—all of which I check multiple times a day. Especially if there’s something special going on like an author FB party or a release day. And because I enjoy staying in touch with family, friends and readers.

My daughters have also turned me on to Snapchat. My snaps are limited to select family members and few friends, though. We like to take silly pics and make each other laugh. So those pics are usually the ones we don’t wanna post on social media, we just send to share a chuckle with one another.

But what are a few apps that might not be as common among my author friends and me? Let’s see…

During college football season, you’ll find me checking my University of Florida Alumni Association app before game days. They’ll share updates and news about game day events and times.

You’ll also commonly here the ESPN theme chiming on my cell as I get a score or news alert from my ESPN app.

But my absolute favorite sports app is my MLB (Major League Baseball) app. We are weeks away from MLB’s 2017 Opening Day. Once it’s upon us, my MLB app joins the battle for my absolute all-around favorite. That’s because, if my Chicago Cubs are playing, the MLB app allows me to listen to the live radio broadcast. Or checking the score. Or reading the highlights. And hoping to fly my “W” flag!

Right up there with my MLB app, gunning for the Top App billing, is my Kindle app. I never thought I’d like reading on my cell, but I love that if I’m waiting in line at the grocery store, or meeting someone who’s running late, or wind up with a quiet break at some point in my hectic day, I’ve got multiple books on my phone, waiting to be read.

 

His Perfect PartnerAnd finally, because my debut novel, His Perfect Partner, Book 1 in my new Matched to Perfection series, is now up for pre-order, my Amazon app has become one of my favorites! This debut is a long time coming, so it’s fun to click over to my author page and see my book on-line. 😀

    Great post, Pris. My son and daughter in law love their ESPN apps too. Go Cubbies.

      When my mom and I are together, it’s like an ESPN app echo when notifications start coming through. :-)

    I enjoyed your post, Pris. Kindle is one of my favorite apps, too. Like you, I didn’t think I’d like reading on my phone, but I do. I always have it with me so I’m never caught without something to read.

    Me, too, Carol. It’s really handy when you’re waiting in line at the grocery store or somewhere like that and you’re trying to fill time. :-)

    I am not surprised by your sports apps! I don’t have the Amazon app but I use the Kindle app on my iPad (because I don’t even have a kindle!). And I’ve had to promise the kids I’d stay off Snapchat, at least until they go to college. :)
