Which Apps can I not live without? None. Because I’m a guy who can live without my phone. These are the five Apps I regularly use (other than my Email and Twitter apps).
#1. Notebook and Daybook
Yeah, those are two Apps that do the same thing. I use these to write my stories when I’m on the commute either to or from work. On these apps, I record my thoughts, write down insane things I observe along the road and write quotes that I find life changing when I read stuff online. These apps keep my writing alive.
I just checked my Notebook to see the last story I’d drafted. “There’s a lizard in my house. A baby lizard. It must’ve crept in through my window which is always open.”
I use Daybook to space the stories I want to post on Instagram. Oh, I’m on Instagram by the way. You can follow me here. J
#2. Nature Sounds
I’ve had this App for under three months. I love it. When I want to breathe, to calm down, to relax, to sleep, to feel the sound of nature around me, I turn this one on.
I can play the sound of tranquil waves, a peaceful waterfall and the rain. I can accentuate these sounds with the singing of birds, a classical piece playing on piano, a tambourine.
It’s a good app for meditation, with scented candles around you. I’ve never bought scented candles. I don’t even know why I’m writing about them.
I listen to a lot of radio on my daily commute. Morning radio especially. I’ll tune in to Radio One’s He Says/She Says program every morning. People with issues in their relationships or lives send through their problems. Listeners call in to give advice or share their thoughts thoughts.
I tune in to Radio City’s Jam Floor Fillers, the TBT edition with Benon DJ every Thursday evening. Benon DJ’s show is a drug. He plays such nasty old school mixes that give you nostalgia you don’t want it to end. I love my radio app.
When you live in Kampala and don’t own a car like me, you’ve got to find your way around this city. With the hundreds of motorcycles that are careless on the road, you look for the safest option. That’s SafeBoda for me. I like the app’s cashless payment option. It means I can find my way around even when I have no cash in my wallet.
I saw someone tweet about this App last year. I gave it a try. I don’t have a TV so it works for me when I want to watch sports. I watch Formula One on this App. I watch football on it. I watched Chelsea tearing Arsenal to shreds in the Europa League final on this App. It’s a convenient app.
