Re: Your most-used & favourite mobile apps?

Well I could certainly recommend games if I lived in the Play Store @Marjo - Lord knows I've played enough of them 🤣

As you know I love Word Cookies but I can also recommend Word Garden, Word Connect, Word Bakery, Word Choco and Word Stars.

Word Stars is particularly fun. Not only do you have to find words but once you found all the words you're given a word missing 3 letters. You have to find the 3 missing letters from the words you've found. Starts off easy but gets more difficult as you progress.

Am also into bubble shooter games big time. Used to be useless at it. But for some reason in old age I've got better 🤣

And perhaps I should have said I also live in Amazon pre-ordering films and TV boxsets and downloading books and just browsing. In fact, any non-food item I buy is through Amazon; Waitrose for food.

Sounds as if I use my phone a lot - I do!


Lover of all things Samsung. Currently using Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus 128gb

I haven't looked at the "official" ranking on my phone yet (either battery or data), as thought it would be fun to try and guess first, then I'll have a look and see whether Android agrees with me.

 

  1. Spotify
  2. Audible
  3. Chrome
  4. Facebook
  5. WhatsApp
  6. Gmail
  7. Natwest
  8. VLC
  9. Amazon
  10. Android Pay

That's what I'm thinking, will see what the phone says in a moment.

No just seeing 0 @Wa10. However I physically typed mine in, I didn't use the numbered list facility at the top of the page....

^^ Snap. On PC too.
I think mine would be as follows:
1. Kindle
2. Podkicker
3. Radio X
4. Chrome
5. Candy Crush
6. Mi Fit
7. Tu
8. YouTube
9. Strava
10. Twitter
It is a little difficult to tell as I have some apps set to ignore for battery usage (trying to stop pop ups). Might clear the settings for a week and see what crops up...
Now using the LG V30.

Previously: LG G4, Sony Z1, HTC Sensation XE, Samsung Omnia i900
Try the Tech Galaxy Note 4
Try the Tech Lumia 640LTE and Microsoft Band

Re: Your most-used & favourite mobile apps?

I forgot we had this topic @Anonymous! Smiley Very Happy I looked at my list as it's been a while and there's been a couple of interesting developments since I last checked...

 

So last year I had these as most-used (based on the battery usage):

  1. Netflix (been binge-watching Star Trek lately! Much better than Charlie's Angels!)
  2. Amazon
  3. Bingo Blitz
  4. SimCity
  5. WhatsApp
  6. Safari
  7. Ilta-Sanomat (it's a Finnish news app)
  8. Groceries
  9. Uber
  10. Facebook

 

But checking now, it's changed a bit:

  1. Fairway Solitaire
  2. Ilta-sanomat (the Finnish news app)
  3. WhatsApp
  4. News (the Apple default news app)
  5. Facebook
  6. Safari
  7. Uber
  8. Gmail
  9. App Store
  10. Just Eat

So basically I've been playing only one very addictive mobile game instead of many for a while, moved from using Neflix on my phone to a bigger screen, and done less shopping... yahoo My parents recently got WhatsApp on their mobiles which probably contributed to the jump to number 3. They used to be technophobes and now look at them, making video calls and everything on their mobile!
