On Apps

I am a smartphone user since 2010. I went from a Sony Ericsson K800i to an iPhone 3G and the world of apps. I then jumped to a Nexus 4, which served me well for 3 years and now to the excellent Google Pixel. Apps were not as popular back in 2010 as they are now and app stores were not as messy as they are now.

I currently have more than 150 apps (stock apps included) installed on my 128GB Google Pixel.

I use quite a lot on a regular basis:

  • Android Messages
  • Camera
  • Google Photos
  • Google Keep
  • Google Calendar
  • Google Analytics
  • Inbox for Gmail
  • Feedly
  • Dropbox
  • Shazam
  • Pocketcasts
  • Spotify
  • 1Password
  • VSCO
  • Google Maps
  • Authy
  • Instagram
  • Facebook Messenger
  • Private Internet Access (VPN)
  • Weather Timeline
  • S Health

Available only in the UK:

  • Monzo
  • YoYo Wallet
  • Three UK
  • Oxford Bus Company
  • Lloyds Bank
  • Trainline
  • CityMapper
