Gone are the days of standard phone calls or text messages or the time where people were only able to access the internet from homes. With the addition of many different mobile phone apps an entire world has been opened up and completely revolutionized the way we communicate and interact with each other.

A mobile application or app can be defined as

software that can run on a mobile device such as a cell phone or MP3 player that will allow the device to perform specific tasks that are typically restricted to PCs.

In January 2011, the American Dialect Society named ‘app’ the word of the year for 2010.  This action alone says a lot about the rapidly growing popularity surrounding phone apps and is a huge indication of our obsessions with apps.

Pros

With an abundance of different apps available, they offer a huge amount of convenience into our hectic modern-day society. With programs designed for just about everything we are able to effectively manage our lives and keep up to date with banking, sending and receiving emails, entertainment all from the palm of our hand.

Cons

Like any new technology apps can become all too-consuming and distract you from other priorities running the risk of becoming too reliant on your Smartphone.

Top 3 Apps I recommend:

  1. GoogleMaps
  2. Instagram
  3. CommBank
